Max jacket. Cutting sleeve off

Postby Deaths Head » Wed Aug 13, 2014 2:20 pm

I noticed MMC has a lot of great info on the shoulder pad and jackets along with this forum as well but no one has posted any detail for cutting off the right sleeve that I can find. Also info on the Stitching and riveting etc for the MM 2, 3 FR jackets sleeve shop rag holder. Any measurements or pics would be great.

there arent any.

you have to figure it out yourself. madmaxcostumes.com may have a guide, but generally you're on your own.

the jacket with the shoulder pad already there; the pad isnt accurate. you need to find the crusader pad and follow the tutorial on mmc to make the correct one; and then research placement of rivets.

Take some screenshots from RW for the right place to cut off the sleeve. Also if your going for the southbeachleather jacket, the sleeve cutoff is incorrectly and the shoulderpad is crap. So order with full sleeve and without pad and customise it yourself.

Look at the images i attached. You have to leave a piece of longer leather so that you can fold it up to hold the rag.

yeah i should have said to leave your sleeve on your sbl jacket. i made sure to have them keep it on so i can cut if off myself. basically when ordering that jacket, ask to keep both sleeves and remove the shoulder pad.

Yea, now they even ask you if you want the pad or full sleeves in the orderform.

I've been wanting to make a MM costume just can't decide on which one. The clean MM one or the weathered RW or FR version. Choices choices choices...
