Title: Bo Katan WIP Update w pics
Post by: vaderqueenzamora on Nov 01, 2019, 01:54 AM
 Hello ladies!! So change of gear for my mando suit. When I first started making my mando suit I wanted to do the custom route. I have been at a stand still for a few months now because I had to reorder armor, my first shaping did not come out right. Reassessing what I want to do for a mando suit, I decided to do a Bo Katan suit.

So far in my research and with help of an approved Bo Katan in Mandagalar clan this is what I have found. I have not heard any reviews on the vendor Mellomanguitars, if you have let me know your review on their products. Any advise is welcomed  :porg1:

Post by: vaderqueenzamora on Nov 16, 2019, 12:40 PM
Hello again! Some updates. I have had a hard time finding the perfect to very similar match for the flight suit in terms of pattern/material & shade. I found this mens long sleeve & women's leggings/pants at Khol's. For the flak vest, I bought two of the long sleeve shirts so one can be cut 3/4 sleeve & I can use the extra material to make the gloves & neck piece.

The CRLs states
Flightsuit
Flightsuit is dark charcoal gray (almost black) in color.
Single sleeved with long sleeves extending under the forearm gauntlets.
Flightsuit should be made of a cotton or cotton/spandex/lycra material.
No visible zippers or openings.
Flightsuit allows for the attachment of codpiece and holster armor.
Pants fight tightly with a seam extending from the hips to the ankle.
Knee and lower leg armor attach to the legs.

Flak Vest
Flak Vest is dark-charcoal gray (almost black) in color.
Vest is made from the same, or similar material as the flight suit.
Vest is as seamless as possible.
Neck area is surrounded by a turtleneck or tight neck seal that extends to the base of the wearers skull and chin.
Shoulders do not flare outward like wings, but are short sleeves that extend approximately 1/3 down the wearerís bicep.
There is a light bluish-grey trim around the bottom of the short sleeve, which is approximately ĺ-1Ē wide.
The length of the vest is long enough to be worn under the girth belt.
Flak Vest allows for the attachment of chest, back, belly, shoulder and collar armor, with no visible means of attachment.

Would these be acceptable?

Also, I received my armor kit from Imperial Surplus a few days ago, super excited to start cutting at my next armor party.

My helmet should come in early to mid December.

Update time!

At todays armor party I cut all of my armor and finished my soft suit. Since this week is thanksgiving week and I have it off, I plan to sand the edges maybe even start spray painting the base coat.

(https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/images/members/43830/Bo_Katan_Wip/IMG_20191123_201816.jpg)

I did need some advise on my gauntlets and my knees. For my gauntlets it came into a two piece so I can glue them together. I am curious if i need to cut on the yellow and blue lines and re-glue it. Anyone know or should I leave it uncut and just glue the two pieces together?
(https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/images/members/43830/Bo_Katan_Wip/20191123_215033.jpg)

Also for my knees, I had these made for my previous kit... do you think they will work?

Flightsuit color looks good to me! Iím not sure the knees will work for Bo, the shape might be a bit off.

Howís the shape and sizing on you? :)

I'm glad I found the right color suit. Just finished making the gloves out of extra fabric.

The knees were from my first costume kit so I thought I'd try those. But yes I dont think I will from the two feedbacks I got. I'm going to use the knees from the abs kit I purchased. Almost done sanding so soon I should have more to post.

Finished my gloves today, I made them with extra fabric I had from my flak vest. I did not realize till after I did not pull them all the way down so it looks bumpy on the fingertips.

Yay! I finished sanding today (I think I'm finsiehd) I want to get e6000 glue and epoxy puddy to attach my thighs + holsters and gaunlets before i start painting. Slowly but surely I am finishing one step at a time.

Before you start gluing on the holsters, how to the thigh plates fit? I know I had to cut them down to fit (I am very short though lol)

Let me take a picture and post them. I'm still new to this so I am not 100% sure.

Post by: vaderqueenzamora on Nov 27, 2019, 09:24 PM
They will likely work, however, some CRL notes for you:

501st:
Knees attach securely to the front of the flight suit with no visible means of attachment.

MMCC:
Must attach securely to the front of the knees over the flightsuit.

The difference is that the MMCC does not specify "no visible means of attachment", however, I advise you to follow the 501st CRL as it accurately replicates the look of the animated film and is detailed in the description. The sintra parts will need to have the strap removed, shown in your photo, or find a way to use the strap into the flight suit to hide the attachment method. (Jangos thread the strap through the flight suit to hide it)

Sintra is heavier than the abs plastic in your kit. The abs plastic will match the rest of your kit, is more accurate, and  will be easier to secure without visible strapping (Velcro will hold the lightweight plastic reliably). You can use the knees you have cut now, but it's advisable to use what came in the kit due to weight and visual accuracy. Your call on that. Both options are viable.

To answer your gauntlet question, the MMCC CRL says:
"Must open on the inside of the forearm and have a method of hinging (No Hinges or Rivets to be seen) on the outside."

Likewise 501st CRL:
"Armor opens on the inside of the forearm with an internal hinging method. No Hinges or Rivets are seen on the outside of the arm."

You will likely have to cut along the Blue Arrows you've marked to satisfy the 'open on the inside of the forearm' requirement.
The CRLs both request an "internal hinging method" which implies you should cut along the yellow arrows as well. Glueing them together won't be any better than leaving them together and sliding them on as a pressure fit. Over time however, stress along the yellow arrow line could cause the gauntlets to snap. You may be able to secure the gauntlets' inner closure with magnets or velcro.

Have you tried the gauntlets on by holding them to your wrists? Do you have enough room to slide them on with a pressure fit? I don't know how strict the CRL team will be on the internal hinging requirement, but you will likely have to cut them into clam shells and use an internal hinge, unless the pressure fit passes inspection.

Start sanding the other parts and wait until you have your answer. There's no rush to make that cut, you have plenty of things to work on.
Reach out to other Bo Katan's and ask if they can provide images of their setup. I'm just reading the CRLs at face value.

When I was cutting out the armor yesterday I was looking at the 501st CRL for references. It helped a lot.

For the knees I see your point, I'd rather have it consistent armor so I will do it out of the abs I received from my kit.

For the gauntlets I am concerned it will break on me so I think I will purchase 3D printed gauntlet from april storm.

Update!

So i have finished sanding but i think i need to do another go at for some pieces. I want to start putting my thighs and holsters together but want to make sure my thighs look right on me. Here are some pictures. Do they look like they fit me or too big/small?

Title: Re: Bo Katan WIP New Year, New Update
Post by: vaderqueenzamora on Jan 05, 2020, 12:07 AM
Happy New Year everyone!  ;D

Here is my winter break vacation, I have received my helmet from Imperial Surplus and I have finished putting everything together (gauntlets, knees, holsters). This coming Saturday 1/11 (aka my burrrrrthday) I will begin my base coat for my armor, depending if I have time - fingers crossed - I will also cut out my base of my helmet and the visor. I want to get my base coat and finishing the cut out of my helmet because I do not have the tools to do it at home.

Other than what I listed, I still need to order my jetpack, ammo/girth belt, and boots. Once I have that down then I will focus on getting the wig and making the headband. Its coming along slowly!

 Here are some update photos...Enjoy!

Today I feel great about my process. This was my first time spray painting armor. So far I only did first base coat on all my pieces except for my gauntlets, knees, and thighs. I still have fine sanding for those three. With the huge help of a fellow friend, my helmet got cut out. Now I need to go with a sand paper and filer for the visor and the bottom. I ordered my wig so that should be here soon. Here are some photos.... enjoy

Looks great!  I do notice (and you have probably corrected it already) the spacing of your nose triangle between your eyes on your visor seems to be closer to your right cheek top corner than your left.  The tip seems to be centered on your nose line but maybe could get a little sanding down that right side to open the space to be similar to the left side.  If that makes any sense!

Ello! Here is some updates.

I had redo my helmet, knees, thighs, & gauntlets. I added bondo to my knees, thighs, & gauntlets to perfect the shown lines. For my helmet there was a lot of imperfections with the first paint job. Also I have to get my visor straight. It may look uneven still..... won't know until I do another coat of filler paint. A lovely friend of mine sewed on my velcro to my flak vest. Today I sewed in the magnets to secure the armor. April I should be getting my jetpack & belt.

I need to do....
sew the velcro to my pants
repaint the last armor pieces & helmet
add my visor
add cushion & fans to helmet
buy my boots
buy weapons
cut wig
make headband
sand & paint jetpack
make holster

Hello! Since I have a lot of time on my hand being "work from home" I got a lot done!  :porg2: with the exception of putting my darts & blade on my gauntlets, the rangefinder, & my jetpack... I am 100% done with the rest of my armor  :D :D

Other then listed above I still need to make a harness, make holes in my backplate for the harness, buy my weapons, buy my shoes & weather them, sew the rest of my velcro on my pants, add padding & fans in my helmet, & cut my wig.

Another update!

I received my westar 35s a few days ago, still waiting on my belt & jetpack to arrive. For my armor and soft suit, I am adding and fixing velcro errors on my soft suit so it can be perfect. I received my shoes & added my armor to that, also finished my gauntlets & helmet!! Next I need to try to cut my wig & make the headband but not sure how I will get sintra since we are on shelter in place.

Title: Re: Bo Katan WIP Gauntlet Question
Post by: vaderqueenzamora on May 31, 2020, 03:24 AM
Hello! I wanted some clarifications with my gauntlets.
MMCC CRLs state
"
Must open on the inside of the forearm and have a method of hinging (No Hinges or Rivets to be seen) on the outside.
The right gauntlet must contain the following components as shown in visual references:
ē  Five illuminated buttons on the top. Four of which are red and in a row, the last being perpendicular and behind the firsts row on the outside. A white button must be next to it, in the same plane as the first row. Two forward facing gray or silver blasters in front of middle section. Two vertical slights on the outside of the blasters for exploding disc to be expelled. A slit for blade disc to be expelled (over wrist opening."
The right gauntlet must have a red in color range finder target as shown in visual reference.
The left gauntlet must have four forward facing darts in front of middle section, Five illuminated buttons on the top. Three of which are red and in a row,
the other two red and white behind the first row with the outside button being red. Next to the white button should be 2 non-illuminated gray buttons.
A gray or silver electrical grappling hook in the middle, and a slot for the hidden knife to extend or retract (over wrist opening).


Mine

For my gauntlets I glued them closes so they cannot "open & close," I am able to slide my arm in & out comfortably and it does not float. My question is will that pass App. I have looked at her photos for references and do not see any anything that shows her gauntlets open and close. Second question is the "illuminating" bottoms. I painted my bottoms to their respective colors. My question is will this pass App. Again I do not see her gauntlets "illuminated" rather just the colors in a dull shade. Above are my photos & below are the reference photos

I put this on the ďarmor constructionĒ got views but no comments so i thought i post it other places to get the confirmation. Since you did get approved with it slipping on and off Iím hoping itíll be the same for me
