    here are some more parts.

    i designed the tank so the greeb should just fit in the slot made for it.


    got the shins looking a little better.


    here is the boot armor.


    here the back plate that the tank will sit in.


    forearm piece.

    here are the belt buckles for the boot armor i made. the parts are made from a scrap piece of roof flashing. i made the greebs to be glued on the flashing.



    here is the belt i just pulled. much cleaner than the first pull. i am experimenting alittle to try to get grey bars with a black background, that way we don't have to paint the rubber. you can see in the smaller belt where i added more tint to the rubber. the back of the belt is getting darker compared to the bars on the belt. i think it is possible to get the right look on the belts by playing with the tints added to the rubber. fill in the bars with the gray tinted rubber , then come right on top of it with black tinted rubber.

    well , the vac table is up and running. FINALLY!!!! after burning up some plastic and tweeking the table i was able to pull the first test pieces.

    everything is going pretty smooth now. i just have to do some work on the armor plugs, smooth things out here and there.

    but overall the project is coming together. i ma going with .090 becuse the 125 stuff is not giving me the detail i want.

    here is the boot armor trimed and taped together to get idea of what they will look like. these will be seamless. slide the shin armor on then pull your boots on, then slide the armor down over the boots.

    the toe armor will be tricky. because it will have to move some to walk. i am going to cut off the bottom buckle on the boots.

    sorry about the pics , they are taken from a mirror.

    Looking great! It appears your test pulls are wavy, with regard to the rear half of the calve armor. A little fine tuning and your final pulls are going to be cleaner and tighter.

    Ya know, seeing as you've done the leg armor, maybe a future project should be the Galactic Marine?

    Did I mention that the leg armor is awesome?!! LOL!
  12. May 20, 2009, 12:30 AM - Re: the new MB kashyyyk scout trooper build thread #87

    I want to incorporate those into my snow commander rebuild. I am trying to get more Galactic Marine components in play this time.

    Oh, who is the manufacturer of the boots?

    thanks for the comments guys.

    the boots are gbx's. i am working on the wavyness now. i am making molds of most of my armor to make hydrocal copies to use on the vactable. so that should take care of some of the wavyness.

    here is the pic of the first full kit pulled. i have to fine tune the chest and back plate so i get pulls that go all the way to the platen. i am using .125 hips and i am going to use .090 for the final pulls.

    here is the mock up of the armor on. fits pretty good. putting the tank throught the backplate is the most ricky part of this kit. t6he armor is just taped together. ignore the pistol sticking out of my paints..........S&W 40 cal.
