    I think the more foamies I put on the shin for detail the more acceptable they look. Did a test fit and everything is feeling great, functional enough to even drive around inside. Gonna catch me ridin dirty

    Going to be finishing these up tonight. Gonna be rapping up this build with the small stuff that should be pretty easy. Knees pads and boots. Then everything will get a spray. I’ll be like Oprah to them. You get a spray and you get spray

    I'd say look into super glue- or even better than super glue, rubber cement. I'm an art student (in college for animation, but I do a bit of everything) and I can honestly say that rubber cement is WAY more efficient in MOST cases than super or hot glue. It's fairly cheap and can be easily removed/cleaned up using either Bestine (a brand of solvent) or a rubber cement pickup (sort of like an eraser for rubber cement.)

    I’m using weld wood Contact Cement. Half way with the Shins. I used it mostly for the knee pads and now the boots.
    That’s interesting about the Bestine and rubber. I didn’t know it could come apart like that. Thanks for the info.

    I think I should do a parody video of the Lincoln commercials as Sargeant Johnson.

    Do it! Then post it on YouTube. You never know. It might go viral. Then they hire to be a spokesperson... Okay... I think I'm getting a little bit carried away. :p

    I live in a small town east of Dallas. It may be difficult to find a chief lol
    At the near end feeling the smooth steering wheel *chuckles* “oh I know what they ladies like.”

    Actually, I'm only a few hours from Dallas. You'd be surprised who's in your area. Dallas is pretty big!

    Wrapping the build up going to be painting tomorrow when it’s hotter. For some reason It’s actually cold in Texas. Guess the governor purchased a free trial.

    Thank you, to everyone who has watched and given me advice

    Great job BlackPlague711!!! That belt is looking sweet. You may want to clean up the edges of the pouches a bit so the craft foam doesn't overlap the base piece. Either w/ a Dremel or fresh blade to cut the trim.

    I need to fix something with the belt. For some reason it just doesn’t fit in with the colors of the armor. I’ll do a whole suit test fit later today

    Edit:

    Well turns out Velcro does not hold that great when it comes to holding thighs armor

    Got in some photatoes tonight. Going to be getting some better quality photos pretty soon, so stay tuned for that.
    In regards to the suit as whole, I’m liking it so far. I need to add in some more functionality to the suit but it’s still great. Today,trying it all on, was helpful. Some parts came off but they were minor fixes for weak points.

    One other thing I’d like to make known is how hot it is inside. Why didn’t anyone warn me it was so hot? Lol

    I think he was trying to swat a fly that was buzzing around his head when the pic was taken.
