    Hi all, just wonder if you experienced Fetters paint the back of the armour (the parts you shouldnt see), the chest and backarmour will be obscured when attached to the flak jacket but from certain angles and in certain poses you may be able to see the underneath of the shoulder armour for example.

    For the shoulders I try to mist under there to make it look decent, but other than that I don't think any of my armor is painted on the inside

    Also consider how you attack your armor. Whether you glue on bolts or magnets they do better adhering to the clean parent material vs a primer or paint.

    Not necessary and not worth the effort, leave it be just like the movies did it.

    On most of the armor, sometimes i prime it grey, but most of the time i just leave it. The shoulders i sometimes do silver so it looks like its metal underneath in case anyone gets a glimpse lol.

    I painted the inside of my gauntlets and helmet black although the black rubs off on my sleeves and face when it gets hot.
