FOREARMS - Improved:

 

Per UKwraths advice, I trimmed down the thickness of the end of the forearms.  It definitely fits much better now.

BICEPS:  I AM GOING TO POST NEW PICTURES

 

I laid out the untrimmed biceps components.

Using a sanding table I quickly sanded off the extra.  If you do not have a sanding table, I highly recommend you get one.  It saves a lot of time and makes it much easier to shape.  Also, I used some of the excess material to make the inside cover strip that will hold 2 of the pieces together.

Using Superglue, I glued the first piece of the bicep (long side) to the strip.  Used magnets to hold in place for a couple of minutes.

Next, I glued it to the other long side of the bicep.  I used the sanding table to ensure the 2 ends were straight and flat so it makes for a clean line between the 2 pieces.

 

 

Next, I sanded down the greeblie.

Then using a heating gun, i shaped it to the insert on the bicep where it will be placed.

I then superglued it on.

Next, i used white industrial strength velcro for the connection of the other 2 pieces.  I cut it too length and installed the rougher side on the outside piece and the softer loop side of the velcro on the piece that faces out from the bicep.

It closes easily.

 

 

All finished....minus cleanup and final painting.

THIGHS:

 

The thighs came pretty well trimmed with most of the excess material already removed.

In order to make the front of the thighs look consistent in width (i.e. the right side joint is in the proper position, as well as the overlap joint on the inside), I trimmed a minimum amount of material from each side of each front piece.

60986498_10217848989443644_7063872895721

 

Once trimmed, I did a quick test fit with the untrimmed back of the thigh.  I marked specific locations (forgot to take a picture) and trimmed only the outside seam piece that will butt joint against the front part.  I used the sanding table to get the 2 edges as close to even with each other as possible.  At this point, I used painters tape on the inside seam to temporarily act as the joint strip.  I do this so I an mark where I need to trim the top and bottom of the back thigh piece.

I then superglue the abs strip on the inside of the outer portion of the thigh.  I place magnets on it for about 5 minutes to allow for good adhesion.

61218164_10217848990203663_6854603040880

 

I trim the top and bottom pieces for a smooth line between them.  Then another test fit to determine where I need to cut the overlap for the inside of the thigh.  Once cut and trimmed, I added the velcro.

Next will be to add the greeblies (clips).  Then once all the other armor is done, I will perform a test fit and trim more off before painting and strapping.

Anyone know where I can find a build thread or where to purchase the big gun shown in this picture?

A resin cast side holster clip (or whatever you call it) came with the KB Props Kit.  Is there somewhere I can get a metal one or one that will hold the pistol?

One you want here

 

Works great and it's just a matter of adding a couple of screws to the side of the blaster/s
