As soon as I saw Seekers demo at D*Con for his chest armor, I knew I had to get that curve that is so elusive. I don't have the workspace to do a lot of sanding on bondo so, when JD posted pics of his fiberglass Jango armor I finally got an alternative.
First of all, this stuff is awesome. I did no prep work to it other than triming and wetsanding once with 600 grit before I applied Rub and Buff. His torso set was a little big for my proportions so I had to trim it freehand to match the scale I wanted. I used the Publicity photo as a guide. I also trimmed a little extra on the shins to get the more accurate notch on top and the curve at the bottom.
It came out so good, I was inspired to sew myself a new flakvest to go with it out of auto upholstery synthetic leather.
Here are some pics of the mods and rub and buffed armor pieces. Also there is a pic of my old torso set that I originally got from SFP. I'll post pics of the weathered and finished suit as soon as My wife can take a pic of me wearing it.
Thanks a lot Judz
