    My snow mando - Finished!

    UPDATE: My mando is no longer going to be a sniper. Now he's just going to be a big gun carrying bounty hunter. Here's the link to his weapon... http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=33960


    So for my first mando I want to make him a snow mando that is a sniper. I've got a vest on the way, along with a helmet, and should have some metal armor done soon (with the help of the great Novall). Basically the entire outfit will be white, there will be a few black spots here and there. Other than that the only color I plan on having is a red visor. Although he is a mainly a sniper, he is very well trained in hand to hand and close combat. I will also be packing two of the Jango pistols for close quarters. The reason for this is not every bounty will be suitable for a sniping situation.

    Here's some visuals of what I want it too look like (for the most part).


    This is some armor I made a while back, just using this pic as a layout..


    And here, I took the above pic into Photoshop to make look the way I want..


    Also, here is a DLT-19 that I made using wood and pvc pipe. This is what I will be using as the sniper rifle. As soon as the scope arrives I will be mounting it onto the gun..

    This thing is pretty long

    And when the scope is mounted I'm thinking of repainting it like this..


    Let me know what you think.

    Hey! I know that gun! I almost made that same exact gun with the tutorial I found. But then I found the Verpine.. Though I might still make mine later. Quick question about the gun, is the body and the stock 1 piece or 2 wood pieces and the pvc to connect the 2 like the tutorial showed? And did you change any of the size dementions? Im asking these questions assuming you used the tutorial found here: http://empireprops.freeservers.com/mg34rifle.html

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Thanks alpha, I'm pretty decent at drawing but grew tired of it, now I do most of my artistic work in photoshop.

    Nevu - yep, I used that same tutorial. But I couldn't find the same wood he used. I think he used 3/4" craft board and all I could find was 1/2". So my body is 3 pieces glued together. Then I found that if you use the pvc connector to attach the stock it makes it way too long and you would barely be able to reach the trigger, so I ditched that idea and just bondo'ed the two pieces together. It was fun to make and I still need to add some greeblies to it as it looks kinda bare right now.

    Feel free Alpha! I'm gonna try to have a hood on the cape, so the snow mando with the hood on would make a cool pic

    Looks good! I really like that colour-up on the armour and gun! And will that be a red reflective visor?

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Alright! Got some stuff in the mail today!

    First is the flak vest, made by Darth Carcinus. This thing is awesome!


    Next is a scope for my rifle..


    I'm a little disappointed with the scope as it is a little smaller than I thought..


    Unfortunately I won't be able to work on anything this weekend because me and the girlfriend are heading out to the beach in the morning.

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Hey thanks Jason! Here's something I've been working on for about the past hour, just some more Photoshopping

    I grabbed a pic of Boba's helmet off Google and layed my design down on it. Didn't finish the ears and RF though cuz I'm pretty tired and have to get up early. Enjoy!

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Have you seen my snow mando yet?
    My bucket is almost done, just need to finish the ear caps and put on the visor (reflective blue).
    I got the same vest as you, DC is really good with a sewing machine.
    I just gotta get the snow cammo jump suit.
    Here's a link to my page 4 of my thread, it was a thread of my 2nd trash can armor but turned into my Snow Mando thread
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...t=30874&page=4
    my bucket pics are near the bottom.

    Adonian, your helmet is looking great. Can't wait to see how it looks on the snow camo jumpsuit.

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Buy a set of cheap funnels, and make your own scope. Get some pvc pipe, and funnels to make the change it diameters, and some glue, and go to town. Youll be able to make a giant scope, in virtually any dimension you could want.

    Look up the 'how to make a rocket with found parts' thread for the idea of how to put them together. it should be in teh armour section.

    Re: My snow mando idea

    I hope my jump suit turns out good, I gotta save up for it first, but I plan on using white, then doing dry brushing for the black and gray "sploches".

    I cant wait to see yours come to life too, I'm taking my time on this one to make it look really nice.

    Re: My snow mando idea

    Thanks for the advice stormrider, I may just do that because I think the scope needs to be at least twice as long as the one I have.

    Alright, I added the end piece of the barrel today pretty easily...


    Oh, I cut this piece off the end of a vodka bottle ;D

    This is with the piece just sitting in the end, haven't glued it in yet
