I've removed the images so that I may place them within their own topic free of comments so they will be easier to view.  I'll be doing the same with the (Tor) Vizla Deathwatch images as well.  I'll also be re-editing them to give close ups of detailed parts such as the helmet and guants.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

I've decided to reactivate this since it has been sitting around for quite some time now. Anyone out there actually planning on doing any sort of TM build besides myself?

Depends on what the standards end up being... My second kit (but the first one I envisioned, much to my numbering irritation) will be steel darkened a slight bit by blackening compound (enough to make it look aged/darkened, but still steely in colour and shiny, not black). I may do the shoulders in a contrasting colour, but I'm not sure yet. The visor frame will definitely be blue, though. The closest match in what has been sorted out so far would be an early-era TM circa Open Seasons issue 1, but timeline-wise, this armour is going to be post-ROTJ. So... *shrug*

Either way, it's still a good couple years, probably, from being finished. Bits of it I have now, particularly those parts that will be interchangable with my other Mando costume(s), but others will come over the next year, and still others require more equipment and funds than I have right now.

At this point we have several Jango Fett's and a couple Jaster's in the club but none have stopped in here yet. We have several people who have talked of Montross or TM Grunts. However, I havent seen action in their threads on teh forums for some time.

As Pere said, what are we using here? No one's yet stepped up to take control and start laying it down. We have several people building Mandalorian Protector with trim of blue, yellow and red. They seem kind of like a grey area between MP's and TM's.

I was waiting for someone to start this!

What you described was also in the later days of the True Mandalorians after Jango had grown to late teens early twenties. In the early days, they TM's wore silver armor with teh same listed color accents.

One thing too is JP's didnt seem as prevelant with the TM's as with the MP's.

OK, big N00b question, what are JP's?

In all honesty the ear caps on the TM's are  a pain. No one actually produces helmets with them and it involves a lot of cutting on the helmets to get them to sit in right.

As Pere said, what are we using here? No one's yet stepped up to take control and start laying it down. We have several people building Mandalorian Protector with trim of blue, yellow and red. They seem kind of like a grey area between MP's and TM's.

I will try and work something up as far as specifics for them.

in all honesty i dont think their that hard to make,i have made 10 sets of them very easily and i intend to use all 10 on my helmets modeling mine to a picture of a jaster mereel helmet i found on the internet and im very confident that i will have no prolem getting them to sit correctly on my ''bucket helms'',and since you say no one actualy produces helmets with these ear caps i might end up taking it upon my self to fill that void...if i am given the oportunity and if my budget alows me

That is mega sweet!  Although upon looking through some different pics, there seem to be a few different styles of ear pieces that are sported on the True Mandalorian buy'ce.....
