« on: Jan 28, 2017, 02:19 PM »
I am currently working on the design concepts for my first kit, and here are a couple of refs I've been working on for the past few weeks.



"Burd" bucket



Tips and feedback much appreciated!

That concept is ridiculous! ;D I like flak vest number 1, but both of them look great. ;)

With the artistic skills you clearly possess, I'm sure you'll kick this thing's butt! ;D

lol Thanks. XD

You should see the other prototypes, but I had to narrow it down to two, but still unsure if I want to go for a third prototype.

3D printed a couple of the Bo Katan Gauntlets from thingiverse. I used two different machines to print them, hence the dual colors. I'll add on another picture of them sanded, filled/apoxie putty, and smoothed with XTC-3D.

Love the design very much!!! I'd like to replace my own gauntlets with those Bo Katan ones...

Will be following this with interest.

3D printed the knees Sunday:

I have to wait on my new rotary tool before I can pre-prime with Bondo and XTC-3D.

I am going to take care of the shoulder pieces sometime between this and next week. Once my soft parts are finished, I'll move this all over to an actual armor WIP thread once I get started on the bigger prices.

I do have a question regarding weapon props:

I have the plans and whatnot to build a pair of waster 35 pistols. Is eva allowed as a base-mat, or do I need to either 3d print it, get resin ones, or make them out of Sintra?

We advise people away from EVA due to how it looks when finished. People have had success layering wood/sintra and body filler for a final product. There are also people who sell Resin Casts of them already.

Here is the CRL extract on EVA for your information:
Quote
EVA foam is not an acceptable armor building material for the MMCC. EVA foam MAY be considered for use on parts such as “soft cods” and “soft” knees. It will be a suitable material to back plating on knees and such for comfort. Any EVA that is visible, ie. soft cods and soft knees, will be HIGHLY scrutinized. It is HIGHLY recommended that if you choose this route, you heavily incorporate the App Team in the WIP and apply any suggestions to increase the probability of acceptance.

Thanks for your answer. I'll see to either printing or tossing money at EA for a pair of resin models.
