    Im doing a project and just thought i would share it with everyone,this is my first build thread so for me it will be touch and go and see what happens.
    Im rebuilding some parts of the armour, its so far not going to bad, the shapes seem pretty straight forward enough. here are some screen grabs ive got so far, no pysical model as yet but i will be making one for the parts. so its still work in progress.

    hope everyone likes the build so far

    polygon count reduced on shoulder cups

    Some more modifications ive made too the shoulder cups, ive made things a bit more uniform and tidied the mesh up a bit for later on in the build.
    I always say that life is already difficult, so why make life difficult for yourself.:thumb:

    You are doing a really good job on this.
    I like how you are explaining your methods each step of the way.

    These renders look realy good. You will be running into many unfold problems which will men many eams. If you plan on filling them up, then it is of little consequence. Extract a wire frame from the model and removes the curves which do not help in forming developable surfaces. What software are you using for this. It looks really good so far. :)

    I think you mean the rounded edges / corners on the armour parts, don't you? I would simplify these areas a bit, too.

    Other than that, the work I see here is absolutely phenominal! WOW! Kevlary, it's good that you are on board! Keep it on! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Dreadfully cool!

    Although I really do not like the cylons (I was a kid when the first BSg was released, probably got traumatized by the swinging light serving as an eye:cry::p), your work is really great! What software are you modeling with?

    I love old school Battlestar Galactica! I prefer the old cylon's to the new version... what a classic villain!

    My next project is constructing the helmet and armor!

    Seems like Kevlary and me will be doing our armor in tandem although I have something particular with the undersuit planned for mine.

    If I can help with anything buddy, let me know!
