here's an update showing the start of the new articulated ab plate(hopefully it'll work...i think it will), how the whole thing looks on a 6 foot tall man and an exploded view of the ab piece....
Dancin_Fool said:Wow this model is really coming together! Looks great, nice edge flow. It could use a few little tweaks in the chest to line up some of the edges a little bit but that's just being nitpicky. I know how hard it can be to get the edges lined up just right.
Saber1138 said:Robo3687, and Sharkhead for the sides, and back of the abdomen each section should be layered to achieve all of the correct movement, with the Spine being a fixed object. I have began building my MK III abdomen this way for this exact reason. With each pieces overlapping from top - bottom vice versa, but connected side by side in ring formations, and attached at certain points.
Nobody said:I can't wait for this! A couple Of questions, are you going to release the parts as you finish them or finish the whole model first and then release everything? Also are you going to make a MK VI chest piece?
tompkins420 said:anxiously awaiting ab plates....just one question, will the abs articulate?
sharkhead7854 said:Heheh, looks like we're goin' about the same pace!
foxymcfox said:I was thinking of making the side pieces noncompressible and attaching them directly to the sides of the codpiece, so that the "slack" is taken up under the chest. Then the front and back ab plates would be articulated for bending forwards and backwards.
It's not the best method, but I feel it could solve a few problems you guys are having with the sides.
Stonewall said:I totally agree with the front and back articulation, but coming from someone stuck in this particular fiberglass cage, side articulation is a must. When I look at the armor, I think that the armor does have full compression articulation on the whole midsection of the armor. I mean, it's only logical.
Oh, and I can't wait to build this suit. It'll be so much more comfortable than my current one
Keep up the good work!
