    Here is some wip of the Modern Nova armor pieces.

    Some reference pics : my Nova helmet and the armor pieces.

    Initially, i started the armor pieces with eva foam and bondo.

    But then i thought this would be a good opportunity to practice my cad modeling and 3D printing skills.
    So:

    Not without some misshapes. Mostly scaling issues.

    But, its a good learning process.
    Here i realized the shape of the chest armor has been wrong
    and reworked the model.

    Nice build! I've always liked that Nova concept.

    What 3d printer are you using?
