    My WIP pictures... Pic heavy!

    Hopefully ill have a helmet to show WIP pics of soon B^) and im working on a deal for set of armor so keep your fingers crossed for me B^) ha ha Any ways i just got in my first set of guns in the mail (have 2 more on their way) and i thought i would share pics of them along with one i picked up a couple of weeks ago at target on their clearance isle.

    the first set of pics are a Lazer Tag gun i got off evil bay for a really good price (got 4 for the price one usually costs) its a bit bigger than i thought it was gunna be. the second couple of pics are a Nerf gun that works with the Wii remote. it was on clearance for 3 bucks so i couldn't pass it up. I just got finished sanding off the logos of the Nerf gun, next well be the lazer tag guns B^)

    the last set of pics are the boots i plan on using if i can make covers for the logos on the back heal.



    that light sensor is gunna be a pain to work around... any suggestions on what i can do with it?? keep it? cover it? take it out and fill it in some how??
    the gun comes apart to be more of a pistol ... i think i like it better together B^P
    in this pic it shows this thing that pops out when you hit the switch at the bottom of the pic... no batteries so i dont know what it duz yet B^P

    not bad for 3 bucks just needs some filling in and adding a bit to the back and it should be a good hold out blaster.




    ill post more pics of the guns once i get more work completed on them. B^)

    for the boots... i got them here http://www.vixensandangels.com/Item.cfm?Type=21&v=1 unfortunately they no longer have that style but New Rocks have many styles that work
    as for the nerf gun... im not sure what to do with it.. i have it all sanded, and i know i need to add something to the back part to fill in where the pull back was. but other than that i have no clue. any suggestions would be awesome!! B^)

    O M G !!! O M G!!! O M G!!!!!!

    i had a slip from the post office on my door yesterday so i went by there to pick up the package... but the postman hadn't gotten back yet and wouldn't be back till after they closed...soooo i went by there today expecting one of my maybe guns that i had won off ebay... well i was right BUT i was also SUPER surprised to see two more boxes....

    this was in the first box i opened...


    I didn't even know he had shipped it yet!!

    This was in the second box i opened...

    i knew this had been shipped but according to tracking it was still in California

    and last is something i want to use as a gun/anti aircraft type o thing...if i can figure out how to build a weapons rack backpack. (wanting to go a heavy weapons mercenary type of mando)

    what do you think?? its missing its scope though but i got it for 4 bucks off ebay so im ok with that plus that's what the range finder is for !

    now to go read directions on the fiberglass kit!!!!!

    /edit he he didn't know i couldn't do O M G together

    Oh My Gosh!! Dude, we are SOOOO like minded!!!

    You might try a chaingun on your arm, I got one and made it out of, a carboard tube and some dowels.

    If you need some armor, I can make you some cheap. P.M. me if your other deal falls through.

    I can also make you a chain gun too.

    Jango, technically it is actually correct, light itself has negligable mass, so there was "nothing", but you could see it is just a slightly comical way of putting it.

    a chaingun would be cool but like i said above im getting old and once my other guns get in ill be quite loaded down but it is a good idea for his backstory

    as for the armor... im sending payment for my armor on friday. so once that comes in all ill need is my right gaunt, soft parts (have a friend that might be able to help me out with that) leather bits, and knee armor (thinking of going with boba maker for those kuz they look darn good), and i may also see about getting one of boba makers holllow RF (have an idea), and also need to pm the guy with the holllow aluminum RF stalk. o and electronics... dang now that i listed what i still need to get it seams like a lot ha ha

    yea i PMed him a couple of weeks ago...unfortunately he lives in Norway and shipping would break me and that's without tracking believe me i wanted them BAD!!

    eep just went back and looked at bobamakers knee armor and saw the price... for some reason i was thinking they were cheaper after shipping. BUT i do still want one of their hollow RFs

    Re: My WIP pictures... Pic heavy!

    here is the basic color scheme for the helmet, and the colors i want to use for the armor... i want to add something to the helmet and possibly to the armor but im not sure what i should do... i really liked Shado's 3 lines on her helmet so i want something like that.. not to big or bold just a lil sumpin to give it that extra kick! I don't plan on adding kill marks to the helmet so i really want to add something.

    i got it from tk337 in the cargo hold. it was one she was selling B^) now i just need to get a right gaunt

    also i put a link under the pic so you can see a bigger pic of the helmet colors though for sum reason it is still a lil bit small B^(

    but the upper cheek part isn't black its actually the gray with a gradient getting darker as it gets closer to the outer edge, just like the red part of the cheeks, it goes from a nice dark red and gets darker as it goes up. i hope it turns out well B^)

    welp i got my last set of pistols in the mail today B^) so glad to finally get them. they were actually the first ones i payed for but it took for ever for them to be shipped and arrive B^(

    i haven't taken pics of them yet but i will tomorrow! to pooped today, way to hot out there and had to run grandmother around B^P that can wipe the energy right out of ya!! i also got the templates for a jango jetpack off Mano Merks and as soon as i find a printer to print them out i wanna try and make a scratch built jetpack. i also have an idea for a hand held protocol droid (like the one Lowbacca uses in the Young Jedi Knights books) but ill take pics and see what yall think

    also i sent payment for my armor and i hope it comes soon!! once it arrives ill take pics, and if its as good as the finished pics look ill let you all know where i got it from. its fiber glass armor and it looks like its good quality. i just hope it is

    Edit: forgot to mention ive been working on my bigger guns this past week, got the red dome censor thingy cut off two of them and took out a few inside bits to keep it form vibrating and making a bunch of noise. now it only lights up like its sposta (power bars and ammo indicator along with what i guess is a venting action in the handle) ill post pics as soon as i get more headway on them B^)

    ok well i did a lil work today on my nerf gun... got it primered.. gotta say its lookin good. also painted my M-P-D mobile pocket droid used for translating and slicing also took pics of them and my new guns. i now have 6 guns one small holdout type, two pistols, two carbines, and a bazooka type i have a rifle on its way and then im DUN with guns!!!!

    just need to do sum filling on the nerf gun and it will be ready for paint, though i don't plan on doing much other than painting it black with a few dark red highlights. the carbines are ready to start filling as well then i can primer them up and paint them as well... i hope to work on that this weekend. the pistols... heck don't have to do a thing to them so they are ready the MPD just needs a few dark red highlights added and a 9V battery and it will be ready.

    o here are the pics

    MPD he he its the lazer tag sensor!

    new pistol

    Re: My WIP pictures... Pic heavy!

    If you're going to use the laser tag stuff, could I suggest that you do something to make it look a bit different to painted laser tag stuff. I think I read somewhere that people trooping are getting kids recognising some of the stuff they are wearing because they have the same thing at home and it's not quite starwars to have kids name the items that make up your outfit.

    Feel free to ignore my advice, it's your suit after all, but I hope you can see that, despite any budget, if you want to do it, it's best to make it your outfit, not an outfit of parts you found.

    he he actually its very starwarsy for kids to name the items of star wars outfits i remember when i was little i knew what they used for Hans gun freaked my mom out too. but i know what you are saying and i was planning on doing more to the star sensor but the gun... not so much, it already has a scope and it looks sleek so if i add anything to it it will look odd. i am thinking of painting the bottom barel at the end the same as the star sensor (a hammered metal) but not quite sure yet. also that older lazer tag stuff is almost 30 years old i don't think many "kids" would have them much less know what they are as for the newer lazer tag stuff im changing them quite a bit, and to be honest i don't think they were made for kids these things are huge and quite heavy, i was actually surprised when i opened them up.

    if you have any suggestions though on what i could add to anything please let me know!! any and all help is greatly appreciated

    Well a strip over the centre of the sensor to cover the triangular marks, some knicks and knacks from other pieces, like radios, calculators and other toys. It depends which era your mando will be from, if it's the Empire era then everything is functional and a bit clunky as compared to the graceful look of the old republic era.

    Perhaps you could put a hand grip and hold, like the pistol grip on one side, if it's a translator perhaps it was designed to be held. You could even ad wires and an arial so it can pick up wireless frequencies. Things like that, think about how it works and what it would viably need to work and see if you can find a neat way to fit it into the overal design.

    That's the fun thing about creating anything

    ha ha at first i thought you were talking about the gun and was like...What sensor he he then i realized you wer talking about the translator

    B^) the grip thing sounds cool but its more like Lowbaca's where is just clips on the belt (or later on in the books he got repulseor jets and was able to fly around on his own) the ida was its a droid much like C3PO and can talk and hold a convo if it so pleases

    i was thinking about an antina of some sort on the side or back and like i said i plan on adding more paint to it to help make it look a bit different. what i would like to do is get sum retractable wires to put into it for the sliceing part but im not sure what kind of ends to put on them or if it woud even fit inside B^)
