    Armor assembling

    Well, same way that Seeker with the visor installation thread... Let's see how you all assemble the armor (armor to vest, knees, shoulders, backplate, cod piece, but piece ).

    Show pics, explain how you do it .

    Let's make a nice thread with all the info out there.

    Re: Armor assembling

    Hei! This must be a good reference post. I hope that the people in this forum post his metods! So, post your metod

    First, I like to post the bobamaker's method (If he wants to remove it from this post, please say it to me), I think It's the best method to attach the armor. Is the real deal! No, bobamaker?:

    I used steel eyelets, as can be seen on the ILM props. i bought the eyelets from a 'Hobbycraft' store, they are very easy to attach, everything is included in the pack except a hammer.

    You can trace around your own armour onto cardboard for a template, but make sure that you keep the same curvature or the holes in your jacket won't line up with the bolts on your armour when finished.

    Just a note: If you wish to troop in your armour you will need to cut off any excess bolt when finished (a dremel will do the job), get the bolt as short as possible so it won't dig into you.
