So a week of cure time passed and i began applying liquid latex masking to the kit to simulate damage






DISASTER STRIKES


The paint color i purchased and what came out of the can were very different:




I wanted green, what i got was an unholy 1950's refrigerator. I panicked here, all my hard work and sanding was coming crashing down. But I settled down and started brainstorming. I bounced some ideas off of my local rus, and my mando medic concept was born.



The hard part was waiting for the paint to cure:

It greened up a smidge in direct sunlight, but not much.

Next my steady handed partner began adding the dove grey detail parts and the medical logos by sketch, crikuting and then free handing the symbols








I then let that cure for a few days and the remasked the chrome on the helmet and clear coated everything. I alway clear coat before weathering in case i don't like how it turns out. That way i can wipe it off without damaging the paint job. I will do another sealing coat ander i apply the weathering so it doesn't rub off.



That is everything for now.

Next steps are:
-Make the sash
-finish the vest velcro
-screw on the helmets blast shield
-Weather the armor and the soft parts. seal the weathering in
-Install the helmet visor
-finish us the jetpack and de-10's
