Su'cuy'gar vode! This is the WIP of (as the title implies) my Mando Protector kit! The kit is heavily influences by the Pre-Production Boba kits and I hope it will Look Like I just Walked out of the 'verse .
So far Ive got The chest, back, shoulders and vest done. The armour is all made out of .8mm steel (about 20 gauge i think) and is my first time metal working.
The plates are held onto the vest magnetically via 1cm diameter/.3cm thick neodymium magnets. The chest plates are held on with 6 each, the ab with 8, the gorget with 5, the shoulders with 3 each, and the back plate is yet to be attached.
The magnets are strong and easy to adjust so i like them.
The chest, ab, and shoulders have been weathered with the layered technique. I think I over did them a bit but i think they look good.
Should i repaint the mythosaur and protecter emblem? They dripped when i painted them.
The rest will be painted tomorrow. i am still going to do some topical weathering like black/brown wash and little scratches but that comes later.
Any comments/suggestions about spacing/placement of the plates?
Im working on the knees now (also metal) and i plan to vacuum form the helmet and gauntlets.
Well thats it for now but Im planning on finishing before summer ends so Ill be working quickly (i hope). Any comments or critiques are welcome. ;D
