    M-DSB "Mercenary" helmet.



    Custom vacformed armor by Electric_Jay, not weathered in these pics, will take updated photos soon.

    Ammo belt by Seeker. It's awesome!

    I like it

    need more pics

    That helmet would look alot better and we could tell more about it if it had a visor in it.



    and Jodo is cool, just not AS good

    It should. Same shade of orange was used. My goal with this kit is to make it custom, but close, almost a generic.

    idk...i kinda like jodo...i like his armor more then fetts but i think if i had to chose between them on the personality i'd probobly end up picking neither and same for the choise between them based on armors...they just dont leave the mercenary or bounty hunter impresion on me they just leave the amatuer who lacks any and all forms of discipline impression

    Hope the armor gets the same amount of weathering as the lid, which looks great even without the visor installed...very nice start...If you want I have some prepro Boba gloves from Galactic Bounty Hunter Id like to sell weathered up already if you're interested hit me up...I think theyd work pretty well with the direction I think you're going

    Yeah, you really can't see it due to junk phone camera. Yes, all of it now weathered up nicely down to the boots. All I've got left in that department is the softparts. Helmet now has a visor and earcaps with rangefinder. Will be working on the gauntlets tonight which other than the paintwork on the knees is the last thing I have to complete before it's wearable (though not finished).

    Worn at Wizard World Austin even though it's not quite done yet.



    I'm not really 100% pleased with the vest, and I was lacking my knees and spats. Those will be corrected and half sleeves, shin pockets with tools, holster, and jet pack to be added.

    Bro I LOVE the helmet weathering....the vest is throwing it off a bit, one thing Id like to say thuogh is the armor weathering looks unrealistic...by that I mean it doesnt look natural it looks applied basically. The helmets weathering looks like its been worn but the armor looks like someone painted it like that...think if you look at bobas armors wear theres only a few spots where the paints been worn off and theyre dents mostly in those areas or corners...not bashing you just trying to lend some insight to make it that much better...but I really like the direction this is going

    I agree, and that was taken on Friday, I actually did some more weathering on the armor and soft parts Saturday morning out in front of our hotel. I'll be tweaking it as I go until I'm happy with it.
