    Went to Star Wars Celebration in April and saw this pic, and this is where I got inspiration...

    Drew this up as a concept, wanted to change the armor to more muscular, and also drew up April O'rgana (April O'Neil and Princess Leia Organa's distant cousin)

    Downloaded the Pepakura files and rendered this...

    Started to add Styrofoam "muscle" details...

    Got a better idea and started using green pack foam, easier to shape...

    After some bondo and sanding, the armor started taking shape...

    Only had one fail, but after a heat adjustment, and the HIPS (High Impact PolyStyrene) worked out well, even picked up some of the "vein" details (via hot glue)...

    So decided to texture the armor also. The smooth look wasn't "turtle-like", so just got basic wall texture and sprayed the armor and when it dried it gave a better look, and highlights...
