    Bobamaker armor inquiry

    I have a question, does anyone have any pictures of the NEW armor sculpt from Bobamaker? I havn't really seen it, besides the picture on the website, but it's at an angle. Anyone have a picture of the armor from a front view? Thank.

    I have the new style BM armor on order. I can take pics of it, when it gets here. However, I don't know how long that will be.

    I know, I said that I have SEEN the pictures on the website, but it is at a crummy angle. And I was wondering if anyone had a shot of it from the FRONT.

    ow my... I got BM knees and a bucket and those were fantastique... and this armor... I WILL be getting that. look at the curve in it!! that is just what I've been wanting all along, something that curves both horizontal and vertical, something you can never achieve with PVC sheets or Sintra because of the same problem you encounter when trying to fold an A4sheet of paper around a football...

    imo... this is excellent stuff!!

    hmm.. don't expect that to happen anytime soon.

    Still a few steps away from even beginning to upgrade Boba (but I will).

    But I'll probably want those armor pieces for my custom aswell.

    Hmm. . . perhaps you'll call me crazy for suggesting this: try emailing B-M and asking him to send you a picture! *gasp*
    I had asked him for some additional pics of his flightsuit before I placed an order, and he was very helpful.

    Hmmm. . . I would like to see a pic of the middle 3 mm of the strip between the 2 LED cutouts.
    Or is that too specific?

    My Bobamaker armor should be coming within the next couple of weeks! Woo hoo!

    Re: Bobamaker armor inquiry

    Here is a link to pics I recently posted of my bobamaker stuff. I got this from him last week, and I am lovin' it!
    All soft pieces (except for the scalps, belts and cape) are from DAZ.
    All body armor is also from Daz. (except for the gauntlets and helmet.)
    Hope this helps!

    Let me just ask you 1 thing... Is not the jumpsuit too loud blue ??? (I mean, if I´m not wrong it should be a little less loud... I little softer) ???

    Is just a doubd/thought.

    Re: Bobamaker armor inquiry

    I think you are correct. I do have some pics where the suit looks close to this, but most pics it looks lighter, especially screen shots. I'm thinkin' about fading it a bit.
    Anyone have any suggestions or input reguarding the true tint of blue?

    i'm no esb expert, but at a casual glance it looks too blue. maybe wash it a couple of times to see if the dye fades out?

    Re: Bobamaker armor inquiry

    Here are pics of my Bobamaker armor:

    I have the TK-409 chest lights and they do not line up with the cutout. I will need to do some work there. If you order a set, you may want them filled in and you can out out your own chest light window.

    The edges are 3/16" thick and the main material appears to be 1/8" or slighty thicker.

    The armor has a VERY solid feel and yet is light. The chest armor hugs my chest great.

    Overall, I am VERY pleased!
