http://www.flickr.com/photos/48594347@N06/4586117439/ not super great still needs adjusting and minor details but will work out nicely. working on the arms right now. modified Fetts templates a lil bit so that they looks a lil closer to the movie screen shots. not sure how to address the elbow. looking for pics to go off of right now. will post more pic later.
let's see if this works. i finished one bicep and forarm with what scraps i had left from the 5 trash cans. went roughly off fetts templates and the imax poster. tried to get as close as i could. still need to add the elbow and the pivot points and well make the other set and legs. but first i need to get more cans.
ps if anyone can let me know how to post the pics directly in the thread please lmk.. i have yet to figure it out
Quake there is a button on top of the textbox. It says insert image and you just paste the link and you're done
with flicker, you click the share this button above the sets and folders on the right, then click "grab the html", and then just copy whats in the quotation marks. then here, you paste that in the image board code.
if that works for you, cool, if you need any more help let me know and i can make some screens on how to do it for you. i found as great as flickr is to save all sorts of pictures, its crap for sharing.
THANKS themanwoaname !!!! you are awsome!
ok FINALLY got it.
here's the what i got so far....
this is my goofy ace test fitting and checking to see how the codpiece is fitting together. not alotta room down there.

But on a side note....I think you need to cut back on smoking.

hahaha thats pretty funny. forearm is looking awesome@ are wou going to make a joint for it?
Nice! I really like what you are doing with this suit.
ok back to the situation at hand. here are some pics of the forearms and the biceps and how they are riveted together. im sure this would help someone out.
forearm trimmed up
inside the forearm
inside the bicep
Definitely gonna want to clean up or pad those rivits they're lookin like they're gonna hurt. I'm planning to pad my own out with a foam lining (I'm thinking Craft foam but not sure how well it'll protect human flesh from unkind pinching scratching edges). That aside, certainly helpful.
Also, I was reading through another "trashcan armor" type thread on Mandalorian Mercs using sterilite storage tubs that suggested oven baking the plastic at 300 degree for ~2 minutes to get it maleable (depending on the thickness).
Also, bit of a recommendation for some of the "scraps" that are invariably going to exist (including, depending on the style of your can, the curved "lip" of can/bin/container. -You've got to make the finger-armor pieces out of something, why waste plastic?
I know there are methods of doing ity bity rivets, so I can't imagine the cost going up much. Anyone more familiar feel free to correct me though.
