looks good so far keep up the work.

Great stuff is expanding foam that is used for insulating. It gives your armor more structure to give it a realistic feel.

is the only purpose of the expanding foam to provide some structual integrity while you go about resining and fiberglassing it, and then after that is done and dry, you cut the foam out ?

I saw that first picture when I scrolled real fast and I thought it was a flood... LOL...

Are you supposed to fiberglass all your armor pieces??? how do people normally do it?

im actually using a dif technique now, im no longer going to use gr8 stuff to reinforce it so i can clay it over for the details, but rather going to resin it then clay it, btw i got to take some pics of the helm, but there are some problems at this point:
a little too small
a little lopsided when i put it on, but it wont matter really
