Roughneck Joe© BDU: Armor
Roughneck Joe 2.0
Using the same molds from the original Roughneck Joe Johnny Rico figure's armor, it will now fit any 1/6-Scale figure by Dragon, BBI, Elite Brigade, Ultimate Soldier, etc. It is patterned from actual film-used armor. There are 47 individual pieces in each Roughneck Joe armor set. The armor is all newly cast, using RU-425 Urethane Rubber from SilPak, Inc. This is far better than the EST-40 originally used. It is much more flexible and contours to the shoulders more naturally. It is also very strong, and can be sewn through. This allows me to sew the armor's shoulders together. The tear-strength is so great, I can cut slits beneath the plates, and feed a continuos piece of webbing right through. This gives the armor a similar feel and assembly to that of the original.
Some shots showing how the webbing is passed through.
