Anyone trying these? Any Feedback? We printed them out and had to tweak them a little based on his size but nothing drastic. I will be working on the gauntlets today and try to do a video on them.

I really, really like this armor style.  Thank you for posting the templates!
I just might use the shoulder/bicep armor on my current kit.

Couple of tweeks I would make, having stared at it nearly every since 2007. Bracers look like they're coming out nicely.

Question. Did you finish the legs yet and will you be making videos for those as well?  I'll be picking up some pvcsoon as I get paid next.

Hmmm... I think the raised rectangular piece needs to be increased in Width and Lenght so that it lines up with the sides of the forward greebie. I would also increase the height so the rectangle piece sits taller. I seem to remember that the piece was larger (might of been my monitor settings) back when SWG was still running, but it's the only thing that looks off, if only slightly to me.

Like always though your knocking another project out of the park though Dave, and making it easy enough that someone like me can do it :P

Have a good one,
Hagen

Have you put together the thigh plate yet? The main surface on your template has a jog in it that I'm not quite relating to the armor

Thanks for sharing with us! I might just have to use some of this for my build.
How did you secure the gauntlets? I watched the vid you posted on them but didn't see how you did that.
Title: Re: Star Wars Galaxy Armor Templates with videos Updated 13Jan12
Post by: khoweyEMT on Feb 08, 2012, 11:46 AM
just started my work on this last night. having sizing issues, probably gonna need to print the templates out at 175%-200%. printing them as is might fit a small child.

P.S. Bump

Ithica,

Excellent tutorial on the gauntlet build.  I learned a lot.  Definately taking it and going to start on a set of gaunts for my son.  Thanks for all the work you put into this.

Excellent work on this armor vod! I plan on using some ideas from this armor on my kit. But I plan on tweaking it for more improved wearer movement. :)

Thanks for creating the templates.
I printed these out in A4 (I'm about 172cm, regular sized female) and didn't change anything. They're the perfect size!

Really been looking forward to something like this! Am I missing something though, I don't see the bottom template for the gaunts?

EDIT: Watched the tut, nevermind ^___^

Post by: Beedge on Nov 28, 2015, 04:21 PM
I noticed the Gauntlet Front template you provide is quite different from the one in your video.. The one in the video looks much wider, with more drastic angles where it widens out..

Great tutorial though! I was thinking I was gonna have to buy my gaunts, but thanks to this I should be able to put that money towards something else.. like shooty things or some leather

This is what I was able to recover by doing some digging. I am not sure if it is a complete set, but it looks close if not.

Happy to help. I have a very unlabled set of the templates in PDF format set up for a large format printer as well, but that would require a lot more work for most to print.

Just a question, anyone got photos of their kit? I'm looking at using this for my initial mando kit.

Honestly, your best bet is going to be digging through the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Gallery (http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?board=14.0).  It's not an ideal solution, I know, and will require some digging, but you can find some gems there.

I am extremely new to these forums, and cosplay as a whole, but does anyone have suggestions as to how I can resize the templates to fit my body? Or at least point me in the right direction?

Print at different scaling on your printer, or same with a copy machine.  If smaller, this is no problem.  If larger, you may need to look at legal sized paper, or printing one piece with the "tile" option.  Or you can measure and draw your chest on a piece of poster board, then draw the templates to fit that.

Thank you so much for the scaled back piece. These templates fit me pretty well with no alterations and I will most likely use them for my first build, you definitely saved me from some headaches.

How do you cut the PVC Pipe into the sections and shapes you want?  I've done some minor plumbing and have used saw to cut horizontal sections but never into more geometric shapes.

Post by: Kall on Dec 05, 2019, 05:17 AM
My gauntlets are similar to this style.  I used my table jigsaw and dremel for cutting things out. All my armor is from 3 or 4 inch PVC pipes.

I have a question on the closings for these gauntlets. are they a solid peice or did you use piano hinges on them? I am at the bracers phase of my own build and at a loss on how to open/close them.

Post by: Kall on Dec 09, 2019, 11:11 PM
I'm not sure for the original design. Mine are slip on and solid.

Is there anywhere to find a 3D print file for this kit. I started making from pepakura but it is taking so long and I have been plagued with retrys
