My fiberglass armor.

Ok, so since I don't think anyone produces armor that really fits my size that well, I decided to make my own. These are the fiberglass pieces I pulled today. They're still rough, but I'm getting better each time and these will clean up nice I think. The best part about these is that they fit me like a glove. Each bend and curve of the armor hugs my body perfectly. I can't wait to get these painted up.

Ya know guys, before this whole "Fett Thing" happened to me, I wouldn't stay up til almost 3 laying fiberglass. I blame all of you.

haha, the raw fiberglass would look cool as some sort of armor, it has a somewhat organic look to it.

Today I got my collar made. It turned out really well, I don't think it will need anymore fg added. I had to put a couple more layers in the rest of the pieces. Hopefully tomorow I'll get an update pic posted. And by tomorow I mean 3 am or so :)

Ok, I hit the armor with some cheap paint so I can see where the work still needs to be done. It's getting there tho.
nice... 8)

that's some pretty good-looking armor there! maybe i should try fiberglass myself.

Well it's still TOO rough. I haven't really done any actually sanding, just some dremel cleanup. 2 days off starting tomorow, maybe I can make some real progress then.

BTW, I'm really glad I listened to all the safety advice on this forum about working with fiberglass. If I hadn't I'd probably be either dead, or too braindead to know I was alive.
