Back Pack Mount

So, I've finally gotten around to putting some work into my DW Mando. I'm pretty much down to waiting on the flak vest, a little tailoring and mounting my backpack. So I have a harness designed to use quick clips which you can see below. The shape of the animated mando back plate doesn't allow for m...

Re: Death Watch

Did some mock-ups out of cardboard today for the horns. I also made my first test mock-up with magnets. It was a partial success in that the magnet actually held the horn in place, unfortunately it wanted to rotate on me. So I've got an idea I need to test out tomorrow using some pins along with the...

Re: Death Watch

Well I wrapped up paint on everything I have in the shop at the moment. Nothing as exciting as the first batch, this is all gray and black. I did final assembly on the gauntlet however and I'm pretty happy with the end result. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q128/bswedorski/Death%20Watch/IMG_0528...

Re: Death Watch

Well after the successful color and weathering test yesterday morning I spent the rest of the day finishing the red parts of the armor. I also went back and weathered my pistols (I'll have to get a pic of those later) because they were looking a little too shiny for my taste. The best news however w...

Re: Death Watch

Got an early start today. I painted up my boots and did a color test for the red on the shins. I figured they would be the easiest thing to sand down and repaint if I didn't like the looks of them. I'm happy with the results and will be finish in up the red on the rest of the armor pieces over the w...

Re: Death Watch

Getting close to the fun part! All of the parts have been primed and I've hit all of the pieces that will eventually be red with a coat of silver metallic. I'm hoping to put some quality time in this weekend on the painting of those parts. I've got a new helmet on order from Skirata Arms which I hop...

Re: Death Watch

And today's project..... After assembling the forearms, I took measurements and mocked it up in AutoCAD. Using the screen caps, I proportioned the size of the communicator to Kev's to the top of the gauntlet. I used a base of 1/8" MDF board and then took a trip to the hardware to buy a few miscellan...

Re: Death Watch

This will be 501st approvable when complete although there are none to date. There are at least two other people I am aware of starting this project. If things work out for me on the supply side I could be looking at a Legion first :) It's not really my goal but it would be cool nonetheless. As far ...

TK Paint Help

If anyone has some spare Humbrol Gray and Semi-Gloss Black for TK Helmets, I was hoping you might bring it to MCCC so I can borrow it for my helmet.

Much appreciated.

Re: Leather Hole puncher?

The whole problem with this scenario is that he actually asked in the first place :P I seem to recall there being a no keg rule in my dorm but that didn't stop me when I was in college.

Re: You can call me Captain or Sir!

Rex is officially approved.

Got to troop him last weekend at Highland library. The staff is supposed to e-mail us some pics and Dave's wife took a few as well.
