    My New Style Mando Armour

    Here is my New Style Mando Armour that im working on, using Sintra. I have gone for a different look to the normal Mando Armour, but still have the same sections. Chest and Leg Armour already cut out and sanded, ready for paint job, after shaping with heat gun. Hope you like the look.

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Thanks guys, Im working on my Helmet also, I have pics of how it looked when i bought it, up to how it looks now, ready for the final paint job. That too is slightly different in the way it looks. I'm not going to have a stork, just to of the same looking ears. Here is a pic of the Lid, before any work on it started.

    Here is two pics of the Helmet, with the Dent filled in and a new ear made out of the Sintra put on the side of the Lid. I will post over the weekend some more pics of the Armour and the Helmet.

    Before I shoot for the night, here is my shoulder bells to add to the look. You will have to forgive the quality of the shots, my camara is on its way out, hehe.

    I'm waiting for my T-Visor to arrive in the post, so it's all starting to take shape. The more I do the more it begins to look great.

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Here is a look at the colour scheme that my lid will end up looking more like, when i get the paint this coming week, the rest of the Armour will also follow the same scheme... the blue in the back of the Helmet are cut outs, with mesh inside

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    I have no weapons just yet, but was thinking of scratch building a rife to use with my outfit. I'm thinking of a rifle about the same lenght as a Stormtrooper rilfe, no need for a full lenght job. At least with a ST type it can be holstered to my leg. I have found a few things around the place that look like they might work for know. I'll post some pics later today....
