Got some paint done the last few days.  Almost done, black wash done. Next clear coat, sand, brown wash, clear coat and final sanding.




Let me know what you think of the design on the chest plates?  Still wondering what I'm going to do on the back plate.

Armor wise, I still need to do the boot plates and finish the cod/butt plate.  Then I'll be moving to the soft parts, thats going to be a challenge.  The part that I'm strugling with right now is the girth belt.  I had made one but its way to large, I'll be making another one.

Later Vods...

Looks awesome Eric!! Real nice job!!! That metallic red really looks cool.

You doing a jetpack, or wearing a cape? If so, probably just solid red would be ok. If not, maybe carry you white stripe to the back  somehow...

No jet pack for now, I will probably go with some kind of white accent on the back.  Just don't know what or how its going to be.

Hello Vod's,

Got some more work done on the soft parts.  Velcro sewed to my vest and plates attached and I made a new ammo belt.  Found a good tuto on the Dented Helmet.
http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/batninjas-ammo-pouch-tutorial-8797/

Here a re some pics.

I got some faux leather at the fabric store and made several strip 2.5 inch wide.

Then I sprayed some glue on the back side to help hold the strip folded while I was sewing them.

Here is a pics of the glue I used.

Here you can see the ammo pouch.  I used peices of 2x4 shaped the way I wanted and covered them with faux leather.  Also made a belt to hold the pouchs.

Added some details to the belt with eyelets.

And voila, I'm quite happy the way it turned out.

With the belt.

Here I'm looking for some input regarding the color of my flight suit.  Light blue or darker?

Light blue.

And here is a darker flight suit.

Any comment is more than welcome, especialy for the color.

Thanks all.

Eric

I, myself, would go with the darker tone. Nice work overall on your kit!

Hello,

Had a good evening working on my suit.  Decided to go darker with the flight suit, I did not like the way my light blue suit was looking with my vest.

Anyway, tonight I tailored my suit and added some pockets.  I did not excpect that the soft parts would take so long, but its turning out nice.  I think...

Before pics of untailored suit:


After the tailoring:


And with the pockets:


Still to be done:

Paint my back plate
Paint my hand plates
Finalise my girth belt
Ankle spats
Fix my gauntlets closing method
And make a holster for my blaster

Oufff!!! That seems a lot, but I'm getting there.

Later...

Eric

Good morning everyone,

First pics of my almost complete kit.  Back plate is not installed in the picture, manage to put it on the other day and notice that it wasn't shaped properly.  It sits about an 1.5 inch to low.  Might even have to make it again :(.



Just noticed that my gauntlets are missing in the pic.  Oups!!!

In the works right now, cape, cape holding caps and holster belt.

Later Vod's

Gear is looking good vod, I can't see anything questionable so far :). Try and get some app style pics up so everybody can chime in and make sure all your spacing and stuff are ok :). great building :)
