The evolution of the design. From first experimenting with the Mando Maker website to the final built design. A full length stripe turned into shorter ones on the shoulders and shins. Kill stripes moved from the chest to the gauntlet. Cape and kama were added, visor went from black to ruby red. Some small details were changed, but it stayed true to the original design.
The armor is current submitted for approval with the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club.

RUUG'LA CARUD: THE MANDALORIAN PROJECT
Suit and Gear
gauntlets are 18 gauge steel, 5 led lights, custom multi-missiles, added heat sinks, liquid filled fuel line, details and sculpted "oya" and "kyr'am ra kote" in mando'a. larger blasters are resculpted nerf blasters, DE-10 is 3d printed, all with added glass scope lenses and wraps. flash grenades were made from russian surplus field markers. gaderffii is 3d printed reinforced with wood and metal, wrapped in leather and fabric. the bes'bev was made from pvc pipe.
This project began around Thanksgiving of 2019. The helmet and core armor were purchased from three different sellers. The helmet and front torso armor was 3d printed, the shins and boot armor is 6mm sintra, the backplate and knee armor is vacuformed abs. the gauntlets are steel.
All pieces were modified and customized with sculpted details (jaig eyes, writing, etc...), added lights (led and lcd display), pneumatic fittings, a rebreather, new grappling hook and more. The majority of the belt pouches and ammo bag are Eastern Bloc Military Surplus, with the exception of the front speaker pouch, which is French WW2. Flash grenades were built from Soviet Military Field Markers.
A custom chest box was built with a stereo hearing device fed into headphones in the helmet. Voice amplifier in the belt pouch feeds from a wireless mic in the helmet. there is also a mounted pair of prescription glasses inside the helmet. Those three make it safer and easier to see, hear and be heard while fully kitted up.
