    That would be a little un-confortable for me in wearing something backwards. I was thinking of taking a black peace of cloth and velcroing it on the sides to stretch across to hide the zipper. But if there is someway to have one made then that will work for me. Thanks a bunch bh.

    A plan of objectives today for me. Today I am hopping to use some cereal box's to start before the cardboard comes into play to make the shape of the armor plates. I have done a complete sketch of the plates that will be wearing when the armor is finished. This sketch will also act as a reference for when the cardboard does come into play. I'll be using the cereal box's to act as the smooth surface for the top of the armor. So here it comes for today. Progress pics. Wooohooo!

    Actually NVM that; I actually found a good way and design to do an ab plate. It required some changing of the chest plates but it was accomplished.

    Alright a small update from what I put in yesterday. Today, after getting back from visiting my grandma's house I took out sheets of lined paper. The stuff that would be writing our essay's and math problems on during the time of school. LOL! Well I took those sheets and began making trace sheets that way I can trace them onto the cardboard. Now what I noticed was that the chest peaces did not fit right unless they held a neck peace like all mandalorians would hold.

    So with little information of the neck source I returned here and looked up on google some good angles of the neck peace and managed to through out a good design for the neck armor. By the looks of it; it will work better. Now the only other thing I really have to do is draw and cut out the neck, chest, ab, and cod peaces on the lined paper and it will be set to transfer over to the cardboard version.

    I am hopping to accomplish this at least by today because tomorrow I'll be gone and going up to PVCC to take my placement test and finish up with everything. Then if I have enough time when I get home I'll begin a little work on the cardboard version of the armor. So far everything is working out as I planned and hopefully everything with the armor will be done by september or so.

    Thank you all for the help btw. I really appretiate it!!!!

    Guess what guys it is time for an update. YEAP!!!! I finally made some progress. First and for most it did take me a while since the scissors that I am using kill my hands and really don't cut well with cardboard. But they came out well.

    First of all before I even began construction I did some fitting on the black suit that I will be wearing under my vest. I managed to pull it through in the right way and I am extremely happy that it turned out good.



    Now next comes the whole cardboard phase that took me a while.





    I must say I am impressed with the result even if cardboard is hard to cut through. Espically, counting that the cardboard is an old PS2 box I found in my closet. I figured why not make the shoulder bells out of it. That is what I came up with. Nothing to big but hey progress is progress right?

    I do have templates. I printed them off of the computer, darkened the lines to where I can see them, cut them out, fitted them to my form, and then traced the template peaces on the cardboard that was used to make the shoulder bells. Took some time but I did it.

    templates for the chest armor? the ab plate doesnt seem to fit the chest plates nor does the chest plates seem to follow the ones from WoF.

    just curious...

    Well; my lights where flickering in my bedroom when I took the photo so I had to partially turn the fan on which started to blow the peaces of paper away when I was trying to take the photo. But they look really good the way I see them. Hopefully, when the cardboard comes out I'll lay it on the floor and take a photo of it.

    I understand....

    With counting that I am starting into college courses I'll have to see if will be able to make it. I only have one class on Mondays, Wednedays, and Fridays, and on Teusdays and Thursdays I have three classes to attend. So depending on when the armor party starts and the time I get out all depends if I will be able to show up or not. But we will have to see.

    the chest plates and ab plate definately don't match up, you gotta change something... you should deifnatly take up bh on his offer, it'll be a good experience for you, your lucky to have someone close to your area to offer you help like bh... you've seen his adidas (sorry bh, thats just what it looks like to me ) metal armor, you gotta get together with him and others who can give you constructive criticism and helpful hands.

    If you guys say that the chest plates don't match up with the ab plate then I most likely believe you all. I was hopping to have something totally different with chest plates in the AZ area but if the chest areas don't match then all I will need to do is just change them around. Not to hard I got the templates on file and it is easy to print stuff out with the simple click of a button.

    it's just all the space between the hard parts, you can change the shape of the ab plate and add side plates.... I highlighted what is in NEED of change, its because of vulnerability, not looks.
    I made you a rough "sketch" in paint. You can try it if you like it.

    The shoulder bells and ab plate I printed off of the internet from a zip file that was posted on Mando Mercs. The chest plates I made on my own. It maybe a little more peaces of armor but I'll give it a try. Thanks a bunch adonian. If it does not work I'll go with the traditional I see flying around here and probally add my own little twist to it LOL!

    Well; I have decided to go traditional with the chest plates. Printed out the templates, darkened the lines, cut them out and then traced them on the cardboard and finally cut them out. Might I add looks good even if they are PS2 cardboard boxs. Here are the photos.











    Tomorrow I am shooting to getting the neck armor and the ab armor done. Not going to go with cod armor but it will still look good. And as for the gauntlets and boots something will soon be posted up of those as well. So stay looking my friends.
