Hi all!
I've decided to start a second kit, 'cause I'd like to have a kit that has mobility.  :) I've come up with an idea to keep this kit super light, but still iconic. Name for this one is Kebiin Jay, which means Blue Jay.  8)
The idea for this one is to do it in a Boba style. Basically like a femmando protector but different colors and no jetpack.  :P







Molded the chest pieces using my tutorial here.

How's the spacing?
Chest diamond is underway, and I'm going to get another J2P for the helmet unless I can find a regular one small enough.  :rolleyes:
I have the pieces cut out for the gauntles but I was wondering; is there any other methods I could use to secure the hinge besides rivets/glue?
The knees have been bondoed and are drying right now.  8)

This looks great so far, I love it. Are you using Sintra? I've started a kit and cut out a bunch of my pieces today and am wondering what the best adhesive is. What did you use?

Thanks Tauriice!  :)
Yep! I'm using 3 mm sintra. JB weld is one of the best adhesives with sintra from my experience.

Sweet Sassy Molassy! I really like what you did for that style of weathering, subtle yet intense. Not distracting, but speaks volumes to the kit! Would you be able to PM me/post here/tell me where to go to find out what to do to get that effect? I'm going to do something like that to my plates when I make them.

Looks great Jay.

I am assuming weathering is layer of silver, layer of blue with bits covered up. Remove the covering, then apply a light blackwash.

The lower "teeth" pieces on the chest plates seem too long to me. They don't quite fit with the ab plate. I don't remember that being an issue with your current kit. It may just be the angle of the picture too since it's more from one side than straight on.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your work.

Thanks y'all!  :)

Would you be able to PM me/post here/tell me where to go to find out what to do to get that effect? I'm going to do something like that to my plates when I make them.
After a coat of silver, use a brush and dab on the masking fluid. Let it dry and paint the color over it. I use the back side of sand paper to rub it off, then follow it by a blackwash. After that I sand it a bit to get some nice scratches.  :)
Yes, at last she is done!! Got this approved two days ago.  :D
Here's some detail shots of the kit's pieces:
Gauntlets were made from cups, my clanmate, Keyascuro gave me the idea. I got four for 2 bucks, pretty sweet deal.  8) After that it was simply cutting off the bottom and putting some sintra together. Fits great and you don't have to worry about a hinge, just slide on and off.


Used WOF templates for the knees, and I still need to make some knee darts.  :-[


"Borrowed" my sister's old J2P helmet.






Y'all have no idea how much of a fight this thing put up. Finally got it to work, but sadly the tabs connecting to the collar weren't sitting right and had to be cut off.  :'(


I do intent on adding more detail to these.  :P

All soft parts have been weathered. (Except the neckseal).


This is the first belt I put on, then I put a thick brown leather belt over it with my other pouches. I tried this setup for the first time Saturday, and it worked great!

Some full kit shots:



Only upgrades planned are: details to shin tools, small wookie braids, and knee darts.
All comments/critiques are welcome!

Looks fab- great work!  Also loved the pic with the 'What a Woman Wants' sign- of course they want Mando armour!
