Vira's Armor W.I.P
« on: Jul 23, 2012, 04:39 PM »
After a few months of sitting on my shebs planning out my armor I finally came up with a template that worked.
(Original Design: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=50786.0)

And with the amazing help of the Wampa clan at yesterdays armoar partah got the hardest part of my armor made: the chest pieces!

I didn't get around to sanding or bonding them, but I will be doing that tomorrow before work, so expect finished pictures.

Here's a frontal pic (with replacement Wampa diamond piece):

Better look at the side:

With mando's: boxy = foxayyyy~  8)

XD but in all seriousness they came out exactly as I wanted. The edges just need to be sanded and bondo'd but im going to do that with you Saturday!

Also cut them out, but dont mold them until Saturday! (If I learned anything yesterday at the armor party its that I would have messed up a bazillion times without Mereels help XD but I remember everything we did, so I will be able to help you out and get everything perfect!)

Those chest pieces look very cool, I'm definately liking the boxy look of them.

Thank you, I wanted to stay away form being curvy, as I'd like to stick by K.T.'s version of Mando's ^ - ^

Thank you so much guys.
I'm glad to be getting such positive feedback from everyone on here about them! I wish I had taken pictures of the step-by-step I had gone through since there seems to be an interest. I already gave my original templates to Arch (who is totally more awesome then I could ever wish to be!~) but if there's anyone who wants to know what I did, I'll whip them up again easy, and photocopy, just message me.
