And so I have. :D

So, I've gone mostly silent over the past year on this kit, seeing as time has been at a premium, and I've been a bit busy...



Very busy, in fact, but I have managed to get the new kit for my new wife well along the way.  I never did get around to making a full WIP for her kit (read: busy, and a slacker), but I can drop a few teasers while working on a few last pieces.  For starters, her blaster...



DL-44 Carbine, "Mr DeLicious."  It's more or less my trooping rifle for Echo until her kit is complete.  I'm kinda fond of it. :laugh:  Next up, a side-by-side of her bucket next to mine (modified Iron Forge Night Owl, with the T-visor more gently curved to fit her preferences).



And last of all, a lazily-draped photo of her completed chest plates.



The stripe looks a little off in the shot, but again, lazily draped.  Obviously, the kit is meant to be a companion kit to my own, and to give her a better sense of what all is involved in the construction of a decent kit.  She might look into doing an EC kit, but that's far down the road.  In the meantime, I'll post up more pics once the gauntlets are done, and we can fully kit her up.

One last update:  My kit has had a few small improvements added...



Switched out the big leather girth for a more classic model, added spats, put my blaster and holster on an Imperial Officer's belt, and started running around with a different flight suit-and-undersleeve combination (it came about more or less by accident one day when my flight suit was far too funky to wear to an event).



Also switched out my right shoulder bell for a two-fer of red ones to give the red accents a bit more pop.  The hat?  The hat's just awesome. :laugh:

And here she is.









With blaster:


I need to dirty up the soft parts a bit (already spoke to one member of the app team), but I'm happy with the kit as it stands.  Could use a few tiny tweaks, maybe some more small parts to add character...  Eh, in due time.

Questions, comments, recommendations, thinly-veiled insults...?

Man, that rifle is freaking sweet! I'm really digging the color combo you have going on too.

She picked the blue accents.  It was meant to be a companion kit to Echo (my own), and I think it turned out well.

The blaster?  That's Mr Delicious.  He's a bad mamma-jamma.

I almost did a dark teal as the accent on mine, but I opted for the brown instead. It's nice to see someone do it properly.
