Umm.. Honestly I would say use light layers.. but they don't have to be like paper thin.
Basically I kept layering and sanding between layers until I got the exact shape I wanted (or as good as it was going to get) then I stepped up to a medium grit sandpaper (180-220) then I used some higher...
Ok So here is a qood question..
I am making full Recon armor, but.. the chest piece it seems is only the front?
Do I make regular MKVI chest pieces first then attach it some how?
Do I make only the back?
Assistance Please and Thank you!
Actually I used no tape at all.. But on that note I have heard that Fiberglass Resign doesn't adhere to tape very well..
My Supplies where..
An Old Motorcycle Visor.
Bondo Fiberglass Cloth and Resign.
Bondo Glazing Putty
Rustoleom Filler Primer...
Ehh.. I'd vote against it.. While it would be fun. I don't think that the armor would be able to take all the stress over that much time.
Plus it would be a lot of work, time, and even a little money to end up ruining it.
While it sounds like a cool idea. You could be digging your own grave so to say.. This is very dangerous.. with or without experience, the slightest mistake and it could misfire.
But To answer your question. It would probably be a good idea to make one from Pepakura first. It would be perfect...
