    Thanks for the kind words of encouragement guys and gals. I'm going to work a little on my girlfriend's Rav Bralor, then bust the wacom out again and work a little more on this sketch.

    And to answer the question- yep that's a motorcycle visor, simply cut down to fit in the area.

    Good eye on the resistors! No broken piece of technology ever leaves my home intact. Gotta harvest greeblies somewhere!

    I think you should make the ribs raised for that little touch of detail... as for the resistors, cool, I got tons of little parts like that, I got a broken memorycard adaptor, the chip from a blood glucometer, abroken chinese ipod etc.

    Gotta love 'found' parts, heck I even used a retaining clip from a kids toy (retainer to hold toy into box) on my left cheekbone, look close at my avatar.

    Good work keep goin

    I don't know about John's Death Mando, but on mine, the one this bucket is for, the ribs were going to be raised, as well as building up the spine on the abdomen plate and back plate. The thighs, forearms, and shins were also going to have raised sections for bone.

    These were my concept sketches, my orginal, and then some refinment ideas to be even more skeletal:

    Final concept art my Lonewolf for me:



    Armor rough cut from Trashcan, the spine and ribs have not been glued onto the armor panels yet, along with my world war II era Russian ammo pouches for my belt, got them for like $8 at a flea market:

    I love the theme you've got going. It's very different, but still manages to be instantly recognizable as a mando. Good job.

    Cadet, that is looking awesome, so your brother is the OP on this thread? Is he making your helmet for you?

    I love the bones, your gonna put bondo on them and round them up a little right?

    It looks freaking cool, you gotta put some glow powder into some paint and paint it to glow in the dark.

    Wow! I can say that I usually look down on custom mandos (they usually look bad) but these are sweet! This really makes me want to do up a custom!

    Your new armor looks great. I do have to say your first helmet is very tight. Can wait to see this finished
