Minor update...

Please excuse the rough sketch here  :-[ but his is the concept for the back view (back plate design):


And the final template for the back plate/kidney plates designed using the WOF templates as a guide (with modifications to match the styling of the chest plates):


I also have the shoulder bell template cut out of poster board and will be cutting these out soon and posting pics for a sizing check!  ;D

:laugh: Thanks Vod!

Yeah, well I usually convert the entire thing to vectored image in Illustrator so I can do the tweaks easier, but wanted to let everyone know I'm still workin' on it!

I have pretty much my entire kit in various stages of "Doneness", I really want to get my Buy'ce completed first, Soft parts, Plates, accessories, with at least 1 weapon (Blaster pistol almost done) in the middle, then the other at the end!  ???

OK, got the template for the backplate made...

So here is my best attempt at shooting it, please excuse the wonky kidney plate and really bad photography here!  :-[


...wow I need to clean my mirror, LOL!  :P

So how does the sizing look? It may need to be moved up so that the neck line is a bit closer to my collar, I will know better once I rebuild the flak vest, right now the bottom tips of the kidney plates sit about 3" above the top of my belt.

An additional note, segmenting the kidney plates actually adds some nice lower-back flexibility to the back plate!   ;)

OPINIONS PLEASE?!?  ;D

I got mine in about a month ago, this thing is awesome!  ;D
Considering slightly modding it by either covering or replacing the top flaps with leather ones just to change the look up a little bit so that it doesn't look like a "stock" Think Geek pack!

BTW, love your kit WhiteCrow!  8)

I has pouches!  ;D

Threw together a couple Boba belt pouches using the WOF templates on TDH:

Nice thing is that the fabric was "pre-weathered" (I found a 600 thread count sheet in the basement that looked like it was used to drag wood around  :laugh:)

I am also currently remaking my flak vest out of the same fabric, my first attempt was too short and the fabric had too much give (It's being modified to fit my stepdaughter who is Shriekhawk age in the Verd'ika Corps)
The new one is Jango length with the Boba shoulders (Kelan Ord style), I am currently adding the original fabric that I used on the first flak vest to the sides to allow for a bit of flex at the side attachment points.

Next up... Flak vest! ;)

Flak vest completed (Mostly... :P)

Finished up the sewing on my flak vest last night...

Front with neckseal:


Side shot:


Detail of the side closure I had mentioned in the last post, the lighter material has some give which will allow for a bit of flexibility once I get the velcro sewn in...  ;D


...And that how a bed sheet gets a new life!  :laugh:
