    Not sure if this counts as an insult to you, as a lot of people take certain insults as compliments...
    He called you a geek and nerd.

    Anyway, I'm thinking of just running around the neighborhood looking for sintra...
    Though my dad thinks that I'm going to get some kind of disease *AGAIN* if I use any kind of chemical plastic.

    And, ner vod, you can lie all you want about the 3 hour job, but I know it took longer than that.
    NOBODY shapes and cuts out? and paints the armor in 3 hours.
    So you can't fool me .

    It's not that hard to do BlueJay. True it took me three days to shape and cut my armor peaces but in the long run it turned out really good. If one knows what they are doing then it can happen. A friend made a set of armor in 15 minutes. Really its not that hard.

    Commander, that's either amazing or an extremely exaggerated lie...
    You're using cardboard, though...he's using plastic.

    I would not lie to anybody. In fact it took me at least twenty minutes to cut out my peaces of armor. But in those three day I was able to fold and fit the armor to my form. Now I have to add a smoother surface to the top of my armor so no cardboard lines would show through.

    And it's not a lie BlueJay he told me himself through myspace.

    I think he was being facetious. THanks for the comment, and actually, the whole build, helmet, guns, armor, paint, kama, holsters pistols and shins, took only about 7 hurs total, but that chaingun is the best thing I have created (next to my scratchbuilt E-11 of course. :P)

    Hey; you did a great job. If I had the paint, padding, attaching material that I need then my armor would already be finished aside from the helmet. But all in all you did a great job. You must of taken a break as well during the painting stage of your armor as well.

    Actually, during that I built the chain gun, and prepped the guns for painting.

    I can cut and form armor in less than 3 hours, so it can be done.
    I cut out 3 sets (kid size even) in like 3 hours, I did mess one plate up, but that's just battle damage. See my thread (from begining to see the armor plates)

    I'm thinking I might be lazy and just buy my first helmet, in factthat Krayt dragon bucket from Saz I'm in line for will almost assuredly be my first as i won't have time to make one tween now and when he has them ready, and I won't have any money to spare to buy one if I'm saving up for that beauty.
