just a random project to take away the boredom,
inspired by seeing the avengers in 3D then finding a table top in a house clearence.

used items that were found in the empty house i was working in, an old belt and a circular table top are the basic recipe then a quickpaint job. i added foam to the rear of the large shield to make it more comfortable to carry.

after the large one i made a smaller one (modeled by my 3 year old son) using a similar recipe of a circular fish tank stand top and a thin belt.

paints were plasticoat red and titanium white, also blue gloss.

still needs a little work but can be touched up around october ready for the halloween season.
What size diameter is the adult one?
This is great, I'd love to see a full write-up on how you made this!
basic tutorial as i cant make an instructable at present <br> <br>take a circular piece of wood like a table top and glue a foam sheet onto one side of it <br>next add two strips of leather belt one the size of your forearm the other large enough for your fist, if you screw through the foam as i did it gives extra support to stop the foam dropping off and allows longer screws to be used, also adding &quot;O&quot; ring washers to the screws is advised. <br>add a strip of belt with the buckle attatched to the two peices using duct tape one end and the bucke the other. <br> <br>then flip the shield and trace out concentric rings using a drawing pin and string with a pencil attacthed (or large compass, then paint up using plastic based paints or gloss. trace out a star and paint. <br>add some varnish to finish up and protect. <br>hope this helps. <br>
