ok, so you guys got the other set of my lower armor from dcb? cool. I made 3? sets for him, I believe one of them was lab metal with backed resin and the other was aluminum resin. The one that you have could've been just sanded down a bit to get a shine, but unfortunately, the resin mixture wouldn't have gotten as good a shine as you got with painting. It would've been more dark gray metal looking, rather than flat aluminum looking. Great work, mebbe more weathering on the horseshoe looking piece?
