Yes we are lol :)

looking great Saz

IMO I prefer to keep patterns symetrical unless there is a story to go with the differences (a shoulder bell was from a deceased family member etc) but it all looks really good and is comin along nicely :)

A few people agree with you on that, so I'll get round to painting it once I have gotten some helmets done, the weather is mild enough to finish off my fiberglassing and I have a standard helmet to box up for a trip to Germany, with a second one bound for Germany in the trimming stage and one destined for France to be cast.

Busy day today, but since my services are no longer required with wrestling, I have a lot more time on my hands.

Which reminds me...

Nice to know :)

Anyhoo, I've managed to find time to fiberglass the chest plates, so will be ready soon with the cold cast remedy :)

Bloody dremel's gone and died on me :(

Ah well, just had to buy a brand spanking new cordless one instead, as they say in those l'oreal ads, I'm worth it! :)

First coat of cold cast has gone onto the chest pieces, will allow to cure before putting the second coat on.

I am at the stage where I think I might attempt a helmet cold cast, I'm nearly finished with the 10th Krayt and after that I am dealing with the people who are saving, so I can probably use the Krayt mold.

It is quite exciting :)

Well my Dremel turned up, God bless Amazon prime! Not quite Optimus Prime, but close!!!! :D

Going to post Druan's bucket, then glass the last Krayt, then put the second coat on my chest plates.

Right,

The 10th Krayt bucket is now out of the mold and I've made a start, I've put a brass cold cast and painted it into the dragon, I'll be trimming off the overspill when it cures a little.

A second coat to ensure that I'll have something to sand back and then I'll be going mental with the aluminium :)

I've put the second coat on my chest plates and I'll wait for them to fully cure before I sand them.

Pictures when I get time :)

Looking good there Saz. I'm especially interested in seeing how this comes together for you since I'm a bigger guy myself. Have you learned anything in adjusting for size that you wish you'd have known when you started (and can pass on)?
Soldier, Mercenary, Terrorist, Freedom Fighter, Pirate, Security Guard, Thief, Cop, Bodyguard, Assassin, Smuggler, Bounty Hunter... I'm all of these and more - I'm Mandalorian.

Hmm,

The only advice I can give you really is Match the plates to your body with a paper set first, once the paper set looks ok on you, then use them as the template to cut out your plastic.

It all keys down to the vest fitting you correctly, in fact I would say the vest is the most important part of the outfit, without it, you can't fit your plates, so concentrate on getting your vest right and ask someone who can use a sewing machine to help you.
