hey everyone, btw this is a temporary topic, its made just to find out how any of you made your flying squirrel's Mark VI chest fit your head. So far its fits perfectly except, my head wont fit through the hole. State your methods.

To my knowledge, that part around the neck and extending in front of it is actually soft armor. Not hard, as in the file would have you assume. Make it out of a cloth or rubber-like material. Also, it's an easy fix to seperate the chest front and back. It will fit you at that point. Put on the chest, clip the back to it, you're rockin.

Pretty self-explanatory. Take a natural join-line, keep that in mind. Fiberglass your piece, then cut it. At least stiffen it so the pieces match up. Then Get some sort of buckle, maybe velcro even or those snap rivet thingys, like on your coat or whatnot.

thanks, im just paranoid about it not being perfect. So im going to completely harden it, then cut it. Basically were the pic shows right?
