Jayrodadon's Planning/WIP
« on: Jan 19, 2016, 11:58 PM »
Good day!
So I'm working on building armour again but this time I'm not just going to be whipping up something in a month or two. I'm planning on a Modern Era, but I'm changing the helmet up slightly for shabs 'n' giggles.

Here is the armour colour planning using Mando Maker

The black may be changed to grey.  Still tossing my head around that one.
In fact I may change the colour scheme later. LoL

And with the bucket I've altered a pepakura design I found online.

I may still add a Cody Visor, not positive yet. 

I'm planning on a light/medium armour scheme, (picture one knee pad and on the other leg the shin guard).

Any input peoples?

Looks great! I'm in awe of people who do pep helmet builds, I don't have the patience for that. I like your plan and colours so far, I'm a big fan of multi coloured plates.

I've recently read a build that had one shin plate, one knee and an app team member said it was alright. Looking forward to seeing this build progress- let me know if you need a hand with anything. As I said before- if you're going the sintra route, just let me know; we have plenty here.

Wow! It sure has been a while!

So yeah, I'm still here.

Started making the gauntlets using a Kotan Pepakura build



I used Fiberglass Resin, followed by Bondo


My old Pepakura helmet gave too many problems, (wouldn't stay in place, wrong era, etc,... thanks Zophar for straightening me out on this in time to fix), so I switched my attack plan to modifying my old Rubies Jango Fett helmet


Gardengeek stitched me up a denim vest which I covered in leather patches, (I like this look a lot and have two vests covered in this style as well already).


So this is where I'm sitting right now.

Still at it,...

Just pulled my first cast and it turned out decent.

Pulled my first cast tonight and have my ammo pouches too!

looking good, if you click the first button on the left on the second row, it's insert image, then put your url between the tags that appear, it will embed the photo, but it only works one pic at a time, not for albums I think.

Thanks! I'll try and remember that for next time!
