Alright, I know most of you have given up on me, but I broke out the gear and scraped off the inches of dust and got back to work this weekend.   Life is more or less as normal as it is going to get and I'm itching to get some projects off my table.   Time for this bucket to meet its maker.  or this maker to meet its bucket... or something...

Assuming my resin hasn't died a slow, painful death over the last [holy crap has it been a year!??!!] I'll be posting progress pretty regularly now.

YES! ;D At last you have returned to us! :P Looking forward to the continuation of Mr. Ptay!

I promise not to flood with one-shot updates, but proof I really am back in bla.. well.. .grey.     Another round of filler, sanding and priming tonight.  I'll stick with it.   I have one more spot in the back that I really need to work out and another little bump here and there but overall, I'm almost happy with it.  [[for those who forget, the stripes are temporary filler that will come out and be channels, not spots that need more sanding]]

Sanding, painting, sanding, priming, sanding... nothing major enough to show in pics, but trying to get some of the angles better on the bucket and a few dips, divots, etc worked out and some minor delaminating of the 'glass I need to take care of... I'm working.. I promise.     I may switch modes and get to work on the chest now and call this "good enough for now" but I'm trying too hard to get it perfect... at least the chest piece would have pic-visible changes worth sharing.

Unless You are going for a casting master... this looks better than most already, finish wise.
work with what pits are left when it comes time for weathering. a dab of silver with a toothpick, wipe excess and done. It'll look great.

I'd ask for the rest of the armor but .. well ... 2020?  ;D

Pad it, paint it, visor it and stick a fork in her. she's done.  8)

Had thoughts of using this as a master for a rotocasting since the solid fiberglass method weighs a good bit, but ibthink for now I'll put the sandpaper away.  Bucket band shoulders done, chest and back both started... I may be done in time for C36 at this rate!

Hey I cant talk too much... 3.5 years in the making and my gauntlets are STILL not done.
I HATE gauntlets. Seriously.

I'm moving on to painting and electronics for awhile though.
At this rate my gaunts and boot armor will be done in 3-4 years.

next time take pics with the light to your face, not to your back. ;) the black helmet with black visor is especially hard to make out under bad lighting. from what I can see it looks really great

doesn't really matter at this moment.
Shape,scale and fit look excellent bud!
Despite the mandibles you seem to have a good amount of movement.
