That neck piece itself is metal but my back plate is fiberglass i wanted to see some pictures of fellow fetts and how they attached there armor together.
If they overlap use Industrial strength velcro. But even if they dont the velcro can still hold them together.
If you use screws for the shoulder studs just make it as short as possible so the 2 halves of the velcro still meet.
any pics? it just seems that when i put them together its like they just dont match up
If you are not looking for totally screen accurate in terms of attachment method, but only in the finished look, this is the easiest way to do it (and what I did for my ESB Fett this time around):
Attach the collar studs only to the collar -- going ahead and attaching the cape and leaving it on the collar armor all the time -- and then mount to the backplate with Velcro. Looks exactly the same, but means I no longer need assistance screwing in the studs every time I suit up.
sooo many options....guess i should decide on one of these before i start..thanks for the help.
I use the accurate "bolt myself in" method. Spending a few extra minutes getting suited up doesn't seem like a big deal.
Thanks that pic is a big help.... i was also wondering about the placement of knee armor...is it righ above the knee, on the knee, or below the knee ?
i have aluminum shoulder studs with a threaded hole on the bottom. i drilled matching holes in the neck and back plate and run a screw up through them that the stud screws on to.
seeker made a plate to hold his bolts that go through looks like a very good idea http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/s...uild-up-43497/
