    Yea!

    Good job man.

    Keep it up. The yellow stands out a bit. I would add some dirt blemishes.

    Either way it rocks!

    Superb craftsmanship!

    Yeah the yellow is a bit bold. I will get a finer brush and touch up with the chrome, then I will dirty it up once I get the sticker on it. then black wash and dull coat.

    Leave it out in the rain for a few days. Is that Sintra? How did you do the dents? Looks nice.

    it is sintra like material different brand. I made the dents by boiling water in a big pot, laying the armor in water for a few seconds, then while wearing gloves I took a big Marble, and a CO2 cart. and pressed into the armor with all my might. then I reheated it a little and smoothed out rough spots with my fingers, While wearing gloves I used leather gloves. and then quickly put it into cold water. Worked slick.

    I have not gotten to making my back armor yet though because I need an extra set of hands.

    Is that Jodo_Kast armor or his templates? 'Cause that armor looks familiar! Nice job on the painting and denting man!
