Ellie's Din Djarin Build Thread
« on: Sep 28, 2020, 10:18 AM »
Howdy folks! I've been working on my Mando off and on for a little bit, and now that I've finally finished moving I'm diving back in.

Update: my photos broke! So I'll just clear that out and post my current status.
-Flight Suit is complete
-Boots are just blank boots that will get boot covers

-All armor/buckles/bullets/blaster/rifle/knife are printed!
Here's my on-the-fly twitter thread: LINK

Flight suit! Forgive how dusty it is, I work in a basement. Full range of movement (I can jump, sit, stand, run, etc) and made of 100% cotton canvas so I don't bake to death. Let me know how the sizing looks!


Over-all fit with as many pieces as I could tape to my body.


Right Leg Sizing -


Bracer Sizing -


Shoulderbell Sizing -


And last but certainly not least, that beautiful helmet for sizing.
I think I just need one or two more rounds with gloss black and polishing until I'm happy with the helmet; got some small pockmarks that I can see and then I can finally chrome it.



Very interested in input on sizing just to make sure I don't have to print anything from scratch. I'm pretty happy with everything so far.
The bracers will have velcro inside to attach to the sleeves of the flight suit so that they don't shift to the side, since they're pretty top-heavy.

I'll update with photos of where other pieces are soon; going to be mocking up the flak vest and cummberbund/tasset this weekend.

Ohhhhh you're doing the fancy Beskar version!

Tough to tell on sizing as I'd like to see Application style photos from a little further away to get the whole picture.  From the pictures you've provided, I don't see anything glaring at this moment.

Jill from Razorcrest reminded me to be posting in this thread so I'm going to try to update more often! I do work on this a little bit every day but run into a lot of challenges. I'm making progress though!

So I updated the main post today, and here's a lovely out-take from my sizing photos


Let me know if I formatted this incorrectly and I'd be happy to fix it.
I'll take some rifle photos tomorrow when I have some time!

Updating your forum WIP goes a long way in helping the Application Team, as well as the Brigade Team understand how you went about your build process and assists us with pointing out small details that may be hard to see in your application pictures.

No worries about the format.  To each their own!

Blaster is looking good!

On the hip plates, the color and shape looks a bit off from references. Here a few reference photos:

This is a tough one, but I do think Rayne is right.

The sides should have a pretty good curve on them and these almost seem like they come to a point in the middle.

OKAY I'M BACK AT IT.
I'm so sorry I haven't been updating this thread; work on this kit has been very sporadic over the past year, for all the usual reasons. But I'm at a wearable state, everything is rigged (sort of).
Because of Rayne's comments above, I did end up getting a more recent version of the hip plates; they're drying from the most recent round of paint.
I keep tweaking things so that things fit the way they're supposed to. I'm eager for input at this point to make sure there's nothing major I should change before progressing.




As of this test fit, I'm planning on:
-shortening the cummerbund
-adjusting the rigging on the shoulders to sit further down on my arm
-taking 1-2 inches off the flak vest shoulder so that it doesn't bunch near the armpit
adjusting the fit of the belt to sit lower and looser
-re-rig the chest plate to sit more flush to the ab plate

I'm wondering if I should take the thighs of the pants in a bit more? They seem very baggy and make the thigh plates look small.

Let's take the pants in a bit before upping the scale on the thigh plates. Your left plate looks more on the smaller side than your right, but let's see how it looks once you take in the pants.
