Got the crotch piece done and taped it on the waist then just slid it on my ab plate/wrap section, I'll make it symmetrical later on when I figure out a way to strap and attach things to, thinking of "deleting" the brown section on my ab wrap in favor or fabrinor something. Anyway, here is my current build.

Been working on the spine and weird back flap stuff, this is what I got so far.

It got a little messy with the cement glue stuff, but I also attached it to my chest, look at the next post.

And here it is attached to my chest piece with it sitting on top some of my love handles and fanny pack stuff.

So next up, probably tomorrow will be straps and buckles to attach my cod to the waist and the waist to the abdomen/love handle/fanny.

Wish I was skinny enough to glue the love handles to the waist armor :lol: great job on tthose clean seams but how well would you say your flexibility is with the ab wrap ive been wanting to build one but want to be able to still move well with it on.

Well you can walk, and move side to side, but the real question is " How good are you at popping a squat?" Because there is no bending like a normal person in a foam wrap, if you want to bend like a normal person, I would try to convert the foam file to a fabric with maybe some of that "squishy" foam, I forget what its called.

Today is leg day, well thigh day, cut out my templates yesturday, transfer to 4 different thicknesses of foam, and just got done cutting out, now I'm beveling, and later glue all together, really hope I nailed my scale because it took ALOT of my foam.

I actually found one of my old shins from...wow 4 years ago, not very pretty, I plan on blowing this shin away with version 2, so here is the first shin, with a special mixture of iodinized iron mixed with steel on my airbrush, thought it was close to Halo Reach's "Steel" color.

Think my new version, hmmm I'm going to beef it up, new paint job will probably be the same color, and actually paint my decals on, I'm not good with actually decals

Hey zachturner009, Lines look pin straight and seam are great. You talk about my legs? That shin piece from 4 years ago looks pretty thin. I could probably use that as a bracer. ;)

Also this is about the only useful I will post, for anyone who wants para knees for a reach build I used 2 different files below this sentence.

I wanted these knees and I like the shin below this pic.
20200619_123724.jpg

So I scaled my shin and printed out the middle piece as my reference, then I scaled up the file with my knees I wanted to match the width of the middle piece, and pic would show it better, so here it is.

And bam, same width, which means it should be symmetrical.

And the end result.
