Some Basic Shields

Here are some basic shields. I've found that mostly vehicle parts: noses, hoods, even windows can make a useful basic shield. Hope it helps :)

Very cool! That large helicopter windshield (bottom right) is really clever, I'll have to try that out

My issue with shields is getting a good handle on them, so they can be put at a nice angle. Any suggestions? In particular for the bottom two farthest to the right.

Thanks, but where would I attach it? My issue is that since they're empty at the centre and transparent, I find it hard to make a handle that isn't some huge ugly thing stretching from top to bottom yet still is decently stable.

Some attach them to the shoulder so the shield drapes down over the arm, Zaku style.
