Title: NEO crusader doubts
Post by: jorey79 on May 19, 2017, 11:23 AM
Hi, I would like to make a "neo-crusader" suit but I have some doubts that I hope someone can help me solve. The first one is about the color, I would like to make the "soft part" in dark blue and the armor in a "lighter blue".  The next doubt is about the helmet I would like to know if it is necessarilly that the helmet be a single piece or I can make it in two pieces the mask and helmet separately.

thanks for your help


hola, me gustaria hacer un traje de "neo crusader" pero tengo algunas dudas que espero me puedan ayudar a resolver.  Lo primero es sobre el color, me gustaria hacer la "soft part" de azul oscuro y la armadura azul mas claro.  Sobre el casco quisiera saber si necesariamente debe ser una sola pieza o puedo hacerla dividida la mascara y el casco por separado.

gracias por su ayuda

Hey Jorey, check out Makris Brik's kit HERE (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=133699.0) for Neo Crusader concepts.  Might help you a little bit with questions and then maybe a couple of PMs with him to help get you started.

The plates and the flight suit need to be the same color as per the CRLs and little bit of different is going to happen just the nature of paint vs fabric. So one can be a bit lighter than the other but they the difference cannot be huge.

As for the helmet- the mask and the dome are required to be hard pieces and the cowl needs to be firm. The mask and helmet really more than likely need to be attached because you want a smooth dome to mask line.

Outstanding work my friend! My only suggestions are that you might need to add a small curve to the hand plates, cod plate and perhaps the chest plate depending on how they sit on your body. All together very good progress :)

Below I show you the progress of this week, the gauntlets, shoulders, thighs and the back plate were painted

gauntlets with a small color design

hello to all continuing with my armor I show you the first advance of my helmet, it should be noted that it is a Pepakura helmet these days will proceed to harden it and thus begin to give the final touches.

I await your comments, thanks

Definitely needs some cleanup work when you fiberglass and bondo it, but excellent start on the helmet. That has always been the difficult part to me, and why I have not fully tackled a neo-crusader build myself.

resuming the update of my wip I show the progress of the helmet still lacks some arrangements but is already advanced by 90%

(https://i.imgur.com/hzweuBT.jpg)

still need to finish and fix the theme of the viewer "T" but as I said it is well advanced I hope this weekend to make the painting and make the missing arrangements

I await your comments

That helmet is definitely looking good! One of the benefits of being off the forum for a few weeks is coming back to all kinds of progress :)
