    WIP: My Mandalorian armor

    I am currently working on my custom Mandalorian armor. So far I am working on the helmet and starting on some gauntlets. Here is the cold cast that came in



    This is the helmet after I cut some of the flash off











    RF Stock



    I also modified a Hasbro Boba helmet as a test subject to work on as practice, here is the Hasbro and the cold cast side by side



    Got a long way to go, should be fun I'm currently in the process of sanding them down.

    When working on that Asok helmet it would be a good idea to look up some Saint_nasty threads and follow the tutorial.

    I have finished 2 of them. It is easy to do if you know the process but the process is not instinct.

    Cool, Asok did refer to Saint_nasty, I'll follow up when the time comes. Thanks

    Applied bondo, glazing putty to my test subject, I also sanded it down with 250 and 600 grit sandpaper







    I also put on a coat of primer

    I;m working on the cold cast and I don't know how to approach this, and I'm looking for advice. What would be the best way to attach the earpiece and RF stock? Here are some reference pictures
