Custom Ubese chest armour

 I thought I would throw this out, its a 3D render of my custom Ubese chest armour as it sits now. The colors are only to help see detail, and not final paint scheme. Final colors I am considering are brown, black, or cover with the same fabric as helmet.

Update on custom Ubese helmet

Had a bit of progress today..

The white stuff is called foamies. They come in sheets 9"x12", and is 1/16" thick. They add a raised detail like panels to the helmet. I also decided to add a scoop like detail to the top of the snout area. to make it even different.

Next step is to resin over the foamies to seal them.
