Gildarts - I used leather strapping.  I have a leather strap from chest to back, and another in the center of that making a T that goes to the shoulder

Kardos and Silkon - Thanks vode

I meant like bolts for the shoulder (bells?) or some other detachment method.
Sorry, I don't have the terminology down yet.

Ah, I used 1/2" long 1/4" diameter hex bolts that I either embed in the fiberglass or epoxy to the surface.  Depending on the placement either acorn nuts or something prettier for the visible spots

A "small" update:


I have a long way to go to reach my initial vision, but finally decided I was good enough to apply for OM.  First order of business will be finishing my grey flight suit which should look much better with that set of straps [I had darker straps for the back suit which didn't stand out nearly as jarringly], get the thigh-ride tool pouch set up for the left thigh to "balance" the blaster on the right, and ge the shoulder lights mounted better.











Since these pictures [three days go :-P] I already tore the armour apart and completely redid the mounting plates out of aluminum block; my experiement with the epoxy was great for prototyping but didn't hold up to any serious wear.

Yeah, I need to get that tool pouch up and running to cover the left side but who are we kidding... the stories can't hit a damned thing anyway.  I heard one guy even goes around in armour made of plastic!    ;)

Finally got around to getting the LED heartbeat pulsing built for the left gauntlet.  The blue "displays" are EL panel and glow nicely, now the LED is more than just a dummy.  [click to play video]




Put together a quick How-to over on Thingiverse in case anyone else likes the idea.

Been focusing on enjoying my kit and getting some new recruits done, but finally threw some time into a repaint.   Since I'm the only person in BC who has or is working on a kit which doesn't have any red on it, I figured I may as well join the cool kids:


Chest:


Bucket:


Shoulders:


Our powers combined:



Shnees got a major structural rework since they keep flopping on me, so they were in for a full repaint.  I'll be doing base weathering tomorrow and get them repainted to match this weekend, then on to trashing the existing ab plate and making one that actually fits the chest plate indent correctly!

Marched in the Vancouver Halloween Parade today with GnarGnar and the local Garrison and fond this unflattering picture posted to facebook by random pedestrian who enjoyed the parade.   I need a sash that fits the Late Crusader aesthetic.   Suggestions?  I was thinking maybe an extra-wide leather belt like a weightlifting belt.




I also dropped and cracked a shoulder plate while de-kitting today, the ab plate never fit right and the back plate was only ever supposed to be temporary until I built a backpack to replace it which never happened.   Maybe it is time to retire this kit entirely...
