AWALL (Resahc Mrots)- Approved Brigades WIP
« on: Mar 14, 2019, 12:31 AM »
Here are a few pics of my new mando build over last year.  All parts were 3d printes on a gcreate printer.  All printed in in PLA.  Enjoy! Comments appreciated!

Knees




Gauntlet mockup






Hands- Helmet Interior - Blasters

























Helmet still needs interior work and visor (UPDATE) circuit board behind key holes was painted black and is barely visible as to comply with kit guidelines.










Right Gauntlet





Left Gauntlet (still need to paint over the numbers on keypad)





Darts and left thigh unattached





Gun Belt - Boots -Gloves





3d Printed holsters then used a heat gun to bend to shape.  really wanted to make them look like leather





3d printed male and female fixtures that also accept a small screw.  the males were plastic welded to the armor then cut holes in leather.  The plan is to add interior strapping to give extra measure of support to the leather.  Zipper is totally concealed on the outside once the chest diamond is in place.  Modified an old leather motorcycle jacket

No worries.  I did notice, though, that your rocket is lacking a cradle.  It'll need something to rest on, rather than being attached directly to the gauntlet.

What method are you using to smooth your prints? The elements of this are coming together nicely.

Just old fasioned elbow grease.  Sanding the print and priming...then more sanding ...then final coat of primer before paint.  I've been using all Krylon brand paint and buildup primer.  I've been very happy with the results.
