Electronics / Re: Helmet fan recommendations?
« Last post by Fi-8015 on Today at 02:27 AM »
Take the 5 V Fans, the others would turn only slowly, if at all.
50 mm seems to be a standard size, they are available cheap. If you decide for smaller ones, you have to expect either less flow or more noise at the same flow rate. The opposite applies to bigger fans.
You should also choose the right kind of fans for your planned application. If you want to supply fresh air from the outside through an opening you can use both axial or radial fans. If you want to add circulation inside the helmet and don't want to cut an opening in your helmet you should go with radial fans (or squirrel cage fans).
I can't recommend a specific brand, but any should work fine. The only real differences  should be the power of the motor and the bearings, which can affect the noise level.

Speaking of late responses....  ;D

Thanks, I have some paracord, specifically 650 coreless I'm wanting to try, and I have 3 buckles laid aside, and wanted to make them thick enough. 6 inches sounds right for a chunky 6foot2 mando...
Helmets / 3D Printed Helmet Questions
« Last post by Tacet on Sep 21, 2020, 04:45 PM »
Does anyone know where to buy a 3d printed helmet for a smaller sized head (7 inches ear to ear)? Or would it be easier to try making one from scratch? Thank you.

With the jetpack and helmet, I think once you get into the weathering process, things will come together more.

Boots look great.  We'll chat about leather.  I think I'm going to be the tester for her leather work and can get you pics then.

Weapon has been started

Also took the helmet on a trip - had to modify the turnsignals.
Under XCT3d

Marking out signals

Cut out signals - some cleaning needed

With some paint to show layers

Official Paint time!!

Still minor touches left to do - but bulk is done till weathering

More accurate nose cones printed

Base paints applied

Still have the rings around the thrusters, topical silver brushing and LOTS of weathering, but it is functionally done.

Any ideas on the harness system?

boots - Funtasma boots, leather work TBD

Hey all,

I just wanted to post and say that I have not given up on my build, I intend on seeing it through and fishing it!
With this being my final year of college my school work has taken over any free time I have. Im hoping to get back to work on my build before too long but I wanted to say thank you all for the support and knowledge throughout my build.

This is the way  :jango:
Armor Concepts / first mando build to match helmet
« Last post by weldingdude on Sep 21, 2020, 11:13 AM »

I ordered and completed a paint job on a Mynock's Den Recon helmet with macrobinoculars

and now I'm starting to think about what this guys armor should look like.
at the moment, I'm thinking he'd look pretty good with armor based primarily on the live action death watch armor (maybe swap out the chest/ab plate with a din djarin beskar chest/ab plate?)

Painted to match the bucket, with a medium length cape (style and mounting similar to ESB Fett), no jetpack.

I'm still thinking about weapons, leaning towards dual blasters on the hips... the macrobinoculars make me think he should have a long range blaster of some kind... still TBD...

does this sound like I'm going in the right direction?

I will continue updating this with sketches and updates as they come.
