Jal Korvo New WIP Thread
« on: Mar 20, 2018, 11:18 PM »
Hellooo. I have not started a topic or posted in my old ones in a very long time, thanks to Photobucket, as well as, taking an extended break from my kit. But I'm excited to be back and working on things. I've since acquired some ABS sheets and cut out some plates. My most recent progress is these knees.

And since it's been such a long time, here's my helmet, which has been done for a couple years now.

I began planning in 2014 so as you can guess, I'm quite ready to finish this up and get official. I suppose I should make a checklist.
Flightsuit
Flak vest
Ammo belt
Girth belt
Boots
Half chaps
Helmet
Knees
Blaster
Loin cloth
Gloves
Backplate
-Holster
-Gauntlets (on the way)
-Lower armor attachments


Looking forward to getting back into things.

Those are all looking good.  I'm looking forward to seeing more, vod.  Welcome back.

Small update. Just got this arm band in the mail to hold the flares I bought a few months ago. Really love how it looks.

Well I broke my elbow so progress has been slow. I got some plates shaped but otherwise, I've been working on other parts. Got a new belt and buckle. Acquired, assembled, and painted a new sidearm, as well as binders. And found a cool utility loop to attach my leather pouch. Hopefully be healed up before Summer's over. I wanna get this armor done before the end of the year.

Finally some progress! Just got my loin cloth. I love it. With the exception of a holster for my blaster, my belt setup is finished. Aside from that, just need to paint my shin armor and add attachments for shins, knees, and boot armor. That will complete my lower half. Closing in on getting this done and it feels great.



And here's the boot armor.

Got a back plate shaped today thanks to help from Desago. Also finished up shaping torso armor and got outlines drawn on the vest for attachment. All other plates were cleared for size and spacing and are ready to be sanded and painted. I'll be working on a holster for my blaster soon and I'm just waiting on the gauntlets to arrive. Really getting close here and I'm super excited.  :porg1:

This color scheme looks amazing. Great weathering job, the pieces really look like dinged-up metal due to hard use.

Thanks so much vod! That's great to hear. I'm so excited to finish. Got even more done today. Velcro on the vest. Flight suit all tailored up. Plates ready for paint.

Was gonna wait to post this til I finish the other chest plate tonight, but I'm much too excited. So first, here's the concept I came up with when I started almost 4 years ago.

And here is where I'm at on the torso.

So so happy to finally be this close. Lemme know what you think.

I feel like this may be the last post before pre-app pictures. Every piece of armor in my possession is finished. All that's left is taking care of lower armor attachments, making my holster, and my gauntlets, which should be shipping this week. Here's everything I have so far. Can't say enough how great this feels.
