    I was thinking,(sometimes I do ) and I think that if you don┤t find someone that make the chest armor, this could help.....
    cut the basic shape in a trash can armor(blue).............and cut the breast( ) part and leave it empty........cut in a half a foam ball, and insert it in the hole that you cut previusly................re-shape the foam with bondo or someting to make a better shape...MAKE IT A TICKET SKIND.........
    ........and here come the trick, melt the foam from the inside with acetone (just use a brush on the foam and it will vaporate)and you will have only the exterior part(the putty part)I hope you understand the idea, cause my english is very bad...............

    Thanks alot for the chest armor idea's but I think I have my ideas set, and thanks for the offer yanvag, but I have my own table

    If you looked above, I already talked about the armor.
    Quote Hydra said:
    Yeah, certainly. I'd go for taking a live cast of the actual person with plaster bandages, then re-enforce that mold and then go for a vac form.

    Another idea might be to look up some torso modeling Mannequins(the ones you see modeling lady's undergarments), build them over a little with some sort of heat resistant modeling material (perhaps air drying paper clay sanded down?) to make them look a little more rounded, thick, and give alowance for the material warn under the armor. I searched all over ebay myself and the prices average at around $40 I believe. Sadly for myself I couldn't seem to find any that would suit me.

    Anything to avoid the awkward "bubbles" that I believe would come forth from a freestyle attempt with flat sintra.
    Hope this helped.
    I have a sketch of her fighting off a wookie, I'll look into getting that colored this week.
    I hope to be starting this real soon, I have a friend coming over to help me take the casting and another friend who has found a pretty nice flightsuit pattern for me.

    Yay, finally some sort of progress and double-yay for a working camera.
    I'm installing the triggers and other goodies on these guys tomorrow, which are infact the smallest items in Lizean's arsenal.



    And here's a reference to the size next to my DT-57


    Also excited to start working on my Z-6 tomorrow, should be fun!

    For the Z-6: what could help in the construction is an old Super Soaker; the XXP 275, I think it was called. Anyway, it was held alot like the Trooper is holding the Z-6

    Oh neat! Mine's going to be quite a bit bigger (8 inches across), and I'm in the process of wiring an old RC car motor for the spinning, thanks alot for posting the tutorial too. Always cool to see how other people go about "the making of."

    Are you sure an RC motor going to be strong enough? If that doesn't work, cordless drills work pretty good.

    Progress? Yes and no. Not really anything too interesting anyways, got the sidearms finished and most of the armor templates finished.
    Here's a horrible picture, need a better camera (the black shirt doesn't help either.)



    Oh and something I've got in the works at the moment... I'll be giving away 6-9 of my custom mando designs in the next couple of weeks (after reading that quite a few people are stuck on design ideas, thought I might be able to help a little). I'll keep you guys posted.
