    Jul 4, 2003, 4:15 PM - My aluminum armor and other great stuff #1

    I just wanted to show some of my stuff (chest armor, vest fabric and ROTJ belt) now that I am finally back home. Thanks to Ego, SC, RS and BF for making this available for me. It will be a while before I update my progress since I have many things to do but here is a start.

    P.S. MLC, cant wait to get a hold of the new collar, back and shoulders to go with my chest armor.

    wow those looks sweet. It would be awesome to do a paint job where u tape off the aluminum and paint over it, very realistic looking.

    U gonna weather that belt?

    Your alu armour looks good, ive also got a set and spent hours last nite bending my back plate to fit just right

    The good thing about alu armour you can reshape by hand realy easy.

    I love your belt it looks sooooooo good, can you PM me any details as i need one.

    cheers

    Defiler, Nice collection you got there, buddy!

    Neil, I think that's a Sith Camaro Belt. (Mods/everyone, I did think about the names abbreviated to protect the innocent issue, but given the public way in which these were developed, I figured he wouldn't mind the advertising. Please edit if I'm out of order)

    Nice set of armor! I love it! Now, how do you plan to attach them to the vest?
