Armor Construction / Re: Scully WIP (first armor)

Got my plates shaped today! Still need to cut out the kneepads, gauntlets, and back plate, but I'm pretty pleased with where I got to today.

And yes, soon as I get a free moment I'll get a pic of them on for you guys. Here's a progress pic in the meantime!

Soft Parts / Re: Vaderfett's soft parts.

Personally, I went with a one piece, because it was just easier for me to find. Venom's completely right about two piece being superior for the bathroom.

Do you have a concept of what you're going for? A lot of people use a generator called mandomaker (easy to find on google) to plan up at least their color scheme. Even if you never sketch and think you're bad at drawing, a rough concept sketch will let us see what you're shooting for, and might help you work some things out too.

Also, do you need a quick runthrough on image posting? I'd be happy to explain it, or find the forums that have directions on it for you.

Helmets / Re: helmet question

Scratches are more than welcome as long as they fit with you character and the rest of your kit!
I have some lamely claw marks across the back part of my helmet from an upset Weil but also a smaller scratch on the front of the helmet as seen here





Other members have done cuts across the visor part itself and a few have even weathered their visor also.

I'm doing a budget Besk'ar as well, and I found out something crazy. Home Depot has 2x4 foot sheets of 3mm Sintra for cheaper than that. It's sold as "Palight Project PVC panels", and you can find it in store right now for $7 a sheet. It's only a few more than a sheet of sintra from US Plastics, but it's a lot cheaper including shipping. $28 for the equivalent of a 4x8 sheet is cheaper than Piedmont Plastics as well. I was able to get the sintra for a medium-heavy build for only $14, that's insane. This stuff is a lot more workable than Sterilite bins, and well worth the convenience when it's this cheap.

Buy. The crap. Out of that. Lol!

No hardware store where I live have or ever will carry it. No idea why, they just won't. The best lead I had was through a couple sign companies but they'd only sell it for (like one place) $30 for a 1x2 or (another place) $75 for a 3x3

Personally, I'll never use anything outside of sintra. It's easy easier to use. However, I live in a demographic where a lot of people build their stuff with dollar store items and Walmart stuff. Some have no access to internet and can't order it and those that can perfer seeing and feeling what they're buying. Yes, there are better things to use. But this is literally just a demonstration to some that you can literally make a kit out of off the shelf products that can be easily modified and assembled.

While this is an option, your information is a little off.  Sintra is actually a lot cheaper than most people realize.  Amazon for example currently has Sintra 48 x 24 x 3mm is only $17.70 + 11.40 = $29.10 and that's just a quick look, not actually searching for best pricing.  I know even locally I can purchase a 48 x 48 x 3mm sheet for $16.

Helmets / Re: Helmet help
« Last post by Quingin on Today at 01:58 PM »
How does it look with your torso plates and shoulder bells on?  In armor, you're going to be bigger than you are now.  One thing you need to be aware of too is you may need to do a bit of clearancing on the sides after your plates are made, because vest +plates may result in some rub there.  Might not.  I had to be careful of this issue with my kit tho. 

Typically with helmet, with only t-shirt armor, we will all look like a bit of a bobblehead.
