No real update, just testing out a few things, bit of boredom...plates prob aren't in best position as they are just holding on with Velcro...adjusting bit made plates fall off. Also had to use phone as remote for camera

They look great there to me dude. Only reason to move them higher up would be if you want more of a subtle bucket knod to the PrePro1 bucket. Outside of that, I don't see a reason to move them.  :like:  :like:  :like:  :like:

Thanks mate, I thought maybe a little higher...plenty of time to decide though. I gathered up the ears I have, ripped off the bottom right to allow me to get some accurate measurements to try make some aluminium ones.

Just have to order some aluminium bar now
Been looking at pics....the plates need work...the weathering on collar needs to blend in with amount on helmet
I'll find black Wookiee braid...think black with be better than the light ones...better contrast. Dark green canvas cape/ poncho as well

After looking at pics from other day was thinking ....aluminium in centre of chest diamond...if allowed and also a sigil for chest armour

Thinking about this as a sigil  for right chest plate....area inside blue circle....taken from an axl Rose tat  :laugh:


Next  dress up day  :laugh:, will have plates secured better, and chest lights added....maybe gloves and a gauntlet loosely attached

I like it.  I made a custom sigil as well, but I think yours fits the bill as far as styling goes.  Going to change the colors at all or leave it like the picture?

Thanks guys, I don't like the green....or the grey beneath it. They blend together abit too easy. The weather is gether better so I can slap on a better paint job, the last one was half hearted trying to get motivated.
The sigil I'll use save colours...may add abit of black to outline and add something small subtle like Fetts
The blue circle won't be included....just what phone had

White background with the main body of the sigil being red would fit right in with the standard protector logo colors as well. Might be a pretty neat combo. Mi'ix and I both have one

G'day all, no real progress on kit, lathe came in so had a little bit of play time
The size isn't the same, the diameter of the stock aluminium was smaller than the model rocket....just practice and learning though
