Update within 24 hrs..... what!
So today I added toothpaste on where I need to do weathering. Iíll add the second coat of grey and blue sometime this week. Also I did first coat of my Gina letís and thighs. This was my first time spray painting on my patio so there were some errors on the outcome that i will need to fix.

So excited how it is coming out so far. I think i am half way through my armor section. Next i need to remove the toothpaste to expose the weathering. I need to add more coats to my gauntlets, knees, and heel piece. Next step is to add magnets the armor and soft suit. I plan to purchase my jetpack within the week.

Looks great!  I do notice (and you have probably corrected it already) the spacing of your nose triangle between your eyes on your visor seems to be closer to your right cheek top corner than your left.  The tip seems to be centered on your nose line but maybe could get a little sanding down that right side to open the space to be similar to the left side.  If that makes any sense!

Ello! Here is some updates.

I had redo my helmet, knees, thighs, & gauntlets. I added bondo to my knees, thighs, & gauntlets to perfect the shown lines. For my helmet there was a lot of imperfections with the first paint job. Also I have to get my visor straight. It may look uneven still..... won't know until I do another coat of filler paint. A lovely friend of mine sewed on my velcro to my flak vest. Today I sewed in the magnets to secure the armor. April I should be getting my jetpack & belt.

I need to do....
sew the velcro to my pants
repaint the last armor pieces & helmet
add my visor
add cushion & fans to helmet
buy my boots
buy weapons
cut wig
make headband
sand & paint jetpack
make holster

Hello! Since I have a lot of time on my hand being "work from home" I got a lot done!  :porg2: with the exception of putting my darts & blade on my gauntlets, the rangefinder, & my jetpack... I am 100% done with the rest of my armor  :D :D

Other then listed above I still need to make a harness, make holes in my backplate for the harness, buy my weapons, buy my shoes & weather them, sew the rest of my velcro on my pants, add padding & fans in my helmet, & cut my wig.

Another update!

I received my westar 35s a few days ago, still waiting on my belt & jetpack to arrive. For my armor and soft suit, I am adding and fixing velcro errors on my soft suit so it can be perfect. I received my shoes & added my armor to that, also finished my gauntlets & helmet!! Next I need to try to cut my wig & make the headband but not sure how I will get sintra since we are on shelter in place.

Re: Bo Katan WIP Gauntlet Question
« Reply #27 on: May 31, 2020, 03:24 AM »
Hello! I wanted some clarifications with my gauntlets.
MMCC CRLs state
"
Must open on the inside of the forearm and have a method of hinging (No Hinges or Rivets to be seen) on the outside.
The right gauntlet must contain the following components as shown in visual references:
ē  Five illuminated buttons on the top. Four of which are red and in a row, the last being perpendicular and behind the firsts row on the outside. A white button must be next to it, in the same plane as the first row. Two forward facing gray or silver blasters in front of middle section. Two vertical slights on the outside of the blasters for exploding disc to be expelled. A slit for blade disc to be expelled (over wrist opening."
The right gauntlet must have a red in color range finder target as shown in visual reference.
The left gauntlet must have four forward facing darts in front of middle section, Five illuminated buttons on the top. Three of which are red and in a row,
the other two red and white behind the first row with the outside button being red. Next to the white button should be 2 non-illuminated gray buttons.
A gray or silver electrical grappling hook in the middle, and a slot for the hidden knife to extend or retract (over wrist opening).


Mine


For my gauntlets I glued them closes so they cannot "open & close," I am able to slide my arm in & out comfortably and it does not float. My question is will that pass App. I have looked at her photos for references and do not see any anything that shows her gauntlets open and close. Second question is the "illuminating" bottoms. I painted my bottoms to their respective colors. My question is will this pass App. Again I do not see her gauntlets "illuminated" rather just the colors in a dull shade. Above are my photos & below are the reference photos

I put this on the ďarmor constructionĒ got views but no comments so i thought i post it other places to get the confirmation. Since you did get approved with it slipping on and off Iím hoping itíll be the same for me
