Well the silicone didn't arrive before the weekend to begin the mold. This turned out to be a good thing because I'm using this time to reshape the dome to be more accurate after studying ref pics more.
As for the rest of the armor, I have the basic shapes made for the upper body pieces and will post pics once they're a little more dialed in.
Thanks for the interest
Cruzer, will those armor pieces your developing be scalable or one standard size?
I figured since Bridget needs a new costume I could make her's Bo and Ainsley one of the grunts..

I'll be padding the waist of the mannequin to make it a more realistic 29"-30". Initially I had no desire in making the jet pack. However, my sister has since decided to make the costume. So I've already begun construction on a Bo jet pack that will measure approximately 13.5" wide when scaled to my helmet. Everything I make will have to be made of fiberglass, unless I can get my hands on a vacform machine. Hope that helps.
Cruzer. I will have all measurement for you tomorrow. Finally was able to get my model.
Here's how Bo-Katan should look like in a real person.
Wow. Great mock up!
I was thinking if you went bigger then than that, it would start looking like leg armor. Very sloppy looking. I will let Cruzer decide.
The Deathwatch toy blasters are tiny. The grip is about as long as the first 3 fingers on my hand. Woodchuck makes a nice pistol, I've made some, and Eternal Armory over on the BHG board does 'em too. I don't know that we've ever all compared sizes, but from eyeballing it they look generally the same size.
Also: This thread is awesome. I love how much attention Bo and the Owls are getting!!
I had made a Deathwatch blaster back when they first appeared. However, I realized I had missed the taper of the gun's body after more ref pics were released. So I plan to go back and rework my blaster to be more accurate. Right now a Feather Lite cast weighs 9.7oz, so I'm hoping it will be between 7-8oz after the gun is slimmed down. I'd be more than happy to purchase a toy blaster to do a size/weight comparison with my blaster.
My guns are also cast in featherlite, so they probably weigh about the same as Cruzer's.
