So after 2 jears of my not-so-complete Deathwatch-Armor out of PVC plates...
I'm done with it! Not Done with the costume but I just have it enough!
The plastic plates and artificial Leather has been pointed out as an inferior Material.
First i thought i just swap the Plasticplates with Aluminum.... but then 'why only the plates? i can do all new Softparts aswell ^^
It is a fresh project
So Today i finally got all the 108 Metalparts needed together.
Some of them are already bended or nearly complete.
Like the Belt (Comparisation between new and old one)
the old one was PVC plates glued on velco on a faux-leatherbelt (filled with some rubbermattes to come to the thickness)
the new Belt is 4mm thick Leather with an elastic strap and 33 little plates (each plate consist out of a frontplate and a backplate with a solid loop) threaded on the strap.
