    Wulfe, my custom mando...00.02% done....

    hey all
    i finally got started on my Custom mando, mainly the chestplate. i haven't written a full background story for my custom mando, white-wulf Tiberius or 'Wulfe' for short, but in short hes a corellian-turned-mando, with a split personality problem. meet him in a bar and hes a nice guy, maybe buy you a jawa beer. but the next he'll hunt your butt down for the price on yer skull.

    heres something i did in Paint, to show you the colours/patterns i will do on the chest.

    and heres the rough chestplate so far, made of sintra, needs some sanding and evening out still.

    You're making progress, I'll give you that.
    I love the design you're shootin' for, wish I could've thought of something like that for my armor.

    well after raiding B&Q yesterday, and being bored lastnight, i stayed up untill 4.20am making this....



















    i picked up some bostik 'sewsimple' glue and used that to reinforce it, its a latex based glue so itsa all rubbery and bends easily'.

    woot girth belt!

    What kind of cord did you use? Was that braided leather cord, I can't really tell? I've seen a couple girth belts that are basically a leather belt used for weight lifting which has the cord etc hot glued directly to the leather weight lifting belt. I believe it's based on Jango's girth belt. While I've already bought a mohair girth belt, I may go ahead and try for one similar to jango's...Looks great so far, keep up the great work!

    Thanks for the inspiration Wulfe, I've had problems with the underbelt system I wear with my kit and wanted to replace it with something FAR better, that also looks good under my belt. Your girthbelt has inspired me to make my own, which I started upon tonight.
