    Wicked.

    Although the gloves look pretty clean, or maybe it's just the picture?

    How long did this take?

    Took about 2 years to get all the parts. I did very little myself (pretty much just the weathering) and mostly just scoured the cargo hold here for stuff. Always upgrading though...

    That's very cool. Any scratches, bumps or peeling are just going to make the armour more authentic. Was the armour shaped by hand or was it done in a press?

    shaped by hand I think. It looks like it was hammered to shape and then smoothed with a grinder. Not sure though...
