Mashukir's WIP (Pic Heavy) Now with working pics!
« on: Dec 22, 2015, 01:50 PM »
Admittedly I've been putting this off.... but I should really be posting all my progress pics here.  So here goes. 

We  started my build a few weeks ago, and have been working on it since.  It is 12g aluminium and between 18-24g copper as well as leather holding it all together. 

The end of the first day, with some of my plates cut out.  I do realize I'm missing gauntlets, a cod, and a helmet, but those are all coming.






The next week we dry fit everything, and started painting.  (borrowed helmet/it is a little cold here, as you can see)






When I was home in my studio I did the cutout for my left shoulder, and the used the extra bit on the right chest plate




Shoulder/bicep/chest plate dry fit and copper application






Chestplate assembled



First fitting (Pardon the hoodie, it was FREEZING in the shop.) 






back plate accessory/storage fitting



chest plate with diamond (just got that riveted on today):

Dang, that's looking spiffy! You working with Dresdon? That helmet looks like one of his.

Yup! He's doing the aluminium side, and I'm doing the copper. The majority of the pics are taken in his shop.

If you are working with Dresdon you're in good hands. He definitely knows what he's doing.

I'm having a blast, hoping to have new pics up in the next few days, waiting on paint to dry, and a little more progress before my next pic dump.

Oooooh, somebody else using a split ab like mine :P Movement is good yes? Love the copper detailing on your plates.

I actually surprised how comfortable the plates are (thus far), I can bend enough, except for my back plate. The split ab is all on Dresdon, but I love the way it looks.

The copper work is all I can contribute, I trained at school as a jeweller. As for who is helping me, I lucked in to it. I Live in the right place at the right time.


So.  New pics tonight. 

Handplates  Not fastened down to the gloves yet, Trying to find my heat gun.




Greaves with copper attached/blackwashed and the belts attached.




Looking at starting my flak vest next.  Does just duck cloth work, or does it need batting?  I have a grey flight suit that I've been modifying for a while, and it fits pretty well now. I'm thinking a black flak vest.

Duck cloth is pretty stiff, but metal is heavy, so I've got no clue, hahaha. Someone with more sewing experience should probably weigh in here :P

Also, posting new progress after more than a day or so doesn't fall under the double posting rule, so as long as you're posting new progress you don't have to edit it into your previous post :)

You kit looks stunning! That weathering and copper work is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the shape of the torso plates. And as far as a duck cloth vest, batting it might be a good idea with metal plates. I used duck cloth for my vest with no batting or lining and even with only 3 mm Sintra plates bolted to it, it pulls down a little bit. With your plates mounted on leather already, though, you're less likely to have that problem, I think c:

I had no idea what fell where (and I know double posting is bad), so I went for safety this time. :-P

Thanks!!!   I'm hoping to get my vest patterned/material bought in the next few days (if it ever stops snowing). I think I'll leather up the shoulders to support the shoulder/bicep plates, but I'm hoping to avoid batting the whole thing, especially with the floating armour over the vest. I am aware how hot armour gets, so the less layers the better.

I've got metal on leather and they've never sagged, so I'd say with them mounted metal-steel-fabric, you'll be fine as long as all the points have that reinforcing so you don't leave any significant weight hanging from just the fabric

Today I finally got back to the shop for some repairs, and velcro installation.  It was about -10 in the shop today, so changing into my flight suit took some coaxing, but even with a t-shirt instead of my flak vest, and the biceps not anchored (because of the aforementioned t-shirt), I think I'm still making progress.  Something i learned was that in spite of the fact I am only about 5'3", was that the "tall" one piece flight suit fits my torso perfectly, I just had to take the legs up about 8", and about 5" off the inseam.  Apart form the arms being a little baggy, it fits perfectly.

Front view:


Left side (again, bicep not anchored, I will make sure everything is velcroed on straight when my vest happens):



Right side:


After all the pics were taken, it got "crush gaunt weathered", AKA Dresdon went to town testing his new crush gaunts on my armour. I am officially no longer shiny.

that looks purely amazing, honestly right after i finish with my sinter build, ima make a metal one hopefully, my mom has metal working tools for jewelry :P but i noticed that your cheek pieces in the helmet were like vents, are you going to cover them in the back?
