    Hey guys, I just tried to post an intro, but I guess it got messed up somehow...I'll make sure to copy this one incase it doesn't go through again.

    Anyways, I'm a big Boba fan, and while watching The Clone Wars series the other day I decided I wanted my own custom Mando armor.
    I paused the show and took some screenshots of scenes that displayed the armor well, and then I freehanded the designs onto some sheet metal I had around the house.
    Long story short the first set I made didn't turn out so great, so I redid it, the second time being more precise and actually measuring stuff.
    Second set turned out a lot better I think.

    Anyways, after doing the second set I realized that I should probably check online since I could probably do a much better job with help.
    I found the templates for Boba's armor, and I plan on using them for the rest of the armor that I didn't already make (back, neck, groin), and perhaps use it to redo the chest pieces if I decide mine aren't good enough (very likely).

    I've got a couple pictures of a shirt that I plan as using as a vest, and a jumpsuit that I plan on having under the "vest", as well as the chest pieces that I already cut out.

    I'm planning on using Boba's armor template, but not doing an actual Boba build, so I'm not worried about things matching up perfectly.

    I plan on posting a lot on here so you guys can see my progress and give me any advice if I need it! This is my first time doing this kinda thing, so it's all very new to me

    Hey all! Just finished my neck piece, I'm posting from my phone, so hopefully the picture shows up.
    I added an old surplus army belt as well, it seems like a good amount of my gear is gonna be military related, which I think will look kinda cool.

    I'd love some feed back about what you guys think, and suggestions for improvement!

    I'll probably post again tomorrow if I get the shoulder bells or groin piece done

    Cool, another Virginian!
    Welcome, and be sure to take a look around in the "Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters" section
    of the forum. Lots of custom builds in there.

    I like the look of that surplus belt with those pouches.
