I love the new armor! Your plates are shaped so well and the colors you chose are great! Keep it up!

Thank you Saba

Hey Vercopaanir,
Thanks for asking I do have a small update.

So I painted my blaster black so I could see what places need more sanding. I'm also working on a little kals vibroknife for fun. I will be adding the mythosaur to the hilt of it. I also have a few questions. I was told by my ruus that I can't use elastic for my holsters, what other material would work well? Also I'm was going to try to make my gauntlet out of a PVC pipe. Is this even possible? Am I crazy?  :laugh: what is the main material that you guys like to use for your gauntlets? 3d printing? I have also been considering using the bo katan black series helmet for my kit. Is this excepted? Or allowed? I was thinking that it would be easier for my first helmet sense it's already smooth so I would just be sanding off the paint. And I would also need to make the inside fit my head. What do you guys think?

Blasters look great, knife is progressing nicely.

I made holsters from leather, the process is actually pretty easy but if you're not feeling like it, you can make integrated boxy holsters on thigh plates like you see in TCW Mando armor. The whole assembly can be done from Sintra; line the gun pockets with a bit of EVA to keep the pistols steady and reduce paint damage.

PVC tube gauntlets are totally possible; the trick is to account for the more cone-shape of human forearms. Cut the two halves apart by cutting out a wedge to adjust the two openings' diameter. There's undoubtedly a YouTube video of people scratch-building gauntlets from PVC pipe and Sintra.

Using a Black Series helmet as a base is totally acceptable, and the BO Katan helmet would be a great choice. Check out tutorials on the forum and online for making adjustments to meet CRLs - there's not a lot needed.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Second son!! Great idea about the blasters holster with eva instead! I had not even thought of that.
