    UPol is the United Kingdom's version of Bondo basically :) It's just a polyester bodyfiller. There's a few variants here but I've been working with UPol. As far as I'm aware we can't get Bondo over here. More progress this weekend I hope!!!

    How to Print, Draw,... emblems or logos on the armor pieces?

    For small icons/imagery and logos have you considered using plasticard? Yes it would be slightly raised but if that's not a worry then you could cut and shape it with relative ease. Ta.

    Aye Judge I'm using your backpack, I'm starting to think maybe adding 15-20mm to the relative dimension would have been a good idea rather than 5-10mm haha. But no worries, i'll sand until it fits snugly;) There will be more as soon as I buy another tub of UPol! Lots of sanding to go yet...
