Yeh there's been some interesting new twists in this, My dad has told me he's guna help me fiber glass this mo'fo from head to toe ^^, it's going to be like real armour hahaha, he's even got a compressor to help me use fiberglass primer on it so I can still get the proper colors on it, so here's hoping this thing looks awesome enough for the stage!

Thanks but Im going to remake the helment and EVERYTHING out of chicken mesh as it came to my attention than fibreglass eats card / tape so Im going with something more durable.

Well I've been MASSIVELY swamped lately, I started a new job as a Waiter at Frankie and Bennies and I've been pulling 12 hour shifts, so when I get paid after new year I'll have gotten something like £1.3k in 2 weeks haha, Ill be turning a sum of that into Cao Ren =P the rest is going on my Widescreen plasma Tv ^_^ and a driving license so I can hopefully pickup some people come May, Anyway if it's a battle you desire IT SHALL BE SO!!!!
