I’m loving all of this!
Practicing new skill sets (or re-learning old ones) are always challenging but worth it in the end...
You are killing it...

Thanks mate and that's very true. Learning to do the dishes was intimidating  :laugh: :laugh:
Serious though, yep have to The challenge the brain, believe you can achieve what you set the mind to do 🤔
I'm trying to learn electronics, machining skills and how to anodise aluminium to start. It's forcing me to slow down, think.....measure twice and cut once  :laugh:. Teaching patience too.
I'll get back to painting soon though, good paint jobs draw the eye but I haven't the patience for it at this stage

Maybe a little bit of progress with anodising

I used it dye frost grey, might next time use black. Used a scrap piece that I'd stuffed up. At bottom I used a file to scratch away the coat to show aluminium underneath. I'm making some progress. I've also found if I leave the piece in the drain cleaner solution for a while, little bits of the surface gets eaten away....natural weathering and will blend in with my helmet better. Having a super clean and shiny ear(s) would look out of place

Just about finished this bit....just a bit of fine tuning to go  :)...more filing

Mainly at bottom angles. They need to be thinner/ sharper, and just adjust width of the central vertical bit. Because I shaved a little off the top, it altered the width, now the address that.

I'm not going to put the three indents in ...the three thats on the top angled section. Got another idea in mind

Thanks mate, looking at a few other things, still more hit and miss with anodising
Should look at jetpack too
Here's the piece on the bucket

And something else I'm thinking about

That’s true, I won’t be using those tines as they’re warped. I haven’t tried heating them up to straighten though. 🤔For what I’m wanting to do I think parts will need to be altered or redesigned. Actual rocket itself may be used. Using it to help visualise what needs or could be done

Some pics of some goodies...and ideas for the gauntlet of death. Progress on right ear cap. Waiting on a smaller diameter end mill before I go further


The two clips are for attaching grenades to belt....have to decide on which one though. I'll use black wire to attach them and also use abit in whipcord....maybe
The file is to give rough idea for a blade...not too big, more a stiletto type
For the right gauntlet I'm thinking of including ;
- flame units / dart launchers as seen in "twin engines of destruction" comic.... boba fett style
- usual small darts
-whipcord and a dart below it
- extending knife/ vibro knife
- thinking jango style blades
Also wondering what the black object above small darts could be.....laser would be too hard to fit

That'll keep me day dreaming for ages  :laugh:....while I work on other bits

Thanks mate, was mucking around and broke a cheap file.....either I have hands of steel or it was very cheap -censored-...so taking advantage of my hands of death I mocked up an idea

Not quite a blade, maybe I'll go with some sort of injecting device, similar to Tor viszla in open seasons comic, when he stabbed jango. I could use darts at distance and this thing at close quarters
Added in the fett survival knife....doesn't look that bad and a rough experiment paint job

The concept on the gauntlet is interesting. I would caution you on using something metal, sharp, and pointy on your kit. It could hurt you or someone else.

You could try a rubberized piece or something plastic.

I think you should make some metal tines for the jet pack grapple hook  :D :D :D
