Haha height has nothing to do with it, you can still be plenty scary. My one friend is barely five feet tall and a hundred pounds soaking wet, and she can still be a living nightmare if you piss her off  :laugh: And I'm a guy and barely 5'6", so I'm still a lot shorter than most people. I can just jump high enough to side-kick 'em in the face if they remind me of it too much  :P

Can't wait to see those stun-batons, I'm interested to see what you've got in mind for them.

http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=103999.0 Roe Mantar's, actually, from the first page of that there thread, is the design I'll be mimicking. Except I do plan to add some sort of grip, just to make them a little easier to hold. (May have to learn to twirl them a la Mockingbird style though.. you can't have batons and -not- twirl them..)

That re-design is awesome and a half! Really like the suggestion of the pass cards too. Little things can elevate a kit far beyond your original concept!

Thanks! I found a site that laser etches business cards into plexiglass, and then lights them with LEDs. I found a cheaper, non-laser method for etching (using a dremel), and now I'm just trying to figure out how I can light it without making it bulky.

I found this acrylic which should do the job: http://www.delviesplastics.com/p/Fluorescent_Cast_Acrylic_Sheet.html Probably gonna get it in green, as it looks the most SW-sy.

Also think I'm going to nix the knife, and instead make or buy a pair of in-universe cuffs. Makes more sense for a jailer to have those, after all! Also gonna probably change things so both stun batons are on one hip, the whip on the other, and cuffs and key/pass cards hanging from the belt. (And a d-ring for hanging the helmet somewhere on there too..)

Sounds solid. Have you thought about incorporating a data slate into your gauntlets or on your hip as an extra? Jailers could keep track of their captives etc and have quick access to the info etc.

My left gauntlet is going to be for communications-- I've got a few greeblies I think would work well (especially a tiny phone greeb that would make for a good-looking holo-projector). Not sure what you mean by a data slate, do you have any examples?

My thoughts exactly. The whole point of having all these weapons was so that, if by some chance a prisoner got one from the armor, they couldn't do any real damage. The knife was the only outlier, and having cuffs makes far more sense. Also convenient for jailing-and-bailing! :D

I do have a job that pays me pretty well now though, so that helmet might be in my near future! \o/ Haven't made any other progress though.

So the good news is I heard back from NME props about the sizing on the Stalker Medium... the bad news is they think it might be too big since it's one of their biggest helmets. I've asked them if any of their helmets would fit someone like me, but it seems it's time to start looking for a backup. :C A sad development, because I really had my heart set on the Stalker, but I'd rather not look like a giant bobblehead while in armor. Alas!

Looking like a bobblehead really doesn't matter if you can kill with ruthless efficiency...

True, but I want my enemies to die by my hand, not from laughing themselves to death!

That being said, their Mercenary helmet is actually a bit smaller than my current, so I may go for that. I'd like to add some stuff onto it because I really love the look of the Stalker and all its doodads, but I'm not sure what I'd use to add on-- fiberglass, resin, etc. Defs not bondo, it'd crack if I dropped it...

You could cut some slots to insert sintra into for structure then bondo the fine parts... Might be a little complicated but that's what comes to mind.

Another thing you could do is a lowering blast shield or night-vis goggles. Both would be appropriate in a dark or dangerous jail, I'd imagine.

Using sintra is an idea, though I'd really rather not cut into any helmet I buy just because I'd haaaate to ruin all that good work. But a blast shield or night vis goggles could be interesting. I was just thinking of purely aesthetic changes, lol.

WHO HAS TWO THUMBS AND JUST ORDERED HER BUCKET?

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Since the Stalker would be too big, I ordered a Medium Mercenary since it's about the same size as a J2P. Also paid for visor install because I'm lazy and terrified of my band saw. >___> But should be here in 8 weeks from what the folks at NME have told me. In the meantime, can start working on drafting armor, soft parts, etc.

EXCITED. NO TURNING BACK NOW.

Haha, thanks everyone! No real progress to show, will probably be a bit slow going since I only get paid monthly and this month there hasn't been much work to do. But the helmet, which has been the most expensive piece so far, is likely on its way! I'll probably do the soft parts next so I can repattern my torso pieces accordingly.

These are the fabrics I'm planning on using for the flak vest and then the optional cape/loincloth:

http://www.joann.com/jo-ann-stores-duck-canvas-fabric/prd23683.html#q=duck+cloth&start=1 for the vest, in Olive.

http://thefabricexchange.com/solid-metallic-foil-spandex-60-inch-olive/ And for the optional half-cape and the loincloth. I wanted something with a wet-look shine, but not satin/sequins. Had little luck with finding a lame in that color, but this looks like it could work! To me it looks pretty futuristic, and adds a little 'oomph' to an otherwise dark kit lol

Just gotta pattern things out!

Duck cloth looks good, metallics not so much. Foil fabrics look futuristic in a super spaceman way rather than a down to earth star wars way.
