    That's a very cool color scheme, I like it a lot! And the helmet will look really cool with that red visor. Have you got the helmet done? I'll be watching this thread for all the progress. Keep it up man!

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    i made my first helmet last week. it didnt turn out as smooth as i had hoped, but painted it up to look like my characters grandfather's helmet. now i know how to build it properly, ill start another. i had a bit of trouble with the fiberglass.

    better luck next time i expect.

    vor'e for the comment. the red visor is my dream.

    yep, cut out the main chest armour roughly now. got some cropping and sanding to do, but the drums curve works well

    Nice! Buckets and that hard ABS style plastic makes great plastic armor.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    Wow thats looking really good! How well does the curvature to conform to your body?
    Are you going to put any dents in it anywhere?

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    the extreme edges may need bending in a touch just to fit properly, but its almost 90% there.

    not sure about dents, but there are going to be scratches and gouges in it.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    i have a question about the flak vest that the armour is attached to. would a black t-shirt work if i put seat belt webbing in strips on the inside to support the holes for the bolts?

    Well it's your custom, so I'd say its your call as to if it looks good. But whether or not it'd be functional, I have no idea. Trial and error?

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    Well depending on your budget, I would HIGHLY recommend one of LadySewforus's vests. They are fantastic quality and dye-able(I think). But that really just depends on your budget.

    But do keep up the good work, and I love seeing progress pics.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    cut out the back plate yesterday, and did a bit of bending using a paint stripper gun to heat up the plastic. painted it with primer, and given it a coat of silver to make the metal under the paint.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    Really well done all around. The color scheme is sick and the armor is looking good. I don't know about the shirt though. I don't think that regular shirts are thick enough to support armor well, it might tear or something. Keep on working it's going great so far.

    Oh-ah, i see what you were going to do. I think that could work. I wasthinking about doing that for my leg armor so it stays close to my legs. It all depends then, on if it'll look good or not.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    this is my progress so far.
    i need to roughen up and weather the back plate, and im looking for a design to go on the right shoulder plate, but so far, i am very happy with the colour scheme.

    hope everyone likes it.

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    Ooh, the back and shoulders are looking good! I love that scratch on the one shoulder bell.
    How are you going to weather the rest? I forget who, but somebody here simply chucked their armor pieces really high in the air and let them fall on gravel and pebbles and it gave some really good results, haha.
    You are making great and really fast progress, keep it up!

    Re: Kyr'am Galaar armour

    the scratch on the shoulder was already on the water drum, i just sanded away the paint after it had dried. ill probably go at it with a screwdriver or something, and the fill in the slashes with silver paint and a small brush.

    i saw that technique too, and was thinking of chucking it off a local castle near me. mwah-ha-ha-haa! oops going mad a again!

    Vor'e for the feed back.
