Thanks Vhett, that means a lot coming from a pro like you :)

Torolf - vor'e Vod ;), as for your question - sure, I just need a week or two to finish the rangefinder and then I'll be opening thread in supply depot. So if you're  interested just hit me with PM  ;)

This thread needs some helmet appreciation!

I bought Vassk's first production run helmet and I gotta say - it's a top notch work of art!
* It's solid.
* Just look at the way earcaps fit, look!

* It's not all - the helmet has plenty of space inside - I wear a 7 1/4" hat and I can put it on without touching cheek plates.
* Integrated top right earcap piece - brilliant.

Whole set:


Let me tell you - there's a new player in town!

Update time!

I'm finally getting back to work, already bought sintra so I should have all the hard parts ready by the end of next month.
Also, I totally changed the concept of my armor - I'm going to do a heavy Boba-inspired armor (my main inspriations are PP1, HS and McQuarrie's/Johnston's concept arts).
This is what I have so far:


(belt and pouches need some more weathering, blaster's in very early stage of sanding)

(leather spats & M56 [shoretrooper] pouch)

Started working on my knees and cod plate several days ago, I'll make some photos soon.

Update! (finally)  :laugh:

Knees are now fully painted


My bucket is almost finished, here's a WIP thread https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=149476.0


I started to weather soft parts (with shoe polish)

I like the results so far, but I'll be adding more grime to make them really dirty.

I believe that size of plates is ok, but I could use some feedback here. Are they approvable or should I trim them?

Don't worry about spacing here and that chesplate will be reshaped a bit to fit me better.

The chest plate looks a little large but I want to see it after you reshape it.

Paint app on knees and helmet is awesome.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuus. Now this is what I call a bucket! *double thumbs up* Well done sir. I am also slightly partial to those Jaig eyes haha. Also, you might have mentioned this previously in this thread but what happened to that custom belt/pouches you had posted on your first page of this build?

Here's another pic of the chest (sorry for poor quality)

I'm not sure how much I can trim it since I already made those dents near the edge of the plate. Any ideas?
And do I really need to trim the chest?

Thanks Vod, your helmet looks great too ;)
As for the old pouches - I just didn't like them, the quality wasn't as good as I would like to, so I replaced them with different pouches. I would love to upgrade to classic Boba pouches though, but gotta save some money first.

Bucket bros!!! I would say that maybe the under portion next to the ab plate might just be a little to thick. I think it will be easier to tell once you get the other chest plate done and mock attached to your vest. That way we can see everything together. I am stoked to see this come together vod! Also, are you painting with an airbrush?

Width wise the chest looks fine, but it will be easier to tell one the other one is there. Length wise though, the chest may be too long. Itís getting real close to the ab.

Again, hard to tell until both are present.

Such a clean build of the bucket! I wish I had that much patience and skill! Nice work Vod!

It took me almost a year, but now I can proudly present you a first cast of my helmet  ;D





I think it was totally worth all that time and money I spent for it.
Sure, it's not perfect - it was my first attempt at roto-casting so it has some imperfections like minor dome distortion and uneven interior but other than this it looks fine to me.
Soooo...what do you think Vode?  :)

Yup, I'm using gravity feed airbrush (cheapest model I could find  :laugh:) and I'm painting with humbrol enamels.

Width wise the chest looks fine, but it will be easier to tell one the other one is there. Length wise though, the chest may be too long. Itís getting real close to the ab.

Again, hard to tell until both are present.
Sure, I'll try to take better pics with both chest plates on.

Such a clean build of the bucket! I wish I had that much patience and skill! Nice work Vod!
Vor'e Vod. It's not that hard, you should try making your own helmet one day ;)
BTW that first cast was a b-pull, my current helmets are a lot better  ;)

That bucket is looking great. Well done.
Thanks :)
