Gday everyone, I'm currently trying to build a kit on the mando mercs site, I'm trying for a mando protector
also trying to work out how to post, tried creating album but no progress with that
on mando mercs site my name is "the Unknown mando"
G'day every one, I'd forgotten I'd started a thread on here, here's a few pics of my slow progress. The bucket is an nme props standard merc, working on v2 that'll be with a twoeleven fett dentless helmet #3.
When I update more pics I'll add more View media item 8683View media item 8678
Small update View media item 8423I'd like that led to be more faint, I'll muck around with some resister or trim pot, the led pulses....I'll add a few more in there. At moment it's an idea, to indicate Comms with ship, or someone else View media item 8422Laser diode, not sure whether I'll leave this in or not
Thanks mate, it's been abit slow the last few months. The weathering isn't hard to do, here's link to the mercs page, I did abit of a tutorial there. ( hope that's not breaking a rule) Unknown mando Painting / weathering approach
View media item 8433Bit of work on chest plate and chest display. Got some red acrylic between chest display and plate as well. Needs cleaning up, filing edges
Any suggestions on securing the acrylic and chest lights to the plate?
View media item 8681Received some darts from Machinecraft replicas the other day, awesome work....sharp too.
Installed and loosely fitted the whipcord housing and thing at back. Both bits need another paintjob and some work. Need to add dental files to the housing. Work on silver chunk some it can accept a hose, maybe have cables going through it
Not sure on painting if black or same as the shell. I thought if I painted it black it'll looked like it was pieced together from various sets
Got around to putting led into right gauntlet. Not using the black button nearby ( everyready torch) choose to use black button on top of the gauntlet. Reckon it'll be easier to find when in a oh shit moment View media item 8689Not sure whether to paint the black thing that hoses attach to same colour as gauntlet or leave black
