    You, sir, are off to a terrific start ... quite impressive! Question for you: are you going to use knee armor, or is that suppose to be part of the shin armor?

    not sure if i'm having knee armour,i think that once i've finished the rest i'll know if i need it.
    having said that i'm just designing a pair now.
    that's for all the kind words,i didn't think that some gauntlets that i made in 10 mintues would have such an effect.i'm touched.

    Re: My Custom Mando Project

    yes its a jango collectors,it will do untill i can sort something else,

    i've just trail fitted everything and still need to sort out armour placement and the flak jackets a little bunched buts heres a weeks worth of costume...

    Re: My Custom Mando Project

    yeah i did the same with my rubies, used it as a trial, im surprised yours turned out as well as it did!
    input id like to add is to widen the vertical T, with that, the horizontal will also come into place and the visor will stand out a lot better against the black imo

    you thought about adding any cool little gadgets to the gauntlets yet?

    I like the gauntlet/glove concept. Think you could build up on them a little? It kind of looks a little plain in that area.

    Test fitting: very good idea! It gives you an idea of what needs to be moved and by how much. I can never tell if something is out of place until I see a picture of myself wearing the costume.

    well to be honest the gauntlets are only temporary,as i'm getting some jango gauntlets that i'm going to repaint in the metallic black and silver theme of my helmet.

    as they're going to be a few weeks i just needed something to break the space up and made those one's.

    i've got a BIG troop tomorrow in nottingham(uk) with my group and although i have a damn fine vader i wanted a comfortable costume too.

    thanks for the input people.I'll post some better pictures soon.
