shin guards, by Franklin can be used for gauntlets. or you can print the templates found on here and resin and fiberglass them.
almost done with vest. Still messing with patterns for the ballistic padding. i think i know what im gonna fix, but the walmart i got the duckcloth at is out of stock of that color, so must wait.
so here it is with several flash settings.
this gives it about a 1/4" or less of raised surface to see.
I'm no good with that sort of stuff of fiberglasing. I may just go with some shin guards and use them as gauntlets. Probally a good old black pair to go with my armor that way I dont have much painting to go through. Thanks a bunch vod.
Nice progress btw!!!
Looks great ner vod!
Anymore updates bh?
jax, the build is coming along nicely. not a big fan of lesther for a material for modern era plates. but that aside, youve done an awesome job with the paint and weather, as always, and it looks great! can hardly tell it's leather at all.
best thing is, you get that great leather smell off the plates!
Yeah I know....I'm still working through the bugs which is a good thing LOL!
I'm still going with high tech stuff for arm gear. you rally cant tell its leather, and it wasnt the point to be able to tell. just playing with a new way to make plates.
I'm still playin with chop shop:
Looks awesome! Good vest design.
whoa! were'd you get that pic? its from like 2003......
true. but Christ, a lightsaber? what was i thinking??
Well you did collect that bounty on the Jedi didn't you
don't remember. was a long time ago. i know i had it for a reason.
Attending a large mando party next weekend. will post updates.
Thats waht the saber I'm puttin on my black/purple setup is for. Just need more trophies to go along with it... I found some faux fur in white, was kinda thinking of a wampa pelt.
You guys and your trophies....don't worry I am moving in the same thing. I am going to have a few trophies for my mando if you have not yet noticed.....
no trophies here. no room.
Looks good, I like it with the green flightsuit. I'd never guess those were leather plates if I hadnt seen the WIP. Actually, the rivets don't look bad adds some intersting details to the armor. What color are the gaunts going to be?
Like the first belt, and as A'den said, the rivets look nice, a good detail.
I hope my quality will improve and be half as good as your work.
i will hide the rivets in cleaver weathering, i hope. gaunts and shoulders, no clue yet...
Jax it looks great so far dude, like u said the rivets are the only thing I see that needs work. I love that buy'ce, the colors are perfect for the whole suit, it really makes me think of a mando who'd specialize in desert operations like those found on Tatooine, which, I believe has something to do with your Avatar... right? lol It looks great can't wait to see the finished product.
updates for me....
first shados helmet mods
and the 12 year old Gabbie!
