I love it.

Have those been sanded and smoothed at all?  If not, those look awesome for raw printed gaunts!

Nope not really! He knocked a bit of the lines down, but these are raw for the most part. I think they'll be a breeze to work with.

I think they're going to look awesome when they're all done!

Update Time!

So I forgot how much sizing plate templates kinda sucks. I'm 6'2" but opted for the Medium 5'9" (I think) templates. I used Large for my first build and, while they give good coverage, I feel like they could almost be trimmed just a little bit. For reference, my naval is exactly in line with the bottom edge of my vest.





I'm looking forward to whatever thoughts and suggestions that you guys might have. Are they too short for me to where I need to maybe make them about a quarter to half inch longer in the chest plate area? I think I like my current width but I'm happy to apply any feedback from you all.

The collar plate and chest plate templates appear to be a perfect size for your build but yeah, that ab plate would need to be closer to the edge of your vest. As that sits now, there is just too much of a gap there but I think it might look off if you just extended the ab plate farther as is (which is confusing me haha)

Try taping some extra paper to the under side of the ab plate and then extended it down farther then take some more photos and toss them up here.

Hey everyone. This is essentially a post to say that I haven't forgotten about this project haha. I've been slowly trying to pick up parts as I can here and there. I did order a Rubies 3 piece Boba helmet to modify and with it I picked up an aluminum rangefinder and a tilt-swith style RF topper from Fettronics. That needs a little TLC though. Also, how bout that stunning paintjob right out of the box, eh? Watch out Mi'ix, you've got competition.  :laugh: :P




I also decided to buy a Black Series Deathwatch helmet to potentially use instead, but unfortunately, it was too small for my dreadhead and I've spent a few hours trying to take apart all of the insides of this helmet. I want to check measurements and then I'll ultimately decide which one I'll use. Essentially, the Black Series helmet is now very similar to the much cheaper Rubies one and the little bit of work to get either ready would be about the same. But I'm going to try to put the inside greeblies back in the BSDW one and leave out the dome part to allow for extra space. How it looks now:



I've spent a little time working on filling the print lines on the gauntlets, but there's still work to do there.




I'm also thinking ahead to soft parts and might get started on my girth belt. I'll use cotton rope and make it like I did for my red kit. I'm thinking that I may go with Rit Tangerine for the color, but there is also the option for Sunshine Orange instead. Not sure which would look better. I was planning on orange for my visor and thought they might pair nicely. However, if I need to go with a more subtle color, I'm open to suggestions. The orange would be dulled down and weathered obviously, so I'm not going to be planning to have a neon colored girth belt.  :laugh:

I'm also keeping an eye out for spats and a cheap half shelter to use for my cape. That should wrap up the majority of my soft goods aside from some leather things. I hope to get back to work on this soon and have some slightly larger templates ready to try out. I'm anxious to get back to this kit!

Just let me know when you're ready to send it my way for a paint job.

That offer still stands.

Absolutely. It would be an honor to have this kit painted by you!

Oh yeah! Thank you! I love how they turned out! I had Bryn Cyn'prudii print these! In his sales thread, he had the Jodo one ready to go. I also worked with him to get the Boba Twin Engines of Destruction one created for the left. I sent him some shots of the comic references and he came up with that beauty! I can't say enough about his work and the quality of these.  :)
