awesome! hey dude check PMs
awesome! hey dude check PMs
HEY!!! 6 PAGES!!! Congrats ner vod!
Haha thanks mostly just be asking questions :lol
hey that's fine ner vod, that's the point of the forums! lol
going offline for a bit to work on that item discussed via PM... I'll get it posted before I go to bed.
Heres the promised current pictures :D
and i did a 2 second photoshop (its extremely obvious) :lol to see what the visor will look like.... kinda :D
cheek looks better.
ya they sure do :D
And the boring process of sanding tomorrow :( but oh well! It just means im closer to painting :lol
will you be able to see out of that SLIM SLIT of a visor? :lol JK
haha! ya my plan is to leave it as it is! I can look like a disapointed mando! :lol
Levi Mando is not angry! Only disappointed :lol
and ya i will be cutting that out lol
lol hey dude go with the Adonian style visor!
im thinking about it
ill definatly do on my second custom though :D
leave the bucket all melted looking, look like you survived a blast from an X-wing engine ;)
lol that would definatly be orignal! :lol
yeah... original... that's, umm... one way to put it... lol
We were talking about using the bondo glass to make an organic mando...:p
:lol I have to admit i would definatly be interested to see how that would turn out :D
I really like the idea of a more organic looking Mando; it'd be cool to do a lizard based one I think, like model it after a krayt dragon. The helmet could be like Rholan one, pointy in the back, and the armor funky shaped, almost like the crusader armor (on the left), but maybe with some jenisari influence.
I've got a question for all of you who have bondoed a helmet before. Ive been sanding today and the dome just looks like it did before i rebondoed the dents. Its all dented!!! The good news is i havnt struck paper this time. So does that just mean i have to keep sanding?
you can sand a little more, or add a little more bondo to round out the low spots, you dont want to sand back down to paper agian, but you also dont want the dome to look too tall.
i agree this site is amazing and has alot to offer :) thank all of you on here your making my dream come true!!!!!
LoL! It's less blobby, yay!
Ok a quick little update :D
Sanding is coming along find (still doing it though)
And i was just thinking ahead...... Im not sure how to get the earcaps, rangefinder, and keyhole :( theres a possibility that i can get the earcaps from Jason...... but guess who doesnt control the paypal...... ME! so im not sure what to do there
earcaps you can make with the WoF temps (he has a set for them!!! :) ) and RF as well...
The keyslot is a bit tricky...I make mine out of plastic, then cut out the required shape from the helmet, then glue it in...
i know i saw someone use a pvc pipe cut to fit as a keyslot, but for the life of me I cant find it again.
ya know...I remember that...let me see what i can dig up...
LATER THAT DAY:
AH HA!!! I WIN!!! :D:D:D
Here is the link to the PVC keyslot:
Shoulda know it was digi's tutorial...that guy is brilliant...
haha thanks guys!
just going to say that anything that i have to buy will be on hold for a little while.... bought a leather jacket....... ya that set me back :lol
:lol good one A'den.
Man i feel so bad.... Im still sanding and all of you are cruising through your scratch builds :(
relax vod, take your time with it. i get to wear mine to school on oct 30th lol i can hear the announcement now, There is a Mandalorian on campus run and hide while you still have a chance. :D
haha! Go in there all terminator style! Man you have to bring a camera! it would be hilarious :lol
For christmas all of my relatives all meet in the town my parents grew up in (my favorite place in the world) But I have a cousin who is also making a custom,(hes the one who introduced me to TDH but he ended up using MandoMercs instead) But we're both going to try and finish for the end of december :D
Gonna troop around town! Its going to be a riot and my other cousins going to be bringing a camera so all of you can see what happens :lol
can't wait to see those pics vod
we're considering walking into the store with our blasters (its a small town) and just see the reaction.... but then theres always the possibility that they think that we're robbing the place :lol
Hey Levi! Sweet progress ner'vod. yea not to worry im stuck in the same spot as you, im not cruising if I am its at a awfully slow speed.. lol. Dont worry sanding took me a whole month to get through! And I still found a few spots when I tried to paint it!!
the whole problem with the slowness of this project is that in about a month snow will seriously blanket everywhere! And they're predicting the coldest winter in a long time!
same goes for florida minus the snow naturally. lol
snows pretty sweet for the first week, but after that YOU HATE IT!!
I lived in snow for about 7 years then moved to Florida. Snow was awesome :D But Florida humidity stinks!!! Lol I was painting today and it dried in like 5 minutes...
@Jason, I thought last year was record cold?
@Levi dude I posted a question in my form see if u can answer it
sure :lol and vod, when winter comes most canadians try to escape to Florida! sadly i have never left Canada :( but soon we're probably going to England, Scotland, Ireland for travelclub :D
By the way Nevu, were did you use to live?
Northwest up in Washington.
I think you should move to Saskatchewan in Canada :D...... Just saying :lol dont have many Star Wars lovin friends here :(
correction... I dont have any :cry
:lol poor lev'ika
Hey man you're all movin' fast than me.
or you could come to canada and experience a real winter :lol just kidding vod :D
LoL ^^^ I couldn't agree more. (Keep it up Alpha!)
@jason, lol r u serious? I never heard about that... Lol I have a fireplace too but we only use it on reallly cold nights. Yes cold nights in florida, its possible but only for the people who r used to the heat. lol. I don't use the fireplace often though the rest of my family does. I lived in the cold long enough that i've still got the resistance to it in my blood. I frequently where basketball shorts and a t-shirt on cold days xD
yeah up in the panhandle area especially, last year we had to use our fireplace a few times... and we're from the mountains so we're used to cold weather. We're headed out to Oklahoma in November, hopefully we get there okay (since that is the middle of winter!) lol
Hey! If you want resistance to cold AND wet, this shorts wearing Brit beats you all hands down! :)
haha if i can find a pic of our last winter ill post it :D
oh man that sucks! How you doin vod?
haha did she say you were? If so how did she explain going out with you if you are so ugly Hang in the man
haha mix between hutt and human... Maybe :lol just a guess throw in a bit of wookie
better shave that back hair vod :p
haha i can only imagine :lol
they should so turn the force unleashed into a movie!
subject changes?..... But yea, that'd be cool.
the guy is tiny. i think he might be an umpa lumpa.
haha definate subject change :lol There is a book
gotta change your sig form Jawas to Ewoks
Cool change vod, now lets get huntin those fuzzy little freaks :)
Garden Gnomes, now thats a GREAT IDEA, maybe they'll scare away those darn gophers that keep eatin my plants.
anyone want a doll? :lol
we could sell them on fleabay, fleas included :lol
This has nothing to do with ewoks.. not even a jawa! :lol just wondering if anyone has ever had this feeling. You know when you finish a great book, or great video game (haha i know im a nerd!) One of those things were you really get emotionally conntected to the characters. Once you finish its like you lost a piece of yourself. Part of you just drifted away and you wont get it back unless they make more of the series
Im probably just yammering on! :lol Just feeling like that right now
haha well that stopped that conversation :lol
Ok plan for tomorrow is sanding sanding and more sanding... wish me luck! :lol
I know what you mean, I just started Eragon again, actually finished Eragon, and am now starting Eldest.
I did that awhile ago actually! Definatly one of the greatest books ive read! Im waiting for the final book :D Im wondering if any of you have played kingdom hearts? If you've beaten those games you should know the feeling!
i know this has nothing to do with star wars but i just have to show it! Here are the intros to 3 of them. Even if they seem stupid just keep watching all of them. After after you've seen them im sure you will want to get them! :D And best of all THEY'VE PUT ALL THE DISNEY CHARACTERS IN!! Like mickey donald goofy. You go to different worlds and.... well ill leave that up for you to find out :D
heres the first one
heres the second
and the third one that hasnt come out yet
I have and have played Kingdom Harts 1, but never got past Alice in wonderland (I suck), but I really like those games, and will one day finish it, and get the rest.
I really like the fact that they made a game with Disney characters that doesn't suck ;)
i'm going into the woods today to try and get some garden gnomes lol :D
take your camera so we can get in on the action.
haha! and ya the disney characters just amp up the game so much! and i think number 2 is so much better! It gets more into Sora, Rikus, and Kiris story
oh dear manda! would you dikutla chakaare get back on topic here? lol JK JK, don't get angry... never seen such a long rant tho! Must be a great game... doesn't sound like my type of game tho... never been a fan of the Kingdom Hearts stuff. How's the 'gam comin' along Lev'ika?
I guess I gotta do the fleabay thing and get KH2.
Oh yea, how's the bucket?
ZZZZzzzz warmin' up the whip ;)
haha up till now i was fencing! :(
fencing with a saber or foil or fencing with fence posts?
fence posts :( and sorting cattle
could anyone tell me the price of Spot filler?
6 or 7 dollars
thats good :D
Ill have to go pick up some
Im going to finish up sanding today and try to get some spot filler asap
Sounds like your moving along man keep it up!
Thanks! I will :D
