Echoylir's Protector build.
« on: Jun 26, 2016, 06:16 AM »
So my Legacy armour project didn't pan out. Switch gears, go for Protector. Without further ado, photos! Will add a foreword though, I'm currently using my old flak vest while I sort out a replacement. It won't be the one I app in with.







































The belly plate was floating, hard, and was altered to be like the above picture. The back plate was also adjusted to fit.

Still a long, long road ahead. A big list of things to tick off on the BRL. Tailoring the flightsuit is one of the major things I'll be going at soon, I hope. I have gloves, girth belt, gauntlets and knee plates already, they just need fixing and adjusting.

Protector is a long road, but I'm sure you'll get there.

Looking awesome vod, really liking the shaping of the backplate. Backplates are never easy things to shape... Can't wait to see the progress. Are you aiming for completion for celebration?

Partial completion for Celebration, then all the finishing off and Protector application shortly after.

Very quick micro-update.



Got my DLT-19's sling installed.









Also the plates are silvered up.

Another update, helmet stuff this time. Was informed the weathering was just a -LITTLE- bit too much, so it got redone. Turned out nicer I think. Although the "I got my face scraped against a sail barge" look was kept  :D

Also, gauntlets. Detail work on them to do, then everything gets dunked in some gunk to add some funk.



















Addendum: Torso armour and leg armour!

Hard armour is done and fully weathered. First stage of soft part work is getting done this week, then a stress test troop ( Celebration London of all places! ).

Then it's onward to ticking boxes for the BRL.

Great weathering on those plates and various pieces.

I know you mentioned those plates were kind of long on you and I'm curious to see how they look on you now.

Watch this space for full kitting up pictures. But I wanted to show the newly tailored flight suit.



And my awesome sense of sock co-ordination.
