My fabric samples came today and luckily the ones that were heavy weight enough were also great colors!

These are heavy weight pointe de roma from spandexworld.com in navy (flight suit) and dark heather (flack vest).


(Don’t mind the cat hair)

Here are the samples with the gloves. The gloves are a bit brighter, but I think they could still work with some weathering.

Quick update. Fabric is ordered. Not sure how long it will take to arrive, but hopefully not too long.

My knees came and they were just a hair too small. I fixed that (very carefully) with a heat gun on low.

Knees sanded:


And I got a few coats of filler primer on them. I think these are good to go for paint.



I also got some sanding done on one of my blasters. Unfortunately I need to replace the other one because I left it in the sun while I was working on my gauntlets and it melted.

Hopefully I’ll get the gauntlet wrists dremmeled out and then glue them together.

Good progress on the 3-D printed stuff. I will eventually get the sintra out and start on the armor.

I got a lot done today!

But first, yesterday I received my very first BBB. The ABS parts I ordered arrived - back plate and boot armor. I am excited to work with ABS for the first time.

Today I worked on my blaster (the one that didn’t melt) and my gauntlets.

I got a few coats of filler primer on the blaster. It needs a quick wet sand and then it is ready for paint.

I took a dremmel to the inside the wrists of my gauntlets so that I could get my hand through without having to open them. I made sure the pieces lined up and glued everything together with 5 minute epoxy.

Then I filled the seams with spot putty (not the seams on the inside that are supposed to be there) and sanded and more spot putty and sanding and... you get the idea. They are ready for filler primer.



While waiting for glue and paint and spot putty to dry, I was also able to cut out all of my sintra pieces and I start sanding the edges.



The chest diamond is taped to the chest piece - I know I would lose it if it wasn’t attached to something. The top of the collar at the shoulders wil be trimmed when I am able to line it up with the back plate.

The fabric should be here on Wednesday. I will need to figure out how to brighten the blue up with weathering.

I love how this is going so far. You're doing everything right. Not just getting reference material but the right reference material to make sure its as accurate as possible. Keep at it. You got this!

I have done a bit more work on my kit.

Gauntlets are mostly ready for paint. I might do one more layer of filler primer.





I have started shaping my armor and I have done a rough cut of my ABS pieces (boot armor and back plate)



That’s all I got for now I think.

Got a bit more work done over the weekend. First up, chest plates.

Filled in the darts with fix it sculpt. What I didn't take a picture of is the back where the bulk of the support is.



Sanded it way down



Spot putty to smooth out the edges and make sure the crack is nice and hidden



After sanding



I will get a coat of primer on these to show any hidden imperfections that I need to address.

I also worked on my shins. I went with the 2 piece route - the main shape and then another sinter piece and fix it sculpt to make a nice angle

glued together (CA glue and kicker)



And with the fix it sculpt to make a pretty angle.



I need to sand and spot putty these next and then first primer coat.

I was able to get some stuff done over the weekend.

I sanded my shins and got some primer on them. There are a couple spots that need spot putty and more sanding.



I also got primer on my chest plates and went back in with the spot putty and got them to a point where I think I am happy



Primer also on my shoulders, knees, and ab plate, but no picture of those.

I also did some more filler primer, spot putty and sanding on my gauntlets. Still not 100% happy with those.

I trimmed down my boot armor (you can see part of the heel plate on the right). This is the first time I am working with ABS.



I am sure I will probably have to trim it at the ankle so I can walk.

Looking good :) are you planning on reattaching the heel plate to a piece of sintra? I’m guessing Ursa’s heel armor is similar to Bo’s
