Really, dude. The adhesive on that stuff is magical.

It is! I tried removing some before fiberglassing my old armor!



I didn't want a range finder, so it got blown off. :D

Very nice! Great job on modding it. I like the idea of the blown off RF. Maybe if you tore a bit off the top of the earcap? Maybe melted it under a flame for a few seconds to give it a scortched blaster bolt look?

Awesome idea! Or even if you just attached the bottom inch or two of a broken range finder.

I have a feeling you won't be happy with that diamond piece.
But I really like the blown-off RF.

Jagen Ordo: Why wouldn't I be happy with it? It's like a prize ribbon. I'm like an award-winning horse or something. :P

I kind of like the wires in lieu of a partially-broken range finder stem-- It looks like it was blown off, then yanked out for good measure.

I did hack a chunk of the ear cap off, but then I put hot glue on there to make it look melted. It's hard to see in any of these pictures, though! The hot glue kind of ended up 'reconstructing' the shape and undermining my broken ear cap plan, too.

I like this bucket a lot, though!

Here's some pictures... I think I'm just about there. Is there anything here that needs major attention?

Looking great! I love the light armor look! I may go that direction myself for my next build. I wasn't sure if you had gloves on at first glance.  :D

Looking great! I like the tied off cloak around your neck. Very nomadish. I like the custom chest plates as well

Suggestions:
Weather up the soft parts.

Your left shoulder looks higher than the right. I cant tell if thats the way its supposed to be. 

I would switch out the small red belt for a bigger one to fill in that area.

EDIT: Wow i couldnt even tell you had gloves til Jagen said it!

Yeah, I think some good weathering on the soft parts is all this kit is lacking.

Thanks for checking back in on this, everybody! It means a lot to me.

The chest piece doesn't bother me at all. It looks sharp and pointy, but I've done my share of moving around with it and I haven't even noticed that it was there.

The shoulders seem to sit a little uneven because they're shaped a little differently. The one on my left shoulder is Chro's, and it's made of Sintra instead of the softer plastic I've used for the other pieces.

A bigger belt sounds like a great idea, too. I'll have to see what I can find!

I would absolutely love to weather the cape and other fabric, but I'm not sure where to start. The bottom edge of the cape is unfinished to let it fray, and the rest of the fabric is also unfinished. Can somebody share their fabric-weathering wisdom with me?
