  1. Shoulder bells: (Left - unfinished right - finished)
  2. Hello there, my amazing friend from the north! I am so glad to see you here.
  3. Thank you. “But wait, there’s more...” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. These first images (if they upload) are how I made the template for the dome for the helmet, and beginning of shaping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have made the entire suit out of steel. I am trying to get better at posting the images, as well as posting them in order that I made the suit. I think I have the images to size, and I will try to post them a.s.a.p. Thanks for looking!
  6. These first photos are the toes, heels, and my first attempt at the ankle (tarsal?) piece. Since then, I have changed the piece to a more accurate one, but I wanted you to see the process. https://photos.app.goo.gl/gmVjzHZWro5CvMon8 I hope this link inserts the photos, and doesn’t stay a link.... edit: I still suck at inserting photos. Sorry, just look at the link ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. I started building my TFA Phasma out of steel in September (?) 2016 after seeing the “Silver Stormtrooper” in the movie, and knowing the character was female. I was going to make a kit supplied by Shawn Thorsson, but noticed that I would have a major problem with inner thigh chafing that would make a Chrome paint job a real issue. I have a background in blacksmithing and making wearable suits of armor out of steel, so I thought to use my knowledge base to make my own Phasma. My biggest issues have been that there are no templates for this suit (or there weren’t when I got started), so I have had to create EVERY part of this suit first out of a paper template, and then cut it out of steel and make it as accurately as I can. The other issue I have is that I am only able to work on this project a few hours a month (and my dad’s smithy is about 80 miles away from my house), so it has taken me almost 2 years to get where I am. I will post some (but definitely not all - I have tons) photos of my build, and I will try to have them in some organized manner. I’ll post the images mostly in the order that I made the pieces. ** right now I’m having a deuce of a time uploading ANY images, and I may have to try this post again at a later time
  8. Fingers! TFA fingers are a fully covered tube which makes grasping things, and bending the fingers difficult. TLJ fingers are a plate that goes on the back of each finger joint. TFA is modeled after C3-PO fingers TLJ looks more like medieval armor. Just something I thought you’d like to know
  9. Thanks for your updates. I enjoy keeping up with what's going on in a galaxy far, far away.
  10. Just my son and I having fun in the front yard this morning. Enjoy the day!
  11. Thanks so much for the help. In reference to the "trolling" , I meant in terms of "strolling" ... but thanks for understanding.
  12. Hello, Hello to you all! I'm loving all the interesting info on this site. I already have my AP armor, built, and trial run tested. Now I'm spending all of my free time making it "wearable" without all of the armor pinch, and trying to make it to fit my pear-shaped body type (darn you anorexic actors from the '70's) I'm struggling with finding out how to "snap attach" the belt to the armor now so that it doesn't slide up and rip off my ab buttons. Are there any suggestions? reference pictures? Should I just epoxy the belt in place? Thanks for your interest, and you'll most likely see me trolling on this site when I devote the time away from repairs... c'ya!
