    Sweet!!!!:thumb:

    Have you thought about replacing the backpack sticker entirely?

    If it was me I'd think about cutting out the square where the sticker is and placing a black plastic section behind, with the white and red areas of the sticker pattern cut out and replaced with translucent white and red plastic that can be backlight with a constant light or alternate light effect :twisted:

    By the time you've finished it will look like your's was the original Cylon costume the movie ones were based on and glitzed up Hollywood style :mrgreen:

    I had thought of trying to print the sticker on a transparency then light it up

    That could work too, with just a little black tape or paint underneath to stop it shining through the black bits :mrgreen:

    I just got done with the advance test bata i like it BazookaJo did an excellent job on making it.
    I was thinking to hang it on your person to glue a couple of shoe laces on and tie them around the back of your neck

    Nice work!

    Just back from hols so getting back into my stride. Finished the alternate version of the chest peice (specifically for card only), but wasn't entirely happy with the alternate side peices (too angular), so will do another build before I release.

    So, back to the drawing board :mrgreen:

    Soooo . . . . (and I ask this as a designer of paintball armor) is it bulletproof? More importantly, paintball proof?

    And even more importantly: What IDIOT would take something that awesome out to paintball in? And I know that idiot is out there, somewhere . . .

    I'd wear that! A JT Elite Paintball Helmet bears more than a passing resemblance to the Master Chief's. . .

    I have a couple of friends who use these. One modified his with a small CPU fan running off a 9-volt battery to keep the lense from fogging up.
