First off, I feel I should make it known to you that the general rule of thumb here on the forums is that if you're to post a "I started work on [insert item here]" thread, you need to include pics in your post.

Second, to answer your question, as you've already started painting the outside of the armour pieces, the only way to reinforce the armour would be to resin & fiberglass the inside (that's typically the first step most people do when building thier armour).

Hope that helps... :cool:

Yeah, Fiberglass would be the best.


But your "plastic" armor, will you use your cardboard to make the molds, or make a new one?
