So, the Supervisor here is looking very handsome as he shows off what my housemate can do in about two or three hours. Thanks Maldemar, I suppose I'll have to forgive you for attempting to break my finger ;):P

Could probably add it's a mask, fairly successfully head-sized one at that.
Honestly think it's a fair trade, though we probably shouldn't repeat it the next time you want a helmet, you've only got so many fingers :P

You could add that, but then where is the mystery? The suspense?

Talking of mysteries, I go out to work leaving a mask with various marks on saying cut here, trim this, roll this edge and boom... I come home and it's all planished and trimmed and shiny. The Manager approves too. Or at least, she didn't appear to disapprove. Same thing right?




And copper cutting spree for the back and front torso plates, unfortunately the Supervisor got distracted from his inspection by dinner. Just got to get them all attached to the harness and weathered and then make the plate for the centre of the chest now.

The Assistant Manager insisted that I pass along a message. "I'm cute and cuddly and warm and furry and who would want to look at or work on the cold metal thing beside me? Admit it human servants, you all just want to pet me, love me and give me lots and lots of scritches."



Time to cut the visor and change out the blutack for rivets...

The Supervisor thinks this wasn't worth disturbing his sunbathing for. But I'm quite happy with the progress, all the copper in shot is rivetted down, and the side padding and elastic is in place.
Just the top padding and elastic, the top section of copper, smoothing out the visor and trimming the bottom section, putting in the visor, weathering it all, making and adding the cowl and adding the connection at the bottom for the hoses yet to do...


The Supervisor did however appreciate the long distance scritching pole so I may be forgiven. More of a test of how it will look at the moment as I need to take the leather off and wrap it neatly instead of just throwing it on. And the spear blade is only just beginning production.

Junior Management has had a grand time today stealing all my leather thonging as I tried to put these together. All I can say is thank goodness the final article will be using rivets. Strung together mainly to look at how big the upper back section will need to be. Probably looking at a solid armour grade leather panel with some form of bone attached but I'm not 100% decided yet.

Got it all out to work on today - The Supervisor promptly relocated to the leather that was meant to go on the back.


We wrestled. I won. Lined it all up. The Supervisor let me know it was off-centred and he would helpfully put it in place for me...


Also got the ab plates on the front in place. So you can have a really rough picture of how it is meant to look.


And the Manager brought me some more fur for my kama. I have since specified that the trophy should not still be alive when presented.

This is why bounties need to specify "dead or alive." And nexu need to learn how to read bounties.....

The Supervisor was coaxed out of his underbed lair for long enough to take a look at the gauntlet. He says I need more sanding on the sides and the spikes need more bondo. I did try to tell him that I was planning to but the Great Sky God saw me working and decided my project needed more water.


And since I have a tendency to forget where I'm up to I made myself an inflate-a-mando so that I can see how it's coming along.


Still a lot to do but I think my main bits are now:

Flightsuit arms and neckseal.
Mask finishing plus cowl and hoses adding.
Make shoulders and central chest plates
Finish both gauntlets.
Make shin armour.
Weather everything that's not yet looking well used.

Left gaunt is hardened leather, right gaunt is a slightly more flexible leather with foamex and bondo sculpting for the bone.
