    Thanks guys! and I was still thinking it looked like a trash-can in disguise. Think it's ok as-is?

    John, Biomechanoid, I hate to say it, but I am a no-go for C-3. I'm going to Germany around that same time, and my travel funds are pretty much shot. Will this be the last of the Star Wars Celebrations?

    I AM planning on catching a ride to the San Diego Comicon in July; best I can do. Any chance you all will be there too?

    Cheers!

    Chest, leg armor. I was planning on usin the logo pictured above on the left shoulder bell.... oops. now that I look at the photo, the bells were switched. oh well. use your imagination.

    I was thinking of using the emblem pictured below on the right breastplate. whats the best way to handle this? stencil cut out of blue tape? or will vinyl decals work on a convex surface? what have the rest of you done on yours?

    Cheers.

    For my emblems, I bought some airbrush stencil film and cut out the shapes from that. Worked nicely. Painters tape may also work.

    Good luck, costume is lookin awesome.

    Looks awesome...I gotta admit you definately have a very refreshing and original idea. By far, you have got to have one of the most stunning homemade jet packs that I've seen to date. You really know how to run away with a concept. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to see this baby when you are through.

    thanks for all of the compliments! they've warmed my black little heart.

    Recent developments on this project include:

    An imperial scout blaster w/holster. This will be my Mando's sidearm. The blaster, if made off of the Kenner, is quite easy to modify. however, making the holster gave me a new-found respect for the scout troopers as it is VERY difficult to construct and have it look right. I had to glue about three pieces of sintra at once, then bondo; like using concrete on a house of cards. here's a reference photo of what I'm talking about:


    I'll post pics of how all that went in a day or so.

    The more recent issue is that of the back-plate and collar. This is definately the hardest part so far. I've shaped and re-shaped my back-plate about 8 times and I've concluded that either the pattern was off or that it was just too big. I'll try trimming it and shaping it some more before I give in and cut out a new one; I'd hate to waste all that sintra. ANY pointers on this part are GREATLY appriciated.

    Thanks again, everyone. I'll post new pics sometime tomorrow.

    Cheers!

    SLAVEFIVE - "John, I am coming! Quick, give me your credit card so I can close out the room first!"


    THE END
    Ha ha, I just now read that. You crack me up John.

    That's too bad you can't make it to C3 Christov. I'm gonna try to make it to comic con this year too, so maybe I'll see you there. The suit's really startin to look good.

    Hey, looks really awesome so far! (Especially the jet pack. Damn. )

    Let me know how the bloody handprint works out if you decide to do it. My Mando has blood splattering on her helm, but I was thinking of using acrylics. They wipe off easily enough with a paper towel when still wet.

    Also, if you still wanted to see it, here's a screen of a Dark Trooper from Battlefront. I apologize for the angle. It's the only shot I had that didn't require me to get back on the game and take another, heh..

    Re: *UPDATE #5- Mandalorian Imperial Mercenary. ARMOR PROGRESS

    Hey folks. The project is back in the works. I should have it done in time for the Comic Con. I do have one slight problem though, the tailor I had making the neckseal and flakvest has dropped off the face of the earth. Does anyone know who can crank out a set in dark gray or black at short notice?

    Keep us posted on your progress man! That suit is gonna be cool! As far as someone who makes awesome soft parts pretty darn fast, I'd check with TK409. Awesome neckseal he makes! Vest too!
