    Aug 30, 2009, 3:07 AM - New Jax City -multiple mando builds & FEMALE plates galore #1

    Worked on 9 sets today. steel or aluminum. Pics to come soon. all i got was this one off my cell.




    If you cant tell cause my cell stinks. that armor is PINK and WHITE

    all in all excellent day. had about 12 people working on armor, and about 9 sets of armor actually built. most at about 50% and two at 75% stage.

    very good day. I'm glad that you all let me share my building knowledge with you. Its always a blast!!! My hands are sore from pounding lots of armor. and a few of you have really cool designs no one has done before!

    cant wait to see final build.

    ***note***

    that is not her vest. its my hydra vest just to check plate positions. they are off in this picture. they DO line up correctly. trust me.

    no lenses. helmets are just starting to get paint. lenses are the last step.

    some updates...

    made new chest plates for pink mando, painted chest plates for male flat black mando, started shins for pink mando

    not too happy yet with the outcome. what do you think?















    still have to clean up the edges and fill in some seams, either by welding or jb-weld

    update, more pics later. paint drys in about 5 minutes or less.

    this will be for Shado's new kit. started around 430 this afternoon. its 530 now...

    this is my 4th attempt at female plates out of metal. getting better i think, but not near where i want to be yet.





    this is a coat of primer and a coat of red primer than a coat of this dark tan color. will add white, prolly blue (501st dark), green and another coat of the dark tan than the 3 coats of the final top coat which will be regular Tan.

    this armor will be replacing her leather plates which i don't like so she can have a kit that will match my desert mando with leather plates that you've all seen by now.

    thanks for the compliments!




    more weathering between messages.

    whats more impressive, is the 12yo girl who's the daughter of a buddy mando who, after me showing her how to do it, she sewed her own vest and finish pounding out her armor and painted and weathered it all on her own. she was even sewing other mando vests at the mando party in addition to myself.

    she rocks! (shes the black and green mando a few posts up)

    it was very late so forgot to have the fligthsuit on in these pics.





    also broke the last needle i had tonight. so had to stop sewing. vest will be completed this week sometime.

    I still have some velcro to fix as well as add padding and more darts in various areas to make it fit better.

    finished sewing the vest for the female sando-mando as someone called it today. these pics were taken BEFORE i did velcro mods as well as several more darts.... more pics tomorrow once Shado wakes up.

    also started painting the helmet, but no pics yet...not worth pics at this point.

    did a first test fit with the flight suit and vest and plates....

    what do you think?









    check out the work being done on this helmet for the 12yo girls mando armor, she now doing it all on her own.
