Getting closer…

Glued on the leg greeblies:



Started polishing the side seams with Novus 3, by hand.  Going well, but it’s tough work.




I think I’m going to get a headlight polish kit with a drill attachment.  Gonna need it for the shoulders for sure.

Been working on the shoulders.  Wow it’s been frustrating.  ABS paste, sand, and repeat.  I’m still not 100% happy, but I think I’m going to call them good enough and move on to polishing.

Notes:
1. Just going for Level 1.
2. Options for both ESB & ROTJ appearance.
3. Mustache isn't mine. Bought it years ago for a cosplay shoot I was doing with a woman friend. Thought why not use it here.
4. Costume only cost me less than $100. I was working on a Tie Pilot build and saw a good deal on a used grey suit.
5. Didn't notice a cylinder was in the wrong spot until afterwards.

Hello again!
I know I haven't been on the forums in quite awhile, but I need some help with my mando's chest plates.
So I am a woman and I don't have a flat chest, but I'm trying to stay as close to the actual shape of my mando's chest plates as possible.
Essentially I'd like to know if the shape of my plates as they are now would be approvable? I know the paint/primer job on them right now is messy looking and I'm still working on that–but I need to know if I can actually use these plates or if I need to invest in more pvc?
Always appreciate the support and feedback!

Did some very rough sanding on the ABS paste.

Results look good on the ab side seams:



I think those are good to go for finish sanding and polishing.

The shoulder seams are going to need more work due to the overlap:



So more rough sanding and then probably another coat of ABS paste

Painted the arm and leg greeblies:



Then attached the clips to the forearms:



And the biceps:



I think I trimmed too much return edge from the inner chest shoulder:



Since I was worried about having enough space for the shoulder plate support tabs and strapping slots, I glued some little bits to both sides to fill the gap.  Then trimmed and sanded:



Then I sanded the lip caused by the overlap on the shoulders, to prep for ABS paste:



Decided to tackle the ab seams first, so I taped off the area to prevent any spread and applied to the left side:



I used a toothpick, which I thought would help get it into the seam, but turned out to make a messier application:



So on the right side I used a popsicle stick, which was much easier to work with:



Next, I applied the ABS paste to both shoulders:



I’ll let this dry overnight and then try some sanding tomorrow.

Well, I know I'm late to this post, but I'm a new member to the forum. This is absolutely INCREDIBLE.

Time to bite the bullet and glue the inner chest and back:





Started cuttings for a batch of ABS paste:
