Hello everyone!

I present my second kit progress.  it is going to be a Mandalorian Pilot.  His Character name is Guaybana (I'm still working on the family name).  The name Guaybana came from one of the Chieftains natives that lived in our country.

The materials that I'm using for the build are 6mm sintra for the armor and some parts of the helmet.  For the soft parts,  I'm going to use canvas (for the vest) and cotton flightsuit.

Concept of the kit

The concept of the kit is going to be more or less like this one. I'm not much of a good drawer. I used the Mando Maker app to se how more or less is going to be.





Helmet

For the Helmet, this is the concept so far.





 I used as a base, Jango Fett Rubie's two piece helmet. I took out the original earcaps and made from scratch new ones. I used E6000 glue to attach both earcaps into the helmet.






For this section,  I used also sintra for the shield details.  I attached the shield to the helmet with some bolts. and securely attached them inside the helmet. 






I  added two elbow pvc pipes in the back of the helmet to put the air tubes securely.



These are the tubes I'm using.




After everything was set for the helmet, I started to add primer paint.






Then,  the silver paint for the weatering.



For the orange peel effect,  I used toothpaste in some areas of the helmet.




After adding the layers of paint, this is the final result of the helmet.




Air breather

For the Air breather,  I used 6mm sintra, two levels, a plastic pill case, Walmart $1 flashlight and for the tube connectors, I used pvc pipe endcaps.





(Sorry for the pvc mess)  this is how it is looking all the pieces placed together.




I used bondo to have the pieces well integrated in the breather. After adding bondo,  I put some spot putty to seal some seams.

Hello there everyone!!

I made some progress on my kit:


Chest box

I made the chest box from scratch. The materials I used are pvc sintra, two levels, pill storage box and a $1 flashlight from Walmart  :D.  For the hose connectors, I used pvc pipe endcaps.








After I put the greeblies in place, I added bondo and spot putty  and sanded it.







Yet, after making sanding finishes, I added primer, then the silver color for the orange peel effect. Then the final colors.





This is how the chest box looks attached with the hoses and the pilot helmet.







Flightsuit



I ordered the flight suit via Amazon. Kolossus Deluxe Long Sleeve... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BK8HTFX?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

It comes big even though it says the correct size.





I have to adjust it more to my body and remove all pockets from the flightsuit.

Hello folks!

I've  made progress regarding my pilot armor.  It is going to be medium armor. 

I haven't finished all the armor, but here is what I've made so far:


Torso armor


I wanted this design and details around the plates.  I don't want too much double plates because it would feel overpacked.  I put the chest box where I want to place for reference and it fit perfectly.




I also made the Knee, shoulder and cod piece armor.








Next will be the guantlets and thigh plates.
