Kryamla's TCW Bo-Katan Build
« on: Aug 28, 2017, 12:10 PM »
Well after nearly 2 years and close to 70-something troops, it's time to build a new kit! Some people in my clan are gearing up to do a Death Watch squad so I decided it would be a good challenge for me to do Bo Katan.

While I'm waiting for the armor to arrive (any day now!), I got started with my "flight suit". I have to dye the top part and add the blue trim to the short sleeves, but this is where I'm at:


(Pardon my face and poor lighting, best I could do by myself last night lol)

It's made out of 3 different pieces: a jumpsuit, a grey turtle shirt, and the sleeves from a long sleeve shirt. I have enough fabric from the shirt to make the gloves since the soft goods are all supposed to appear as one continuous piece.

So yeah, that's where I'm at! It's going to be a slow process for me since I want to take my time and do it right.

Yeah, forgot to mention that! Clone wars bo! And I certainly will! Thank you for the offer :)

Update!
My armor already arrived! Talk about fast shipping! It shipped yesterday lol

Everything is quite large and will require a lot of trimming but I have faith that it can be made to fit me (in case you didn't know, I am of the hobbit sized Mandos ;) ). Not pictured are the back of boot armor pieces and resin pieces for the gauntlets. Once it cools off, I'll get to trimming. Way too hot right now.

Thanks guys mal and evaar'la! :D

Sadly no progress on the armor today as I need to pick up an xacto knife or something so I can start trimming!

Hoping it starts to cool off soon (it's been over 100 where I live) so I can get some real progress done. My tentative goal to have this done is by may 4th of next year!

Hey
I'm new to this forum and I was looking for a Star wars characters outfit, but I can see that you are making outfits yourself, Is that true? or you just buying parts of shields, helmets etc?

You can buy your armor in  kits from the many vendors we have in the Mandalorian Supply depot or you can build your own armor from scratch. It's up to you  :)


I haven't seen many Bo Katan builds on the forums. Looks like a great start!

It depends on what route you want to go. If you're crafty and have some skill (even just a little skill), you can make most of the items required for a kit. Or if you're not as crafty, we have members who produce kits to buy but they'll still probably require a little bit of work to get them to fit properly.

 Now this kit is purchased since it's so stylized.

Thanks! I'm really excited!! :)

A dremel with a cutting wheel will take care of the big chunks you need to trim off the armor. Then a sanding drum and a soft touch for the detail work. But do it outside. That vacuform plastic will get really messy.

Aviation snips (technically for cutting sheet metal, but can also cut most plastics between 1/32" and 1/4" thick)  also work great if you want less mess. You can buy them at Home Depot
