1, because the arms were fibre glassed out to the side, and I will not be walking around like a mummy............ see photo below.
2, because even if they were not, the mannequin has skinny little shoulders.................see photo below.

 I had to considerably flesh out the whole upper body on the mannequin when I sculpted the torso
 
Hey dude sorry. For all I know you are the same size as the maniquin. You could just do a quick plaster bandage cast of your shoulder and sculpt right on it. Just a thought.

no need to apologise, it did cross my mind when I did the bicep, then I remembered how skinny it was.

Plaster bandage would have been a better idea, hindsight huh, but I am well under way now so meh lol.

Great job on the bicep armour, especially the battle damage, and the shoulder piece looks like it's taking shape nicely

Awesome work Lee and great to see you nailing your suit out. I think I might try the plastiflex for the Borg torso armor, shoulder bells. Can't wait to see this finished.

Its really good stuff Doug, it flexes like a stiff urethane, but paints like resin ( ie very easily ) so far I have tested these on it.

20 yr old Humbrol model airplane paint = Stuck great.
water based enamel from diy store = Stuck great.
neat FW inks = Stuck great.
Faskolor RC car paint = Stuck great.
Car spray paint in a aerosol = Stuck great.

oh and its very light weight.

Just need to tighten up some lines, eat and then I will texture it up and add some damage before calling this done later tonight.
