I will say this. Your work is pretty stellar. You seem to be progressing well and pretty quickly as well. I've been building mine now for about a year and half.  You are motivated.

Thanks Vode! Still at it and wanted to post some progress pics.

Painted and weathered some more plates:






Weathered the side cape:



Adding some trauma plates:

Going to add these to cover the gap between plates, plus it adds a layer to the kit.




Still plenty to do and finish but making some headway. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Did some more on the segmented backplate:



And finally got around to doing the rub and buff on the hand cannon:





I will post more pics as I get stuff done, let me know what you think, and as always Mercs....Have a great day!

Thank You Vod! I appreciate all of the input and encouragement! I made some more headway today, really getting ready to wrap this thing up and it’s a very interesting feeling seeing the vision I had come to life. Anyway here’s what we have....

Paint on the front plates, still need to black wash and rust the plates, but it’s starting to take shape. I just slapped them on the vest (pretty crooked)   :P






Then started on the backplate:






Still have to pull off the latex on the yellow, black wash and rust but it’s coming along nicely!

All latex pulled off:

Thanks Vod! I appreciate it!

Here are the plates and helmet with the black wash and rust treatment finished.









Next step is finish up the left gauntlet and weather all soft parts and we will see what it looks like all together. I’ll keep you guys posted! Have a great day! ;D

Thank Ya Vod!!!

Starting on my left gauntlet, it’s a screen that will stream information (wanted posters, blueprints, heads up displays and graphs)



I’ll keep you guys posted, have a great day!

The kit is looking great, and I want to know more about the displays! I want to modify my ASD gauntlets to have displays like that.

Thanks Vod! Honestly, it’s a cheap digital picture frame that I got off Amazon, it has a rechargeable lipo battery in it and scrolls through pictures that you load on an SD card.

Interesting, I have one of those sections for display on my Rav Bralor gauntlets! I could use something like what you've got there, nice work.

Looking awesome! I like the 'I swim in blastfire' weathering :D, and glowy bits like that gauntlet screen really add that extra dimension to a kit.
