Some of you may have seen this on the Mandalorian mercs site. This is my Custom merc Carid Vhett. Still needs a lot of upgrades before it is acceptable but it is done for this year.
Pics.

I will be tweaking it next year, getting a new vest from overseas and maybe a flightsuit as well, as this one is two short.

Just a few app style pics to show my armour in its current stage.

I will be doing more soon as I have been in talks about getting a nice vest as the one I made is Osik.

Looking good!

With my Mandalorian I may be making shin armour that will hopefully hide some of the bagginess from the Flight suit and looks good as well - Not sure if you plan on it but even still keep up the good work!

First of all, need to keep checking this.
Second a jetpack will not be happening in the foreseeable future, I am doing a Cape for it though.
Third littlebigmikey my flight suit is too short, and I can not lengthen it, also if yours is too long or baggy it will need to be taken in a bit if it is to become offical (assuming you are going for that)
Fourth small bit of work I did just to add some lived in feeling to it

I like it to. Much better than the one I made.
Took to the armour with some steel wool to reduce the black paint and it made it much better. Now I just need to dye the Vest and attach the plates.

Started adding to my gaunts. Plus I now have lighting for them. Next week will be filled with painting I thinks.

Pics explain it all. Just taped together for now.

Small bit of work done. Got some sewing done, to make sure the armours sits on the vest right. Started sewing velcro so I can add the thighs and shins. Plus I started building up the gauntlet.

Glued outside and soldered wires and LEDs.

Taped other layers on, just to test.

I said, let there be light, and lo and behold light sprung forth and it pleased the 405th.
