    Jul 8, 2010, 12:42 PM - Knee armor build #1

    I decided to build my own knee armors. I cut them from pvc and heatgunned them into shape. bondo fill and bondo glaze plus sanding and then added the battle damage plus steelwooled them.

    More pics in the coming but here is what i have so far.

    I might make runs of these cold cast/regular/whateverClick image for larger version.

    They are being molded right now in silicone, probably to be casted in urethane or fiberglass, depending on whats going on.
    Im going to probably get aluminum powders this weekend for CCing them as well.

    Clearly in need of a paint job but here is the primary pull.
    Next up to clean up the pull of excess material.
