Kote Du'Caryc Upgrades (pic heavy)
« on: Apr 28, 2019, 08:15 PM »
Hey everyone, I'm an OM from Ciry'Kurs clan and I'm in the process of upgrading my kit. Originaly I built it out of 22ga steel without the skill to back it up because I wanted to be edgy and hardcore. Now I'm replacing most of the pieces with sintra pieces. I've been at it for a little while and I have a thread going on my clan's page, so this first post will be pretty dense. Bear with me please.

So this is my armour pre-upgrades



I started with the legs and right gauntlet






Then the handplates




After a long break I got to work on the left gauntlet. The cannon is hinged and is held in place by magnets when extended. I'm going to try it for one con and if it proves to be too much weight I'll just put a smaller cannon into the track there it sits while extended.








Used a lot of gamecube controller parts








Eventually had the legs and gauntlets done and primed





Today I shaped my new chestplates, shoulder plates, and backplate. I never actually finished my old backplate and it never sat right, but as my kit includes a pack it was never enough of an issue to fix, but it was something I wanted to do right from the start this time.






I also today drew a template for my new blaster, which is heavily based on some art I found (trying to contact the artist now)



And that brings you up to date. Tomorrow I'm planning on starting painting and weathering, then next week when I have my sewing machine again I'll get my new vest made and get work on that stuff.

I'm super impressed with the way you've moved from your original kit and adapted what you've learned into your second kit! The weight difference is going to be incredible! Keep us in the loop!

Does it count as a second kit if it's the same armour but upgraded? Because this is probably the third round of upgrades since I first rushed it out for The Force Awakens.

Got the shins attached to the boots and was able to salvage the straps from the left thigh and transfer them over but I'll have to wait till Sunday when I get my sewing machine back to do the other one. Also got my collar plate finished and primed and started repainting the bicep plates.

Painted my left gauntlet and tried them both on. Really happy with the result, they're both comfortable and secure!

Tried on what I have done today! Gotta extend the vest a little, but other than that no fixes needed. Tomorrow I'l sort out the backplate attachments proper and sew the last two straps for the lower bicep plates and then I'll be con ready!

Thanks a lot! I just checked out your WIP and your kit looks awesome! It's all ready now, just waiting for my fiancee to get home from work and help me try it on!

Ottawa Comicon is over! Still waiting on a couple pictures but I'll post what I have for now!

My next tanks will be weathering the new soft parts to match my armour, making a new pack, and building my new rifle. After that I think I'm good for a while!

Looks great!

Make sure you add a little weathering to your soft parts to match the armor and it will be perfect  :like:

What I would do, since you've done a major overhaul on your kit is to check with the Ruus'sol of Canada, Rin V'khari, and clear it with him. Having an App team member also look at your progress will be important too.
