Are these the official CRL list? If so AMAZING!!!! :porg2:

Yeah I would also be curious how close to complete these are.    Also, the Baltic Blue and Light Blue colors for the armor, as well as the yellow ochre...are those names coming from a specific brand of paint?  Because multiple brands might have the same color names but they will look different.

Also, I have done alot of research on this and I don't believe the flight suit it black as thsi CRL is stating.  It's more of a dark to medium gray.

This image of the cardboard standup is by far and away the best image we have of the costume and it's clearly not black.  It's a dark gray very similar to the color of the Din costume.

This is a good shot of the Din costume which is much more brightly lit.

And you can see here how dark that costume can look in the wrong lighting.

Could be a black flightsuit heavily weathered with dust or similar dirty weathering.

I think it's a dark gray.  Death Troopers are black.  This is nowhere near black.

I would also say dark grey for the flightsuit. Looking at the standee image the gloves are without a doubt black but the suit is nowhere near that dark. With heavy weathering it would be very difficult to get an even tone across the whole of the costume.

I’ve turned dark green camp utilities tan doing sugar cookies at Marine Corps bootcamp Lol consistency is a matter of how long you do it!

As a connoisseur of black soft parts (nearly every kit I've done since I joined had them) there's a wide variety of shades of black before you get into gray, and a lot of them depend on weathering. There's also a pretty big difference between black leather and black cloth. I can see the argument from the cardboard cutout about 'dark charcoal grey' but at that point there's a really fine line between it and 'weathered black'. The brown 'dust' stain weathering across the suit would turn black to a lighter black, and charcoal grey to more of a middle grey, in my experience.

Right gauntlet colour I don’t think is reddish brown, from looking at 4K still shots it looks more like molotow chocolate brown then weathered

Hey all, I'm new here and joined the forums to put in this request. I think the wording on the belt boxes should be changed slightly.

Current - "Must feature four large, rectangular pouches on each side."
Updated - "Must feature 2 large, rectangular pouches on each side, with 4 total across the belt"

Or something to that effect. As it reads now it sounds like you want 8 total pouches, which just isn't the case.

Thanks for your consideration.

In regard to the flightsuit colour, perhaps adding a line to clarify that the black flightsuit should appear to be more of a dark charcoal grey after weathering would help clear up any confusion with those building this costume.  Many people collect their own reference images since the CRLs do not provide any reference images and wording like how the CRL is currently worded can be confusing in situations like this.  Same as for the comment on the belt pouches.

I've seen people commenting on our CRLs from The Mandalorian in various facebook groups and many are not satisfied with the lack of visual references and inconsistencies with reference images, to the point where I've seen several people say they won't even bother applying for MMCC membership.  I know that the CRL writers worked hard to put these together and they did a great job, but it still seems like a few updates are needed.  Just something to consider.

Baltic Blue = Tamiya X-13?

A point on gun barrels.

"The barrels must feature heat discoloration at the muzzle."

On the Amban Phase-Pulse rifle mandibles, yes, I agree, it looks cool too.

On the triple barrel blaster, the flash hiders would be sooty, carbon scored, not heat stained. There are some brass copper elements in the body I intend to heat stain, but not the muzzle. Plus I am doing all in black except the air cooled jackets. I will do them in Gun Metal and see what effect I can get out of Tamiya weathering kit when it arrives. its coming together and looking good so far.(http://E:\Downloads\33-machine-gun-mg34-on-bipod.jpg)
