Hi everybody! I'm brand new here and I've finally made enough progress on my kit to start a WIP thread. So far I've finished my kama and loincloth and I've got the pants for my flight suit (I'm still trying to find a shirt to use that will match). I've tried to post pictures of it here but it doesn't seem to want to work so I'm posting flickr links to them instead.
This is a sketch of what I want my kit to eventually look like.

And here's what I've got so far (ignore my stony face in these  :rolleyes:).

edit  Here's the pics without having to follow a link. Thanks for the help Karl!

I think the kama and loincloth look good. I was thinking making something similar for my kit. I need to hide some added material on my pants.

You'll want to use the icon of the Mona Lisa photo to insert your images into this post.  After clicking on the icon simply paste the url link in between the brackets ] here [ with the words img on either side.  It will help others view your photos without going off site.  Looking good so far.  :)

Thanks for the tip about the photos. I've never really used a forum like this before so I'm not so good with the codes and such.

I've decided to try using a fencing chest protector for my chest plates. Here it is with the templates taped on. Does the positioning look alright? The bottom points are going to end up being about an inch shorter than the template. Is that going to be a problem?



I also found some knee pads at Lowe's that should make great shoulder bells once they've been trimmed a bit and I've taken the pads off.


I've also got a mock up of a blaster mod going. Does it look like I'm going in the right direction with it? It is one of those nerf mods that everyone warns against, but I don't mind putting in the extra work for it. I'm planning on adding a scope to it as well, I just haven't gotten one yet. Let me know what you guys think.

Nice, glad I was of help for your photos.  I'm liking the direction you are going with this blaster.  I'd be careful with pads for armour components, you'll need to heavily modify it to make it look nothing like a knee pad (even if you are using it for a shoulder bell).

The bottom prongs on the chest plates being shorter won't be a problem, mine are much shorter than normal, just remember to cut the ab plate to fill in the gaps.

For the shoulders, remove the pads as you said, and ensure that the trimming includes the edge section that attaches to the pad as that's the most obvious part. Once they're off it's plain enough that it should be unrecognisable once painted up.

Okay, so I got my chest plates and chest diamond cut out of the chest protector and I trimmed down the shoulder bells. I still need to bondo the ventilation holes in the chest plates.

Interesting choice for the shoulder bells, but they look great! Good job!

Nice, those shoulder bells turned out great.  It will be even cooler looking when painted up.

Watching with interest. The shoulders are a unique mod that I believe will work awesome.

Thanks guys! I paid a visit to the awesome guys at Kamino Outpost and they were a big help. Also they made me heavy duty knees! Thanks fellas!


I also finally got my sintra, and got a collar plate and ab plate cut out. I think I may have screwed up the collar though. I think I trimmed it too much.


I also finished my vest and found some pretty sweet gloves.

Collar may be a little thin, ab may be a little big. If necessary - you can take some off the ab and layer the collar with the offcut.
