I'd think a master chief style mando would be a heavy mando. Totally covered from head to toe with armor (ultra hot in the summer =D) just like Master Chief.

yeah...i designed some of the leg plates last night...he's gonna be like a mixe between a fett style mando, and a crusader with a mix of master chief in for fun lol...the leg plates have to wrap all the way around the leg...they are goin to be the biggest problem lol

Look at the way stormtrooper legs fit, they are made from 2 sections that overlap each other, as does most of the trooper armour. Leave enough room for movemnet of joints, of he will not be able to move.

Mock up the armour using paper or card first, that way you will get the right size and look, after you have marked the template out onto the sintra, just cut them out and shape with a heat gun.

For most of my armour i used this idea, and it has worked so far... good luck dude.

i wont be purchasing any of it...i will be ALL hand made to my friends spec's...the only purchses will be a bucket and gauntlets (not sure if he wants boba's or soemthing different)...i had an idea for his bucket aswelll..i havnt toild him yet but what do you guys think of moddin a biker scout helemt into a mando bucket with a Halo twist...master chief has the peak on his bucket...and i figure a Biker scout is the best way to emulate this peak?

Hey, just a suggestion, maybe you would want to put the keys/notches in the chest pieces also? Since the center chest piece has them, it might look cool.
