Those boots are killer. And I really like the weathering on the flight suit. I will be referring to this thread when I start weathering for sure.

L.A. Police Gear. I don't know if they're still running it, but when I got mine it was on sale for $40. You can find all kinds of flight suits on Amazon too (how I found mine).
google is your friend, ner vod.

ok, so I'm starting on my second kit, a ComMando, piece by piece.
The pauldron is about half done. Gotta attach the black shoulder piece to the armored pauldron, and get 2 or 3 magazine pouches.




Should have the flight suit weathered later today.

Flight suit for my second kit has been weathered for a LONG time now, just finaly got around to snapping pics of it.





The pics kind of washed out the color here, but it's the same as my pauldron. Desert Tan.

have you considered maybe adding a plate across the toe section of the boots? I found these boots about a week ago and thought they would look amazing as armored mandalorian boots but I only thought of the shin place and a toe plate. the plate on the heel looks awesome!

I was going to add a plate across the top of the toe, and I may still do it, but for now it's not real high on my list of stuff I'd like to do.

The pauldron bends the way it looks like it would, with the segmented plates. The plates are pop riveted to a piece of pleather that I cut and hemmed to the shape of the ARC trooper pauldron. I based this whole idea on the Order 66 ARC Trooper by Hasbro.

The shoulder "pipe bombs" are made of some 3/4 inch PVC and endcaps. I made a shoulder bell for them to sit on, and then riveted them in place. The shoulder piece is attached to the pauldron by rivets as well.

The whole thing just goes over my head in one piece. The shoulder "pipe bombs" have a piece of sticky back velcro on the bottom that goes with it's mate that's attached to my collar plate to keep it from sliding down my arm while trooping. The pauldron part just rests nicely on my shoulder and doesn't really move because I reinforced the bottom of the pauldron with some craft foam to give it some rigidity.

I will say that it took about 3 or 4 versions of this before I was happy with it. What you see in the pics above, was the V1 pauldron. The only thing that made it into the final one was the plates.

It was actually quite cheap to make. Really only around $20 total.

I'll take a couple more shots of it up close so you can see about how I made it.
