My Scout Gen 2 armour build

Hi all, been a lurker for a while whilst starting on my armour and decided to post my progress. I've 3d printer a Mandalorian armour set before so I'm quite used to the additional work and the end result is always amazing after all the hard work.

Anyways, I've decided on the Gen 2 Scout Armour as seen by Sarah Palmer. So far Ive got both shoulders, forearms done and one thigh. Had to make some mods to the thigh as I measured somewhat wrong hah. I'll use the same mods in the other thigh to keep consistency.

Helmet Im still undecided between Noble Team Carter's helmet which I have started or an Anubis helmet or even the Scout helmet, Ill decide later once all the armour is done.

Question for those with full sets, mounting wise, do you use a strap system or mount the armour to your undersuit via velcro etc?

Thanks, Ill keep posting.

Awesome thanks for the video and info, I'll start thinking about this process while my parts are printing.

Hah not biasd at all! Your helmet does look cool! I have a foam template for the helmet and I've thought of doing it foam first, see if I like it before I commit to printing one.

The tutorials and your video is very helpful and make it very easy thanks for that. Question though for which I didnt see covered, what did you do for the forearms? Short buckle from the suit to the armour piece or velcro to the suit?

The forearms have a slit in the narrow part with a bungie that pulls it together. When I slip it on, the bungie extends to allow my hand to go through, but then the forearm fits snugly on my wrist. It it not Velcro's or strapped to anything, it just stays by being snug.

On one of my other costumes, I cut a square piece of foam (about 1" thick) and glued it to the inside of the gauntlets. It's pressed up against my forearm and keeps it snug so it doesn't slide or twist.
