Today the kneearmor from starfortress arrived and as I remember some discussions about the itmes of starfortress in this forum, I though I might post some pics.
At first I have to mention that the current guy handling starfortress Anton is very kind and helpful. So it was really a pleasure doing business with him, as there were some discussions about former problems with sf too.
These fibreglass kneepads are quiet accurate (only noticed two missing graved lines) in shape. Also the kneedarts (mine are "only" the basic version) are very fine worked out plastic pieces, which can be ordered as aluminium pieces as deluxe version.
The elastic strap is already build in and is strong (but which I think I will cut and add snap fastener, so it can be redirected into the suit and closed there).
They even integrated a piece of velcro.
The paintjob, though being silver instead of chrom, is very well and smooth done too.
The one and only flaw is, that my kneepads are a little bit too tight (admfrancis experienced it too with his sf kneeparts).
Does anybody know how to bend fibreglass a little without risking to break it?
