Armor taking shape
« on: Sep 25, 2009, 04:12 AM »
My girlfriend Jen (Sahirate on the forums) is helping me make my armor. Here is what we've molded so far...

     

The right shoulder warped badly so we're going to have to cut a new piece out to mold. Still waiting on my BDU's/flight suit to arrive from Australia.

Yep, looking good so far!  Have you tried heating the warp out of the shoulder bell?

Haha Not yet we haven't. It was just so late when we did all this work.. I wasn't going to try it. I think I just stretched the material when I was pulling it out of the oven... it doesn't even look like the same shape I cut out! I'll try to reshape it though today sometime after other materials are purchased. =)

Also posting helmet progress thus far. First two pics are just with it put together wtih tape. I never took pics of when I fiberglassed the inside but I do have progress pics too! =) Enjoy.

Alright so I've gotten myself into gear and started working again on Tom's armor. Helmet is finished minus paint job. All the hard stuff is done now! Lol. Here's a beginning to finish look back!

Helmet!





    I had to cut the left ear cap in half to stretch it long enough to go from top to bottom. Filled it in with Bondo and sanded it smooth. Trimmed the rivet in it to blend and looks like its one solid piece now! =D

You can see in thsi pic the right ear cap looks like one piece. =) I thinks I did well ^^

armor and vest:


The coloring is off because I have a crap camera on my phone. It's black on black but the settings make it look purplish.


Sword:


Nothing to do with Tom's armor but I found this today at a thrift store. Goodies to mod!! =D

Got some more helmet updates! There are a few lil smudges and uneven lines in the paint that I'm still going to have to go back and fix but other than that it came out great! The color is a little more burgundy than the pics show.. its not a true red. But ENJOY!
