    Oct 7, 2015, 9:55 AM - Custom Mando Armor WIP #1

    Hey everybody i started this thread to show you my custom mando armor progress!
    Maybe like 2 years ago I was watching a special episode of the Clone Wars where Obi-Wan played his death to become Rako Hardeen and prevent Palpatines assassination.
    In that episode he got a cool looking helmet (which is basically a customized McQuarrie concept helmet ) and i got inspired by it and started to make my own custom mando armor.

    I'm working on the helmet since February (if you want to check it out here's the link: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f45/r...met-wip-51862/ )and i started the armor yesterday.

    So here's the first sketch of the costume:
    1779037_778599255497093_8781516627999503174_n-jpg

    And here is the building process of the chest and shoulder pieces:

    Cutted out and shaped:

    Painting:

    And here are the fully finished weathered pieces:

    I've wanted to create blaster hits on the armor and i was like:

    Hm... How should i make a burned effect.... oh of course. With fire (duh)

    12064427_1075700095787006_340711227_n-jpg 12064501_1075700045787011_1628558451_n-jpg 12083956_1075700012453681_1207712125_n-jpg

    And Here is the left shoulder with an ammo pouch thing on it:

    So thats all for now! More pictures will come as i proceed further with the build! And pls DONT FORGET TO CHECK MY HELMET BUILD TOO !!!

    I've cutted the templates from a different kind of PVC then is usually use. ( Its harder to cut harder to fom it to shape )

    Little bit of bondo:

    That looks good. From what I've read, you might want to move your collar up about a 1/4 inch. That will help with spacing. But man, it still looks cool.

    I cant really move it up cuz' the neck of the vest is a bit big so probably i will have to make a new collar piece
    anyway thank you guys for all the feedback it really helps me going on with the build ! (y)

    12312268_1102097756480573_1203011732_n-jpg
    As you can see i used a darker gray so i dont have to paint that much

    i will add the rubber tubes (i dont know how it's called) and the spikes soon
    then i will paint them
