    Mini-Mandalorian Build Thread

    I am currently working on my son's Mini-Mando. I have built a custom Mando for myself over a year ago, and my 8 year old son wants to go with me on JediOKC gigs, so I decided to do it. It's been fun. Here are the build pics of the helmet. I still have to do the visor, but would like to know what you Nervods think...

    Started with a kids SWAT team helmet and wrapped it in Sintra...

    Some Bondo Later...


    ...then painted and son wearing it proudly...

    Looking good. You might wanna make the front brow a little shorter, unless that is the look you are going for then, it came together nicely.

    Hey BobaFettDaddy!

    Looking sweet. If you have any questions about putting together the soft parts, just let me know.

    I think that front brow helps for glasses wearing under the helmet? If that wasn't the intent, then you found it by accident. =)

    So far so good for a kids rig Jai. Glad to see you still into mando gear, every time we see you at DCon your in your proton pack. I hope 2009 you and your verd'ika will troop the parade with us! =)
