Slow and steady. What grade of of sanding do you plan on using?

The bigger the number the smaller the scratches.
It is better to get a finer finish.

Another round of fiberglass done and armor pieces put to cure. My fiberglass cloth is very strong but too thin to move after I lay it down on the resined surface. As to say some air bubbles appeared but I've already managed to do some incisions and tomorrow will load the gaps with more resin. I may do another coat of fiberglass cloth in some areas that I want really strong. Each pice of armor has 2 layers of resin inside and outside and the insides will have one or two fiberglass layers. After I'm happy with the results I'll start working with the automotive putty and sand paper.

Getting all the stuff needed: 10mm Snap buttons, polypropylene webbing to connect back, chest and ab plate and 15mm red elastic band to secure the chins.

I've also made another layer of resin and fiberglass to these armor parts which I felt would need more toughness:

The ab plate was covered by cardboard on top of two layers of resin and two of fiberglass and then I applied another coat of resin.

Putty works in progress. A couple of issues I've learned. It's easier than I thought but I will have a lot of sanding ahead in the ab plate because I kept putty thicker than needed for the first layer... Other issue is that I may have some trouble to round up the shoulders armor... I should have not folded the initial pepakura shoulder bells to keep it round, as I did to the forearm pieces when I realized that folding will bring a lot of work to make the final right shape. Let's see what I can do...
