    I started some custom mandalorian armor a while back, but since it was foam, it wasn't approved for the mercs. This time I'm using sintra. Man, I don't know how I never used that stuff before, 'cus it is great! Anyway the armor is almost done, the helmet needs a little work, and I have yet to make the belts. I also need to cast my blaster. But here's what I have so far...

    My backplate is done too. No pics yet but it turned out surprisingly well. Hopefully I'll be able to finish the bracers and the knee pads this week so I can start on the belts and blaster, then I should be pretty close to being done.

    Looks pretty good. Your helmet does look like it is winking though. Even out the visor area.

    Yeah... I was debating whether or not I wanted to keep it like that. I recently repainted that helmet. And before, it was pretty beat up looking, so I thought the bent in visor made sense and was kinda cool. But now I'm not so sure.

    I would say fix it. There isn't much of a way to make that look intentional.

    Successfully molded and did a first pull of my blaster. Didn't turn out great, not terrible, but not great. Gonna do another one or four. :p

    My knee plates are done! And I've got one gauntlet done. I also had some Russian Mosin Nagant ammo pouches for my belt. Now all I have left is the left gauntlet, girth belt, and holsters. Almost there!

    Thanks man! Hopefully I'll be posting some more pics tonight!

    So I used Smooth-Cast 65D to cast the gun. Very easy to work with, two part resin. Can be messy though! I've had a couple mishaps already.

    I love when people make it their own! Great stuff... I got a question as a novice. What exactly is "sintra"?
