Rick's armor WIP
« on: Feb 17, 2018, 11:38 AM »
I printed out the large Jango templates and stuck them on my duct tape dummy.  No one around today to take pictures on me.  I know it's not ideal, but any comments on the sizing?

Sizing is really difficult to tell when its not actually on you and you can't see it in person. I'll be following this thread to help as you go. I'm really interested in what your concept will be too.

I think they're going to be just a touch wide on you - but it is just a hunch, can't tell for sure till they are on you :)

Thanks to you both.  I expected this answer, just trying to shortcut the process a little when I had time.

Also if you have what you will use for your Flak Vest, this will help tremendously for sizing them the way you want.

The flak vest is on the dummy.  Its grey.  You can see a slight difference in the grey vs silver of the duct tape at the arms.  I'll make sure I use it when I can get some help taking pictures.

Ah ok, yeah you're right, I see it now.
But yeah, also shape it to your body, but not super drastic, still keep it like how boba and jango are, because when its just sitting on you it's gonna hang /slightly/

And another step in my super slow build.  I finally got around to getting someone to take pictures of the templates actually on my body.  Pardon the ripped back plate template, I didn't notice that until I pulled the images off my phone.




My figure is on my belly button.  And yes, my girth belt covers the bottom of the vest.







Any suggestions?

rlo, your front templates look pretty good.
Sizing seems to be spot on, and your spacing looks tight.
Not sure on the back, but I can't make a proper backplate to save my life, so there's that...

How tall are you? The stomach plate needs to end where your belly button is, so you may need to adjust your print settings or just modify the plates yourself. You definitely want to make sure the armor looks proportionate to your body. Same goes for the back plate. It needs to end much lower on your back. You are doing a great job, though. And it's good you're posting here so we can see. It helps. We'll make sure you look good, though. It always takes trial and error, but we're all here to help.

Take a look at this post by Saz for some tips on armor: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=51027.0

Thanks, Tek.  I'm 5'11", but pretty round in the middle.  I used the 6 foot Boba templates.  I'll check out the post.

You're welcome. After reading many of the posts in that link, it seems like quite a few people add another plate under the stomach plate. That seems to help a lot. Maybe try that without resizing the plates? Your chest does look good - just not quite to your belly button. But the width looks spot on.

Following with great interest.  Looking good so far.  Us larger folk have special considerations.  A normal template doesn't take into account our extra dimensions so elongating the templates will go a long way.  Extend the chest and ab about an inch each and it should help eat up that space.  The width seems perfect, though.
