    My New Knee Armor - NEW !

    OkeeDokee, here we go again.

    I've had a lot of members ask me if I was ever going to make these. Well, since I was upgrading everyting else. I figured, what the hey.

    Maybe we'll call these the "MSK's"

    They were designed based upon the the size and proportion of DeanO's "Machined Aluminum " knee darts.

    They are a "One Piece" design, no assembly. Fiberglass, with a special "Flex" epoxy top coat to minimize the chance of cracking. Pretty tuff stuff.


    The pics below are trimmed very rough, nothing cleaned up.





    The two pics used for overlay ...




    The overlay .....




    Note that each of the dart housings are a slightly different shape. As with everything else "Fett", nothing symmetrical But after closer examination of the exhibit pics, I knew I had to do it. You only make molds once ...



















    And, what I think to be the best part ... the dart housings are semi hollow, to allow for the bolt in method of the knee darts ......








    One other point to note, the areas where the darts actually mount to the housings, are counter sunk, so the darts inset into the housing, for a more secure fit..

    Very nice, Chris. I'd wondered if you would tackle them, very well done

    I've got a sweet set from Lynn, but also have a set of Dean's darts that need something to be stuck too hmm...

    We'll see

    Great job, I especially like that they're one piece

    VILLAIN!!!! Is there no end to this torture? Another exihibit to add to the "who stole Fett's original outfit?" case. You know that thievery is unaccepted here at TDH don't you? Now give that stuff back to LFL and everything will be hunky-dory.

    You are a freaking animal, man.....a freaking animal. Fantastico!

    WOW !

    I always thought these were a component that people overlooked, I didn't think they were very important myself for a long time. But after I noticed the differences in details between the right and left, I figured I'd give a stab at it,

    These are the done deal tho, I won't be making any revs to them. I don't have that kind of time anymore it seems


    DeanO - You what ? Are you kiddin ? Awe, I understand completely tho, I've done the same thing to myself before, and not just once either You better get back in that shop and get crack'n, these baby's need mates !

    Thanks to everyone for their feedback and support !

    Re: My New Knee Armor - NEW !

    Hmmm, now what am I going to put in place of Dean O's darts when I rip them out of my current pair of knee armor so I can mount them in a pair of yours?

    Just when did you find time to paint my helmet?
