A tease of what's been happening... I love Fettronics. ;D Just taped in place here. I need to finish painting before I can put in the tinting and mount the display permanently, but OH that's yummy.

Finally something substantial. The undercoat is down (i.e., the layer between the primer and the oxidized outer layer). Masking toothpaste is still on while it cures a bit, and the other pieces are still out by the airbrush drying.

Okay, back from the Celebration/Dragon*Con cross-country whirlwind road trip. Somewhat recovered. Starting to have enough energy and focus to work on stuff again.

A look at where things were as of yesterday...







I still have to do the last layer of masking and the other shade of green (good ol' Panzer Olive Green) over the torso armor here. I stilll have to finish cleanup of my knees and sabatons and get them painted up through all the layers. I still haven't resumed work on my gauntlets. But it's something. *chuckle*

A closer look at the right and left (respectively) shoulders, which are finished with painting and are in the process of final weathering and clear-coating:

Awesome work Vod ;) very nice indeed.

on the finished pieces id recommend going over them with some different grit sand papers and then give it a black / brown wash ;)

Oh, I got the later-stage weathering sorted, don't worry. ;)

Here are the shoulders after three shades of powders and the badge decal (taken with my phone -- I'll get better shots tonight):



All that's left on the paint/finish aspect of these now is the final black-mist and clear-coating/sealing. And since all my painting is currently limited to weekend availability... *sigh* Looking at Sunday at the earliest for that. :rolleyes: Then I start work on the insides... ;)
