I was just about to ask what your weathering process was for this kit.

Bringing the animated feel to real life presents certain challenges that we take a little bit closer look at here in Brigades.

Thanks 😊

Absolutely! I am trying to match the damage as close as possible and really bring that animated look to life. So far, the plan is to black wash and let it really set in the corners, scrubbing to bring the color out on the main parts of the armor so it still matches and doesnít darken the paint too much. Then Iíll layer dark to light for damage, such as the shin. Because the animated version doesnít really have a lot of 3 dimensional look to it, I really donít want to create a lot of actual trauma to the plates.

Does it look ok so far? I am 100% open to scrutiny, as well as any suggestions you have.

Well... I wish I had better updates but I certainly donít!

My jetpack was still majorly too small. Not a kids sized, but maybe teenager now. To top it off, one of the bottom pieces is measured at a different point so when scaled, it was either too long or too tall.

I did buy armorsmith but havenít started using it yet. Iím curious how a multi-piece Jetpack and backplate will work with it. Also still having issues with my printer, so itís been down and not printing. I took a break from everything after the disappointment of my jetpack being too small.

I am currently recovering from back injections received yesterday, so Iím using this time to regroup. Iím also waiting on a lot of pieces for my live action bo to come in, but one thing at a time!

This kit is not dead, for sure. Last time I got stuck, posting in my WIP helped dislodge me from my block, so I figured it was worth it to try again. It also helped remind me I need to weather quite a few of my pieces 😂

Onward and upward!

Thatís a bummer! Weíve all been there.  Sometimes it helps to step away for a minute and refresh. I feel your pain with the printer. I have walked away from it many times and just taken a breath.  Maybe you could sell the jetpack to someone who wants a smaller one?

Thereís no rush. Take your time. Youíll get it figured out!

It definitely was a huge bummer. I feel a lot better after stepping away, and now Iím ready to start working on weathering again. I really hope my armor still fits and that I donít have to reprint it smaller.

I would sell it, but there are issues where the walls are not adhered properly and I worry about it long term. It is a problem with all my armor, but I applied a layer of super glue to the weak spots and it made them stronger. Only thing is, they arenít as large a surface. I am seriously considering burning it for catharsis 😂😂

Even with the issues, I am still enjoying building the kit. 😊 You are exactly right, there is no rush!

Iím glad that stepping away helped you refresh a bit. Maybe a burning would be good therapy  :porg2:

For print seams and some adhesion fixes, Iíve had great luck with 3dgloop for PLA (they have it for other filaments too). It melts a little as is glues and can help to smooth some printer issues.

Your build is really looking great. I canít wait to see your progress!
