    Dwedd's fiberglass armor - Pics fixed

    I've gotten several requests for pics of the fiberglass Jango armor I run. I never really take pics of stuff before sending it off to new homes, until now. I recently finished a set of armor for a member here, and decided to snap a few digi-pics of it. Some of these pieces are being seen publicly, for the first time, since I JUST finished reworking them to be more accurate.

    Here's an overall shot of it.


    Here's just the upper armor.

    Here's the lower. The cod has been recently reworked for better shape, and the thighs, for better compound curve.

    Here's a closer shot of the cod.

    A close-up of the shoulder, to show the compound curve and trim line.


    All the pieces are raw pulls, straight from the molds. Trimming, and assembly will be done by the new owner.

    Well then, for all that have asked for pics in the past, here ya go. Thanks for looking.
    Pm if you'd like further details.


    Edited to fix missing pics

    Nice work, Dwedd. I want to save up and buy a set if you're doing that. I'll shoot you a pm. I already have your helmet; might as well be a Dwedd Jango.

    I'd like to clarify something here. "thick" is diferent to different people. I run all my stuff in one layer of two oz. matt, behind a 25 - 30 mil layer of gelcoat. what that means is that the parts end up being aprox. 1/8" thick. They're thick enough to be strong, yet thin enough to be light.

    Arturo has yet to get me a set of his knee armor. Maybe I should get a set of yours. That is, if you're making them wider than your original ones were.

    I made one that's about 3/8" wider than the original, for the huskier Fetts, but I havn't molded it yet.

    new pm sent!

    Something just occured to me. Those knees look like the upside down F is on both sides. Did you put two lefts or rights in the pic or do you really have upside down F's on both sides?

    Re: Dwedd\'s fiberglass armor - Pics fixed

    The "F" is on both sides. The ledges for the knee darts get attached over the outside "F" on each knee, basicly covering it.
