    Starting JangoUri 2.5 (Chest armor + flak vest + gloves)

    Hey buddies, I said my 2.0 would be my final version but looks like i Can't Stop .....
    Im gonna upgrade just a few things wich im not happy enough:

    Chest armor: I've bought BKBT
    Gloves: (A TDH user have found a pair of Nordstrom gloves for me)
    Flak Vest: I'll make a new flak with shunned's Leather

    Well, I've began making BKBT'S chest armor. Here are the pics. I didnt like the curvature so I aplied some bondo. After priming, sanding, priming, sanding, rub, buff, rub, buff and wheather here is the result. Only the left armor is finished

    yeah, great job but those display cut outs, are deffo not in scale, I'd say about 1/2 to 3/4 of that size and your rockin!

    Great job M8! Its been too cold for me to work on my stuff.

    How did you do the weathering around the edges?

    I'm using acrylic Liquitex paints. I used Burnt Umber and Mars black for the chest armor, and also Raw Sienna in other parts of the armor, but not on the Chest.
