Thank you everyone!! :D

I finished up the paint sprayer yesterday, it was a really fun prop to put together. The 3D printed kit is from 3DPropWorx on etsy, and it's a great kit. I also got my westars kit from there and I'll be starting that this week.

Thank you!!    :) :sabine:

I primed the westars, just deciding on the colors now. I do have a question about some of the colors:  one of her blasters has blue/aqua accents, is the other one more yellow or orange, or something in between? I've looked as so many references and looked at what other people did and it seems to vary a bit, as do the base gray colors. I'm looking at a few Montana gold colors right now to base it out and then go back and do the tiny details by hand.

I'm loving everything about this build! You're doing a fantastic job! Here is a picture of my blasters if it helps, sorry about the light glare on one of them.  :laugh:

I've finally gotten the chest plates to a place I like them! I had to cut darts in the sintra because the plates just did not look right on me. I put a small patch of thibra on the back, and the filled the gap with JB Wetweld and sanded it down. The result looks nice I think, and the seam is gone. I did have one concern which might be hard to correct because of the way it's shaped to fit me, but do the overall shape of the plates look OK to everyone? My concern was with the outer sides- they curve a little more than the reference, but the reference is also a cartoon that defies physics so I don't know if I'm overthinking it haha I also know the MA chest plates have a little bit of a curve to them on the sides, as well, and I've seen people approved with those.











ALSO! I received my April Storm Props vambrace/gauntlets and OMG they are GORGEOUS! I also love the included koozie hahaha XD I can't wait to paint these!

You're doing a really great job on this build! Stellar work  :sabine:

If possible, try and snap a pic with the chest plates on you (taped or holding them in place if needed) so we acan see how they're fitting. But you did an excellent job with the dart and I think you're headed in a good direction.

Sabine's plates barely curve around the top of her ribcage and the outer corner of the plats dip down just barely into the gray of the shirt. The plates should end around your waist so when you bend over they kind of sit in your natural waist/above the navel :)

Keep up the good work  :like:

Thank you so much!! I will definitely do that, it really is the only way to tell if it's going to look right in the end :)

I have another quick update- started painting the westars! I never thought I would appreciate masking tape this much in my life XD I want to add a little bit of a  very light orange tone to the yellow, and the get to the details like the mid gray panels, black lines, and the weathering.

Thank you!  :porg1: I'm hoping to finish the blasters up by tomorrow night :D

And thank you again @Padm Thano for helping me figure out what was needed to get the chest plates looking correct!

I test fit a few times and reshaped them a bit to get to this, which I'm very happy with! :
