AVP Armor Templates By VinMan

Hey Do-it-Yourself Hunters.

I am working on a series of templates for AVP armor pieces.
Since I am doing the work, might as well make it available to all.

Please take note measurements are only approximate and will vary from person to person.
a dude 5'8" will not want to adjust down a tad. a dude 6'2" will want to adjust up a tad.

Use common sense and try them on to fit.

Here is the first in the series. As I continue the series I will make the others available as well.

here are finished photos of the Shoulder Bells cut with a Dremel from Sintra sign plastic
• primered in black Plastiidip
• painted in silver Rustoleum Hammered Metal spray paint
• washed with gloss latex paint and blotted with a paper towel to age
• lightly rubbed with silver Rub and Buff paste to add dimension to the pitted texture

Hope you like the results!

Sweet VIn Man, what are you using for material, plastic, latex, metal...?
A combo of a few things.

1) I have a few sheets of sintra plastic that when boiled or heated in an oven you can shape really nicely.
2) 5 gallon plastic buckets
3) large diameter PVC pipe

It may be a while before I get to working on them but I am trying to get the templates built so I can knock them out one at a time.

here is another

Thanks for putting these up. I wasn't planning on useing AVP style armor but trying to design my own and then putting them together wasn't cutting it. I am going to use these and modify them. Thanks Again ;)

That's awesome. I was literally gathering cardboard at work today to start creating templates. Thanks for reading my mind and doing all the work.
I am glad these are starting to become a benefit to those creating their own armor

Here is another

I do not claim to be the end all be all in this matter.
These are so subject to a particular set of screen grabs and any other resource material out there.
I only attempt to the best I can in interpolating these into realistically working templates.

This one was the most difficult yet
