Greetings to all,
I have been lurking for a few weeks now, decided it was time to introduce myself. A little about me; I am 41, was in the Army for almost 19 years, a student (thank you Army), and single. I got interested in costuming during the Albuquerque Comic Con. I did some searching on the internet and found this site and the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club. On Saturday I spoke to members of the Black Fire Clan, from the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club, and my interest grew even stronger.
I have looked all over the forums and have a good idea where I want to go with my armor and design. Being a starving student, I plan on scratch building my first kit. The tutorials I found have really helped to give me inspiration, but any suggestions on the best way to go about starting would be greatly appreciated.
