well, sdcc is over and repairs have been completed.
my neo helmet should be arriving from the mandalorian arsenal soon and my carrier vest arrived in the mail yesterday.
today i went out and purchased some poster boards to start my build. this is how far i got today...
chest/ab plate build
right now it's just poster board held together with tape. the next step is to hotglue all the interior seams. that will be followed with taping a flat back to the chest/ab plate that i can use to mount it to my carrier with. once the backs on, the fiberglassing begins.
the chest may seem a bit exaggerated. if so, it is. this is for two reasons. 1 i'm using the comic artwork from the vector comics as my inspiration and 2 i'm a big guy with a barrell chest so i can carry it and pull it off.
i'll keep th wip pix coming. lmk what you all think!
