Flak Vest Designs?

Does anybody know where I could find the blueprints to make my own flak vest?


I still have Ronin's plans, if you want them, I'll e-mail them. e-mail me at GCNgamer128@aol.com and title the subject, "Flak Vest," and I will send them to you.

The flak vest has had minor alterations, i.e. (sleeves, jet pack harness holes)

Hi

I am just putting the finishing touches to my flak vest, and still have the templates i used at home. Tonight i will CAD these up and pdf them to post.

they are designed for a person 5'8" of medium build.

Thanks Ronin! My name is Andy, and I've been on the dented helmet for a while just as someone who comes and looks at junk, I did finally sign up though. I'm a pretty skinny person, but I'm also 5'8". Just out of
curiosity, which version of CAD do you have? I'm an architect so I use CAD all of the time, or too much... I run 2006, the new version is quite nice! Thanks again!

Hey, that would be amazing mate, I would love to get those "pattern" in cad as well ;) the version you prefer :p.

BTW, GCNgamer128, I see you are an architect :D... Me too !!! and I also use the Cad 2006 (ADT 2006), really great, ;), would be a pleasure to talk to you about architecture, and those stuff ;).

Architects :puke :puke :puke

we all know Civil Engineers are the only sensible ones :lol: :lol:

sorry - bit of friendly banter

I will Cad up the bits tonight and then compliment them with pics of the finished article so you can see what it all looks like in the flesh.

Be warned though, my flak vest is constructed from one piece of material (A0 size at least thinking about it). Well its really its two identical pieces back to back with padding in between . You will see from the plans.

I guess you could divide it up once you have the plans.

I will Cad the plans and also PDF them.

Right now I have to design a small community with a school! Bleh! haha. I'm playing the supervisor right now with a few others... I call it being "supervisor" to my superiors, but in reality it's called being lazy. I'll have a few houses done by tomorrow though.
