    Saikwa:

    the blaster hole was actually an act of boredom >.> <.< >.> ,i used a normal grill lighter and burned it topside, pressed it in with the tip,let it solidify,sanded it,cut off some of the excess burnt plastic,repeated burning process and sanded it,then i distressed the bell with black acrylic paint, and who said boredom never produces anything good lol

    Thanks Mando-In-Training that means a bunch, and im sure you can do it too,search trash can armor,its cheap and effective tho i wud not sujest using a box cutter for any part of it...no matter how impatient one is (speaking of experiance) cuz your likely to slice your thumb open and need stitches,tho i just kinda opted for a get a bandaid and wrapp it up tight method.....still waiting for it to comepletely heal lol

    replace your visor!!!

    I like the designs on the arms, but I think your armor might look a little more natural if you rounded out the corners a little bit
