    Its a pain in the ass but you jus have to map it out using the original templates and then place it down in the area to see if it will fit. When applying is the hardest you juts have to be steady and patient so that it locks in to the right area and doesn't overlap anything that shouldn't. the dremel also helps if you make an error or have excess coming off the edges.

    HAHA a bunch of us we're actually talking about how mblackwell1002 has to trademark that :lol::lol::lol:

    Update:

    So if you know me well enough, you'll know I hate the snow and cold and dream of moving to Florida one day where those things don't exist. But on the rare occasion where a snow storm occurs only a week before spring and hinders my day job inoperable which allows me to stay home and work on Buck ;):D.

    So I was finally able to sit down with those shoulders and finish off the details. I was hoping to actually get a little keychain for the piece that's sits on the back of the lower shoulder, but couldn't find anything and just ended up making it out of foam.

    Also sat down with the Knee pads and went a little crazy I didn't do it exactly how you set it up Gralt I kinda went all pepakura on it and tried to get those details that are on the back and are not really seen.

    I also did some test fitting with my old under suit which I will not be using just wanted to see the placement of everything. Anyways things fit nicely but I need to figure out a way to secure them so them stay in position. I took pics of the front side and back, but the front ones didn't come out so well also that cod pice does not hang low enough so I will definitely be redoing it.

    So lately I've been stalling on this project because I am dreading the undersuit. I've been researching this and that and trying to come up with a way with limited sewing skills to get this done. So with that in mind I'm going to take sewing classes with my wife I think lol. Just another skill to put under my belt I guess.

    Update: I managed to get some items done while contemplating the undersuit during long sleepless nights. Was able to finish the Boots and start with some of larger undersuit pieces that Gralt put up not to long ago still need to add detail to those. Also I remade the cod piece because that last one was just way too small (whoever said size doesn't matter obviously was not building Spartan armor...)

    These undersuit pieces are located on the sides of the hip going down the thighs. Completed the templates for details just need to assemble.

    And obviously you can see the difference here just need to add the details to this as well.

    I think some sewing skills would be invaluable in the relm of cosplay. I would like to learn as well. Hot glue or barge can only get you so far. Oh and btw cool slippers(y)

    Thanks bro, but I'm the one Jealous of those obj skills you've been killing it with these files. And I am ever so grateful :D

    Exactly contact cement and hot glue did not work very well for my last attempt at a custom under suit, everything kind of fell apart :confused::confused::confused: Sewing is definitely a good skill to have as my wife has showed me in the past

    "These slippers where made for walking, and that's just what they'll do" :whistle:;)

    Sorry it was late and that last pic of the boots made me think of slippers. So I couldn't resist. On a serious note builds turning out great.

    Amazeballs! That's one heck of a difference with the cod piece, are you still redoing the chestpiece? If so...if you're selling or giving away your old one I call dibs, I want it to study your work and replicate it into my own...purely education and logical reason...

    I may not be redoing it if the next test fit works out. But if it doesn't well then it is yours, and I will not charge you a single penny for it on one condition, you have to share with DD after your done studying it and replicating it please pass it on to Dirt.

    As long as I get a Papeesheewoosh! I know I've made a decent update haha ;) Thanks bro!
