I'm 5'11" about 215lbs. I enjoy long walks on the beach and basket weaving.

All jokes aside. That's my height and weight. I also have a big meat head, and this bucket fits great. If you look at my armor WIP thread (link in my signature) there are some full body pics of me with the bucket on. I was about 20lbs heavier in those pics.

Looking good there! You and your lightweight bucket. Soon enough it will be time to work on the verd'ika's helmet instead of your own!

It is pretty light. It's not something I had even considered until I held a bunch of resin cast buckets at Chase Con. Those things were heavy compared to this.

As for the verd'ika... soon enough. I actually wanted to start glassing his bucket but it's been raining for a week and I'm not going to fiberglass inside again.... got yelled at by the wifey the only time I ever tried that... and she wasn't even home while I was doing it.

He learns! Hah! I wouldn't have tried glassing in the house in the first place. Trust me, I'm hating the rain too. I need to bondo. I can sand in the basement, but I'm not sure I ought to use the bondo down there even with the respirator. It's too dark, honestly.

I've bondo'd in the house as well... got yelled at for that too. Even with the downstairs door and window open and plastic taped over the door. The smell will go away, but it takes a while.

I have a similar build going on, also with the intent to apply as a Brigade Mechanic. 

My light, also mounted with a rail, is on the left side of my lid, and I also reworked my RF to fit a light as well. 

Following this closely as its along the same vein as my own build.  Looks good so far.

So had some free time yesterday (which is rare) and decided to start painting the bucket. The plan is to layer the paint, masking damage as I go. I started with the base "metal" layer. Added masking fluid for damage/wear. I applied the fluid with either a thin brush or a piece of coarse styrofoam. Having never done this before, I have no idea what the end result is going to look like. Oh well. We will see.



After I was satisfied with what I masked, I hit the entire bucket with a few layers of white. This is to simulate a primer layer and give the weathering some depth. I chose white because my main paint color is a darker blue and I wanted to have some contrast here.



After a few coats of white, I let the paint dry for a while. I then applied a bit more masking fluid in the same spots, traveling outside the original areas in some places. This will hopefully reveal some of the "primer" while not going down to the base "metal" layer.



Next up... blue!



Hit the bucket with a decent layer of blue, my primary color. Didn't focus too much on the mandables, as these will be orange. I may give them a cover of blue on my on the second coat... not sure yet. That's all I was able to do yesterday as I ran out of daylight. I hope to do another coat of blue today, but it's Mother's day and raining... so my time is limited.

Blue is dry... Ready for orange!



Blue areas masked off and orange is applied! I did one heavy-ish coat of orange and then a second as soon as the first was tacky. Then I removed the masking tape before the orange was dry.



As you can see, the masking tape pulled a little of the masking fluid off in spots, and some regular paint in others... but overall I think it just adds to the wear and tear look.









I had some time this morning, so I started to pull some of the masking fluid off. I'm not done yet, but it's starting to come together and I'm incredibly happy and relieved. Next steps are going to be finishing with the masking fluid, cleaning up some overspray spots, and blackwashing everything to make it look grimy. Then I just need to install the visor and put some foam inside.



What does everything think? Am I on the right track?

Looks solid so far vod, I'm definitely a fan!  Before you blackwash it, I would add some various scratches to it with some different grit sandpaper, knife, screwdriver, wire brush....etc.  That will give the blackwash something to sink into for a bit more realistic look.  :)
