    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    Well after a bit of tinkering with photoshop i was finally able to make the pictures able to be uploaded.

    Heres the finished sketch of my mando (its only up to the waist because its mainly to show what extra emblems and stuff there will be) There might be more added on when i actually make my armor and bucket.

    Ahem...consider this thread to be under the watchful eye of myself; and I'm sure my most astute colleague, Adonian, will assist me in making sure that you do NOT slack off.

    Consider yourself warned.

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    u might think about going to target/walmart and grabbing a few cheap plastic trashcans too... Adonian, Ordeyn and Myself are all building out of trashcans and they usually turn out well if u're willing to stick it out through the heating, and shaping, and cooling... and possibly repeat. I would NOT try to make the gaunts or bu'cuy out of trashcan tho... the plastic's a lil bit too tough to do it easily.

    I can get Adonian and his laserwhip. works FAR better than a kick.

    And, as Kal'ika said, trashcans are a great way to go. Also, storage bins works really well. ONE END did his gear out of them and it turned out REALLY nice.

    I've been searchin threads that I havent seen, and lo and behold my name pops up again .
    And did someone mention a laserwhip?

    Lemme just warm it up a bit... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzz HHHMMmmmmmmmmmm.

    Yup, nice and warm

    Anyway... yeah, the easy way to start is to get trash cans from wal*mart and trace your pattern with a sharpie, then dremmel them out, but be careful, molten plastic is gonna fly... also go slowly or you may damage your plates.
