Haha! That is an interesting way to trace your armor templates on your Sintra... I like the way you think  :laugh: lol

Can't wait to see how it all comes together.

Yup! Shaping and bending is next... gotta cut out knee plates and a backplate (I'll need a bigger piece of sintra than the 2'x4' one I have). I won't get any done this weekend/next week though, since I'm going to Florida with my family.

Well... If you put it this way, the only answer there could be... We're not happy with your progres! ;)

I will! And it should go pretty quick, since shaping shouldn’t take that long and then painting is pretty fast... but I need a vest...

There are lots of good ways to either make a vest, or ways to buy one. I made mine based on the shape and style of my old volleyball sleeveless shirt.

I don't trust my sewing skills though, so I'd rather buy one. But they're about $95... I may have enough left over after I buy a .22 rifle.

Can you show a pic of the one you're looking at?  :) Also, sewing isn't that bad unless you're crazy like me and making your own pattern  :laugh:

Looks nice! That's a lighter, more breathable fabric than mine. I made the sacrifice because I wanted a leather look  :rolleyes:

I wish I had been more experienced when I made my own, but you never know until you try, right?  ;)

Yep. Now I just gotta cough up the money. Got some other stuff to get first though. Maybe if a nice bounty would come my way...

That would be nice  :rolleyes:  I haven't seen any well paying ones yet though. I'll let you know if I come across a good one! Two Mandos are better than one, eh?  ;)

For sure! Seems I’ll have to keep hunting numbers in the wild spreadsheet plains for now.

Yep. The Star Wars movies never touch on the day to day life of a "Simple man trying to make his way in the universe", just the high/low/exciting points.
