    I really like the idea. Really, really nice color coordination and everything. This has the potential to be eally cool.

    A word of advice, though; I would suggest heavy weathering. With your current colors, if left new it will look too much like some sort of trooper. A silver undercoat would be great and probably some dirt and mud.

    I think it's just sort of a similar look...

    well here are some pictures. i actually have not worked on anything sense i started this thread lol but atleast i am not just dreaming about making a mando im just slow lol. sorry they look bad all i had to use to take the pics was my phone..




    i am going to do away with the dent b/c i dont want it to look like a boba bucket. the only thing i have left to do is do the key slot things in the back and see if that cant kick my butt and it will be mostly done. the ear things are going to be rough lol

    Nice build! You're off to a start and a half there. I'm another Cody fan so it's great to see a Mando inspired by him, are you considering a Cody visor on the lid too?

    Nice. Thats gonna be pretty light, I'd be a little concerned about damage though. That stuff might dent up pretty easily.

    yeah it would! but the foam was just a base it was glassed over and then some bondo made it nice and smooth
