    I decided to have a crack at making my armour today:

    Your armour is looking good, I've also made a set of Aluminium armour, it's great to work with. I made the blaster dents in the armour with a 22. rifle, you should try it. Keep up the good work.Click image for larger version.

    Ha! It would be great to be able to make the dents that way but I'll just have to bash them in with something I think.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Thanks. I just put it in the vice and bent it with my hands



    The trick is to open the vice so that the armour is resting on the bit you want bent.
