Well here goes, I have been working on the look of my Rifle, its been made out of Plumming pipe and sintra, with a hand grip from a tape gun. Having the tape gun reversed the plate provides a guard for the hand. The scope is just a test.... Once its all rubbed down and filled, i can under coat it then finish off with a black coat. Then weather it a little, and add more detail.

Here is a pic of my Upper body Armour, now with its final undercoat of paint. Also in this is my Helemet, all the shown Armour is now ready for the Camo Job later this week.... I had to light this pic with a lamp, (Mood-lighting) due to the poor lighting and the fact it's all black now........
Also I have added a pic showing the Armour on my brown vest, made from pleather.
Really nice job! Very creative, and nice execution.
Looks GREAT!! I have to get off my rear and get mine done now.
I have been working on my rifles scope today, the scope is made out of part of a push bike pump, and some light fitings, with a green lens. It will now be mounted onto the the rifles left side. Also are some pics of the Scope where it will be mounted....

The rifle will be a duel weapon, the upper section of the rilfe will be used as a Blaster, like the Stormtroopers, and the lower section with the longer barrel section will be the Sniper rilfe used along with the Scope. I have already made the cooling holes for the blaster section, but have not added this to the rilfe yet. This part will be added after the rilfe is painted, and will show a metal mesh under it, visable though the holes. The pic below will give you an idea what I mean....... I'll keep you posted how the Weapon and the Armour is going........
a very unique and insteresting armor.............keep the good work!
Bro, I like where this project is going! The armor is a fresh new way to look at it.
MUCH RESPECT to anyone who scratch bulids a weapon and makes it look SW!
Well here are a few more progress pics of my rifle, I have added some screws to give the rilfe a more detailed look.
I have worked on my Helmet also, it's now got its final coat of primer, and has its darker undercoat, ready for Camo look. The Helmet now has it's visor, which makes the Helmet look cool, as do all Mando's.
Looking good, I'm interested to see how you do your camo paintjob.
What color is it painted now? I'm really interested to see how it will look. I saw your concept art and like it a lot.
Wow that looks so good!! I love the blaster...its great when people just make this out of nothing really!! Good luck for the rest of it!!
My Helmet colour at this time along with the Armour is Primer Black. Im now working on a way to wear my Helmet while getting around the problem of my glasses not fitting. And a blind Mando is not a good Mando.....
I have worked on a few ideas to get round my glasses problem, I first made a pair out of Sintra, I then made a pair out of Pleather .
I have now sorted this problem, and it involved using Valcro, see pics below. I can now wear my Helmet and also have Perfect sight, and still use my glasses. I have cut the arms off and fixed with a strip of Valcro. Now if asked by anyone if they wanted to try the Helmet on, I can just remove the lenses... Well it works for me......
[quote=Darth Valcar;230646] Good for Sniper work on Endor and the like kinda worlds.
awesome look! damn ewoks will never know what hit em!... give em a lil hate for all the scouts out there!
Know what you mean by the glasses problem. Cool idea!
Here is a better look at the Idea that I have for my Mando Armour, I'm hoping to get it as close to one of the following pictures as possible. You will notice that I have what might be a full lenght cape or just a waist cape, this is marked on the drawings i have made in my pc paint package in red... The Armour will be sitting on top of a light green all-in-one garment.
I was thing of using something like that as the waist cape, sort of thing. I have found a few places that sell it on evilbay.....
Instead of a regular cape, how about a large cape that acts as a partial ghillie suit? You could basically use a shoulder to calf cape in an olive drab color, then attach ghillie type strips to the back of it. It would stay out of the way when walking/running but would be useful when laying prone or leaning against a tree. You could also incorporate a ghillie hood that can be easily pushed back off the helmet, when not in use. Just a few thoughts. It's coming along nicely.
Thanks Hunter, I was thinking along those lines also about the ghillie. I was planing of using a hood also, that why I dropped the idea of the having the boba/Jango kinda rangefinder. Yes thats a great idea about having the ghillie, attached to the back of a cloak, with hood....
This is some fantastic armor, dude! I love the paint scheme and the armor vest. I can't wait to see the rest of it. Are you doing a jet pack or are you going "packless"? I love the gun, too. It's really original.
