Legacy desert kit (WIP)
« on: Oct 27, 2019, 04:41 PM »
Hello everyone! This is going to be my WIP thread for my legacy era desert kit. If it is not in the appropriate thread please excuse me. I will be posting the armor planning, construction, fitting and more. For now, here is the finished concept/design.

I am in the process of waiting for various parts to arrive, including my FS, my hemet, and some other soft parts. I wanted to make a JT 12 jetpack for my previous kit, but for some reasons I could never get to building it. I started the process today and this is what I have so far. Any building suggestions are welcome. Thanks! OYA!!

Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

That jetpack build is looking nice so far! Let's see a pic of those plates on you so we know they're going to fit you well! :)

Made more progress today. Unfortunately I have not been able to form my plates, but I will try to do my best to post them as soon as I'm able. I'm in the process of painting my Jetpack and I made a Stormtrooper style Thermal Detonator with some spare parts! Here's what I have so far.









As always, if you have any suggestions please feel free to help a brother out 👌👌👌

Hello again! I have made some progress since I last posted. I realized that my chest and back armor were too small and I decided to redesign them. Haven't been able to form them yet but hopefully I'll do that in the next couple of days. Took a pic of the templates and how they look with my vest (may look wonky because I was alone and it is very difficult to align them by myself). Also, I finished my jetpack! As I stated before, the colors are an homage to my previous kit (Also also 😂, it's sitting a bit lower than it's supposed to because I was alone. With help it will sit properly) Here's my progress!

























I'd love to hear what you guys think. This is the way.

Made the shoulders out of 4 inch PVC Elbows. Working on a few things this week, including making my helmet from a Rubies Jango 2 piece helmet, remaking my shnees, and tailoring my flightsuit. Had to change the boots as well.

Started working on my helmet. Sanded, bonded, and fiberglassed. Just a little more sanding and making the custom ear caps before paint. Updated the shnees by cutting the excess on the top to make it flat and squared. Also updated the gauntlets by making a more traditional vambrace shape with "trauma rails" as I like to call them on top. Belt has the pouches installed, they will be weathered to match the rest of the armor. Here's how the updates look so far.

Helmet is done! Gonna weather it a bit more as soon as I paint the rest of the armor. More updates soon! Bonus pic of my new helmet next to my original.
