Biker Scout (WIP)

Post by Dankelzaga » Thu Oct 25, 2012 8:12 pm

Hey all! I'm just about there on my biker scout build. Unfortunately I'm now at a standstill though as my racing suit isn't finished and the seamstress is quite a bit behind schedule. I can't put finishing touches, strapping, etc as I don't want to be inaccurate with my measuring sans the suit underneath the armor. I've incorporated some of the Lancer standard items into my project, but a few areas I completed for standard acceptance. My goal is to be accepted, with working towards Lancer status after that as time and in some cases, money allows.

Hope to get things wrapped up and be an official dual-member in the near future. Wish me luck! :D I'm really, really happy with how my helmet turned out. I went with the MC/MLC version.

I also went with the 4 wider stripes on my back tank versus the typical 6 thinner ones. If they were intended to be rank stripes (versus venting) they happened to be the equivalent of my USMC rank E-4 Corporal.

I ended up having two different blasters. A hyperfirm model and a second lighter foam model. Figure I can dual wield when I get in a jam lol.

I have to add the coverings and such to the chest but as I said, can't really do any of the final strapping until I have the undersuit. I do have the cumberbund completed as well.

I went with the Sith Armor ones. I'm pretty happy with them.

Unfortunately at a standstill waiting on my black undersuit and vest. The 6 month estimate is now at 10 months. I just can't justify paying another vendor when I've paid for it in full from someone else. Everything else is completed and in hand. Pretty frustrating.... :mad:

Can I ask who you ordered the suit and vest from?? You can PM me if you don't want to post it. :wink:
