I LOVE your bucket. How'd you make/acquire it? And did anything in particular inspire its design?

Mandalorian Q&A / Question - helmet approval
« Last post by AlexB32 on Dec 01, 2020, 01:44 PM »
I have a question about:

A seller on Etsy is claiming that their helmet design has been approved by MMCC for modern/post imperial era's.  I wanted to verify that this is correct.

I know it's been a while since my last post here, it's been a rough year to say the least...

But recently I have moved into a new house with a full workshop in the basement and I have begun to work on my kit once again.
To begin with, I had gotten most of the plates ready for painting.

My Custom Bucket

My Chest Plates/Shoulders

My Legs

After lots of prep work, I painted the entire kit with an aluminum metallic base coat. Then I used rubber cement to create weathered areas.
Painted a second coat over that using a matte black primer. Once again I added more rubber cement to the weathered areas.

After those coats, I continued my paint job using a custom slate blue I had mixed and a bronze metallic.
Hours after everything dried I went back and removed the rubber cement to show the massive amount of weathering I had added to the armor.

I decided not to add any physical scarring because it view this to be Beskar and as such it should not be easily scratched beneath the surface.
I did add what appears to be a large dent from a high powered blaster in my back plate.
I want my kit to look like I've been through years of combat in harsh environments, causing my paint to wear heavily and I plan on weathering my soft parts equally as well. I have yet to do the fine detail work nor the black wash and drybrushing to finish the paint job. But I thought I should update my post here with my work in progress.

My Bucket





My  Chest plates


My Shoulders


My Backplate


My Legs



And Lastly, my test fitting of the plates


I still have more work to do, but I think I am on the right path. Let me know if you see anything I am missing.

Also, I have hand made my own custom Blaster Pistol from Urethane Foam (Hard Foam) and Metal.


As I said, any advice is appreciated as this is my first kit.
