    Take a look at some of his knee armor and you will see by the time he is finished there will be no seams

    I would assume some welding, grinding and polishing will take place?


    WICKEDBEARD...Those ROCK by the way!

    Re: Metal gauntlet buildup from WOF templates.

    ok I started on the left top.This is where I am so far.still have a lot to do, but I figured I would post some shots.I also have been fooling with the templates to do away with a lot of small parts and possibly be able to make more of these.
    so here we go,

    Re: Metal gauntlet buildup from WOF templates.

    A few questions...

    1. Are you using tin snips to cut with?
    2. What are you using to keep the seams together?
    3. Are you going to make more of these?

    awesome work!

    Ok no huge progress, but I pretty much have both tops done.now I have to start on the clamshells,flamethrower, and the right side piece.
    Here are some updated pics.Of course things will look a lot better once the missile, calc, dental expander,ect are on it.
