Well, the templates were a bust, but we did find a solution.  A set of Rav Bralor plates from April Storm.

Pardon her expression,  I interrupted her episode of Criminal Minds.


Main trimming is finished, now comes trueing it up, and settling on an attachment method.  Might stick with magnets.

Looks pretty good! A little heat treatment to snug of the shaping on the collar and at the corners and you oughtta be good to go.

Work continues.



New gauntlets are in the works, as are new shoulders.

Work continues, again.  Been knocking things out in pretty sizeable chunks.  So, all the upper plates are painted, and steel tabs are epoxied to the back for the magnet attachments.

We need to do a few alterations to the vest.  She's lost a lot of weight since the measurements were taken, and the bottom was about 3" too short.  NOT a knock against Kraam Xyrati's work in the slightest, as the vest itself is of top notch construction.  We just goofed on measuring.



Photo dump of new gauntlets.


Edit: And now I need to remake the gauntlets.  She has suddenly decided she doesn't like them.

Wow...  REALLY negelcting my duties as chronicler for her build!

Not much has changed, trying to talk her into a set of new gauntlets, ones that might fit better.  Also trying to talk her into a weapons upgrade.

“Thread..?”
Yes, Master?

“RISE.”


It’s been too long for updates to this.  Not much has changed.  I’m in the process of trying to convince her into getting upgrades to her soft parts, mainly her belts.  Need to get pouches made for her, and some holsters for her blasters, blades, and a radio for the comms network our clan is setting up.

So, lots planned, nothing set in stone.
