My finished armor will be painted to resemble Caboose from Red vs Blue because..... well he's just awesome. All pieces were made using pepakura designer along with guidance and resources from 405th.com

Well I hope you enjoy those. I've had poison ivy since I've returned from college and had to go on steroids to fight it off.... as a consequence I've had a lot of energy! Hopefully the weather will hold out nice and sunny so I can keep working like this, unless I have to start working. We shall see.

when you fiberglass do you just use resin on the outside and glass mat +resin on the inside?

Yeah

Standard proceedure is to resin the outside of the piece, giving it more strength. Then fiberglassing the inside with your choice of either fiberglass mat or cloth. I use mat.

It takes me a long time to fiberglass and I use a lot of resin because I dip the pieces in the resin to ensure good coverage. That prolly wastes a lot of resin but its a learning experience. Its also really hard to get the fiberglass to work right with all those details by just painting the resin onto the fiberglass.:facepalm
