Since alot of the detail was missing on the thermal cast of the torso bely area, i decided to add most of the included resin belly plate. Using a compass and xacto, i cut out the inner circular area. This would then leave a lip around which i could mount the belly plate from the inside.

The center of the resin plate was routered out to allow a speaker to be added. I trimmed the outer diameter down quite a bit so it would line up easier.

I then used a belt sander to remove most of the thickness to the resin cast piece.

neckring mounted, finally!

Well, i've finally got the blasted neckring mounted. It took some doing, as it needs to sit straight and all. Then came the back filling with epoxy sculpt and the endless sanding. But it turned out pretty good i must say.

A side view and a view of how the two halves connect.I could have just cut straight down the middle, but where is the fun in that? Besides, this is how the actual suit connects.
