Paper mache and resin/fiberglass will work. If you search these forums for pepekura builds you'll seem some helpful build logs.
Armor Construction / My First Build - Still a WIP
« Last post by Darth Ambrosius on Jul 18, 2019, 07:21 PM »
Hello all.  I am looking to become a member and wanted to post images of my armor thus far as well as a few accessories I made to go along with it.  I actually met Wolfin Sylvermane at Alabama Comic Con this year by happenstance as I was trooping around and he urged me to get on the forum for some suggestions from fellow mandalorians.  I am aware that there are some spacing issues on the chest plates and that weathering is needed on the flight suit and I will be posting images of the weathering as soon as I am done with it.  Apart from that feel free to criticize or offer suggestions freely as I am looking to make this suit epic.

now to pics...

Vest plates:

Full Suit2:

Whew... I will be making another thread fairly soon for the rifle and the accessories I made like the tusk necklace, grenade, and a rancor tooth Beskad I made (it is pretty unique).  As I said feel free to criticize and offer suggestions.  I am looking at submitting an app as soon as possible.  Also since this is my first thread ever (I dont do anything online hardly at all) let me know if I screwed up something in the thread or if you cant see the images.  Thanks!

Warning-- Once you buy a 3d printer you will spend hours looking at models that you want to print out.

My back log is currently sitting at around 12 pieces. I have been even thinking about buying another printer. :laugh:

Weapons are the only thing that are allowed to travel between eras, and they can only travel in the FORWARD direction -- i.e. you can have a an EC weapon on Crusader, but not a Crusader on EC, or you could have a Crusader Blaster with Modern/Legacy, but not a Modern/Legacy blaster with Crusader.

Awesome! Thanks! I am happy to hear that it's an option for me!

Been a while since I posted here, but hereís what has happened. I realized I forgot to add the knee darts to the knees, so I grabbed them to find this. Upon looking I saw that the gloves somehow took off the paint, so I have to repaint the knee. As for the gloves the silver it took off knee gave me an idea which was to paint the rubber part sliver with enamel which was a bad idea because after a day is was still super tacky and didnít work so I was about to throw them out when I had an idea which was to use WD-40 because I used prior to get silly putty of a silicone band and it worked like a worked like a charm but still need to some touch up on them. Currently the it the process of repainting the stripe.

How they look now

As for the holster its painted and looks much better than before and added the mythosuar to front buckle

As for the gauntlet I added the fake opening and some other detail to it, then added some primer to it see what needs to be touched up

Question: My back plate is made of ABS how will react to being cut with tin snips is it brittle and will shatter or softer like styrene?
Great looking vibroaxe.

I havenít seen many kits with ABS plates. Are you planning to firm with some light heat or boiling water ? Following with interest :)

That paint job is superb.  :o

That looks pretty good. Have you weighed it? I'd be curious to know how much one of these 3d printed jetpacks weigh!

When I ordered it, I was told 4-5 lbs but I'm going to figure it out for sure soon

Little update
I should really start my own thread haha, but I thought it would be helpful to keep it all in one place for anyone else who is in my position in the future.
I have my Creality CR-10 Mini coming tomorrow along with 1kg of PLA filament. I went for the mini in the end for the bigger build size than the ender 3, and it turns out the mini does have a heated bed so there wasn't any need to splash out for the 10s just yet. I've gone and downloaded Meshmixer and Ultimaker I just need to link them to the printer. Hopefully once the bed is levelled and I've got a grasp of it all I can get on with my first 3D project   :)
