It's looking pretty good there, C_K. I think that it'll look a lot better finished and with some Mandos in it. One thing I might suggest though, is to maybe change the hull to a primer gray to better get a Mando look- most Mando jumpsuits are grey. Just a suggestion.

A primer gray and a olive (miliary) green would be hot.

I love the lightsaber Kill marks, those are the best. ;D I say paint it up to look like your pilot. Thats what I would do anyway. I dont know if Id keep the Mando helmet on the other side, I think another skull would look better. I can't wait to see what you do with it when youre done. I got the last one of these at my local Target for 6.00. I too will be following In Fritzkreigs footsteps. I am really pushing to make a rescue transport with mine. Unfortunately I just havent had the time to customise lately.

Thanks guys. I think I will change the ship to gray.  Although the white might be good once it's all battledamaged up and dullcoated.  I got some more work done on it tonight including  practically finishing the green parts.

Oh and Ennis, the reason I put the helmet on that one wing instead of another skull was because I got lazy, lol.

I like the color scheme, although I would probably give it a darker shade of grey and maybe another lighter, contrasting color (I'm thinking something like Jango's Slave 1, but obviously with different colors). 
I really like the "Bantha" Skull (or whatever it's called), it looks very sharp. 
I don't think I would put a Mando helmet on the wing though.  Maybe Boba Fett's "Wheat" symbol or something like that. 

The writing on the side and the lightsaber "kill" marks look awesome, I would leave them as is  ;D

Put together my mandalorain scout, but not even done priming him yet. Finished a Clone Wars Jedi. But he's not dullcoated yet. And I don't have pics of him yet. Did alot of work on the mando ship but it too, is not finished yet.

The mandorlian skull emblem is awesome.  Best part of the ship in my opinion.

Well at least the wips box thingie is getting smaller. I'm finishing this silly ship soon and then I'm going to hit that WIP box hard and get it all cleared out ;) It'll be easy with summer here next Friday.

Your assault craft looks pretty good, just needs a cleaned up paint job and of course the light sabers and text done like every one else said.

Great job on the skull.  That is expert paint apps right there.

Still working on the ship little by little. I finished a camo scout mandalorian today which I think turned out really well. And I got pics of the jedi i made a while back.

I like the Mando Scout's camo armor, it looks like it took a while to do, but it came out very well.  The parts choice is very well done, I really like the Djas Puhr legs for the Mando.

The Djas Puhr (I forget the laien species name) looks cool too, I still need to make one of these Battle-armor Jedis  :-\/  The only thing that I would do to him would be to paint his outer tunic a different color, just to add a bit more color to the figure.  Maybe a dark orange similar to his armor markings.

Hehe I seem to recognise the recipe of your Mando Scout from somewhere :) Very nice, but the cammo is a bit to earthly for my tast. I love what yuo did with the jedi dude. He rocks!

Yep I looked carefully at your mando scout and then added some stuff of my own to the recipe. It was great inspritation!
