I'm looking forward trooping with you commander!

BTW does that siliconegluefillerthingiedingie has a name? Looks interesting.
It's called Tec7. I think sikaflex has something similar.

All taped up and nowhere to go!

Things are a little off, but everything is just duct taped in place. Feedback appreciated with that in mind :)

As you wish :)

Here's a shoe. It's an Adidas sneaker covered with vinyl. I think I just googled "Clone boot tutorial" to get an idea how to do them. I took some trial and error to get the pieces to fit. The shoe laces are silicon "kid's laces" or something from Biltema. I might need to remove one more of them because it's a pain to put on with the leg armors on.

And the spoons are just done according to the steps here (although I have to admit that some of the pictures are a bit confusing): http://imperialsurplus.com/carmor_legs_spoons.html

A spoon. Note that I have taken away some more on the upper corners. This is because it stuck to the shin otherwise and took an insane amount of force to remove.

If you want a picture or more details on something then you know where to find me :)

Some minor things done lately.

Made an antenna mount out of a mono audio connector. Didn't want to use magnets in order to get it more secured.

Image

Here's the antenna mount. I dropped it in from the top in order to get less pressure on the glue below. The male connecter is mounted a couple of mm's into the antenna to compensate for this.

Image

And here's how the antenna looks

Back with TD

Mounted with wingnuts

And I painted some of the smaller stuff. Just Citadel paints and Biltema spray.

Looking good!

Are you going to make your own kama?
I'm currently in the sewing phase of my armor but I'm having trouble deciding which material to use for my kama.

No idea currently. I need to go down to Stoff&stil here and see what they have. And then I need to match it to some spray from Biltema. Good thing that they are quite close to each other...

Take a look at their wine red twill. Nice texture and a close color match.
I'll probably use that one but I want it thicker/heavier.
Hopefully the salesmen at Stoff & stil have some ideas how to solve that.
