    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    how do I do that?

    As for the A&P test, got a 'c' not my best, but hay I passed

    I see that you saw kyr'am is back (I went scouting for him {sent a PM})

    Check out the work on the new bucket and my Revan

    I'm gonna leave the opening between the mandable, cheek bone and cheek for air. Since this one is gonna be my glossy white one, I think it'll look okay (I hope )

    Oh yeah, that should be fine. Just be sure to stay short. No one will notice...

    Oh I'm short, I'm only 5'11"

    I plan on putting screen or something to cover it, but the opening is only like 1 or 2 cm by 5 or 6 cm.

    LoL, I'm kinda almost as tall as you. Not really, but the screen is a good idea. Ought to keep bugs out.

    Okay a couple of pics... If anyone wants to play with these and post pics, please do.

    I'm not too sure about the 'nose guard' in the visor.

    oops:

    what ever you do, dont laugh

    I'm still waiting to get back to work (job) then I will do more on the bucket and finaly start the soft parts... I found the same fabric that Cod'ika used for his flak vest, in WHITE and Black so I can make BOTH, and I can order some BDU pants for 'em and be done with 2 customes.

    I was thinking of using some glow in the dark powder in clear and put it on the white armor.

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    Update on job...

    WOW first day on the floor, 4 guys got into a brawl, what a way to start a new job

    Anyway update on the Mando front... I just ordered 2 flak vests from ladeysewforus' husband Mark, DarthCarcinus. He has a budget vest which looks great, so when I get 'em I'll be armored YEAH!!

    So, now I have 1 white girth belt, 1/2 a white bucket, white chest armor, (Soon) a white vest, now I just gotta finish the bucket, get a cape or something to cover the back, make the leg and arm armor and be done.

    wow that's still a lot of work, BUT I GOT VEST'S YEAH BOY!

    I guess you can tell I'm happy

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    Small update, I've decided against the nose guard, I will add the flair/sweep around the bottom soon enough, but I am taking my time with this one since I didn't get my black/purple one as smooth as I need this one to be.

    I think the wider visor will be nice. I got one of those flexable 11x14 picture frames from walmart, I hope to mirror tint it.
    I did a little more work, but not enough to take a pic.

    well, I just got my vests (White and Black) from Ladysewforus' Husband, and the quality is kick butt.

    But I'm out the door right now for work, so I don't have time to post, but I will do my best to post tomorrow.

    Okay here's the vests, I just laid the armor on top, haven't attached them yet. I may need to make larger armor pieces though I'll find out when I get the time to duct tape them on for a fitting ;LOL

    Re: 2nd set of trash can armor

    yup... I still plan on trying to make my own vests like the one you made, I like that fabric.

    With these I'm afraid to weather them, they look too good.
