My second WIP
« on: May 31, 2013, 09:44 AM »
I have started a new build and this one i have done my own plates.  My first build i had bought a vest with plates and just repainted it.  I could use some help with the shape, size and placement.  Please feel free to offer any suggestions.  the armor is 6 mil sintra and the vest is from Sidi Ren http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=62756.0

Size looks Ok ;) but the gut plates needs to come up a bit  :rolleyes: might have to trip the inside of the teeth of the chest plate in order to more it up

Riveted plates?  Awww yeah...  Try and preserve the silver color of the rivets.  It'll give your armor a certain pop that'll look great.

To be honest, I keep looking at the pics and I am really digging the way it looks, Primer grey plates, black vest, silver chicago screws.  I think a little weathering and a saber burn will look pretty good.  I will probably add another color for some contrast but It is growing on me.

I don't think it needs to come up... As you can see Jango wears his even lower than that...


And the spacing doesn't need to be exactly the same between all the plates...
Here's how mine look:

*the vest is a bit loose on that torso but you can see the distance between the plate varies a bit...
