    Re: My Kal Skirata -WIP-

    I am definitely looking forward to seeing this one done Kal'buir. I am a huge fan of the Republic Commandos!

    The claw marks are great, I am doing something similar to mine.

    Re: My Kal Skirata -WIP-

    Not much of an update but here is the westar I will use for the costume.


    Going to have a holster on my right leg like Jango has. Just for the 1 westar. The cell phone sux at pics but this is what I did.......
    Painted the barrel section aluminum and then weather'd it up. The handle looks darker then it is. I went with a wood colored brown then weather'd it up as well.

    I used a brown/wood look for the grip cause when I think of Kal (traditional mando, strong mando values and a bit older in yrs) I think of a gun slinger from the wild west. So I made the blaster kinda like how a 6 shooter would look. I thought maken it look a bit more dated would fit the character pretty well.

    Next up will be working on the gauntlets and mod'n the left one to hold the 3 sided knife.

    Are you planing to build a custom Verp for Kal? Ram Zerimar/Ray Ramirez built the archtype for verps, it's what Kren Traviss used as her inspiration for the gun. Of course, Kal's is custom so I'm sure it's not the exact same as Ram's but, Ram's would give a good foundation for the direction to go. Several members at Mercs have built them as well basically use plywood and PVC pipe.

    was going to work on that soon. I have to still do the knees and cod as far as armor goes. just dyed all the leather for the ammo belts 30min ago. Have charcol grey material on order and brown fake leather for the vest too. So I hope by the time thats in that all the armor will be done. have a set of ABS gauntlets that should be at my house soon. So I have quite a bit of work left but should be good to go in a month or so.

    Re: My Kal Skirata -WIP-

    Just a wee bit more work has been done.

    Armor all added to the vest:



    Left Gauntlet is about 80% done. Just need to add in the electronics for the flame thower and stick it in place and buy or make a rocket.



    The Right one is about 90% done. Just need to add the 3 sided knife and its holder to it and then I am good to go for that.
    Hope to have the Flight suit ready as well.

    Looking way better than what you showed me from the phone; probably cuz there not the size of a nickel and I can see the detail better. Anyway did you ever get the switch working on the gauntlet or did you just end up taking it back? The Jango's coming along now; started painting the westars, got armor and ammo belt from seeker I'll be picking up at WW, and the holsters of course with guns. Definitely going to need some help with the shins and thighs if your still down. can do it sometime in the future over at wags.

    No problem.

    Did not wire them up yet. Jaster thinks I should get an "open" switch. He said a closed switch means it will be on unless you press it. And thinks the directions that said to get a closed switch were wrong. I am going to pick some up Friday and toss them in place. I think my knee darts are going to be showing up with my gauntlet darts this week some time.

    Also want to build up the last part for the right gauntlet and add the hose thing to it.

    Few more Updates:

    Right Gauntlet - Cut in half and cut down the whip cord section to hold the 3 sided knife.



    Left Gauntlet - Just need the rocket for it, then good to go. Added the lower section to the flame thrower as well (Lower section not added at time of this pic)



    Verp -

    I don't even know who Kal is but I don't care, that is a great looking set of armour! The clawed bucket looks super too. I would say that you've done such an extensive job distressing the helmet that the chest plates look a little too pristine in comparison, though they are weathered nicely. It might be an idea to put a few more dings and scratches in. I don't know about accuracy with this character, so maybe the poor guy just gets thumped in the head a lot!

    scratches maybe, dings never! kal'buir wears proper beskar plates. beskar doesn't dent.

    Then how did Bob'a beskar get all those "dings" as you call them LOL! I am just joshing you LOL!

    Aside from that I have to say I am most impressed with the work you have put into this costume. It is well fitting and I am enjoying the armored neck peace that you have along with the helmet. Looks like someone ran into an ewok LOL!
