Default Crisis shoulder pads

Well I had this idea to give my Crisis Suits shoulder pads.
(No really)
I was going to call them the XV-911 and give them body armor also.
(seriously I posted on this awhile back.)

Well I worked up the first prototype shoulder pads.
There done in grids so I can work out a proper scale without having to mic everything.
So the grid show but on the actuals they will not.

So here is the ruff 5 minute prototypes.

Should be good. Will they interfear with the shoulder mounted weapons/systems?

just mount the railguns so that they point upwards! there is always an solution to a problem, no matther how difficult it may be. And if you cant see it, just leave the quiz for a moment and the answer will pop right up into your head like a fuggin explosion. :

No they are not in the way of the mounted weapons at all.

So no worries.

I will try to get a shot when I can of them and a shoulder weapon.

Thanks.


OH and almost forgot.
There is no glueing.
They fit very snug and hold well so you can take them off and on as you want.

Thanks.

I wanted them to look thick enough to actually stop bullets?
But I can use thinner plastic I have much thinner stuff if you think its really to thick?

Fire warrior pads are only a little thiner than this is so I wnated a little thicker to be stronger than theres?

But ok thanks.
I will check it out making them thinner.

I think that the thinkness is right on scale with the size of the Crisis suit. Keep on going. and let us know when your new Crisis suits from FW arive. I know you ordered some cause I believe it it you who wsaid that if it it cool looking then you can't help buying it. And they are pretty cool looking.
