ukswrath[Staff] Posted October 7, 2015 Author Report Share Posted October 7, 2015 Accuracy update cont... Disclaimer - These accuracy modifications are not mandatory Biceps Another challenging area to update Starting with the pill boxes, mark and prepare to cut out recessed area like that of the chest and ankle. Now for the seam and ribbed locations. Locate and mark. Cut area indicated in green. Scribe and cut long seam Using a dremel or other remove section in red Using a belt sander and dremel or other remove return edges V notch (return edge removed). Note: Once I have an official name for this area I'll change the wording. Seem trimmed Using a file sharpen V notch giving the edges a sharp look. Check overall edge alignment Creating inner cover strip. This by far is the most challenging part. The entire seem needs to be covered, this includes the V notch location, greeblie buckle indent and return edges. I started by measuring the area the inner strip would need to cover and ensure there was enough room to glue. These are rough measurements. Once I have the final cover strip I revise the info here. Width Length Using left over cover strip material, measure and cut a section for each arm. Making some checks Locate the buckle indent. Measure the bend angles and mark the cover strip where the bends will need to be made. Establishing the areas to bend This is where it get tricky NOTE: Use heat resistant gloves. Using a heat gun, wood and heavy duty cardboard, concentrate heat to the bend area and shape them to the bicep. Note: This is my first attempt Not too pretty I must say Test fit To be continued... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
