how to combine/connect/attache the shoulder armor
took me some long nights of headage
but finally i found a really really good method :meow:

but i prefere to do this, when the upper torso is done
so that you can test it out

pic1
first i had to cut out a bit of the neck rim
it was necessary because the rim didn't fit that well at the shoulders

pic2
then i cut a little gap into the inside to attach one of the belts what i allready build for the claw armor
you see the instructions here
Avian Defender  - ''belting'' the attachments by Destro2k

ok this is important
even you have a big entry at this rim
you have to look how tall it should be
so i came to 6cm from side to side
that the rim can put and removed from the head and looks good

pic4
to add the shoulder armor itself
you have to do a bit of handi work on your own

also cut out the inside of the armor parts
or at least
that way that it fits good

then you need again some nylon wire and a few of this paper pieces
some small
some bigger ones

then orientate yourself a the folding lines of the inner side
and glue the wire at the ->inside<-
it's important because the pressure comes from the inside
and that way the wire will counteract against it
see at pic5
also
don't glue the wire just with one paper piece inside
bend it over and glue the bigger one over it
so you are save that the wire will not flip out of the piece

pic6
now pinch some tiny holes into the neck rim where the wire should belong
you can use the folding edges to find it out

pic7
push the wires trough the holes and do the same same on the other side
bend the wire backwards and use again two paper pieces to fix the wire
don't fix it too tight
the armor should fall nicely over the shoulder :)

the quite final armor version
