my progress...so far (pics)

    Re: my progress...so far (pics)

    First and foremost with a resin helmet (or anything else made of similar material) is do not drop it... As far as customizing your bucket, I'd recommend (if I haven't already) buying the past few issues of Knights of the Old Republic comics. They show several pages full of ancient Mandalorians. If you look closely you'll notice that they're armor is vaguely similar but it seems that most Mandalorians from past to the future can have radically different armor. So that's set me thinking about how "custom" my custom really is...It seems that many of us have created a "custom" that's essentially Boba although the armor is colored differently...Sorry to rant a bit, I thought it might be helpful to remind us that the Mandalorian spirit tends to breed Individualism. Hopefully some of my ideas may live up to that spirit and prove to be original...

    Make the main color black, otherwise the blue will just look out of place with your current color scheme. Here's a couple ideas:
    http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24...1/example1.png You oculd use a darker grey here if you wanted
    http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24.../example2.pngI know it looks purple, but it supposed to be a lighter blue, or you could do vise-versa with the different blues
    http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24...1/example3.png mostly blue on the face
    http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y24...1/example4.png not much blue on the face

    There are alot more variations, those just what I think seem to go with the current color scheme you have.

    As for customization, if you read about the Neo-Crusaders and the Mandalorian Supercommandos, those two Mando sects seems to have a semi uniform approch to there armor. Although they could customize them, the Supercommando's armor all seemd to be the same or reminicent of each other, at least in the chest area. FYI, the Boba and Jango armor are both Supercommando armor types.

    And just wandering, are you gearing this towards a specific type of Mando? A sniper, infantry, spec ops, ect? Just curious

    Now that is a NERF mod! Do you have a step by step tutorial or at least a parts list? I made on of my own once which is to say just a repaint of the Nerf Maverick.
    why is that in this thread?
    make a new one

    they arent great, i would just buy some sintra, mold it, and glue on a rocket, because that is what he does.

    My gauntlets I like, but they werent worth the money at all.

    And no more progress, i am waiting til it is done

    Well C4 is almost here, My snaps on my armor are done, this weekend I am taking my knee armor and bucket to a friend's house (same guy who does my snap work) to paint.


    My mom ( Yes I dont know how to sew) hasnt finished my Kama, nor my Cape yet, we have this awesome looking chain to hook the cape up, and I still need to weather it, along with taking in the Jumpsuit to look better.

    Here are some pics of Clay's helmet that we've been painting over the weekend. Also, we will be laser cutting some armour for him to replace what he all ready has.
