I'm not a fan of full size capes on Mandalorians. It just doesn't look right to me. This is just my opinion though. As for your color schemes I like orange and white one. It was the first one my eyes were drawn to. I'd go with the visor on the left and your icon looks pretty cool. This is just my 2 cents though.

I will definitely attend some troopings before committing to the long cape. However, I am pretty sold on it. It does not preclude some kind of swarzy backpack though.

I've been toying with the idea of Ja'tejag being a Comms and Electronic Warfare heavy bounty hunter. I already have a shoulder or backpack mounted dish antenna built from 70's era photography hardware.

Thanks for your opinions.

Everything looks good! Though without sounding like a nay-sayer, your icon kinda looks like it could be an alternative for the green lantern corps.

Considering I have all nine Lantern corps tattooed on my left forearm I do see a slight resemblance to the Indigo tribe. It's not to much to make it noticeable.

I was going for something similar to Boba's chest emblem, but now that you guys mention it, it does seem more in line with the Lantern Corps logos. Which I was NOT going for.

What do you guys think of the visor design? I have a Hasbro Boba Fett (HBF) helmet, so it needs the eyes narrowed for sure, but I'd like something unique. The paper template will need to be made symmetrical, except I really like the diagonal line below the right eye. I haven't seen many asymmetrical helmet patterns. Is that frowned upon?

If you are going to use an HBF bucket you can not just put a shim over the visor you have to move the visor up and then elongate the bottom of the T and cheeks.

Be sure to check out the how to Mod an HBF thread : http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=45516.0

Thank  you for posting the link to that. I had seen it before and am referring to it for my mods. The template I posted is to check the visor proportion and also the fang style mandibles. My plan is to cut and reattach the T into the templated position, use sintra or styrene for the fangs and fill the gap between the mandible and the plane of the visor.

I bought the HBF before I knew how much work it would require. It will take me time, but I have the skills. When I buy something for my son's kit, I want to spend a little more and work a little less. He wants a skull style helmet, but I think he'd be better off with a Rubies Jango.

Are there restrictions against adding shoulder pauldrons as well as the arm bells pictured?

If you want a Pauldron you can have one. There are a couple of kids that use them. Are you talking about your shoulder bells when you say arm bells?

Yes, I have shoulder bells in progress, but found some cool plastic pieces that would make nice upper shoulder (from neck to shoulder bell) armor. If it doesn't interfere with the bucket.

You can totally have a pauldron, neck armor, upper shoulder armor, shoulder bells, and even bicep armor all at the same time. As long as your armor doesn't interfere with your helmet and it's comfortable, go for it.

Here's another attempt at an insignia design:



And what it would look like on the overall color scheme.



The discerning eye will also notice that I darkend the tan jumpsuit, and made the tan flak vest grey, per the colors of the real fabrics.

The new insignia design looks real good. Just make sure your shoulder piece is correctly aligned when you do it. I painted mine upside down so I have to redo the shoulder now. Liking the darker colors, but I'm still not a fan of the cape.

I have two ideas that I was wondering if you guys think would fly. Please evaluate separately.

1. Dark Eye style probe droid hovering above my head (this would probably be mounted on a clear riser or between a comm-pack antenna and another point).


2. A modified helmet similar to the US Navy flight deck helmets. This would be a modern era full bucket, but with the reinforcement panels at the front and rear of the crown. Also probably enlarged ears.

Here's a pic of the inspiration:

You can absolutely add panels like that. Cyrus Rang was working on a similar design for his pilot. As for an asymmetrical design, I've seen helmets with mythosaur skulls on one side, and there used to be the Krayt bucket with a small krayt dragon around one side of the T visor. I don't see why you couldn't do what you're describing.

I really like the left of the three visor styles the best personally.

Is this less Lantern-ish?

I never thought Green Lantern with your old symbol personally, and I don't really think the new one looks like it either personally. I think you're fine with it. I really like the color scheme you've chosen as well. Still digging the bottom of the two visors the best, but either one is awesome. The first one really invokes images of a mythosaur skull, which is cool, but there's something about the clean look of that bottom flare that really stands out to me. Plus, it'll have better vision than the top one, which isn't to be overlooked.

Liking your current color scheme the best & if you like the cape, go for it. I got a lot flack for having a lot of fabric on my kit, but it was the look I wanted so I stayed true to the idea I had.

As for the Visors, they all have merit. The first one (the flared one) reminds of a Clone Trooper helmet, while the fanged one reminds me of the executioner bucket. me personally the last one looks a little Cylon, the visor should have a bit of a tapered look imo, but again, it is your kit & if you like it, run with it.

Follow the Tutorial on properly modding the Hasbro bucket & you'll be good to go. Looking forward to seeing your build progress

Really cool technique, but I'd be afraid it would flake off too easily & ruin all that hard work. If it stays, I'd say give it a try & let us see it on an actual armor piece so we can see exactly how you plan to use it

Just what Naasad said. Very cool looking, but I can see that flaking off real quick. Maybe with a clear sealer coat on top?
