    Nice work. I may have to take a look at Hot Topic for some items when we get started on my custom fem-mando.

    Re: My old and new armor

    Absolutly... I take it you're doing a custom and not a Fett? If that's the case, learn what you can from overall construction and paint techniques here at TDH. But, if you're building a custom, www.mandalorianmercs.com should be your home! Stop in there, check out all the completed pieces and the WIP threads. Also, check out all the tutorials. Then, use the Mando maker to put your design down and start building!

    I would suggest that you take your time. There's no hurry. With time and upgrades, your skills will improve and you will end up with a set more like you initially envisioned. My first set took about 8 months to build. The newest set of plates of made for my newest kit took 3 days and look 100 fold better.

    Re: My old and new armor

    Well, short of actually making repairs, I think I've finally completed this set of armor. I went up into the hidesert area around my house today and snapped off some pix. The changes from the last set of pix...
    Crushgauntlets are complete
    Added 2 new ab sections
    New shoulder plate
    Rank ropes for MMCC

    Enjoy!

    Re: My old and new armor

    Here are some pix of me at SDCC.
    I made a few changes to the kit for SDCC.
    1. Mirrored green visor
    2. left side side swing RF/aiming reticle
    3. red Journeyman's Protector girthbelt
    4. dropped the pauldron
    5. added left shoulder plate
    6. moved right chest ammo pouch onto left shoulder plate.






    I want to get out and do another photoshoot soon with these changes. I'm also going to play with my brown flightsuit underneath to see how that looks so once my Neo is done and I attend 4 day events for all 4 days, I can maybe throw an alternate look out there for A'den, tan flighsuit one day brown another.
    Possible future changes... thinking about thigh plates and possiblechanging the webgear belt, pouches and holsters to leather. These are not priorties and will come after the Neo is done, if at all.

    Re: My old and new armor

    Well, I made some upgrades to my kit and finally got around to doing pix today. Here's the list...
    1. Skirata Sigil on chest, Applicant Approval Team sigil on left shoulder
    2. New kama
    3. Added elbows
    4. New knee's
    5. Thigh plates
    6. Repainted the cod armor
    7. All straps, except leather straps on greaves, have been concealed in the suit.
    I think that's it... lol!
    Enjoy!
