Daedric Armor Progress by Kuraudo3 Daedric Armor Progress by Kuraudo3
I'm about to start applying bondo so I thought I'd put up a picture of what it looks like resined.

Amazing work, truly. I have one question. How did you cut it so you could put it on? Can you send me a pic that shows exactly where you cut it? And also, in what order did you do it? Did you apply resin and fiberglass and then cut it with a dremmel, or did you cut it before applying the resin and fiberglass? I was thinking I could apply a coat of resin to the outside, so it stays in shape, then cut it with scissors, and then fiberglass it. I don't have a rotary tool, so I need to use scissors. Would it work like I am planning to do it?

I don't think that's going to work because I don't think you'll be able to cut the resin with scissors. I don't use fiberglass mat or cloth, just several layers of resin before applying bondo. I usually put 3 on the outside and 2 on the inside. It won't keep it's shape when you just use a couple of layers, especially if you haven't used any mat or cloth. You want to make sure it's completely rigid before you cut it in half, because if it's flimsy at all when it's in two halves you'll have a really hard time getting them to line up properly. Oh and yes I used a dremmel. Not down any particular lines, just right down both sides.

Hey, I was just wondering how to make it wearable?
I have the patterns and stuff, but could you give me some tips on how to make it easy to take on/off?
Thanks :)

AMAZING build :) this is by far my favorite project to see going through the build. Would you still happen to have your armor PDOs. I'm 5'11 so ill just need to upscale it just a tad.

Amazing!
I also have a question.
How do you manage to put the armor on? I imagine just putting it on as one piece would be hell and might even damage the piece. I noticed there is something on your shoulders in the picture. (tape?) Do you maybe make the armor, split it into two halves and then connect the two pieces when you wish to wear it?
Thank you!

You said that you scaled it to yourself at 5' 10'' (good news because i am that height) but did you add a little space for padding/room if you grew taller? I would love to know so that I can adjust the files if I need to. Also, did you unfold all of these files yourself? I know that it takes hours just to unfold one file, depending on what the model is. Keep up the good work!
