    here is the knee straps. the rubber i used is way to soft for this type of use so i have to buy a harder urathane rubber. no big deal.

    Re: my kashyyyk trooper build......progress

    hey man - nice progress btw :P

    I assume u had a look at pghfett's FG armour thread in the kashyyyk trooper armour section of BSN mate - in fact just saw u browsing the exact same thread over on BSN matey

    my comments are spawned from the feedback from that armour compared to ref piccies mostly.

    bells - looks good; looks like u captured the nice complex curves

    bicep - outer surface has a detailing that includes 2 rectangular blocks. also, it may be the piccies not catching it right; but the back part appears a litle off - compare to these WIPs http://forum.bikerscout.net/index.ph...pic=307&st=100

    knees - look good.

    soz abt crits Tom; but I got me a personal vested interest in how this armour turns out

    good luck!

    Re: my kashyyyk trooper build......progress

    your right i have been studying pghfett's build like the bible because of lack of reference photos.
    on the bicep piece ,i molded a blank one for the 2 boxes and band. an so when i made the mold for it ,i would have a exact sized copy to sculpt the one with the rectangles with the bottom and top curved shape.

    thanks for the reply. any critique to get this armor as accurate as possble is what i need.

    Re: my kashyyyk trooper build......progress

    i am in the process of resculpting the helmet because i pulled a prototype casting of it and it was bad out of wack. i felt it was better to resculpt than to try to fix first casting.

    when i get the prototype casting from this version i will post a comparision shot to show what i am talking about.

    it seems i am molding everything twice, the prototype then the master copy. alot of work but it makes for better parts. then realize something is wrong and do it again. HAHAHAHA

    here is the rough version of the right bicep piece.

    dunno about you, but i find that revising a resin copy is a LOT easier.

    for my aotc clone helmet, i started with my original hasbro mod, made a cast, then worked on that. the resin is WAY easier to sand/shape than the hdpe/bondo/expoxy monstrosity that is the original.
