I'm not sure if there are any templates for those. Well at least that I'm aware of. I do know one of the suppliers in the Supply Depot makes some I just can't remember which one it is off the top of my head at the moment.

Oh well, if no one knows of any templates, I'll make my own from reference pics. Thanks!

Better? :) Also, any ideas on how to get Hondo Karr shoulder plates (sorry Rob, I wanted something less bulky)?

Much better! :)

And, no worries on the shoulder plates...the one's we made were based on Savage Oppress, because Drake was going for a Zabrak Mando at the time, and we didn't make the Legacy versions. The Hondo Karr shoulder plates seem to be simple, dished curves; you might consider using the tops of old plastic construction helmets for that cupped effect.

Thanks! :D Do the edges of the lames look right with the edges pulled back?

Gotcha. Yeah, I've been looking at reference pictures. I'll see what I can do.

Thanks!

Plastic piping can work well for those shapes. The tops of 90 degree connectors or U bends tend to have the right curvature to them.

Thanks Rob and Kris for your advice, I'll definitely look into that. :)

Thanks Kodiak! I like them more every time I put the templates on. :D

Oh, does anyone know where I can find a template for the Hondo Karr shoulder plates?

We at Gungan armory sell them. If you prefer to make them yourself and have a pair of Arc Trooper shoulders laying around you can hack them up to get the correct angles, you can also pep and harden a set if you don't have any lying around your house. And I recommend against the piping. It's very hard to find a set of the angled parts that not only fit you properly, but for most people once you get them large enough to fit they are too thick to heat properly and easily.

Thanks Zeruxs. I'll keep that in mind.

Finally got time to assemble the backplate. Here's that picture.


The template wasn't cooperating on the shoulders. I've got the shins put together, and as soon as I can get the knee taped together, I'll take a picture with the thigh, knee, shin, and boot plates. :)

Ok, so I got the leg templates taped on.



I know the thigh plates are HUGE, but I'm not sure how much to trim off. 1/2" all the way around? Also, the shin plates and boot plate seemed a little wide to me. The shin assembly went most of the way around my leg, and the straps of the boot plate go all the way around to the back (maybe it's supposed to do that).

Thoughts?

Mainly top and bottom on the thigh. With it taped in place, sit down, mark where it is creasing at your waist and trim it back to that spot. And about half inch at the bottom just so it's not clipping the knee if things shift.

The idea of those shin plates was to wrap almost completely around the leg, for a "heavy armor" effect; same with the large thighs.....but, feel free to mod these as you see fit, because they are totally customizable! ;)

Oh, and the boot plates were made to fit my motorcycle/lineman boots, lol. :)

Hahahaha! Good to know! :) I may just trim them all as I like the "heavy armor" look. Just a few more templates to print t and size and I'll start putting it to sintra. :D
