Hello fellow Cylon Empire from Arizona.
Just bought the armor from the guy in Australia and trying to find the pattern for the under suit.

Welcome on board. The kits down under are pretty nice. Good choice, and welcome on board.

Welcome Anxvf1s, can't wait to see your build.
As far as under suit patterns... there isn't one specifically for a classic Centurion that we are aware of. Each one is a custom creation. Or you can get one from some armor vendors.

Welcome aboard the Basestar!

I've got my armor from the same seller and are pretty pleased with it.

to cut down on the splinters you can either trim them, or what i have done with fiberglass kits in the past is to get the resin and coat over it so it won't stick you as much.

I hope this helps.

Trying very hard to finish the suit for Phoenix Comicon (May 25th) here is an update: I have been working on getting the armor sanded and cleaned up as best as I can before chroming so as not to show any bad spots, pinholes ETC. I finished making the main ribs now I have to sew the spandex to them. I also finished the re soldering of the LED Eye so I could get more room inside the helmet they where directly soldered to the main circuit board and now I added wires so I could move the board out of the way.
