I have procrastinated long enough on this build. I think I have a idea of what I want it to end up as, but this will be a fluid build. I have already been inspired by a few of the builds here. I bought a NME Neo Guard bucket right after they released. Time to dust it off.

The beginning of the chest armor. I think Iíll have to remove the curves on the bottom. Iím going to build this up.

Three dimensional, layering up sintra?

Yeah, I am playing around with different ways to give it depth and mass without adding too much weight.

Nice!  I ended up using drill bit cases for my swtor Jedi.  These look great!

I like the way my shoulder bells came out





I think I may trash the upper armor and start new. I just lost the feel for were it was heading. I do like the way this looks though. I may use it as inspiration.

Would something like these be approve-able, I was looking on etsy for backplate ideas and ran across these?

It does fit the 3D armor styling, but I believe the center diamond can't be there on Late Crusader kits, there can be an outline as seen in reference images but that diamond is only seen in modern kits. 



Also this style looks too much like modern plates sewn together into one piece with the two chest plates and an ab plate.  Collar plate should work.  Look at Fitz LC kit for an example.

I would heavily reference the Late Crusader reference images for your build and examples of what LC kits look like.

Thanks for the quick response. As I looked more at the chest piece I came to the same conclusion. Too modern, but I like the idea of a hard collar piece.

Edited my post above to show a reference image and more verbiage.

With the help from a few people on FB I was able to completely redesign my chest piece and I am taking it a new direction.





Here is the third or fourth set of templets I made up. I was unable to find a good reference of them online. Hopefully this will inspire more people to torment themselves with one of these builds. LOL




Everything lined up nicely and there is enough extra material included to allow fine tuning to my body.













The gauntlets come next, I went old school and used toilet brush holders for the base. I love to incorporate found pieces into my builds. I will need to add some reinforcing to the yellow pieces, it is fragile as is.

I made this a few years ago, Would it be acceptable in this era?




I have started building the jet pack, the base is finished now for the fun part... Greeblies

Best to find a reference image from that time period when creating weapons or blasters for your kit. 

This blaster looks very close to Din's blaster which would be post imperial (PI) era.



I suggest uses a differ blaster for your LC kit.  Here are some options from SWTOR.  If you find a blaster referenced that is super close to your blaster than use that reference here in your WIP so the AP team can see it.
