Mirdala Galaar's 1st WIP
« on: Mar 12, 2016, 05:41 PM »
Been so busy on my kit that I forgot to post any pictures of it. X)

Concept:



I'm using snaps to get the positioning on the plates right:



With the gracious donation of some gauntlets, I have added claps and painted them to match. (Finished painting screws after the picture)


An old softball helmet, a five gallon pickle bucket, and some sintra to make my bucket.

I know the visor's too light, but I had the plexiglass lying around. Will replace before I'm done.

Basecoat of silver.

From the side:

Note* The ear slots go all the way though so I can hear and get a little more ventilation. Do I need to add mesh?


Pre black/brown wash:


Post black/brown wash:


I've got no good pictures between there and now so here's the now:

I added some purple plate at the bottom of the shoulder plates to make them bigger and to tie in the gauntlet color.


The belt's vintage 1918 webbing.


Still needs: A back plate, girth belt/sash, gloves, and better spats. I probably need to sand down and apply some more bondo on the dome. I'm going to add velcro under the plates so there's less strain on the snaps.
