    don't forget to cut out the areas for the chest display lights (even if you back it so that it's solid like Jango's) and add the parts to the central diamond. It's detail like that, that finishes armour and makes it look more realistic to the movies.

    well that sounds kinda hard for my skills,and also...does every mando have that?,becuase if your a different type of mando,i dont think you would want lights from your rangefinder or from your armor
    it would give you away if your a hunter..or a sniper even...so i am just wonderin

    it's funny, i just got the same sets of armor in the mail today, so my gear currently looks the same as yours. i like how you did your gauntlets, those are pretty cool and original. and i agree on at least cutting out the slots on the armor. i'm going to try to lay my hand on a dremel tool for just such a reason. details are everything.

    This looks like Schuby1's work.
    Did you make this yourself or get it from ebay?
    I have a couple of sets of his armor (clone trooper custom, and a boba suit)
    that I would like to sell. Its great for a beginners halloween costume and im sure if modified enough could be an awesome suit of armor.

    and my weapons:




    as you can see the lights are from the nerf gun,and the e-11 also lights up (toy)
    i didnt show the picture of the e-11 with its lights on,just because everyone knows it,but no one uses one of these nerf guns..the nerf gun also includes a rail system...a rail system on a dart gun! so i willl put a scope or something on it.
    and the e-11 i may mod with some vauum cleaner parts so it will be my own blaster

    Armor is looking pretty good so far.

    Some of us use nerf blasters. Here is a thumbnail pic. PM-30 blaster is mine.

    well i bought some canvas for my kama, and cape, so any suggestions on that would be good

    yesterday i soaked the fabric in tea, and rubbed coffee into it, although the coffee doesnt do much at first glance it does add something that i like. I also experimented with burn holes, and it looks great

    i have visited clonetroopers.net for the kama stuff, looks pretty simple but i dont have a sewing machine so i cant hem the edges, that way it doesnt unravel on me.

    any suggestions?


    vest- on its way
    boots-already have
    gloves-nomex ones i used to use on my TIE pilot
    jumpsuit-have had for a while
    armor- just needs snaps, and knee armor still needs to be painted
    helmet-being built right now, or its on its way to me
    gauntlets-need trimming from the back since they are a lil big for me
    t-visor-2 friends of mine are making me one
    kama-soak in tea, coffee, acrylic washes, burn holes
    cape-same as above ^^^, except i wont use the boba fett method of attaching the cape, but i dont want to make it look like theres a string around my neck, so i will need to hide it somehow



    this seems like alot, but i am almost finished with it!

    i am also going to trim my armor even though i already painted it, it is really bugging me, so i am just gonna sand it a bit with the dremel, and maybe sand the bottom ab piece a bit more than i already have (not shown in pics).


    anyone have any suggestions from my paint scheme on where to paint what colors?

    Yep, lots of us use Nerf blasters of one variety or another. I'm still not sure what PM designation my Nerf blaster falls under with the flechette missile launcher beneath the barrel. It's still unfinished as I have some weathering and detailing to do yet, so don't judge the paint too harshly. Oh, and the pinkish colors aren't on the blaster. I loaned out my camera equipment and enough said... I'll get some better pics once I get it done. I also have a Nerf CS-6 which I've just about finished chopping it apart so it doesn't look exactly like all the others folks. So there are definitely more of us that are using the Nerfs and some have become really cool props. I've made about a half dozen pairs of these blasters-I don't know what to do with them all! I can't wait to see Cylrul's progress on his Nerf to see what he has in mind for it. Once it's done you'll be a fellow Nerf Herder!

    I don't have so much advice as I do an idea. I always thought that it would be one heck of a cool thing if you could somehow get the triangles above the visor to light up.
