I'm new to the forum, and I'm really glad I found it (I wish I would have found it BEFORE I finished making armor, but better late than never). I'm using Chris Bryan's method of covering thick mat board with resin/fiberglass and am completely finished with the hard part (that pepakura stuff looks annoying). I have one important question though. In his method he covers both the front and back of the armor in fiberglass cloth and resin, and in a tutorial I found on here (http://405th.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2234) it never mentions anything about covering the out side with cloth, only resin. I'm ready to fiberglass but i need to know WHICH METHOD HAS THE BEST RESULT? (I'm going for smooth/metallic looking) THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

EDIT: Chris Bryan's armor just in case you haven't seen (most likely you have though)

Welcome to the forum, Janpan. Cloth and resin on the inside, just resin on the exterior. You'll have a much cleaner surface to work with.

Resin outside 2 layers, resin inside 1 layer, glue fiberglass cloth inside, resin over it, sand otuside lightly, paint.

Thank you all so much, you have been most helpful. Before I found this site all I knew was Chris Bryan's amazing armor, but damn, there are some nutty setups here.

I would have joined earlier but I was too busy making armor!

quick question... nice helm, but why is there a dick on the front?
You know what? I'm not too sure. I was probably up too late one night working on it and got bored. It also spells master queef on the sides. Don't ask, don't tell.
