    I'm planning it on my laptop here in spain, will start off with a glossary first, but we really need to ensure it's organised and hopefully it will be stickied when we are done.

    Watch this space, well, not this one, another thread when I start it.

    Yup, you look like a professional at this. Mine both had major globs of bondo, yours is smooth.

    to me the dome is a little too round, you may need to extend it a little.

    /\ Agree with A'den, if it fits, leave it be, remember your doing custom Mando here, not a 1:1 Fett.

    I no see pictures... And dont get frusterated! Stay patient; these take time and lots of bondoglass. But you will like it WAY more than if you buy a premade.
