First Kit WIP - Progress Report
« on: Apr 01, 2019, 11:41 PM »
Warning: This post is very pic heavy.

Just wanted to share my kit WIP I've been slaving on for the last few months. This is my first Mando kit and my first time working in sintra. I am loving it so far and don't think I can ever go back to foam. I've also included a final concept art image so you can see where it's going.

More Progress Soon!

I also have the flight suit already, and I'm working on the flak vest.

Enjoy!

Sorry about that. I tried deleting the failed post but it wouldn't let me.

If you go to the "actions" button it should let you delete or remove the post.  Or...just let this particular fade into obscurity.   ;D

It's not letting me. It says I cannot remove my own topics on this thread. I guess it shall remain...

That is some pretty progress you got there. Love the pauldron.
concept art looks great too.
Those shnees, are probably 3d printed of a sith acolyte leg right?

Thanks a bunch! The shnees are actually a cold resin cast in an original style. Very similar to an acolyte but not quite.

aaaah Even better! The design matches indeed a lot of the Acolyte. But great choice on Cold cast, those things are pretty awesome!
