lol ok here's an update for ya... I've stalled on the gauntlets for the moment... I've got all that plastic already cut from the trash cans, so I'm going to try to work that into the shells this week. I've also got the low grade plastic for the detailing, so I'll be working on that later this week too (I Hope). My family is dragging me on yet another trip to disney this weekend, so I don't expect to get too much done, my wife and daughter are a lil weird about me taking my hobby "work" with me on "vacation." As for the why I have not made progress this week... well my mother gave my wife a sewing machine... I learned how to use it... by redoing my vest. I just need to attach velcro to the new vest and It'll be done. I'm also considering redoing my backplate into a segmented overlapping set to provide more flexibility. If I do... I'll use my old backplate to test it for durability against airsoft rounds just incase I decide to wear it one day that I go to play . As for pictures, I'll take a few sometime in the next day or two and get them up ASAP.
