I would recommend a bit of trimming for the edges bordering the chest diamond. Solid kit, coming along well!

I can see if I can trim any more off, that steel was frustrating to trim and sand .

In the meantime I've been tackling the long range blaster. It's been mod, fill, sand, repeat for me. I'm waiting for my apoxy sculpt to cure before I clean some more edges up and put an actual pic rail for the bipod. The scope mount is off for right now (hence the holes on the side.

I also have a blaster on order so this will give me one pistol, a rifle, and a knife to cover all bases.



Blaster photo is from the seller.


It's been a very long journey with this since last January or so, it feels good to be so close.

Made some big progress on the rifle today. There's still work to be done to it but it's getting closer.

Here we are ready for another coat of paint all sanded up:



I've started adding in some layered colors to bring out some shapes and weather others. I added a blue purple hue to the end of the barrel for a sort of high temp exposure effect



Bipod and rail are attached. The scope currently is a place holder but I may roll with it (with a different paint job) if making scopes doesn't pan out.



I need to reenforce the top area to support the scope, finish the paint/weathering, maybe stain the stock a little darker (though the light stock has grown on me a bit)

A little weathering on the flight suit. It's finally not raining here in Michigan so we ran out and grabbed photos between storms. O wish my camera picked up the dirt and grime colors on the black a little better.

Here's some turn around shots in sunlight and more muted background.

First shot is without any extras


Next shot is with the extras, sans helmet


Helmet time


Lastly in the rare thing called sunlight so you can see the weathering on the flight suit.




Lastly, the blaster.  S5 heavy security blaster. I will finish the sniper rifle another time.






Another set of shots, a little brighter lighting this time to show the rivets and overall detail.
