    Thanks guys!!! I'm sorry i haven't posted any updates on this in a while, but I kinda burned out on it and am taking a bit of a break to recharge the batteries.

    I'll hopefully have updates on saturday night/sunday morning for this (even if it is only one or two plates. )

    no vod, that's my secret; have lots of projects so that when you get burned out on doing one, you move to another one, then when that one gets frusterating, you move again, and on it goes.

    Just note that this DOES NOT work well when your boss gives you a project deadline.

    Alright, so I'm working on the left knee (yeah, kinda a random place to start...) and this is what I have come up with:




    I am going to make the center plate first using 1mm sintra, then plate it with 1mm sintra to get the grooves that are in it. Then if you notice, the sides of the knee plate are some sort of semicircular slide for the knee plat to rotate on.



    Those are attached around the back of the leg by a strap. I am going to use an elastic strap to hold it on to my leg, then a hinged plate over the top of that.



    /\ The elastic will sit under this plate.

    So, that is my start. I will hopefully have pics for you soon.

    My vod Jonathan has been drooling over your armor and is determined already that his next Mando (or his point 2 version of the current one) will be largely influenced by this set of heavy armor.

    Kandosii ner vod!

    Now I am interested. When I saw someone doning these pictures for their Roleplay character on myspace I grew interested in the armor. But I also thought it looked nothing like mandalorian armor but then again looks can be decieving. My interest went into the helmet and how it looked but I am not one that is a good sculpter. But truly I can't wait to see what you come up with for this project. I can barley contain my excitment level LOL!
