Nice! I'm very happy with my Cabiri gaunts as well, but a bit of advice: keep the pin in as much as possible. I stored them open (like a di'kut)  and found that the heat had warped them so that the pin holes did not align anymore. I was able to wrestle them back into shape, but I wouldn't wish that struggle on anyone else, and they still aren't perfect. That all said, they are very sturdy and I really like the design!

Oh thanks for the heads up. Will do!

Finally had a nice day to paint, and so i worked a bit more on my helmet. It's coming along nicely.  I think it needs something, to give it a little more 'pop'. Suggestions? I've thought of kill marks but well i've only got a few colours. White, Black and grey (flack vest)

I love that your shiny mando is looking pretty grimy now. That bucket looks awesome. My thought- a small hint/trim piece in a solid color- red, dark green, dark blue. Maybe the kill stripes in those colors? You want a pop of color, but nothing too crazy.

Another potential idea- a subtle outline of certain pieces in another color- like a very faint red outline around the caps, ridge, etc. You'd have to be really delicate though.

A small pop of an accent color can do wonders for a kit. I have a set of 9 kill stripes that I put on all of my helmets (even my Rebel X-wing helmet has them), in the same dark purple color regardless of the color of the rest of the kit. Its a sort of trademark of my costumes if you will.

Kill stripes are a good way to add an accent. You can also just paint a small piece like the top of an earcap or a stripe on a shoulder bell in a contrasting color.

I found some 3d files on easy who sells it with all attachments, and my friend who owes me printed them for me.
