    Building FemShep

    The back is almost done, I built the collar part but obviously it's not complete without the weapon holster thingies. Then I'll get to detailing and strapping (AND LIGHTS!!!). Might be radio silent for a few days though, I've got lots of work and study lined up for the next few weeks...

    Building FemShep

    I agree. Velcro has never been reliable for me. I think clips and strapping will do better (especially because they're accurate to the suit anyway!), it's just a matter of making sure the stress of wearing doesnt rip them off! I finished the back part this morning. I have to free-hand the...

    Building FemShep

    Quick update! The chest is taking shape now, and it fits great! I think I got the scale down too. I'm continuing work on it today and hoping to have the back done by tonight. I'll be having the front and back separated at the sides with either velcro or clips so that I can easily put it...

    Building FemShep

    Thanks for your support! I've got a small start on the chest so far, it seems scaled correctly but looks funny, though I can't judge too quickly until it's built - might just need a good spray of heat to shape up! Will update with pics soon!

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    Final update for Scorch "1.0". It's finished and kicked ass at Sydney Supanova this weekend! I couldn't update much before deploying the suit as I was rushing to finish final touches the night before and had to get it all packed. I managed to fit almost everything into two suitcases except the...

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    *Blows dust off thread* UPDATE!!! Scorch is at 95% completion. The only things left to do now is the neck seal, ab plate, securing pieces as well as the shoulders, and of course weather the crap out of the rest of the suit. Here's some juicy progress pics! There's just under two weeks left...

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    Quick update. I'm going shopping today to grab more hot glue and some foam. I'm considering experimenting the backpack tubes with thinner eva foam, rather than pvc. I'll also be drawing up a template for the neck seal and ab plate, they should be super easy to make with 2mm foam. I played some...

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    Thighs, shins, and half of the backpack done! I'm just about finished with the building process of Scorch, soon it'll be onto sealing and painting (and lights!) Shins and thighs first. I had to put inserts in them due to my fat legs. The good thing about commando armour is that unlike the...

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    Next update! We're over halfway there now! I made the elbow pieces and handplates, including the left hand with the vibroblade piece. No vibroblade yet, as I'm trying to figure out what to build it out of. But it's happening. I was even thinking it could have a blue LED somehow. Again...

    That'd be awesome, thanks FANGS! I don't mind using a template if available though, as I'm super tiny in size and usually everything turns out fitting too big on me. ;)

    Republic Commando Delta 62 Build

    Next update! Today I scored a lucky day off work, so it became "pauldron day" (as well as "yay sleep in" day). The motivation kicked in when @Sierra107 and I finally sorted a new work space for building, this time with a comfy chair! Because since the earlier updates where I was building the...
