In order to obtain a smooth curve with a specific radius for each piece of leg armour, I used pink insulation foam, and wrapped it around a 2L pop bottle. I then wrapped a layer of duct tape around the foam, to prevent it from melting onto the plastic armour. Next, I placed the armour piece on top of the curved surface, and used the heat gun to form the plastic around it.
