Had to torso up to figure out the final placing on my torso mounting and figured I may as well go all the way.   My first time wearing all of the armour [except the abs, obviously].   Forgive the quality, they are off my wife's phone.

Hey Zophar, don't know if this was answered earlier, but what did you use to attach the shoulders to the torso?

I'm doing a late crusader as well so I thought I'd just ask you.

Gildarts - I used leather strapping.  I have a leather strap from chest to back, and another in the center of that making a T that goes to the shoulder

Kardos and Silkon - Thanks vode

I meant like bolts for the shoulder (bells?) or some other detachment method.
Sorry, I don't have the terminology down yet.

Ah, I used 1/2" long 1/4" diameter hex bolts that I either embed in the fiberglass or epoxy to the surface.  Depending on the placement either acorn nuts or something prettier for the visible spots

A "small" update:


I have a long way to go to reach my initial vision, but finally decided I was good enough to apply for OM.  First order of business will be finishing my grey flight suit which should look much better with that set of straps [I had darker straps for the back suit which didn't stand out nearly as jarringly], get the thigh-ride tool pouch set up for the left thigh to "balance" the blaster on the right, and ge the shoulder lights mounted better.











Since these pictures [three days go :-P] I already tore the armour apart and completely redid the mounting plates out of aluminum block; my experiement with the epoxy was great for prototyping but didn't hold up to any serious wear.
