Here are the latest pics of my Cap suit.
Just finished doing a stunt show which was a lot of fun.
New stunt shield as well, welded back handle parts and such to make sure she stood up to the abuse of a 10 lbs Thor hammer hitting it, and X23 claws slashing at it, oh, and Ironfist throwing punches and kicks at it. (MvC3 stunt show) Also, the star is machined into the front of the shield, not a separate piece on top. I originally had a stunt shield with the star on top, but during one of the rolls across the carpeted surface, one of the star ends got caught and it ripped the star right off. At that point I knew I finally had to break down and figure out how to groove the star out.
The suit is a mixture of designs, mainly based off Ultimate Alliance 1, but with design hints towards the TFA suit, and the Avengers suit.
I'm currently working on a TFA suit, and my own version of the Avengers suit as well.
suit held up well until I cracked the aluminum star on my chest the second day of the show. I ended up just gluing and spraying it silver. No one even noticed.
