    Really? those are some clean looking cuts for a band saw. I did a little aluminum machining, for two different places. I worked for a sub-contractor of Mac and worked for Briggs and Stratton.

    Yeah, there's nothing like handcrafting something is there? Gives you a really great feeling to stand back and say.."I made this with my hands!":mrgreen:

    What you've done is nothing short of astounding. Taking a card model template and building your own suit by hand. That's something to be proud of!:mrgreen:

    Hey Red

    What can I say, this month has been crazy and doesn't seem to be letting up like I'd hoped - finally getting my new house in order. Bank holiday though over here in UK on Mon and Tues of next week so I will try have a bash at putting the new Ceta together.

    Sorry for the delay guys :)

    BTW for the other parts any help will be most appreciated e.g. if Ekuth or someone could get me some basic models together of the other bits it would be most appreciated :mrgreen:

    Yeah, I have the same story... life has been nuts lately. I do a little bit of cardmodeling on my breaks at work (hey, gotta keep the hobby alive) but that's about it.

    I still haven't even finished my build of the Ceta chest... it stares at me from the top of my monitor. :cry:

    I'll see if I can break out Metasequoia this weekend and bang out the rest of the bits. My my count, we need the armbands and the boot tops, right? I think Red already has done the belt "buckles". If not, let me know and I'll include those.

    No promises on the time frame though! sign1

    Hey Ekuth - long time no hear :mrgreen: The 3D stuff will be a real help.

    No worries on the time scale m8 - still busy as hell, just really want to bottom the chest ATM so I can move onto other things (got a few more things I so want to do), and that's down to me - lazy sod that I am.

    BTW Red - the sword will be a real help too.

    Regards

    Paul.

    Belt

    Hello again I found some stuff to compete the belt :mrgreen:
    first the belt is a hospital gate belt ( you can also find it on luggage it could cost you more that way )
    the black that I have covering the gate belt is from a hydraulic store
    It is normally used to cover hydraulic line this is the 3" hose covering it is all black on one side and has stencilling on the other
    inside the belt squares is some black foam to help them stay in place :twisted:
