    thnx!!
    Your welcome, I try and be funny as possible, but this a serious forum, so theres not many chances to show evryone how funny I am......so someone say something, so I can reply with a joke or something.
    On a serious note, as soon I left this thread I went and tried my armor on, to see if it still fit me ( ), and to re-replace my crappy placement of armor, so thanks for making me intrested in trooping again.

    RBF - your cod piece on this thread looks great, i now plan to create one using a similar method. One question though, with the main plate being 'flat' (ie in relation to its own surface), do you have any problems with it being uncomfortable? What i mean, without being crude, without a recess on the inside, do you find you have enough room for 'everything'. boy this is a difficult question

    hope this makes sense

    ha ha LOL

    well I've never experienced any shortage of room really...

    depends mostly on how curved the main part of the armor piece is and how high or low you carry the cod... the higher it goes... you get the idea...

    hope that helps.

    RBF - thanks for the delicate answer to a rather awkward question

    Seriously man, you are the top of your league when it comes to costuming. All of us here on TDH could learn a thing or two from yourself.

    :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

    Well done man.

    my dremel tool with the drill... wich is not the best to use as slpashes of molten plastic start seering through the air hardening as they fly....

    I think the little circular saw tool thingy for it would work best.

    that's what I used to cut the wooden detail pieces on my hylian shield anyways.

    well it's not exactly top notch but it sure beats a bold but

    just a piece of plexi-glas dremmeld out and painted and then hung with iron wiring onto 2 carabiners that are attached to the girth belt.

    I had to figure something out cause my cod piece is a one piece construction with the girth...

    like I said... not top notch but it'll do... it doesn't hang perfectly horizontal either making it look even more uneven then it allready is... ah well...

    EDIT: one picture without... it's better with the plate imo.

    I built a Fett suit in the early 90's using fiber glass before I ever began surfing the net. I dug it out a month ago with the intent of improving a few pieces. This site inspired me to redo it completely. I am amazed at what can be done with trash cans. Great work.
