« on: Sep 12, 2010, 05:41 PM »
Hi guys , ok my concept drawings have been on here a while, now the work starts.


using clone armour as a base  for chest and back


cut diamond and lighting slots .. rivited extra plastic on collar to go over soulders goin for one piece - cade skywalker style chest  collar will also be attached but will have indented seperation giving the classic fett plates look



progression of detailing












eventually will make molds as i will cast my armour in cold cast aluminium

Wow. That is an extremely cool conversion, and a really good example for others wishing to do something similar.

Wow, the amount of detail that you've sculpted in looks amazing already.

This is a conversion done in all the right ways.

I love what you are doing to that armor. It is looking fantastic. Allen I though of that armor you had in the box. Very great idea.

A warrior considers himself already dead, so there is nothing to lose. The worst has already happened to him, therefore he's clear and calm; judging him by his acts or by his words, one would never suspect that he has witnessed everything.

Can someone bring me my jaw from where it rolled off my face after it hit the floor?

Very inventive, and a good example for others. only thing I would do differently is fully separate the two chest pieces. But it looks great man!

Agreed. You actually already have it separated in the drawing and I think it looks fantastic. I would definitely consider separating those two chest pieces, I think it would make it look more like mando armor, IMO. :)
