Thank you for your appreciation. It's always encouraging, especially when not everything turns out as planned.
Good news everyone!:
The technique of Rednave worked pretty well on my knee armor.
I also used the same method on the PVC shoearmor to fit them perfectly to the new shoes. The PVC gets bendable like a piece of thick rubber after one minute in the oven and can be formed exactly into the shape beneath.
Wouldn't it be for the burned skin that technique would be great to shape a roman centurions chest/belly armor piece (of course only if you have a sixpack-muscles shape )...
And as I hadn't got the time for some further progress with some pics, how about this new developed dart-armed shoe armor?
Well, I guess, if you're unlucky while firing those darts, you'll hit some vital parts of yourself.
