you can paint and sand bondo, in fact that's one of the things it was designed to have done to it.

yes,  but getting the right ratio is something i dont want to deal with for only a couple of little spots its really not worth the hassle....

another little update filled the little holes and sanded some spots and another coat of prime

getting ready for some bondo





i think i covered everything that needed it and sanded spots where i needed...there are some spots on the cheek but that was the best that i could get it so in lure of that i am going to playh that in to water corosion weathering.....suggestions and comments would be appreciated ;D

That visor cut screams MJOLNIR armor to me...  I recommend going with at least a partial drop, if not the full T-cut.

The fin, on the other hand, is kinda awesome.  I like it. :D

It may be small but it is noticeable, even with a hose. I would highly suggest fixing it. It won't be too difficult with a heat gun. Small things like that add up. The helmet is also the focal point of the suit, and will be immediately noticed.

pufferfish head! :o

^^haha i dont quite understand this ^^

but with the little bend in the visor im going to do it after paint because i have a theory that when the paint bubbles from the heat it will give some of the weathering i want if not then battle damage  ;D

but here are some pics of the bucket with the blue and green scale paint job





and the spots where there is no pattern i am using as a template for the battle scaring

so tell me what ya think about it and my technique
