    What make is that helmet if I may ask? Paint job looks great...but the shape of the helmet itself needs a touch of work.

    Very nice paint job! I tested my Jango OS paint scheme on a Rubies too. Even though it is the wrong shape, it gives you good practice for the real deal.

    I've seen some pretty good Rubies in my time, the only real problem with them is getting the shape down. Head to the link below and follow the tutorial on adding a craft ring to give it the proper shape, I don't think you have to sign up on the Mercs boards to see the armor sections.

    The vest is a boba vest but the armor will be custom mando. It looks odd not on my body but once i don it it all moves to the proper spots
