Custom Mandalorian MANDALORIAN SUPER COMMANDO W.I.P

I've taken some time to myself the last few days to just have some fun with a helmet. There's still plenty of modifications left to make but I thought I'd start sharing a few pictures of the more completed bucket. I'm going for something a bit more "heavy duty" looking, more of an assult helmet. Quite a bit more finishing has been done since these pictures where taken. I'll probably wait until I start painting before I update again.

The RF, when I figure out what design I'm going with will be on the left side instead. In place of the regular RF, a sensor array of some sort will be added. As for the back,.. well I'm yet to design anything yet. I may leave it as.

I see guys saying they would never waste there money on a fiberglass helmet for a custom but I can assure you you would have a very hard time making any modifications on a rubies or dp, simply because of the material there made from. Its hard to get a good bond with that vinyl material they use.

Anyways enjoy and keep a look out for updates. Feel free to comment and offer creative suggestions.!

I am planning on making somesort of flip down secondary visor or maybe something like the EpIII clone commander binoculars.

Also I have no intention of making copies. I'm going to keep this a limited edition #1 of 1:)

That is as limited as it gets LOL:lol:
I'm sure it will be a great piece of artwork nonetheless....(y)

Thats a nice looking Fan intake you've got on the right hand side there. lol should keep you nice and cool. Also, If it were me, I'd stick a speaker on the outside where that conical looking thing is on the cheek, and make it like a hollow cap with holes for the sound to get out.

That's looking really cool. If you do decide to change your mind, I think you can probably sign me up too :-D

I like it. :) Looks great for a work in progress.

Just a couple comments. The tab in the middle of the visor ..
First thing i thought of when i seen it was going crosseyed from staring at it all day. :lol:

The vent on the right side i think would look better with thinner grill bars and Vader type screening behind it.
Just my .02 cents..

I does have the appearance of a heavier armored helmet. Kinda like a prototype RC helmet.. Perfect for an assault type Mandalorian. :)

Looking forward to seeing the finished helmet.

Thanks for the imput JGF, I have already cut off the square on the brow I decided against it yesterday. As for the side intake, its too late for me to change since I've already glassed it in place. It does have 2 opposing layers of screening behind it though.

Ok call me a liar! I've decided to give another update. These pictures were taken today, the others were from 3 days ago. Not much has changed, just a few key details have been added. I accually think I will be done tomorrow with only a few electronics and the visor to get installed before painting.
