    Oct 4, 2015, 7:56 PM - Custom Mando #1

    Ok, I know I haven't been the best at actually keeping threads going lately, but I PROMISE this one will.
    I've been working on planning my custom Mando for over a year now and I'm finally satisfied with it.

    I've lately been reading the Republic Commando books y Karen Traviss (been meaning to for ages), which inspired me to add an RC shoulder plate, backpack, and two DC-15s Sidearms to the suit. I'm starting the armour tomorrow.

    Got an early start and cut out all the sintra armour pieces (except for the right shoulder, still working on the template) Taking a break for lunch and to let the stupid cutting cramp go away then I'll shape them. All of these pieces (except maybe the backplate) will be duplicated in steel and riveted to the sintra pieces. I can only afford very thin steel but the upside is I can shape it without hammering. I already had the sintra so by layering them the steel will hold shape and the plates will have some thickness to them. I used this method on a chestplate for airsoft (some people don't get that you don't need 480fps on full auto in a close quarters game) a while back and it worked great.

    Alright MASSIVE pic update.
    Couldn't upload yesterday because I lost my USB cable, but it has been liberated from behind the couch!

    Got all but 3 of the steel plates cut out and a lot of them attached. I worked on my first blaster pistol, holster, and got the straps on one of the thigh plates. I'm working on the boots and flak vest pattern tomorrow and then I'm away for a bit, but I'll be back at it in no time!

    Got the first leg done. I'm still fixing stuff up but it's wearable and comfortable. I can even sprint and kneel in it.

    So I've been working about 5 hours a day on this and I'm slowing down for a while to work on a movie. I'll still chip away and try to post every couple days.

    Thanks guys, I'm gonna do some more work on it tomorrow.
    I got boxing three nights a week, just started tae kwon do two days a week, nee to find time to work out, and then I've still got a job (if you value free time don't plan to be a stuntman), but none of it will stop me from finishing my beskar'gam!

    Oya!

    This is amazing work! Just getting into this because my son wanted to be Boba Fett for Halloween. I had NO idea what I was getting into when I agreed. I'm glad I did, now I will always have a project to work on!

    Worked on my belt, kama, left thigh pouch,knees, and started painting the blaster. Don't worry, the blaster will still go through a lot of weathering and have greeblies attached.
    I also started the details on the gauntlets. The one pictured is the right gauntlet, the left one will have a chrono, compass, and datapad screen.
