So now that I've got my helmet built and painted, I need to start on my armor. Here's my helmet, which is what I've based my armor paint scheme from.
And here's a concept of what my armor is going to look like:
I'm going to incorporate the desert tan flight suit, flight gloves, and USMC issue boots that I brought back with me from Iraq. I've also got a military padded cartridge belt, and I'm planning on getting magazine pouches from the surplus store out in town. The plan right now is to build the armor pieces from a Sterilite trash can, and then coat it in fiberglass.
