Don't mean to criticize but for any newbies following this.... you should really shape your plates before you paint them otherwise you run the risk of ruining your paint work with the heatgun.... just saying.  ;)

Plates in silver then brown then clear coated going to do the boil method. Really hot water and then shape to fit. If the paint cracks im not worried there are designs i need to paint on them when they are shapped anyway so touch up isnt a big deal lots of left over paint and who doesnt love battle damage?

It will bubble and flake. More than likely will have to sand and repaint

Ya not to concerned. Alittle extra work is nothing. I agree doing the shaping before is better. But atleast i can see how the color looks with the rest of my pieces. Hoping to shape them in the next 2 weeks. Goal is to have everything done and app pics sent by fan expo.

plates are shaped for the most part, (paint did not chip or crack from using a heat gun) chest plates need to be slightly adjusted and detail paint added. vest is weathered just needs shoulders attached ( just finishing painting). boots have leather straps added. just about to the final stages now.













special treat.... Gonk ...Gonk?
