Re: My first suit of Mando armor

Looking good, vod. I envy you. I'd love a set of armor, I simply don't have the time nor motivation to do it. In other words, I'm too lazy to make. And its hard to find good armor to buy.

Great job man!  Are you in the MandalorianMercs?  You should be able to join with what you have already

Re: My first suit of Mando armor

Very nice. Are you going to add anything to the top of the backplate? You look a little exposed there. Personally I think the rifle looks too much like a modern shotgun, but that's just my opinion; don't let that discourage you.

Werda Verd: There are people out there that will make top quality armour for you if you know where to look... wink

well the backplate im actually mounting higher once i fasten everything down permanent, that was more of just a test fitting. and ya the rifle is cobbled together from enough airsoft guns it shouldnt look too realistic tho. better than a nerf gun imo...

Re: My first suit of Mando armor

Nice, cus it looks good. Did you change it much, other than paint? Cus the Don Post helmet (or some) look a little narrow and unnatural, but your looks good.

Re: My first suit of Mando armor

the newer ones are crappy molded plastic
this thing was one of the ollld really thick plastic helmets that they dont make anymore cuz its way cheaper to use thinner materials heh
i mean i did a lot of work in puttying over the dent, sanding down the paint, repainting, cutting the visor, etc
but no re-forming whatsoever

Re: My first suit of Mando armor

I don't know whether to be paralyzed in awe of you or inspired to make my own suit of armor. Great job Mc Coy!
