Droxis' armor WIP
« on: Aug 21, 2016, 11:07 PM »
The struggle begins. Printed my Jango Fett templates. Cut, aligned, taped, traced and am now working on cutting. I did notice a lack of knees though. Dies it have to be the squared knees or can I do something else with modern era. I just never really dug em.

Also have one of my gauntlet items started. Just a simple dart launcher. The other will have an led double beam flashlight. Both are made from parts sourced mainly from a Hasbro laser tag gun I used for part of my second blaster build. I'm going to go fairly simple on them compared to many gauntlets I've seen because I don't want to look more streamlined. Paired down to the bare necessities.

side piece update. Due to an eye injury the delayed my build it was recommended in another thread that I add it into my kit. My helmet will have a blaster shot that obviously entered into the visor slit just in front of my eye and would have hit me. I'm building an eyepatch/cybernetic eye to go on when my helmet is off. I think it gives the note that we aren't invulnerable in our armor. 

I don't actually need an eyepatch  anymore so the "eye" will allow me to see through the patch and keep depth perception. the "eye" is a gutted and cut down door peep sight. I'' be adding mesh behind the black trim ring so you cant see my eye but allows some airflow as the patch fits tight to the skin. Some other electronic components will be added so it looks the part, and will be painted to match the armor and distressed to look like it has had a helmet put over it many many times. Like it's an old part of me now.

eye think this is a great start, vod! word of warning, it is the preference (I actually think it's kind of a rule too) to not double-post but instead to simply Edit the previous post. thoigh I'm not sure how it pertains with a time gap

I've been told by a Tech Team member that if has been more than 24 hours a new post is ok. Otherwise your thread is just one long edited post that never gets bumped to the top and eventually gets buried and dies with no one seeing it.

I don't understand? Did I double post the same thing? W.I.P.s are supposed to be updated with follow-ups si you can watch the progression. It's not supposed to be one long unending post like mysterious said.

Knees are the minimum lower body armor you need to have, but you don't necessarily have to Boba or Jango knees.  Just don't slap SWAT or unmodified Sport padding on your legs and call it done.

I think what Tantos is referring to is your first two original posts from August 21st.  The general rule is 24 hours between posts so in the future just go back and modify your original post to include the additional info you want to add so you don't violate any forum rules.

As for your armor plates, what material are you using?  I would highly recommend cutting out your armor pieces on paper or craft foam first before going right to your sintra.  That way, we can check sizing and general spacing before you go right into your building material and potentially having something be too small.
