    Before I massacre my chest armor, does anyone know wher I can get a template so I can position the openings correctly. What has everyone been using?

    Here are the measurements for the slots in the chest BB came up with based off the MoM suit:

    Top slot is 1/8" tall
    Bottom slot is 1/4" tall
    Slots are 1/4" apart.
    Slots are same length; 1 5/8" long

    I need to know where to cut them in relation the the armor chest plate. How far down and to the left and so on.

    Best thing you can do is get a straight on shot of the breast plate, blow it up to life size (will fit on an 8.5X11" sheet of paper and then lay it over the top of your piece of armor and mark it that way. Your armor probably won't match up exactly to the real deal but it should be fairly close. This is how I plan to position my slots.

    You also want to make sure that the opening you make matches up your led's:]

    You might also want to cut some strips of tape to size and stick them around till you're happy with the placement. Then just trace them, remove and cut.

    Good Luck!

    Can someone point me to measurements for the size/position of the slits in the chest plate and the right size LEDs to use? For now I plan on just leaving a piece of dark plexi behind the slits but eventually I'd like to try and get some real working LEDs going. I could swear I saw the dimensions posted somewhere before but I can't find it now...thanks!

    I have Shackman's LED set and believe me, they were worth every penny of what I spent. He does do great work. A must for any costume.

    I'm not sure if Shackman is making these anymore. However, he was more than willing to share his schematic drawings and photos of the unit with my brother and me. He was very helpful.

    Mafight, here are the dimensions for the left breast slits (as provided to me by Richie). TOP: 2" wide x 1/4" tall. BOTTOM: 2" wide x 3/8" tall. The gap between the top and the bottom slits is 3/8". These dimesions will accurately fit a set of ShackMan's lights which, by the way, Richie sells for $100.00 (no, I don't have a set, YET). Hope this helps.

Still admiring their inventiveness, but this is like the difference of launching a bottle rocket outta a coke can and working for NASA.

Now if we could just get some of the big names prop builders to turn our way and give us a little of their time and expertise we could help direct them in building armor that NO ONE could rival...

    Brak's has been kind enough (again) to host the schematics on his website (same link as the animation posted previously). Whether you plan to do this yourself, or want to buy one pre-assembled, PLEASE check out the thread on the RPF:

    pub2.ezboard.com/fswvstit...7574.topic

    I've tried to answer all questions ahead of time, including warnings for anyone wanting to attempt this on their own. I'll be monitoring that thread for the next day or two. So if you have any questions, please feel free to post there. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT="">

    And as I stated on the other board, IF you attempt this on your own, please let me know how it goes. I want to hear from others, whether or not my schematic was easily readable and if I forgot anything.

    Thanks,

    Rapier wit? This is the end of the twentieth century! I'm using a laser sighted under-and-over twin barrelled wit, with a 7.62 mm floating breech pulse rifle firing caseless one-liners on top, and a 40mm explosive gag launcher underneath. For backup I've got a 14mm pump shotgun firing flechette rounds with 10 barbed comments in each, which can also shoot sabot ego-piercing rounds. Of course when all else fails, there's always the trusty flamethrower which I've strapped to my pulse rifle with duct tape in the approved style.

    Yes, but do these MOM measurements jibe with what is needed for Shack's lights?

    According to Richie, no. The measurements I posted, while maybe not exactly accurate to the MotM suit (but close), they are the size needed to accomodate ShackMan's lights. Remember, this is per Richie. I don't know anybody else you can get these particular lights from other than him, or ShackMan himself. Being that both sets of measurements are only slightly different, the lights may line up with both.

    Are richies and Shackmans chest lights the correct sequence?

    Yes! Shackman created his light per our sequence. Check the link above for more info. you can even see a video of Shack's lights in action!


    As far as the measurements, I imagine both would work. Keep in mind that several of us believe that the last digit in the display is partially covered due to the slot being too small.

    Your best bet is to wait until you have the light then draw a template using a sheet of paper and use that to make your slots.

    Sweet, anyone know if he still offers these? and are RA's the correct sequence?
