My lbf is done! I'm so proud of him!
Take a look at his blog http://tkloriand.blogspot.com/ to see pictures!
The first forearm is ready for glue! This is exciting! The modelling iron I bought is working well, though I may have to turn the temperature down a bit, I think it can go smoother if I lower it to about 180°C.
I have again faith in this project!
The forearms needs to be trimmed, as they are way too big for me. I have to take off some of the lenght, but I'm not sure how much. I also have to consider if I should take off some off the width.
This is how is looks at the moment:
My handpates are done! Me and my dremel are at the moment best friends! The corners by the thumbs where a bit difficult to get smooth, because there was almost no room to make a return edge. But a dremel and some sanding paper does miracles!
Weathering? Nah, just polish. :)
I used my dremel with a diamond cutting blade and later a sander thingy.
It fits me, but I may have to trim it to be able to kneel down. Just want to try it with the shoes first to get the measuring right. :)
The boots I'm considering
The white boots not available in my size
I have finished my lbf's neckpiece too, and I think he was happy about it. I will wait and see the armour first before I make arms, because I want to hide the seams under the shoulderguards or the breastplate.
My lbf's top, missing arms and lower edge.
My top, it fits! :)
