    Nov 9, 2003, 6:52 PM - My custom Mandalore helmet #1

    This is my first attempt at any helmet. I've been working here and there on my custom armor for awhile and I finally finished the helmet. It's a DP '97 (Only thing I could find in my price range at the time). The only thing I think I screwed up on is that the rank bars from Boba show through the silver for some reason. They weren't there when I primed, sanded, primed and even after the silver job. They only reappeared once I sealed it, weird huh? Oh well, they're not that noticeable in person. Anyway, please be nice, this was my first attempt at a helmet, I'd like to get some opinions on it.





    Thanks for looking!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say what it says. It reads "JASTER". The idea I had for my custom was Jaster Mereel in his prime, before the Mandalores split.

    Right on man. I like the aurebesh too. Are those decals?? Where did you get them, I was hoping to put some aurebesh on my armor here and there. Keep sending pics.

    Actually, all the non-silver parts were hand painted with acrylics (I'm a newbie to painting, I screwed up part of my armor with masking, so I didn't want to risk the helmet). I wish they were decals, I'd add more to my armor is that were the case.

    Looks very cool! It reminds me of a more weathered version of another board memebers helmet. Can't wait to see the full suit.

    I love those colors. Great job

    You should stop by my chat board and post your progress as well. I need more people over there. Especially custom mandalorians.

    Really good job! So where is the screw up?
    I like those colors also. The writing does give the helmet a unique look of its own. Nice touch.

    Thanks everybody! And yes, this definitely was a DP'97. It looked a whole lot worse when I got it.

    I must say, you've done well if that was originally a '97!

    Very nice! I love seeing people do diffrent versions of the mandalore helmet.The great thing about doing your own is no matter how many helmets you put next to each other they are all slightly different and unique.Very good job.-Jason

    Thanks again everyone. The original color scheme I was going to go with was Jango's from Open Seasons #3. I've changed many things since then, but the helmet turned out similar. When I saw Foxbatkllr's suit at SDCC this year, I thought to myself 'Damn, someone beat me to it'. But no worries, the suit itself will be very different from the others.

    Nice bucket, I'm in the process of making 3 sets of armor. Which means 3 different color schemes, & I think the color scheme you did may inspire me to make a similar but not exact color for 1 set of armor.

    I'll take some pics tonight of my first 2 sets that are nearly completed & post them A.SAP -

    Again nice work, Aurabesh looks fantastic!
