Havent posted an update in a while, but I have been working on things. The girls plates are all fully base coated in the blue, they will be working on customizing their designs after the holidays. Their initial Verd'ika pictures will be basecoat only.

This week we should be getting in the velcro I ordered to get everyone's kits attached to their soft parts, and I will be cutting my plates out after thanksgiving.

The major updates right now are that I finished attaching the ears to my helmet and putting the scar on it. I left the scar small too look like it had been repaired somewhat, let me know what you guys think. The other update is Krista's cannon arrived.





The goal right now is for my kit to be ready for when the app team comes back from holiday.

Now that is some impressive bangbang. Your helmet looks fine and you have a pretty solid plan.

Havent had a chance to post an update in a little bit, because we just moved into a new home.

Went to a local armour party and resdesigned my plates before starting to cut out. I was fortunate that they had the Jango templates in my size and that really helped the overall look. I should be cutting them out this week or next week.

All four helmets are now done with paint and visors.



If things go well for the end of next week I should have pics of all 3 girls in armour. Felora is already an official Verd'ika.

This weekend I finally got all of my plates cut and started with the attachment to the vest. I had to eat a slice of humble pie as the tac vest I have will not work. Now to save my pennies and buy a Mando vest.

I also got my gauntlets finally. They will start getting worked on next weekend, when I get more spray paint. I still need a second layer on my armour as I ran short.



I also got all three girls done up, and applied to the Verd'ika corps.



It wasnt until after I looked at the pics that I saw that Krista's thigh plate was sagging. Her pants are too big but we are fixing that with sewing.

Your verd'ikade look fantastic!

It's hard to tell from the angle, but your plates look way too big. Get the collar sized so that the edges line up with collar bone and then measure the rest of the torso from that. From the looks of it, you just need to trim the outer edges.

Great work on the plates. Love the distinct touches on all the buckets.

Finally got nearly all my armour on for a test fit.

Mostly happy with the look.



Things I need to work on for OM:
Fix spacing on chest plates
Get a real vest (which should help with some of my attachment issues. Like the backplate lifting)
Tailor the flight suit so it is less baggy
Get a real blaster(my next project is making an A180 like Jyn's)
Attach my knees
Make a Kama and Sash
Finish up my gauntlets (I got a pretty decent pair 3d printed, and I am working on paint and greeblies)

Any additional tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

I also added pics of the girls in their completed armour to the first post.

Progress on everyone's kits.

Current projects:

My wife is making me a new vest
We are recutting my chest and belly plates
I 3D printed a new chest diamond which I am loving
I am also printing a DC 17 to be the blaster I apply with

Since this picture the wife has already tailored the flight suit so it is less baggy, and we ordered chicago screws to get a better attachment on the plates.

Where'd you get the little R5? Also, love the smallest person holding the biggest weapon. Great job all around.

Disney world. Thats the family droid R4-D3r (Raider) a refurbished R4 unit in an R5 body. Totally worth the 120 or so he cost.

HA, I love the family pic!

Now I just need to
A.) be able to get started on my own,
B.) Wait for my Bitty to grow up a bit,
and
C.) Make him some armor too (much to my wife's chagrin, probably!)

Also. . . . .

. . . love the smallest person holding the biggest weapon. Great job all around.

Completely agree!

This is amazing and I LOVE that your girls are having so much fun with this, I would've loved to have had Mando kit at their ages!

Finally finished my blaster I will apply with. A surplus DC 17 left over from the Clone Wars.




My wife finished tailoring my flight suit, so now the gauntlets fit and its not as baggy. I also got spats which look really good. We are working on the new vest and possibly replacing some of the plates that I did a poor job of cutting. Hopefully pics of the new set up soon. Then application time.

The vest is nicely done.
