Title: 'Splodie Pack
Post by: TrooperJasher on Jan 11, 2014, 04:05 AM
I got the itch again... in my spare time (aka late nights, blurring into early mornings) between commissions and work I have been working on a crusader... and with her coloring, and the inspiration of this kit, I have decided to make her a demo expert... while I have a back plate made; I want to add a pack to store more explosives, and other necessities. Will also make a great place to store wallet, phone etc...

I started with a pep file, and yes it is a RC pack... and you don't have to start yelling that it's not the right time period... I know, I am using this as a base. Let's just get that out of the way.

Took me about 4 hours to cut, fold and assemble; I plan on coating it with Rondo this weekend, along with the other parts of the armor that I have pepped.

Personally I like the idea of the handles up, it gives a better area of the top, and a defining line where I can cut and have a lid, attach a few hinges and magnets for the closure method. Any ideas on making this look Crusaderish?
