Hi Kristus, looks like a great work space. What material are you doing your plates out of, and have you posted a picture of you wearing your patterns for sizing purposes?

I am recycling plastics from riding lawn mowers and heavy totes.  I have not taken any pics of wearing the pattern. I have just cut the pattern out for each section and then placed it against myself to see how in fits before cutting it out of the plastic. By the way I am getting all the heavy plastic for free from a lawn mower shop they trow out riding mower that are not repairable so I take the plastic off and reuse it.

Okay, it looks like a good start and you can shape it. Any time someone uses a new material I have to ask, will it hold its shape and will it hold paint?

It's a good idea to maybe tape the pattern on and get some pictures before going too far, but if you get material for free and don't mind re-cutting some parts it's up to you.

Tell me about your blasters.

It shapes pretty easy with my heat gun. I have sanded it and did a test paint that worked out great. My biggest problem is the back I can not seem to get it right  the pattern fits but when I cut out the plastic it was to small so I am trying again.

Cool! A lot of plastics won't hold paint well, so that's good. Do some tests with shaped parts and see how much they'll take. One of our vode was using plastic that had really good memory and would revert back when warmed.

Keep pressing on vod.  ;)

Looking awesome. I would be sure that the 'mechanics wear' logo is either removed or covered when trooping.
