Thanks for the input. I have been consideeing removing the last plate on the shoulders.
I need to walk the line between looking like heavy armor And still keeping most of my range of movement.


One other update. Iam redesigning the chest piece. After reviewing the reference material, I've decided the diamond is not present in that period and the chest piece should be one piece not two.

If anyone has anything to refute this please let me know.

I've decided to consolidate everything into one thread. here are the updated pictures.
-note-the chest will be split in two for a better fit/ease of movement

Helmet

Chest

Shoulder

Back



A question for everyone on weaponry. Are miniaturized versions of vehicle weaponry acceptable. i want to make sure my idea is OK before i start cutting up the stuff i bought.
I want to make the shock wave generator that is a Basilisk droids main weapon.

so basically the "head" plus a rear section.

so trying to re cut and fill the bucket to meet the new design failed miserably. too much bondo and i cant get a good, clean ridge for the forehead.
i decided to rework my original model and reprint/fiberglass.
i accidentally came across a slight variation trying to get the model to line up.
what does everyone think?

Its been a while since I have posted anything. For that matter its been a while since I've done any significant work.

Bucket-still needs lots of work.

Started on some mock ups for chest(used existing pieces) and leg/thigh.

Leg without top piece


Leg with top piece
