Mereel's beskar'gam. (Some new Pix)
« on: November 20, 2008, 09:17:37 PM »
Ok so I wanted to use this topic as a progress thread.

Here is a list of what I want/need.

#1. The Helmet
#2. The Chest Armor w/ Stomach and Cod (Glove Armor)
#3. The Back Armor w/ Shoulders
#4. Leg Armor (thigh, Shin, Boot)
#5. Gauntlets
#6. Soft Stuff (Flightsuit, Boot, Vest, Gloves,  Cape)
#7.  Extra's (Weapons, Belt, and other little things)




I started off with the most important part of my beskar'gam, The T-shaped visored Helmet.  I began by making a 'prototype' helmet using the templates provided by Wizardofflights of The Dented Helmet (TDH), made of thin flashing that my mom had. Right now it is held together with Duck and Scotch tape(will post a pic if I can). The look and shape is about right, but it does not fit my head, my nose is to big for it.  Also unless I use a LOT of bondo on the dome, it will look weird (you'll see why in a pic).    

Here is my initial armor design.

Helmet design.

Ok this is my Prototype helmet that does not fit me.  I used a sprite bottle to make the visor, so I could give it to my little brothers.   (Made out of thin slashing)

I will try to make another Wof Scratch Build soon!!  It will try to be finish before Christmas, so if it fails, I could still ask for  a pre-made one for a present!! :D   (My next will be made of "Sale Sales" signs and a dome of some sort)


 


I Might get a trash can and start my armor today too!!!

Wow that's looking pretty good. If you can make a helmet out of some stuff lying around and a sprite bottle. I should be okay in making mine.

Now if I could just be less lazy...

I was looking at that affordable armor eariler this week. i have enough money on hand right now to buy it. The only problem for me is that it has no gauntlets. But those are probably the hardest part of Mandalorian armor so I'll let it slide.

Awesome scratch build xD, this makes me want to do one. Also, there are templates to make the gaunts. I'm going to make my boba style gaunts out of card stock and then I'll resin it over.

If you wan't really cheap armor, just go trash can :P. About $20 if you have a Dremel and some skill. If you don't have either of tose, I'd just go with "Affordable Armor"(Which by the way rose in price by $7 :P)

You better show us some progress when you do those gaunt's, cause now I'm interested.  That sounds like a good idea using card stock. 

And I'm going with trash can armor!!!! 



Back to my progress.

I have started a new Scratch build helmet using the 'For Sale' sign method and using Ohl'd Varts Turtorial, it can be found here. http://mercs.firespray.net/forum/index.php?topic=320.0

Will post more, and pictures a little later.

There's this cool show on youtube called BFX: Backyard Effects. It shows you how to make do-it-your-self Halo armor.

The instructional video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1WK26NHx0o

The test video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwQdFdMVC_o&watch_response

ARG, 1 post until Commander!
