Re: Field Medic Clone concept and build

I recommend you do NOT do fiberglass. The weight alone will not allow you to troop for any length of time. My kit is ABS and it weighs 40+ lbs. If you cover yours in glass, the chest piece will weigh that at least. Just an fyi. Fiberglass is NOT a great idea for full sets of armor.

Re: Field Medic Clone concept and build

I am familiar with Pep an it will need a TON of work to look accurate. Unless your concept is blocky and square. Pep for a Master Chief is totally a different realm of costume building than a Star Wars costume.

Re: Episode VII costumes

Just know that if you do the work yourself, make it look accurate, it wont cost you a million dollars. We did Mike's Vader for under $1k. But we made almost everything. Taught ourselves to sew. Made all the soft parts and bought only a couple parts. A inaccurate helmet and spent some time making it ...

Re: Old Rex Armor... Under Construction

Emphasis on Subtle. Just put some black acrylic in a cap and mix it with washer fluid or window cleaner (dollar store) and start with that.

Re: E-11

It 24 hrs for full cure time. Usually tacky and will hold in a few hours. Depends on the temperature at the time.

I would still use super glue. There is no need to use E6000. And its very thick, so you might get a lot of "oozing" from between the parts.

Re: E-11

I love E6000. It sticks to everything. And is removable if you F up.

Those are resin parts. Cyanoacrylte (fancy super glue) works AWESOME on resin. And is strong as all get out. IF you dont have the patience for E6000.

They were in the clone wars cartoon so I would think they would be under both groups.
