So yeah, the title says it all. Really, I've been working on this for a few weeks now, so I'm just gonna post the last pics I have on what I've done so far so I don't fill up the thread with a whole lot of gobbledygook.
I went with the trash can armor method, and it worked very well
And here's the last few shots of the helmet, per Antman's methodology:
And other odds and ends, like how I'll attach the armor to the flak vest:
and what kind of fabric I'll use (the light kinda bleached it out in this pic):
oh, and some of the rattlecans:
So yeah, that's about it so far, but today is a day off work, so more progress may be made!
edit: oh, and one more thing, as a polite request from me to you, if you comment, NO MANDO'A!!!!!
