Here it is ladies & gentlemen. :cool:
The first part of the costume is finished with 3D printing after 3 months, sorry it took this long. :oops:

While the parts where being printed, in the mean time, I started working on the top leg armours due to the absent of them in the original files.

I used a 16cm/6.25 inch PVC pipe, cut into shape, heat gun to bend slightly out & to fold the top bits in a little. The top strap that connects to the belt is stitched to the pads behind, which those pads is bolted into the armour while the bottom straps that goes around the legs is through the two holes, the two middle straps are looped into the armour itself & velcro to the other side. Worked out how to make it 100% practical while remaining true to canon, this is an example of what I'll be doing to the whole set, make it where no strap is glued to the armour itself but make it where it can come apart easy with a whole strapping/modulation system if I need to repair or replace any part in the future if needed. This costume is to be made to last a century at minimum to be used at conventions, charity works with the 405th & hopefully fan made films.

Now onto prime filling & sanding for the second part, this will take months. :lol:

UPDATE:
Forgotten to upload my progress, got carried away trying to get parts done. Here's what I done so far, finished prepping elbow, knee & mid-upper arm armour pieces, just need to bolt to some custom-made pads I am going to make once all done with other pieces before the final stage of painting & seal.
Currently layering carbon fiber pieces, adding structural strength to the back-armour side pieces that I currently resin together on last night. :cool:

MARINEGANG!
Those parts are looking swell, very crisp. I guess you'll be on to painting soon?
Not til around or after Christmas at this rate, gotta sand & prime fill shin & shoulder pieces after working on back piece that I'm doing now, just waiting on the resin to cure to add more layers of carbon fiber sheets. Have to wetsand the front chest piece yet that I had to fix up a mistake on then make soft pads with some sewing for all the pieces. Also gotta figure out how to attach the knee & shin pieces as together mechanically. Long & slow process to make it look high-tier Hollywood production, sooo much to do.
