I did mine in 3.4 monthes.    Mind you-with just about all the materials lyeing around.   And I don't have a life what-so-ever. Nor have I ever had a girlfriend. I could keep going-but I don't want to undercut myself :P

I will try and get this to you later this evening. If I would have known you were on a timetable I would have been busting my butt this weekend instead of being a slacker!

And if I wanted you busting your butt for me, I might have mentioned it.   Don't worry about it.  I have so many other parts that are in the works right now, the bucket isn't a huge deal.  As I said, I'd rather mess up a shoulder or a chest plate that is easier to replace than the 97-part, 16-page bucket. LOL  Take your time, chillax.  [[what.. I'm bringing it back...]]

It is awfully hard to get a picture of yourself without blocking the view when you can't see, and My Lady is still asleep so I'm getting some work done.   I think I am going to lose the built-in abs and go with a set of my own design.  That is Cyrax's neo-crusader chest model that I put together last night, which looks like it should fit beautifully with my initial plan with very little modification other than removing the abs and adding my own segmented ab plate.  I was also initially planning on having the collar and chest as a single piece, so I may add in some "straps" to go over the shoulders also when I get around to modding the chest.

Without further ado, the pics of this morning's test fitting are here

For those of you playing along at home, here is the initial concept sketch and my current status, side by side:




Those are still the base straight-out-of-HALO shoulders, so they will get much closer once I get around to cutting them up and adding to them, as seen in the mockup I posted earlier.  Seeing them side by side, I think I'll also extend the "pecs" on the chest plate down another half-block, and adding in the shoulder "strap" can give me the v-neck look also.  So the only real big change from concept is cutting out the under-arm bit of the chest, which would be more practically done with straps instead.

All in alll.. I'm on my way.

when  was putting the shoulders together, all I could see was a wolf's head, but it's almost impossible to point it out now that they are done.  It's funny how we see images and shapes in things like that.  My wife saw it and said "wouldn't it have been so much easier to just buy football pads?"  *sigh*

and of course-we all know Mandalorians are the Spartans of star wars, and the mandalorian wars was like the Alxander the great's conquest of the known world, so I would asume there wouldn't be any CRL violations in previous post`s stated design.



[Yes, I know that the Spartans weren`t Romans]
