Just forget I was the one that suggested it when you start masking all those corners and edges :D

Nope... your quote will live in infamy, ner'vod. ;)

Malakier is non-discriminatory in his kicking of shebs to get people working on their kits.  :laugh:

For what it's worth the shebs I'm kicking most is my own

The green looks good around the earcaps and back ridge. And don't sweat the tape pulling off your paint. I had that happen to me too. Just give it a black wash and call it battle damage.

Yup that's the plan.  Seems like all the incidental / accidental battle damage happens on the right side. *snicker*  And good job suggesting it - I really do like the new look. I'll strip off the rest of the latex when I get home tonight. Then the only thing I'm missing is gaunts and my chest diamond.  Jeez... how do I STILL not have a diamond. Hahaha.  I'm actually considering making two, and using one as an every day necklace.  :o

Do the Humpty Bump.

Okay couple of mini updates over the last week. After some killer progress last weekend (three-days FTW), it slowed down a bit, since I'm getting home after dark.

Basically all that's missing armor wise is the gauntlets... please don't mind my rambling to do list

- gluing the hinges and letting the E6K do it's magic
- cut slots for buckle webbing, rough sand the slits and hit with some metallic if needed (buckles are painted, will need to hand sew the   
   webbing, most likely)
- main color paint (maybe green chevs on right?? wait and see)
- remask left and flat black on comm system
- hand paint comm sys for more color?? how have people done their comm sys?
- sand, black wash, trail dust, clear coat

aaaand DONE. :P

Still on track to be ready for app pics this weekend? You're sooo close. Keep that good momentum rolling.

I'm hoping so. My rather generous project planning spreadsheet has me at about 22 more hours to complete. So, like you said, if I can keep the momentum, I'll be ready by Sunday.

In other news, Tythim is going to be taking pre apps sometime in the next day or two. So proud of my ad'ika.

Welp, for two nights now, plans to work on kit have been derailed. GRRR. Anywho... slowly but surely, little progress is being made.

1. Have the edging of my two kama pieces pinned in place, just need to run them through my new machine.

2. Last night I trimmed off about 2 inches on either side of my backplate, so it should match more closely to my collar. Thankfully, didn't screw up any of the paint. So now it's just a matter of finishing the now-white edges. Also need to reform the sides, and make it more form fitting. It's not quite there.
