I think that design will be cool if you can pull it off. But no doubt, with as fine a details as those are, that'll be a tough job.

UPDATE!
I have my helmet purchased and on the way! currently i am looking into the plastic for my armor and i am also working on applying for a job so i can actually pay to get this suit done...

anyways; i have recently been thinking about stuff i could have different on my armor and i was wonder if its common to have different designed armor parts on my kit? like say my kits Red and Grey and i have a Blue and Green gauntlet from another mando my character killed or was friends with? i'm asking because i wanted to put a shoulder piece with a different design on my armor and in staid of the Blue, Tan and Grey it work be Red, Black and Grey. i know boba fetts armor is pretty much just a mix of stuff he got from other mandos but im also not sure if there are any CRLs about color schemes and i dont want to make something i will regret. also does anyone know of any creatures from star wars i could make some sort of trophy out of to put on my belt or even on my helmet?

thanks and i will have another update ASAP!

Having asymmetrical shoulders, gauntlets, knees, shins,  is no problem. 

Having different colored bits of gear on your kit is totally approvable -- weathering still needs to be consistent.  The only real rules about color schemes are -- don't use earthy patterns, or off the shelf camo patterns, and don't make it look like your sponsored by a specific company or sports team. 

As far as creature trophies, stay away from humanoid body parts and bones to avoid bumping up against the family friendly/gore clause (Mouse is watching). But there are people with wookie fur braids (Boba even), animal claws, etc.

What helmet did you order?

I HAVE A QUESTION!!!

on my armor i plan on adding several small things to it like i plan to add some chest diamond trophies as well as some other things my mando could use. One of those things happens to be a lightsaber. This lightsaber would be a working one not a trophy, it would also have a great amount of symbols and weathering on it sorta like its been passed down through the years. I was wondering what the current opinion of having lightsabers as weapons for mandalorians is? Can i have them? Are they banned? Do i need to be in a certain brigade to have one? the story behind the lightsaber i would use is basically it is the lightsaber of like my characters great(x30) grandfather or something like that. this grandfather killed a sith and took the lightsaber and then had a jedi purge the dark side from it making it a white lightsaber. then it just got passed down through the years. if someone could tell me if this is allowed or not that would be great!

Lightsabers are like others said a no no as Per the CRLs. But the are no allowed to be working, it could only be on your kit as a none-working trophy. I have one on my kit that is just that and I was approved through the app process with it as is on my kit. It is never taken off or played with during a troop though. Its merely to let other scum Jedi know I'm not to be messed with!  :P

as far as the lightsaber goes i may not even add it because it isnt really practical to have if its just their to sit on my belt and scare people.

in other news i still dont have a job so it may take me a bit to get the parts for my armor

Best advice I was given early on in my own build is to treat your kit like a marathon.  A steady pace will win out in the end.  So, don't worry about your build if you need to focus elsewhere, we'll be there when you're ready to get this going.

Haha fair enough, anywhere but the North. I'm technically in Ohio not Canada but the weather stinks all the same
