NEO crusader doubts
« on: May 19, 2017, 11:23 AM »
Hi, I would like to make a "neo-crusader" suit but I have some doubts that I hope someone can help me solve. The first one is about the color, I would like to make the "soft part" in dark blue and the armor in a "lighter blue".  The next doubt is about the helmet I would like to know if it is necessarilly that the helmet be a single piece or I can make it in two pieces the mask and helmet separately.

thanks for your help


hola, me gustaria hacer un traje de "neo crusader" pero tengo algunas dudas que espero me puedan ayudar a resolver.  Lo primero es sobre el color, me gustaria hacer la "soft part" de azul oscuro y la armadura azul mas claro.  Sobre el casco quisiera saber si necesariamente debe ser una sola pieza o puedo hacerla dividida la mascara y el casco por separado.

gracias por su ayuda

Hey Jorey, check out Makris Brik's kit HERE for Neo Crusader concepts.  Might help you a little bit with questions and then maybe a couple of PMs with him to help get you started.

Fair warning I like to take pictures and I've written a novel, so be prepared for both.

The plates and the flight suit need to be the same color as per the CRLs and little bit of different is going to happen just the nature of paint vs fabric. So one can be a bit lighter than the other but they the difference cannot be huge.

As for the helmet- the mask and the dome are required to be hard pieces and the cowl needs to be firm. The mask and helmet really more than likely need to be attached because you want a smooth dome to mask line.

during the weekend I made some progress in my armor I detail them below

next I show you the shin guards as you will notice the right plate includes knee brace while the left not this is to be according to the thighs later on may realize


here we see the left and right gauntlets, you can see that the right has an extension that covers the elbow


This is the plate that will cover the crotch


Here the gloves with the protective plate that in other uses serves to cover the brand of gloves hahahahahaha


and to conclude I leave an image of how the plates of the armor already put would look


in this week I hope to make the plate for the boots, as well as the belt and the pouches. I will also do the painting of the plates and the helmet I will leave for the last

Outstanding work my friend! My only suggestions are that you might need to add a small curve to the hand plates, cod plate and perhaps the chest plate depending on how they sit on your body. All together very good progress :)

Below I show you the progress of this week, the gauntlets, shoulders, thighs and the back plate were painted

gauntlets with a small color design


thighs and shoulders with a set of colors without losing the base color of the suit that is blue


backplate


for the next week I hope to advance the hand plates, crotch plate and the chest plate to proceed to do the test over the overall

regards

PD: Thanks slade for your advice i will take note of that

hello to all continuing with my armor I show you the first advance of my helmet, it should be noted that it is a Pepakura helmet these days will proceed to harden it and thus begin to give the final touches.



I await your comments, thanks
