My armor

Well, this is my raw, just-cut armor. No sanding, no paint, no primer. I still have some parts to cut out, but I used the trash can method (I had planned to create KOTOR-era Mandalorian armor, but my budget, coupled with my inexperience, would not permit the creation of the helmet).

Anyway... what do you think?

Looks good. It's time to add some damage to that armor. Are you doing the neck plate, shoulder bells, and back plate too? Good luck.
Definately; those sections of armor require another trash can. I have the templates printed out, though.
And battle damage will come soon; my dad has a dremmel, and is going to teach me how to use it.
I figured I'd give him credit and thanks anyway; he probably worked hard on those templates, and deserves that much.

but here's some updated stuff:


and the back plate; it has yet to be formed completely to my body, but that will come soon. Does hot water work as well on trash can plastic as it does Sintra?
