Scout Trooper – Armor – Chest – Decal Application

Adding The Details…

The indent decal…

The right side of the Chest Armor has a small indention that is gray in color. Rather than trying to mask off and paint it, I chose to just use a scrap piece of the gray decal material that came with the Helmet decals. I first cut a small piece, to fit in the indention…

Then the decal was applied.

Scout Trooper – Armor – Chest – Reinforcement

Adding Strength…

The Chest Armor has a small piece that is supposed to strengthen the weakest point down the very center. But, it is a fairly flimsy piece, and allows just a little bit too much flexiblity…

I’m going to try using some metal strapping to make that area a bit stronger.

I first cut some small metal pieces…

I then mixed up some J-B Weld, and embedded the metal strapping into it over the problem area.
