I have been working on a Jodo Kast for some time now, but have hit a slow spot (wait'n for $$$ to get parts made)
So to get my armor fix, I started on a Kal Skirata. I know it is not a 501st costume. I just want to make it!! after reading the books I knew that i wanted to try and make a Skirata costume at some point. So Started now. (a week ago to tell the truth )
Pics of this costume are few at best. And the books only say so much. This is what I have done so far.
----UPDATE---- Became the 1st 501st Legion Approved Kal Skirata in May of 2010 as Well as the Mandalorian Mercs. Here is some of the info I used to become official.
