I have a Revan that has been used in the past. It needs some TLC.

Iv read through all the build threads so have picked up some good ideas and run with them!

Please let me know if you see i'm going off track.

Cheers!

I started with the undershirt.

Long sleeve skivvy, i cut the inside of the collar and threaded sthough some thin foam to give it some stiffness

Going by the height of my armour, I have then used Paracord to get the piping line across the chest.

Vertical Drape..
I brought new material so i could colour match for the abdo armour strip.
I ironed the measured pleats into place, makes sewing easier (not much straighter though)..

HINT: pins put holes in this kind of material so iv taken to using Bull Dog Clips.

roughly what it will look like..

 

* can you please confirm that the Red material on the abdo sits on the ring straps as shown it the picture?

and also does the Red material also go around the back onto the kidney armour?

 

Thank You!

Bridges:

Chest Armour and Back Bridge:
I don't like sewing Vinyl !!!
I measured everything and drew the fold lines ect

20180717_203416.jpg

because it was so thick to fold and hold while sewing, i had to adjust the width.

20180717_203746.jpg

So there are a couple of small strips, i decided to leave them there, i dont mind them.. but i can cover that with the kidney armour

Skirt, Black Sash and Cape:  I'v made a couple of changes to fit to size, hemmed ect, but nothing really to show!

Still trying to work out this hood and capelet, ill get back to you on that....

Cheers!

So far this looks great!

On the capelet part, just remember that it is not pleated! It is bunched with some layered drape-age, but definitely not pleats!

Also, where did you get the shirt?! That looks perfect for it. May need to grab one for myself.

Awesome thanx!

The capelet in the picture came with the kit...

I'm sending myself grey trying to work up a new one.

I'v managed to get the hood so its fully enclosed and will velcro inplace to the inside of the cuirass

to keep it in place, so the piping on the shirt can be seen.

Im working on the gathering/buching today..  Ill put up photos of progress for your comments.

I got the black skivvy from Best & Less for $12.00. I got a larger size to try and get the "shirt sleeve" effect.

Happy to send one if you dont have have this shop!:smile:

Strange, I never saw a notification for this! The color isn't bad, but I can see a lot of spots where the paint ran, the can created splotches, and it looks like the surface has dimples. I would recommend a repaint.

@DarthValkyria 

I should have said that the paint i have is a Hammered effect, so is kind of supposed to look like that..

although i just spayed it very quickly and yes it has areas where the paint has run.

I just wanted to see if the colour was appropriate.

The color is fine. If you want to kick it up a notch, you could always to a light dusting of antique bronze (like from several feet away) to help tone down the orange in the copper. Not necessary, though.
