Still new to the scene here, but thought I'd go ahead and put my WIP out there. Most softparts obtained, but need to do some adjustments on leather belt to accommodate girth belt.

-Couple of setups with greeblies for a breather.
-Armor based chromed, masked and base coated. Some more sanding a little weathering.

All suggestions welcome and appreciated.

I'm no app team nor OM, so take what i'm saying as a personal opinion.
First of all, I really dig your soft parts. You did an awesome job. Was saying you're missing one waist item, but saw it's already planned.
At the moment there are no CRLs for post imperial Mando (that I know), so it's hard to tell what's working and what not, (so usual problems collar/no collar, cod or not) but I'd say your chest piece might be slightly on the little side.
Anyway your paint job is awesome  :like: :like: :like: :like:

Thanks Kurz, I appreciate the feedback.

Yea, I know the CRLs aren't in at the moment for kits like this, but just couldn't myself.  Just happy to be making something, haha.

As for the the chest pieces, I wondered that too. First print I had was too long to accommodate a girth belt, so I adjusted the z-scaling.

My pleasure, hope it helps  ;D

You know what? After I saw your picture without the shoulder armor... Maybe it's not the chest plate too small, maybe the vest is too big... I had a similar issue, my shoulder plates were too far from the collar and my Ruus told me that the vest should finish where your shoulder does and use shoulder flaps for the plates.
I think that around the shoulders and under the armpit there is a little "exceeding" material... might be that?



I mean, if that's the case, that would completely change the proportions. (Sorry for the bad quality, I'm on my phone XD)

Anyway since there isn't any actual CRL for this period, you should work with your Ruus

Nice leather soft parts btw, where did u find them?

Ah, I see it now. I actually put the vest together myself a year ago when I was 70lbs heavier. :8): I could make additional straps on the sides to make it more form fitting.

As for the leather parts, the belt and larger pouch I got off Etsy from Negative Dreamer Props. The smaller pouch set came from a military surplus store in Lithuania. Pouch was sandy brown originally, had to re-dye. Girth birth I made myself.

 Thanks for the heads up, I'll be sure to get in touch with my Ruus.

The Ruus'alors are being trained in Post-Imperial CRL's at the moment, and they have been shared around with recruits. Here's a link to a imgur album of screenshots of the new CRL's

Awesome, thanks for sharing this.

I've also reached out to help confirm that I am on track. Better safe than sorry.

I've already started correcting the flak vest, should have it hemmed in the next day or so; crazy how different it fits all around with such a small alteration.

Really liking the look of that helmet, Vod. Big thing I'm noticing is that your chest armor looks too small. Your helmet looks like it's wider than the chest armor. I recommend looking at pics from the Mandalorian as a reference to how wide to make the chest armor.

Many thanks, Ruus. Appreciate the feedback.

I see what you mean now when I look side by side.



Looks like I'll be reprinting, I'll take measurements with vest and belts on for a better idea of the sizing. Could use a little width;  might have to print on its side for that.

Thanks again.

That chest piece is way too small. You should definitely print it in pieces. But I love where you're going

Thanks, stoked to hear Iím heading in the right direction.

Getting file prepped to run now. Luckily, I donít have to run in pieces: my print bed can accommodate the scaling.

Will post as I get the corners rounded out on the chest piece and flak vest.

Got both the chest and abs scaled correctly, running chest first.
Another 15 hours left as of now. Will post as soon as I get it assembled.




Meanwhile, I was able to get my breach charges sanded, painted, wired and magnetized to the holster. Each click activates a different repeating timer setting.

Preciate it!

Chest piece is finished now. Can really tell how bad it was undersized when side by side. Live and learn :boba:




While waiting on the abs section to finish, I got some quick sketches down to help plan the accent colors. I think the rustic red adds nice contrast, but the blue works well too. Also planning on making a canvas legwrap for the right shin.



Still working out the details, but I'll have it figured out when it's time to paint.

Iím assuming you printed your charges? If so, is the file you used available online? Would love to know which one for use with my own kit.
