    Impressive work, that must have taken you ages with the heat gun to get those curves and profiles. I think I'll have to give that a try. Thanks for posting.

    The Beans:

    That is very impressive the way you did that. Is it based the Rafal Fett template? I printed one out, but it looks like your shoulder tabs are longer than the template I have. This is the last piece of armor I have to make.

    When thebeans started the work on the back plate he used the WoF templates (my templates were still in work and weren't made public at that time). The shoulder tabs on the WoF templates are longer and wider to allow trimming and adjustment (or customization) to your needs, while on my template it has a fix shape, because I wanted a closer look and feel to the original armor.

    I made a slight cut in the plastic about half way through, then folded and filled it after with bondo.

    Looks absolutely great! Love the PVC work especially. Very motivating for someone who's never worked with it.. Very cool.

    Re: back armor sculpt almost done.

    Done some weathering via airbrushing with some blacks, tans, and a little rust in places, it's very hard to see by these pics, but it is much
    more visible in person. It also looks a bit darker in person.
