    Like door nails inside the helmet instead of padding! :D

    Thermomalfunction? Never heard of that. I bought a pretty good one though, so I hope to be fine xD

    I had to laugh so hard at your and Dirtdives jokes xD I nearly teared up! Thanks too that, now I am motivated to get back to my upper leg armour. :D:D

    Just wanted to say hi :)
    I'm new as well, and also making a set of My VI, though I'm making it out of foam. I think it's going well for me so far, but I think you're gonna have better luck with the finer details by doing fiberglass. I'm trying to compensate by adding a bunch of tech into my suit.

    Your build is looking great so far!

    For your helmet so it doesn't rub or cut you, use door trim edging. Edit I prefer using the aluminum core stuff as it clamps down better otherwise some glue would be recommended.

    Yeah thanks had a quick look on YouTube for a tutorial. I'd definitely like to give it a go in the future and compare weight against my normal hardening methods

    We have already planned this in :D we are using Eva for this, cause we have loadss of it at home ;)

    Cool! I wish you good luck for when you try it out! Spartan083 recommends you can add up to half of you epoxy mix with bubbles and thixotropy-stuff (only use a few spoons of thixitropy stuff and moaaar bubbles! )

    I'll be off now, need to get up and working again, March is approaching quickly, and we need to finish our costumes for LBM
