So, the first thing I heard from my daughters upon becoming official, " Yes! Now we can do our kits!"
First-
Heavy armor, executioner style bucket


Second,
-no pic- Wren style plates, bucket, different shades of purple

Third
Was a bit more creative! As the youngest, her thought was that her plates would be handed down. Standard bucket, light armor....this kit has already earned the nickname "skittles" 🤣



Sooo...scratch buckets are going to be the best for having so many different styles, and smaller sizing.
Lots to do, but coming together!

Love that you're taking on 3 simultaneous scratch builds :) Keely's son's bucket was one of my attempts that wound up being too small.

Errm, a wee bit more on the crazy side...three builds, three completely different styles...and three different sizes. On the plus side they are very involved too!  Power tools and all!

Very, very cool.  I'll enjoy tagging along for this ride.

Thank you!  The cheeks were my favorite part! They took a 2D bucket and just gave it the extra 'Hey, these are mando helmets!' look.  They are so excited, there is a Con coming up this week,  so Rett is doing a  quick coat of paint so they are wearable, but  there is a LOT of fine tuning and detailing needed to get them ready for app. Definitely getting there!

Finally somewhat recovered from the Con, but here is a (very very very) rough peek of our ade kits. 


(Taken by the very talented skittle wrangler, Evan.)

There is still so much work to be done yet, but they had so much fun!

Thank you!  We are just waiting for the temps to settle a little bit cooler so we can get them finished up. They are really rough right now, but its just a little sanding/painting/ touchups, and weathering and will be good to go!

Akkk...let it go a bit longer than intended. We are steadily re-finishing the girls kits.
Re-doing the weathering, and filling gaps.


Received earcaps/ Rangefinders and antennas, having to chop a little to fit the smaller buckets


One backplate shaped and shortened to fit


And the other backplate shortened and shaped! Ran'kal's armor plates are so teeny!
