update - used it at dallas comic con and did a 360 shot of my armor as well as a short video after showing it
in normal and low lighting and the 360 shot is in sunlight. I will need to order in a longer needler round though
as after attaching the led's it just does not stick thought the chest far enough.


After working on my bullet proof odst project that got side tracked, I desided to recycle one of the chest plates
that got shot to bits. So desided to make a odst chest with needler rounds sticking out of it. I'm still waiting on
proper lighting RBG led's to come in to make it purpleish.

As a side note this chest plate has kevlar and carbonfiber inside it as you can see it in the exposed area's on the
chestplate. You can get a similar effect by using nocking a hole in the armor and building up a lip on the back
with jb and apply some carbonfiber over the hole and apply some rezin to harden it if you just want the look.

After weathering the chest I use a flame to burn around the damaged area's as this is a very sold chestplate
I don't sugest doing to paper/foam/abs as it will warp and melt.

The upper chest plate is my old one bottom is of course the needler one.

Damaged section removed to show the carbonfiber under the onix layer. Side note carbonfiber and kevilar are not very fun to cut though...
You can see where the led is to be mounted where i tryed to cut a hole in it.

Both shards lighted by 2 watt led's it's just blowing out the image it so bright and this is directly under 4 60
watt bulbs to give you a idea of how bright it is.

It's great, I like watching the battle damage and Annanymous said: You have taken the battle damage to a whole new level, I do.
(Sorry for using your quote Annanymous lol)

Es muy bueno, me gusta ver los daño de batalla ya lo dijo Annanymous :Usted ha dado el daño en combate a un nivel completamente nuevo, me gusta.
( perdon Annanymous por usar tu cita lol )
