Got a couple days of uninterrupted work time in the sun this past weekend and made some major progress.

Added some physical weathering to the Jantech vacformmed plates. I also cut slots for the electronic reader.  I will be using an electronic name badge like I did with my Death Watch kit.


Cut a rectangle in the vacformed diamond and backed it.


Applied primer followed by the silver base. 3 or so coats of Rustoleum aluminum.


After applying liquid latex over the physical damage and in a few additional areas I applied the gloss dark grey as the first layer on all the primary plates. 2 layers


Added more liquid latex so that the dark grey would show around some edges of the silver.  Decided to go with an orange layer immediately after the grey, without masking any extra. Very little orange will show.


Then finally the green.


prior to removing the liquid latex. You can see bubbled up in all the areas.


Finally, here are the plates with just a couple spots of orange peaking through.  I brushed it very very lightly with 0000 steel wool to get rid of the gloss.


I'm holding off on the yellow for the shoulders until the helmet and gauntlets are ready for yellow - as I want to do it all at the same time to ensure the color blending of the yellow/tan/bronze/orange will be consistent.  I will be applying my signature scorching  method over all of this.

Making some good progress dude!

I have been absent on the forums for the last couple months due to being overwhelmed slightly at work but I am glad to see you working on this again.

Keep it up. I am liking the different colored shoulder bells.
