Hi there,

I am having a little trouble sculpting armou plates on mechs and other futuristic models.

As they need to have 90° angles and sharp edges, it gets troublesome as soon as these parts are "hanging freely" and are not attached to a surface on one side at least (sticking out if you want to say so)

So I tried to sculpt them seperatly, sanding them down to a rectangular shape und then assemble the mini, but that really takes some time. More complex shapes take 5-6 layers and so nearly a week to complete, and I wonder if there is an easier way oder better puttie than green stuff or miliput.

How do you put up with this? How do you sculpt a rectangular shape, or a cube or amrour plates?

Thought about cutting them from plasticard, but it gets really tiny at some point. Maybe metal sheets?

Need some experienced guideance here
