    a new addition.. in the works

    I came up with these sketches..
    my idea for my custom mando JP



    and I've decided to re-work the color scheme a bit.. and I'm adding more design to the armor.. especially the helmet...






    what to you think?

    thanks

    yeah, at first I wasn't planning on a JP at all.. but I figured I'd take a shot at creating one and see how it goes.

    I plan on stenciling/painting the design on my helmet tomorrow.
    Going with a bone white. I will also age/burn/slash the soft components.. age the paint job and what not.

    I'm going to wear it this coming weekend.
    Of course I won't have the JP done by then.. but the progression into my mando-metamorphasis will have begun.

    huzzah!



    ---and yes.. progress pics will soon follow.---

    The JP looks very retro sci-fi. Very retro-chic!

    When I see this pic it kind of reminds me of the "Original BSG Cylon"!

    Your mods are looking good so far!

    You should add the Distinctive red light, jk. Your upgrade on the helmet came out to look excellent. I cant wait to see how your jet pack comes together.

    Re: a new addition.. in the works

    Cool bucket. I like the vents actually. Was that a Rubies helmet which had the half visor and you covered it with something? Or did you specifically plan it that way? If so I couldn't imagine it. I change my mind so often about the design (or lack thereof) that it's not practical for me to try and stick to the same regimen...Anyway, looks great. Do you have any pics of your armor etc yet? I'd like to check them out when and/or if you have some available...

    nope, no armor upgrades as of yet.

    yep, rubies jango.. I didn't like that little line in my visor.. and I wanted to do something different..

    thank you for the compliments!

    When are you starting the jet pack. I love the way it looks. Has that sort of mean look. Just what a bounty hunter needs.
