    Oct 31, 2012, 6:03 AM - old project, new twist: a heavy mando #1

    hi yall. started meddling with my old beskar that i never finished :P new ideas and designs. feels good to be working on it again

    im starting a new post because the old one is too big and it jut feels right:P the old can be viewed here http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f34/m...y-mando-30757/





    ok so i ordered a belt with puches and a boba fett armor plate package from ebay. Cut the cod piece as you can see in teh pics. the white new lower circular form on the chest plate is actually the collar piece, and the lower abdominal (just above the belt) is the butt piece. attached the diamond on the right shoulder piece, and the middle shoulder pieces you can see is from the original Fett chest pieces. using the original back plate and abdominal plate. planning for original knee pads


    still waiting for a black visor.

    If you have tried to use the WOF templates and not been able to do it right let me give you a tip. When I made the dome for my helmet (all steel) I had a lot of trouble getting everything to fit right and had to use extensive amounts of bondo to get it to look good. Cut out all of the pieces of the templates and attach them together at the pointed ends. Also there are cross section forms included with the WOF templates these help get the shape right. The real trick is to make sure that the material you are working with is cut out accurately. Also if your material is really thick you will have to cut off a little extra material, about the same amount as your material is thick. I hope this helps a little. If you have any questions I will try to explain further.
