Stretch919 said:Here's a question about the MC Thigh armor... the pep models only cover the green part of the armor (spans the entire length of the thigh on the outside, but only a small section of the bottom on the inside). However, upon looking at some reference pictures, you can see that the thigh pieces have a black pleated-looking section on the inside that spans the entire length of the thigh. Has anyone attempted to re-create this? If so, how'd you go about it, and how'd it come out looking when you were done?
the black part isn't actually armor, its part of the undersuit. if you make it as plastic armor, then it will be wierd to wear and just kinda uncomfortable. I'm attempting to make an undersuit using a molded full mannequin of the person I'm making it for. There will be more posts as I figure everything out.
Also, you can go to the fabric or craft store like JoAnnes or Micheals and buy craft foam for it, and just cut and shape it to what you want it to look like, then hot glue it to the inside of the thigh. That will fix the sound of your thighs scraping together, and it will be easier to make instead of plastic.
Ok, so I'm editing so I don't have to double post. When people talk about bondo and resin, are they interchangeable, or is bondo the bondo body filler, and resin just what it is? Also, how do you avoid lots of the unsightly bubbles that the other guy got? Is it just because he went too fast, or did his resin harden on him or what?
