Just an update. I've closed the poll. Happy with the winner, it's one if my favs. Made enquiries with Saz about the helmet. Found a light grey flight suit. Found a foamex supplier. All moving along nicely. Just need funds and time ha ha.

Also used the name generator, didn't show any I liked. So mixed and matched. He will now be known as Vash Noth.

Thanks all that voted.

Helmet design v1.0. Any thoughts? Should I change anything specific?

As a base I think it looks fine, but needs more design added, its a little plain

Yeah, think I've done colours the wrong way round. It'll be battle damaged of course, possibly kill stripes too.

Grey main, with red and black suporting would look better, kill stripes will look even better.
battle damage and weathering is mandatory imo  :P

I'll be honest. I intended it to be grey, with black and red. Why I've done black with grey??? God knows. Kill stripes deffo and battle damage, as you say mandatory.

Can you build knife sheaves into your gauntlets?

I don't see why not.

Bo katan has a knife in her gauntlet and that's canon.

Is this enough of a curve on the belly plate?

That's a beautifully even curve. However I have no idea if it fits the curve of you. Selfie your belly with plate and we shall see :P

Amazing what a cardboard tube can do.

I'll do a above shot in the morning and post it. This was a test with 3mm foamex to see if it held shape.

EDIT: Pic below if belly plate.

Might just need a tiny bit more bend on those outer edges, but I'd say that's a pretty successful test overall :D
And lol, I tend to use a jamjar for mine as I use 6mm :)
