There's a pattern of Al's armor.
Craft foam, hot glue and styrene works wonders but I recommend trying here.
and here
I'm trying this out too and it gets frustrating after a while. Just TAKE YOUR TIME with this. Don't get frustrated because it starts to look bad or wrong.
Good Luck.
and Just an FYI, I started working on my automail a little under a month ago and it's already done. Also if you're using Ed's long coat and jacket, Just make his hand for now XD
