    Sep 23, 2008, 10:26 PM - 2nd armor set (updates now in last post!) #1

    This first post is now going to be where I up my new pictures.

    UPDATE!!

    So I haven't been able to finish my vest but it's close. I need to weather it and possibly dye it. But I've got my chest, ab, and diamond armor attached so I thought I'd try my stuff on. Alot of my stuff isn't finished and doesn't have the correct way to attach them yet but most of this will be done this week. In the picture I didn't have my RF on my helmet at the time and on my gauntlets I didn't have my flamethrower attached yet. I have gloves on the way. I already have my cape but didn't have any way to attach it yet. Be kind as this is just a test fitting hahaha.

    p.s. the shoulder bells and collar were held on by tape and kept falling off when trying to take the picture haha.

    quick update on what I'm doing now. I'm working with the cod right now. kind of a pain to get the right shape but it's working out not too bad. It's heavy cause of how thick the styrene is but it'll be nice when it's done. heres what I have so far.

    Hey,

    That cod looks great!

    My only suggestion, and I'm definitely no expert, but doesn't the two rectangular pieces have fileted edges?

    update 10/12! cod is getting close to being done for the main shaping. After I'm done with filling the small holes I'm going to put the dent in the front then paint!

    Nice work on one of the more sensitive armoring areas. How did you make the dent? Heat source?

    Thanks guys. For all the dents I used a heat gun and made the certain spot softer. I then took a towel and pressed on the back to keep the shape and used a round object to make the dents. Then ran the armor under cold water to cool it down fast.
    Thanks for the compliments. It keeps driving me to do better.

    Update. I've gotten a few more things and have quit a bit coming and in the works. I'm currently making boxes for a functional ammo belt. The vest is coming along and should be done this week. Gauntlets will be on their way soon and I'll be messing with those. So here is what I have so far.

    The vest is from an actual cheerleaders vest pattern. I forget which one but I dont think there can be that many.

    That flightsuit looks like it could use a bit of AB weathering.
