Where did I see someone posting a brilliant 3d print of a glove-plate support? It was like a three legged table, but upside down, and the legs go through your glove and are glued to the plate? Or did I dream it?
Suddenly remembered I spent all that time last Spring taking Blender tutorials so I didn't have to ask for help knocking together simple shapes like this, and built my own. Printing it now to see how it goes.
This weekend has been pretty much perfect - I got a load of the outside work done (paving), did a load of domestic stuff (went out with family to See Art And Appreciate It) and I got some time on the armour. I've now printed and assembled:
1 Left Shoulder Bell
1 Left Bicep
1 left glove plate
1/2 Left Gauntlet.
I've surfaced (with bondo) all bar the gauntlet, which isn't finished yet. I've printed off my glove plate holder and fitted it. It works ok! I've primed all three pieces, and sprayed them chalk black for that animated palette look. In the background of this pic you can see the Mando Armourer breastplate I'm making for Mrs Dim. That got a bit more bondo and sanding this weekend too. AND we took the dalek out for a spin around Science World (in the rain.) Weekends this good are a rare treasure and I appreciate it very much.
