Kiltedlion's Legacy Armor WIP
« on: Nov 05, 2017, 05:59 PM »
I decided to copy my WIP to this forum page to get some feedback since I am building a legacy suit.

Been awhile, but finally got a chance to get back to my kit. I have finished and strapped up my suit, (except for the codpiece, I still need to work on that) and tried it on completely. I see that I have a lot of work to do.






I definitely need to trim my thigh and shin armor. I am not to fond of the pauldrons. I think I might just give up on those for the time being.

Like this... without the pauldrons.

I also have finished the holster for my blaster. Just need to finish sanding and painting it. I also added the Dagger I won in the raffle from Megacon to the holster. Thanks Drake, I think it looks great.

 
I also think I need to take in the flak vest. I have lost weight since I had it tailored. It still fits my chest but it is loose around my waist. Please feel free to point out anything else I may not have noticed. I would like to finish this up and make OM soon.

Flight suit is generally baggy, also it looks like the stripes ont he sleeves don't line up at the seam, but that may just be because the fabric is folded up and away.   I agree, ditch the pauldrons, after that you may need to move the shoulder plays up a hair. 

Agree on flak vest tailoring, particularly on back picture. it doesn't tuck well into waist items.  Also, the sleeve mounts on flakvest for shoulders may be a bit too long.

 Pull your ammo belt up higher towards middle of girth belt.

Torso plates and jetpack look great.

Agree on trimming shins knees thighs.  Need a couple of inches between each of them.

Personally i like the pauldrons. In fact I may be making some for my rebuild on my kit.

The stripes didn't line up with the way I was holding my arm but they are on the seam. Thanks for the confirmation on the legs. I definitely need to re-evaluate them and trim them up. I also appreciate your constructive criticism on the placement of the belts... wasn't quite sure were they needed to lie.

hey vod,

Looking great. Question for you, did you dye your girth belt? if not, where did you buy that specific color thread?

Hey Burt, great to hear from you again. Actually, I used my spray paint to change the color.  Then hit it with flat clear coat. Hopefully, it won't bleed to badly lol.

I finished my codpiece and just need to attach it to my belt and flight suit


I also took a Disney Imperial Binder and repainted them


I just need to add some foam to the insides for comfort  :D
And I made some grenades for my belt

All I really need to do is get my flak vest and flight suit taken in and tailored so that they are not so baggy and I just might be ready to try for OM

While waiting for my flight suit and flak vest to be tailored, I continued to place the foam lining in the binders.

I also made some chance cubes and a case to put them in. Just need to attach them to my kit.  :D

Thanks Vod, I found the box at Wal-Mart. It was in their office supplies section, for $0.88. It was originally about 3" deep. I cut the bottom off to the depth you see and made a new bottom out of 1mm Sintra. I lined the inside with foam and painted and weathered it. I may put a belt clip on it to slip it on my belt.  :D

I like the chance cube. Really fitting!

 I re-read your thread, you don't like your pauldrons, have you considered trying the legacy templates out to see if you like those?

Thanks Burt, I have thought about the legacy cauldron templates but it isn't really what I envisioned. I am playing around with another design. If I am pleased with them I will share them on here and my WIP. By the way, I really like your new breastplate... I like the nice clean lines of it.  :D

I finished tailoring my flight suit and vest, attached my codpiece and trimmed down the leg plates. I think I am ready for OM
