Hehe.. yeah.  Its another MS custom,  i think 4 of the 10 are going to be here at Mercs (correct me if i'm wrong.. Novall, Ceric, Allora, Myself).   Like i said above, its just concept.. i might change things around a little.  It also doesnt show weathering (still deciding on how beat-up i want to make it) and whether i want to use regular stickers or go the ink-jet water-slide decal route.   Any suggestions on that ?

Hey join the club. Like I said I will be buying my second tomorrow. It's a gorgeous bucket.

How heavy of a commando are you doing? Clamshell or halfshell (slightly more than Jango)?

Slightly more than  Jango.   Bicep plates, neck armor,  no cod.. doing a little something different (i just wanna beable to sit down :-D ).  Might even add a couple small plates along side the belly armor's side tabs for more protection there,  and i'm also making the chest plates a little bit shorter so i can fit in some middle pieces there (see my Armor thread for a preliminary template pic).    In general.. i'm just playing around with ideas right now.  :-D

Oogie boogie BOO ! Dead Topic Reviveth !

PROGRESS !  Got a Dremel (finnaly) a couple weeks back and i now have all the proper areas cut out.   Granted its not much overall progress.. but hey, it is what it is  ;D





I cut out the front and back grills to accommodate fans.  The rear set of circular cut outs are going to be hose intakes, and for the smaller pair i'm going to fit in 1/4" panel-style red LED's.  

After i figure out the hose situation, and a couple other details, i'll get this thing painted up  :)
