Also ordered 2 capes from Dha bral, another thing to weather, need to work out methods to use, one cape will be a cape, the other my end up as a Kama
Some weathering techniques I'm thinking of are....use paint, you a torch carefully and also thinking of trying some battery acid or some other type of acid
Any one have any awesome suggestions

I concur that vest would be fantabulous........

Started on weather my boots, sort of going boba Fett style....abit
Started out with a grey, dark at front and darker at the bottoms
Other colours will be added, some Browns and black
The sole will be dirtied in time
This is just the start







Bit more done






Went darker at front, thinking that'll get the most stained from charred material, may lightly dust for final stage

Here's abit of the start of flightsuit weathering
Some colours look abit off in the pic, I used a brown that looks a bit red to pinkish
It's just a start, it's a big job trying to get to look right and a big area to focus on, I choose the front waist down at this stage. Thinking of where would get what wear



The tools in the pockets were put in to fill out pockets, hoping to show off areas wear grime would gravitate to
There's added filth to those areas as well, my thinking maybe there's something on the tools as he's put them away

Bit more done

Tried an experiment for my girth belt today, using cotton corn and twine, and pva glue. I'm still waiting to find buckles so I just wrapped the frayed ends around a tube, then glue and wrap twine around.....see how that holds

I'm impatient to make this girth belt

That weathering is looking great! You're doing a great job at keeping consistent weathering on your kit. I know the app team will be happy to see that!

Side note, I just read through your helmet thread... We need a jaw dropping emoji! You're nailing this build! Well done vod!

Bit of a quick update, I got some belt buckles today and started on my girth belt adventure
I got a bit done, 3 lengths of cord attached. This method is going to be bulky and messy
Not sure if I'll continue this way.....did give me an idea for a trophy though
I have another method in mind for girth elit, that may be quicker and tighter
I'll let you in on that method soon
This is where I got to, going to be a squeeze getting 7 cords in there, tight wrapping the twine around the cord and messy working in the glue

Damn. That is gonna be a push hey?! Have you considered a thinner cord for your belt? That would probably allow for the method you're using. But i also understand the need to not pour even more cash into your build haha
