Navik Orade's Body Armor
« on: Nov 11, 2010, 02:59 PM »
Currently, I'm working with some sintra (no idea the thickness), but thus far, I've got all the plates cut out. You can see it below.
I guess I misplaced my diamond. Hmm... gotta find that.

Front:


Back:


Color scheme for my overall mando is basically the German flag. Black, Red and yellow. You can check out my WIP thread for my helmet to give you a better ides.

So what I'm thinking here is the following:
Black plates, yellow shoulders and knees, and something to tie the red in, probably on the black plates. Maybe a few clone war stripes running across it.

I'm thinking one running vertically down my right shoulder, and another running across my chest about the same level as the diamond.

Not too shabby. Sizewise, how do they measure up on you?

They look like they measure up ok. But, of course, I can't be certain until the plates are bent.

I actually had to look through my post to see whether or not I mentioned that. I guess not.

Yes, I will be planning on red gaunts as well.

It's looking really good so far, and all your cuts look really nice.  Your color scheme sounds awesome as well.  I can't wait to actually see these painted.

This is just my opinion, but I'm a stickler for aesthetics. I would made the knee armor red and the shin armor yellow. But it's your preference, of course! Either way looks fine, it's just I think it would look more balanced if the colors were switched.

I also love how you're using the thigh armor depicted from the Star Wars Insider magazine article! Awesome!
