    Very nice! I love the detail! Its amazing to me to see the new scratch built armor. When I think back 5 years ago when I started building stuff, scratch built stuff looked nothing like this. Well done!

    How do you get (or more importantly, what do you use) the squares on the codpiece?

    it`s pvc too, 2 rectangles glued together, the upperīs edges are sanded with the shape (this one is also divided in 2, to make more easy the form).....

    yes, KEAANE, thanks for your advise, the chest armor is better

    AND THANXX TO ALL, for the positive feedback!!!!
    tomorrow MUCH more.............

    All I can say is WOW! 8) I bet the PVC stuff is going to be more durable than Sintra. How did you get it to bend? Heat gun? Boiling water? or what? Great work!

    Hi! well, Southern hunter, the PVC bends really easy with a heat gun...I really haven`t try boiling water...and yes, its a very solid stuff, easy to work with it, and hard to broke it....
    and Aaron, the grey pvc I have used, is 0,3 cm, and the orange one, is 0,4 cm.....some parts works better one, and in others, the other one....
    the hellmet was a more challenge work, but in my opinion, anyone should try to do the armor in PVC, cause PVC ARMOR RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jeje
    see you
