Thanks for the wonderful comments.As for the heat gun, i do have one ... But I have no idea what you are getting at? I do want constructive criticism about my progress. I might know where you are going with the heat gun thing.(Chest core sides are kind of sticking out too far? Notice that when i put on the rib plates. Might not use enough heat to bend the sides. )If that's not it, then care to explain. I do want to know what i did wrong so i can learn from my mistakes.
Looking awesome. As to the smoothcast 321, Air bubbles come mixing. Stir slowly and most of the bubbles will go away. No biggy :cool I hope you are on track it would be awesome to see this at Youmacon.
@ZMX Thanks, glad you like my armor. Reason why armor looks so good.. Research. I read as many odst build threads as i can before I started this build. Learn what they did, Try not to make the same mistakes they did. I did take 2 years of auto-body collision repair at KCTC, during High School. My favorite part of that class is painting. I kinda rush bondo stage of my armor since my deadline is coming up soon. You can hardly notice the imperfections, unless you know where it is.

This is what i got from my Dupli-color can. Hope this helps you elettrozero
Love the way this is turning out. Question though as I don't think I saw it. What did you coat the outside of the hard armor parts with. Also in the future. try using Smooth Cast 65d. It is made specifically for roto casting. That should help ease the bubble issue.
WOW. That's better than mine attempt at the Odst tattoo. I might be able to use this. Thanks carpathiavh99
@Drakon I coat the outside with Smooth 321 on the outside of my armor. And i use smooth cast 320 on the inside. (i got less bubbles now since i changing the stir speed down) I will look into Smooth cast 65d. Thanks for the info
