This is a project I have been wanting to work on for a very long time. As some may know I already have a Bob Bagy Predator 2 mask which I foam filled and display as a bust. Well I decided to make an even better display and add the torso armor as part of the display. The Torso armor was sculpted by Casey. I still need to get the armor painted and I'm hoping to get Art to paint it up for me in the new year since I love his work on his Predator 2 bio helmet. The armor is made from foam latex and comes in 5 pieces and is not yet assembled. I made a duct tape dummy of my upper torso and foam filled it to hold the armor on but this will be modified to fit the armor better. Still a work in progress but thought I'd share if any one is interested. Thanks for looking and any suggestions and criticisms are welcomed and appreciated

Looks good David, I didn't sculpt the armor though just casted it. Daniel Bravo sculpted it, but I now own the molds. You need a canon on that thing!

I wound up painting the armor myself. Studied lots of photos for reference. I started out by mixing gloss black air brush paint with pro's aide for the base coat. I then spray painted the armor gold and covered that with a layer of pro's aide. Next I added weathering effects using Tamiya Smoke dry brushing, motting with liquitex bronze, and the oxidation mixing white, turquoise, and green airbrush paints. Followed that up by another layer of pro's aide. Next I I dry brushed white and interference gold to continue the weathering. Lastly I coated the entire piece with Permawet. I used plastidip clear spray to eliminate the high gloss finish from the Permawet. I wanted the armor to look very worn and weathered. This was was first attempt at ever painting up a foam latex piece.

Very nice job dude! In the future, you can make permawet look flat by adding a few drops of water to it. It will work the same just look less shiney.

Most impressive paint up on the armor! I'm planning on doing a P2 suit soon so if I can even half duplicate the paint up I'll be happy
