    Show armor...

    So I've been doing these weekly online broadcasts on how to create armor the way I do it (traditionally, and out of metal).

    Here's a pic of the chest armor we've done so far. This is 14 gauge aluminum (street sign) armor. Everything dished, curved, and planished properly then sanded down smooth.

    This will be a set of light armor (Boba style) once she's done, and will be on display at CV before being sold.

    Collar plate done today. The aluminum did crack a little in one of the inside corners, luckily I know how to deal with that stuff.
