    I will def be interested in a set once you get them going Cruzer.

    I have no doubt that they will finish up spot on like your other things.

    I'm in for a set. I think 9 to 10 inches would work. Can always shorten the shins if need be.

    Thanks for the input guys. So right now, I'm thinking that 10" would be idea for most people and still leave room for trimming at the bottom if necessary. Let me know if this doesn't sound good.

    Sounds good, and hopefully it will still look accurate when trimmed to the screen worn size.

    What would you say is the accurate screen size? Because if we've got Turo wearing 9.5" shins, then the 8.5" or 8.75" thought previously may have been way off. I want to make them as accurate as possible, but you're right, I don't want to compromise accuracy if trimmed.

    Well, according to the Westar measurements, I think the accurate size would be 9". Plus, we have this picture to go off of: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showp...4&postcount=51

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    My vote is for Screen Used size.
    Looking at Turos scaled pics, and using the westar as a measure, that looks to be slightly under 9.5".
    Thats the length I'd want them.

    And Turo, what up with that pic: Jango and Boba MIXED!!! You have Boba and Jango pouches, Boba Vest, and a Boba sidearm!!
    LOL.

    With an architect's scale ruler like the one Darth Steven used and a picture of it from the matching perspective as his picture of the shin, we could probably figure out the exact measurements. Of course, if he could just tell us what he measured that'd be even better.

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Well, I'm heading to the Sci-Fire shop today to specifically fabricate Jango shins, and then mold the shin armor along with my already fabricated boot armor. If I can, I'll squeeze in some thigh armor, but we'll just have to wait and see. I'll shoot some progress pics later tonight of what we were able to come up with.

    Sweet! I need shins really bad. I was about to make my own because I wasn't sure if you were going to finish yours.

    I didn't do anything to it...for some reason that link just doesn't work. Anyway, I replaced the image with a new link to it just now.

    Cool thanks. I have some personal notes that says to save the images that Fox posted in Cruzer's shin armor thread.

    Thank you. Images saved.

    I just like to keep things you know.

    Awesome news. I can't wait to see the shins. I am sure they will look great.

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Here's how the shins currently look. The center channel is exactly 9.5" long, so the entire shin is about 10" from top to bottom. I could probably stand to concave the bottom sides (on the shorter sides) a tad, however, I'd rather they err on the wide side in order to accomodate wider or larger shins/calves, and so they don't look too tight on flightsuit legs.

    Let me know of any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    The center channel should be slightly concave, if you catch what I mean. Like it should be "bowing" inward if that makes any sense. I also think the center channel is a little too wide at the top, making it taper a little too much.

    +1, and are you still planning on doing the boot and thigh armor at the same time?

    Re: Cruzer Jango leg armor project--revisited

    Concave added, and bottoms of the outsides pulled in a tad.
    Yesterday at the shop, we actually AutoCad'd the center channel at 9.5" and the front view of the entire shin from one of the Paris ref. pics, and printed out templates that were used to cut out the channels. We then did some overlay comparisons, and the center channel was pretty close. The only areas that were off a little where the sides, but after comparing side shots decided it might have been due to camara angle. I could trim off a little from the sides if people thought they were too wide...but once it's gone, it's gone!
