Back and front progress

Oh my lord guys! The back is actually giving me much more grief than the front! anyway this is where I'm at so far, Really happy with the front and I think the back is shaping up nicely! *wipes forehead* This is really tiring!

I fixed the chest plate together properly and re-did the middle section, I think it looks better like this!

Chest plate progress

Okaaayyy chest plate is going well so far, I don't wanna jinx anything though! *Crosses fingers*. It's all just duct taped at the moment but i'll glue/heat gun it all together when I get a new glue gun - mine broke, sad times. It's pretty thick and hefty, I hope this goes well! D:
