    Apr 30, 2008, 12:42 PM - Shado's Build - Female Mando Build - pic heavy #1

    Figured i dont want to cloud my actual thread with posts on the GF's armor build.

    so ill move the topic in here, since those of you who need female armor advice can ask in here.

    so heres pics, from start to finish. If you need to elaborate on any pic, comment here, and i'll see if I can clear up what was going on.













    upper armor takes shape










    weathering begins













    Helmet

    I took my yellow rubies helmet and replinted it for Shado.








    Vest









    Adding balistic padding










    Together for the fist time








    Wheres my range finder?





    Adding Thighs and cod peice. wait, is it still a cod peice on a girl?

























    ...till tonight....we try it all on.

    well we decided that we didint like the thigh plates, so i built a more traditional set. here a comparason, and the set. ran out of white paint, or they'd be finished by now.

    Armor is coming out nice! Using metal puts a realism to it.
    BTW Jodo you resemble the late Heath Ledger(a great talent lost) in that last pic.


    Can't wait to see this project completed.
