my legacy wip
« on: Apr 19, 2019, 04:44 PM »
After what seems like an age away and getting hung up on the problems with my first attempt at armour .
I have taken the decision to start afresh with a legacy set of armour and put what I learnt into something new and hopefully much better .
so first step ...templates ... had to trim them abit as i coudnt move my arms inwards ... hopefully the shape is still ok  as took some from the middle and outside
lost ab plate 4 as ab plate 3 finishes just above belly button


I am still having issues with chest plates feeling to wide and not a lot of arm movement … I did see a post where somebody had done what they called the arms crossed test whilst ...was wondering how much arm movement you should have ?

Had another trim of the templates today to try and narrow them abit to give some arm moment and tweeked the ab and collar plate as well … is the sizing ok ?
Was also wondering if the collar plate should be in front or behind the chest plate ?

It all needs to move up a bit.  The top of the collar should be resting where the top of your t-shirt collar is. Width is looking pretty good.
The collar plate can be either on top of or underneath the chest plate, your call, but there cannot be a gap between them.

On my kit it's on top.

You may end up dropping or trimming Ab3, but that'll be something you figure out once you have waist items.

cheers Dan …Design  sort of evolved rather than planned and the bottom ab plates design was  copied from  template Skeltis posted on his build

its been bugging me on how to do the shoulders ...was watching clone wars the other day and hey presto ...Arc trooper style pauldron design ...this is what ive come up with



and this is the idea



not the final colour but needed to get a base coat on before sticking them to the leather and the boba style shoulders plates

Thankyou for the kind words always nice to know your heading in the right direction
backplates finally bolted together with chicargo screws


made a couple of ally plates to hold the chest and back plate together and leather straps with chicargo screws again for everything else … centre diamond has been removed as turned out it was slightly off … not sure how it happened, possibly when it was heated up but will make a new one
 
hope to get some straps made for the sides this weekend and some pics of me wearing it and some side pictures

update...side straps hav'nt happened yet but did get some more sanding done ... this is how they are looking so far
