    Cool man! Well the shape of the armor looks solid. I don't really have much else to say about the armor until more pics surface! Keep it up!

    For the ROTJ Hero armor don't forget all the dents, even the one on the right chest plate which is often missing on almost all the fan made ROTJ suits.

    The DaG (Dressing a Galaxy) suit is (almost) the same with the MoM (Magic of Myth) and SWtE (Star Wars the Exibition) suits. The ROTJ Hero jetpack is on the AoSW (Art of Star Wars) and C-IV (Celebration IV) exibit suit.

    That's funny Raf, I put that dent in my first ESB armor back when I was a newb and didn't understand proper reference photos.

    As for the plates, they seem a bit flat to me. I'd have to see them on a vest to be sure but make sure that they fit the curvature of your body properly and don't stick out too much on the sides, especially the ab plate. Shoulders seem to have a good curve though keep it up

    Re: work in progress so far

    looking good Jake..
    The back plate and collar plates (where they meet at shoulders) seem like they need a little 'fairing' in to each other.
    Any chance you can get a pic with the vest and armour on you? would give a better indication of plate size to your frame?
    But I like the depth you've done to the plates.

    Didn't know you were a scummer... (jk)

    Armour's looking good!

    Re: work in progress so far

    Much better curve to the armor compared to your initial post! I like the direction it's heading in.

    You may want to look to the alignment of the chest and diamond piece (they seem to be a bit lopsided) and I would still like to see the dents in that armor!

    But, all and all, it's shaping up extremely well! Pretty soon you'll be ready to paint it up!

    Re: work in progress so far

    Hey Jake, got a better view with the armour on ya! I 'think' that the plates are a little on the large side? (see attached pic, excuse size of image) I understand that your a tall guy but they seem a little on the large side when compared to the pics. (just my 2 pence).



    Maybe.. and it is a maybe that when you've added the contours to them that they'll 'appear' smaller?
    Don't get me wrong I think they look great so far but could be allot better with a little work.

    p.s. Paint sprayer?? hmmmm will send ya a PM.

    Re: work in progress so far

    I think the armor is OK, but the vest seems small on you, this is why you don't have enough room to fit the armor plates properly. The vest should be longer in lenght and maybe wider on the shoulders, especially that the shoulder area doesn't look good. Did you buy the vest already made or it was made to your measurements?

    I was thinking the armor looks a bit large on you as well, but like rafal said it might be that the vest is a little too small. Or maybe a combination of both.
