reinforced armor / shovel shield
When I work with resin parts, I try to do minimal drilling. Reason is resin is extremely toxic to the body. I try not cut or drill as much as I can from a resin part, only ever enough for the part to hold and retain structurally sound. The shovel shield is attached by tongue&groove with a paper clip. The protrusion is less than 3mm as the shovel shield is rather thin. Only sticking out enough to provide a stable hold to the shield.
So far my batch of casts have been pretty decent, minimal bending in hot water was required. Just trying to build up to the moment when my stormravens/BA dreadnoughts arrive. This will have to suffice.
