    WIP: My Custom Mando

    here's a few of my progress shots on my custom mando.
    ON the mod'd nerf, I left some of the orange due to some safety concerns expressed by local law enforcement.

    The helmet is a vacformed kit from the RPF. it came in 3 pieces, plus resin ears and range finder. no visor or stalk though. I got the visor from ebay, it's actually a red visor, but I had to add tint to make it dark enough to hide my face.

    The armor is made from a chlorine bucket.

    your ab plate should be a bit bigger. about a pinky's width between the plates in perfect sizing.

    all the torso armor is from WOF template, size large.

    in that pic, the pieces are laid out, and yes the ab plate is leaning due to it's shape.


    Thanks for the compliments.

    I like you've mixed up classic rednblack with a bit of grey.

    Thanks guys.

    I have to redo the gauntlets, they are still to shinguard looking. No biggie, i've got some new ones ordered. I'm also going to weather the vest and add either a girth belt or sash to fill the gap between vest and cod.

    I like the grey as well. It gives some visual depth to the whole thing, as things tend to get lost on plain black. I'm going to wash the flight suit like 14 times, and try and get it to fade a bit.
