I see you have a minimum return edge in the torso, why is that?

Because im only 5ft 7 and quite slim, with a smaller return edge it allows me to heat and reshape the parts better without them cracking or buckling up Wink

... and yes MonkeyPaw the handplates are ABS with this build Smile

Elastic, always use elastic with strapping as webbing has no give - and *cough*, its screen accurate [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Nice clean work there Graham Smile

Are you going to need to trim these down at all to be able to walk comfortably in these?

After trying Garys legs on the other weekend i rekon i'll get away with leaving the thighs uncut (can hear Billy's sigh of relief!! Lol Wink) .. and just trim off the bottom of the calfs. Although i will take out the back of the knee on the thigh parts and some of the depth just for personal looks and comfort Smile

not just Billy mate. Good to see this all comming together.I trimmed the back of the thighs and the shins.

you can see at the back of this screen suit that the thighs and the shins are trimmed.I would add that they look more smashed than trimmed but this arrangement will really help your mobility.

Well had a good day with the Armour building today, so thought i would post up my progress ....

Thanks to Pete for the tip of making up a template strip for cutting the Armour pieces to size to take the cover strips! Wink

However, after several injurys ... im not too sure about his tip for the mental Neyodium Magnets!!

Anyway ..... first off i cut some lengths of ABS for the cover strips. I cut them at 15mm as i guessed by the time i had sanded them nicely they would be roughly 13mm. I then cut to length the pieces i needed for the Forearms and Biceps and marked them accordingly ...

I had already resized the Forearms and Biceps as i am quite small, so didnt want them to be too big for me ... i think i took approx 5cm out of the diameter of both ...

I put the Biceps together first by running some Plastic Weld down the seems to hold the Biceps together, before glueing the Cover strips with E6000 ...

They still need a bit of clean up work, and some more strips inside for strength ... but here are the finished Forearms and Biceps ...
