Enclave Power armor from Fallout 3 was my first full body armor build. I had to be smart when building this armor because I did not yet have the skills to build an armor from scratch. The whole torso was built on top on a set of football pads to ensure that the armor would always easily be able to fit on my body comfortably.
The entire armor set and helmet were completed in less then a month. Creating this armor helped give me the motivation to continue to create more detailed and difficult builds.
