First Kit Ideas and Plans
« on: Oct 10, 2019, 06:54 AM »
Spent this last Saturday in LA at Kaden'Dha Runi's working on sizing my plates and transferring  the patterns to the sintra.
He took this photo to send to others in his Clan to get eyes on it.

The suggestion was to trim 1/4 inch off the outside so we did before doing the transfer of the patterns.

My plan is to make a basic set of Jango armor and to use articulated Legacy back plates. I'm inspired by the color scheme of the Gar Saxon armor from the Darth Maul Son of Dathomir Comic. I like the Dark Grey, Silver-ish, Red, Black, Yellow. The Shoulder bells have a nice Mythosaur like shape on em.



This set will only be color inspired by the comics. I want to apply for my OM and don't need to create extra hurdles right off the bat with meeting unnecessary CRL's .

UPDATE!

WELL 2020 was a year! I broke my back on February 1st. Couldn't walk for a week. Did my own rehab at home. Thank you Covid! I am very glad I have a pool and hot tub to rehab in. Healed up great, then promptly re-injured myself in Aug rescuing my best friend who broke his back and fourteen bones at the river slipping on the rocks! He has healed up amazingly! Hooray for titanium!

SO it is June of 2021 and I am finally looking at my pile of partially cut sintra and material in a box and am thinking...
I am almost finished with school (three weeks to go)! But after that!

School is taking up six to eight hours a day, and then there's life stuff to handle during what's left of my day. My plan is to finish my final project for school by June 9... ish. Once I am done with school, I will still need to work on my demo reel. It would be totally irresponsible of me to pick up the armor project today.

BUT I wanna break damn'it!
I want to work on something fun and creative!

So once I turn in the last project I will have some free time to work on a project for at least a month before I need to buckle down and get working on my demo reel.
I figure I can work on this in phases.

Phase 1 - Soft parts and armor to pre paint/weathering ready (armor attached?)
Phase 2 - Helmet acquisition/build
Phase 3 - Electronics and weapons acquisition/build
Phase 4 - Pre app dialing in of everything (Fitting, paint, weathering)
Phase 5 - App begins

Thankfully the Vegas crew has not been idle during 2020 and 2021. I've been following everything by skulking in the FB feed and I plan to get more involved now that I am physically able.

Expect to start seeing some WIP photos in three week!

Phase 1

1- Make a mannequin of myself by doing the trash bag, tshirt, duct tape thing and making a stand for it
2 - Start patterning out my Vest and make a prototype out of duck clothe (Could be an alternate Vest for Vegas heat)
3 - Also pattern out the upper for my flight suit
4 - Make the flight suit top
5 - Make the leather version of my vest 
6 - Acquire more sintra
7 - Work on the cutting and shaping of my armor
