Many thanks to Keely for helping me out with getting my chest ab collar and back plates shaped:



Silver marks on side of top chest plate are where I am planning to make the first trim to.    Will do that, put the straps on, and then plan out the trauma plating.  I know the edges need cleaning up, and I have plans for that.  I also know there are some final shaping tweaks to make, but part of that I need to trim the top of the collars to flush mount with eachother before I finalize.

Feedback welcome :)

Looking great...that backplate shaping is awesome; I wished mine looked that good (back when I had one---I got frustrated, and ditched it for a duster, lol).

Thanks!  The backplate involved the use of an oven, me laying on the floor and a friend basically laying hands and both forearms on it to get all that curve.  could not have done it on my own.

Ok, there is the original sep WIP. lol not sure if this was on the one in the clan or not. nice looking back and seeing how far you have come, seeing as we have 4 more members up and coming with this same design i figured brushing up on it to learn something for myself would be a good thing.  my next questions
1. the shnees you just updated. how did you manage the curve you currently have? debating something similar for the brother.
2. suggestions on the shoulders and attachment, are you doing the TK style strapping and leaving it attached to the chest and sliding into it later?

This is the legacy subforum one lol.
1: 200 degree oven, with sintra on a sheet pan, 5-8 minutes, until VERY floppy.   I put on my boots and a pair of jeans, Keely put on a pair of work gloves and I sat on the floor and she pressed the pplate on my leg.  Same thing for back plate, but I wore a hoodie.

2. For my new shoulders, I am doing a single strap connecting to the strap that connects my front and back collar plates-- if that isn't enough, I'll add a strap that goes around my tricep.   For the originals -- I attached the shoulders to the top chest and top back plate and put it on like football pads.

Physical weathering and primer on chest plates


First coat of copper -- center will get blue over the top once again, edges will remain copper, all will get blackwash

Thanks. The hope is that these plates are an upgrade in quality over the old set in ever possible way. But still keeping the same basic layout and paint scheme.

Plates after blue topcoating, and blackwash -- still have some black drybrushing to do for some scorching and clearcoat before I can assemble.  Also need to attach Murran Cog to the backplate, and Chest Diamond -- it's in primer right now lol



Jedi temple guard mask that Sep found in the rubble of a building he blew up -- Jedi either force ghosted or escaped, whereabouts unknown -- needs some drybrushing and clearcoat before it goes on as a shoulder plate. (gold Detailing by Keely)

Assembly of the torso.. kitted up by myself, and some hasty pics.  Some things that just need to be put on better, and some to do notes:
Probably need to add bicep straps to the shoulder plates
couple of the strap sections front and back need a little bit of shortening to keep the plates alligned.  The back is not sitting where it should be due to speed and lack of flexibility on the part of the wearer.
Biggest problem with any of the alignment is I haven't run the straps from back to front yet on the bottom plates.   Once I kit up with waist items I will need to see where/if that bottom back plate needs a trim like last time. Looking at it, I suspect i may not. If so, probably way less than last time, but that was always in the plan.   
Paint the rivets, all the rivets, ALL THE RIVETS...
Weather the softparts more to match the weathering of the upgrades.

I know it's not all on me perfectly right now, and I know the job's not done, but after 2-3 weeks of having a pile of plastic on tables and in bins, I really wanted to see that turn into armor last night.  Overall, I'm really happy with where it's at, and with the improvement in quality over the plates these are replacing.  Will definitely post side by side app style photos when it's all finished. :)   

Oh right... pics:
