    You build stuff with what you have availdable or what your budget stretches to. If cardboard is what you choose to go with then good for you. I see nothing wrong with this, as I've seen cardboard armour done in the past with very desirable results.
    More power to you, looking forward to seeing how this all turns out.

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Alright so here is a huge-ish update. Lol I have been working on a vest...Nuff said. Now you will all ask for pictures, but I think I will wait until it is full complete before I post anything. It's coming out awesome.

    Well I changed the color sceme of the mando from desert to woodland.

    This is what it started as when I repainted it.




    Close up of the detail before extreme weathering



    Started to weather it the way that Jax does it. It works GREAT! Thanks Jax!


    Closeup


    More Close up details


    Left Breast Plate


    Right breast plate

    Hope you enjoyed this update.

    Wow, man... the weathering looks great! And that's some crazy contrast between the woodland and the red! Lol, I recognize the shoulder bells.

    "Impressive, most impressive." Hard to belive that's made from card board dude. I think I'll give it a go myself instead of gassing myself to death heating plastic!

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Alright well I turned this into a costume thread.

    My helmet is turning out great. It is pretty rough now, but the first-ish layer of body filler went on today.



    I have started on a custom rifle for my mando. You guys only get to see the barrel. tomorow I will post pics of the body of the rifle. It is very very simple.




    The vest is not fully complete yet and will not be shown until The entire costume is all done.


    The flightsuit will be OD green, or some shade of green.

    Sneak Peak of the Helmet. Since this is a custom, no other details will go on this except my custom radio on the right ear, and the left ear piece.

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Things are going great for me. My uncle comes home from the army tomorow, so life cant get any better.

    The cardboard for the details were so thick. It took me half an hour to cut it all out.


    Here is a good shot of the details


    Well here is what my blaster looks like. It just got its final layer of glass filler and is awaiting a ton of sanding. Thank you parents for my electric sander!

    That raw yellow bucket without the visor cut looks like a trooper from Haze!

    I thought the same thing! Makes me wonder how good a cracked visor with an eyehole would look on a custom Mando helmet...

    The weathering on the armor looks fantastic! Is that red supposed to be blood splattered on? That would make for a really BA and menacing looking mando.

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    your welcome. a bit much for my tastes, BUT the point is you did the weathering correctly. nice overall detail. id love to see what it looks like in a few years after some events and crazy stuff. THAN it will look even MORE weatherd.




    cant wait for more. you get the vest done yet?

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Thanks for the kind words. And Jax, the vest will be delayed for a while because my uncle just came back from the army and I am trying to spend alot of time with him.

    But until then. I have a question for all. What do you prefer for the undersuit.

    Woodland BDU or
    OD flightsuit

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Alright ill go with OD. Check out the new helmet guys
    the helmet is 90% finished. It needs the foam padding inside. the fan, and the custom side panels for the sides and one for the back.

    Also I need to slap a visor into the sucker and I am all done. I wish monday was may 25. Then I would go to school in this, as I will be done by then.

    This is what it looked like before weathering



    While working on my helmet, I noticed something was popping out of the ground and I recovered it. I found this











    Isnt that neat? I think I might just scrap my helmet project and use this one. It contains alot of the needed materials. I think this belonged to Fango Jett

    Re: My mandalorian armor progress

    Updated last night. Let me know what you guys think of the helmet.
    Edit- Im buying a visor for this but I dont know what size I should get it. How would I go about measuring the area for the visor? I am getting a T-Visor from T-visor.com
