    Re: Backplate

    I've made a couple of back plates using the WOF templates using sintra and you have to have a heat gun or another way to really heat it up to get the right shape on the sides..boiling it and holding it above the boiling water to catch the heat coming off of it will make shaping it very difficult but it can done with a lot of re-heating...unless you have a very big pot

    I guess we need to know what you mean that your backplate didn't work? You trace it, and cut it out. You then have to heat and bend to shape. That is really the hradest part. Hope this helps

    It might well be. I got Alans templates a while back and just cut the sucker out. I still have the slots to cut out but am waiting till i am ready to mount the JP.

    Yeah, the boba backplate has a tab that comes up behind the neck. But you said you were getting another one right?

    I understand now

    I cut the tab off and trimmed mine further into the neck area, it pushed against my neck too much once attached to the collar plate. I will be getting another set soon, just waiting to see if a locally sourced set will become available first.

    well i heard that a certain bounty hunter might be upgrading his armour at points next year and thought i'd jump in first

    It will be nice to have proper stuff that fits correctly one day.
