Looking good!
Thanks so much!

Oh yeah, very nice
Thanks so much!

Okay vode it's time for an update!

Sorry it's been so long since I've done an update, been busy with life stuffs :-).

Okay so first is an update on the neck seal. I ended up adding the material I took off of it back on because it was to short and kept popping out of the vest. So note to everyone, dont cut the material until you test fit it... lol


Next up is the vest. I added a flap on the sides to cover the zippers :-)



3rd I worked on my kama and loin cloth. I added accents to them so they were not just the black leather.






And finally the last update for today is the new armor pieces. I cut them out of 6mm sintra, beveled the edges and did some sanding. There is still a bit more sanding to do but I think I'll wait till I shape them and glue the trauma plates down.





That's all for now everyone :-)
Thanks for taking the time to check out my progress. Critiques are welcome!

Thanks God! The brown is fake leather and the black is thin leather I bought years ago. Just used a sewing machine to slowly stich them together :-).

This looks great, vod!

Thanks so much vod! Wait till ya see this update lol.

Greetings vode! I apologize for the lack of updates lately. Life happens :-)

So I go my plates shaped to my body (will have better pics of that later), added another plate to the back and re worked the shoulders because I didnt like how they were sitting. Also I attached the front and back plates with buckles and got those attached today. :-)

Here are the shoulders after trimming and whatnot. And some test fits with tape.





Here is the extra back piece I added :-)


And here is the buckles on the top of the armor.



Sorry not to many pics this update, phone was being weird. It's okay I'll get more soon.

So next tasks:
-Add a strap from the front to the back across the middle of the body.
-Strap the shoulders and get those where I want.
-Strap the legs and knees
-Sand and prime everything
-Paint!
- Pray and do a test fit of everything.
-if everything is working out then submit pre ap pics.


That's all for now everyone! Have a great day!
Thanks for hanging out and seeing what I'm creating.

-Josh

Hey code! So quick update showing some progress. :-)

So added the side strapping to the front and back and then was doing some test fits for how I'm thinking about mounting the shoulders.








Please let me know what ya think:-)

Thanks!

Armor is looking really good.  I see just a little float in the back plate on the left side.


If you look at this compared to your right side you will see the difference. The right side really lays against your back nicely with no gap. Just needs a little more shaping on the left.  Double check your collar area too. With your arms up we can’t see how the chest plate lays there. But from the front there doesn’t seem to be an issue.

Other than that little float the rest seems to be sitting good. Nice job on shaping the plates.

Roger that! I see what you mean.
Thanks so much for the input. I'll make sure to do a suit up and pics before painting so I can do any shaping touch ups and not ruin paint.
Thanks again!

Greeting Vod!

Another update today, a small one, but still an update. :-)
I've finished attaching my shoulder armor and I am digging it. I've got great range of motion (not pictured because it was a video lol)
And they sit great.
Pics incoming! Sorry for quality, wife was asleep and I couldn't wait to share lol.







That's all for now.
As far as what's next:
Strapping for my legs.
2nd waist item, although probably be a belt with sheaths for weapons.
Figure out battle damage, if any, on the armor.
More sanding and prepping for paint :-)

It's coming along, albeit slowly, but it's getting there. :-)

Greetings vode!

Okay so decided to suit up and test fit in most of what is built. This is also the new "flight suit" I'm planning on going with.

Helmet and Gauntlets are not in the picture. Gauntlets are not currently put together and didnt want to reassemble right now.
Knees are not strapped yet, just sitting in boot strap.






Overall I'm really happy with how it looks and excited to move on to paint soon. :-)

What do you guys think??

Thanks so very much for taking a look.

look.

-Josh

I think it looks great! I am an UM so I am no expert but you have done an awesome job!

Please correct me on any mistakes or wrong info.
The first thing that pops in my head is do you have gloves?
I have seen that some people paint the plastic buckles on the straps so they look more metal.

Im sure there are OMs here and maybe approval team members that can give more precise suggestions or comments.  I did want to say I have been following this thread some because I am making my first set legacy and have learn from you!

Yes I do have gloves and hand plates, just didnt have them ready for pics.
As far as the buckles go, yeah I'll be probably dry brushing them to give them that metal look :-)

Yeah I'm always down to hear what people have to say.
I'm glad that my build could inspire you! :-)
