Introduction: Cheap/ Free DIY Airsoft Armor (Dragonskin)
This instructable is for people who do not have much money, who want a decent armored vest for a pickup game of airsoft. This is NOT for people in a tournament getting shot by 400 fps rifles. If you and your friends are using an AEG rifle or GBB pistol this armor is for you. I GOT THIS IDEA FROM THIS INSTRUCTABLE > https://www.instructables.com/id/Airsoft-Proof-Vest-For-Free/
Step 1: First, Find a Nice Huge Refrigerator or Television Box.
After you have found a nice thick corrugated cardboard box, cut it into two large chest sized pieces. Then, draw a simple egg shape in the corner of one of the pieces... cut it out, then use is as a template to trace the shape about 20 times over. Use the box to get as many little egg pucks as possible. Do not space out too far, save the environment :)
Step 2: Two, Put It Together!
After cutting out the egg pucks, space them out in an overlapped order, depending on how big of a person you are. Hot Glue them onto the other chest sized piece of cardboard you cut out before.Obviously the larger you are, the more little pucks you will need. This armor is made to withstand multiple shots, just like the real thing, so the more pucks= more protection.
Step 3: Finishing Touches...
If you like, you can add a layer of scrap foam underneath the cardboard for added protection. And if you want back protection, just repeat the steps and flip it to fit your back. When you are done with the cardboard portion of your armor, you can attach it to any vest or jacket by any means you feel are necessary. You can sew them in the lining, or you can simply duct tape them, depending on the level of quality you want.
Step 4: THIS IS THE REAL THING COMPARATIVELY
