Sparrow Posted December 24, 2015 Author Report Share Posted December 24, 2015 Painted the canister for the back, then mounted and assembled it to sit just above the belt. I put an anchor on the inside of the back so it is permanently screwed into the back armor. Worked on the strapping for the upper armor. Giving it the same tongue and groove as the abs. Did some work on the section of the forearm that sticks out past the elbow. As one can see in behind it, I wanted it to look a little better than just the backside of plastic armor glued together. So I glued some scrap in behind to add some thickness to it, then below that added a soft strip of Velcro to add some comfort as my wife’s elbow rubs against. Not sure how I feel about the soft Velcro, I might just replace it with more plastic to extend the backside look. Also added some insulation foam on the inside of the elbow to keep the armor from biting my wife. This will also help center the armor on the arm as well. Did some work on the helmet, trimming the head and cutting out the eyes Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
