The fabric coating would need to go, and they'd  but the bottom could be leather.  The top needs to look like hard armor though.

those raps might be something to do for the bottom part of the gauntlet, but not the shell.  And they look more crusader era than modern as they are in the pics.

it'll be judged case by case, will have to see it a little further along :p but possible, yeah
just don't make the whole kit too medieval, or you'll end up in crossover territory.

Yup, that should work great! be sure to clean it throughly *surface oils etc*, and then scuff it before you prep for paint.  I'd back the holes with sintra or something like it, then fill with bondo.  If it's too flexible anywhere, you can add strips of sintra to make it more rigid.

Yeah, It's kinda flexible but I use heat gun on the sides so it wraps around my body nicely .

Looks like the right size. When you get a collar on it will help.

Agree with Redraynos, it's definitely wide enough, just need to template out a collar -- remember the collar needs to overlap the top of the chest plate.

Must the collar overlap ?
Or can I place them close together like this ?
Please excuse the face  :D

They can touch instead of overlap. But there can't be any gap between them where they touch.

^^^^ yup. It basically wants to look like a solid piece that not even a knife can slide through.


Also thank you again for being an awesome student and willing to learn and apply things. It makes for a wonderful experience helping you and your clan.

Thks guys. I'll try and do as close as possible , if it doesn't look right , I can always overlap it. Good to learn something new so I can help the rest if they want to take the legacy route.
