    May 19, 2004, 7:33 PM - Sintra Made Knee armor pics #1

    So a few years ago is when I started this project and I'm finally getting a push from Seeker to get it going so I'm posting some of my stuff I had done.

    Here are some pics of my Knee armor I made completely out of Sintra. My brother wanted to try to paint it so I had him have a shot at it but I'm going to do it again. Some work needs to be done with them but they are pretty close for just eye balling them with out a template.

    The nozzles are just a pvc joint connector cut off a bit to make it look pretty close. The item is pretty light and durable.

    No filler used just pure sintra sanded down. Took some time but sure is solid.

    I used balsa wood and bondo on mine. Yours look better, I think. Nicely done

    Color looks a little too orangey though, or could it be the flash...?

    Nice to know these sort of results are possible with sintra as I am hoping to start on my knees shortly. They look great.

    Very nice , they look like my firs set of syntra armor I made.
    Using putty truly helps achive the correct look to your taste.
    Good job.

    The paint I used was from Fleet Farm and I think it was Tractor Yellow paint. I'll find the paint and see who it is made from.
