Helmet is as good as it is going to get for now so while the weather is nice, I'm moving on to my torso.    Back piece waiting to cure.   one or two more skins of filler then I'll be switching over to the spot putty and filler primer.  I've learned better than to predict an ETA so... yeah.   progress!

Sorry for flooding you vode, but I'm thinking with my penchant for getting distracted, I figure constant stream of updates may keep me moving.   I made some wicked awesome progress on the back.   I'm calling it done; I've fixed the rough-looking wing on the bottom and I'll be cutting it off at the vertical line so didn't go further than that.  started to mud up the chest tonight but too late for pics.

Back is finished and primed, going to wait until I detach it from the chest before painting.  Working late tonight so I'll pick up with the chest this weekend!

Thanks, Squirrel!   Chest is several coats in at this point and I am starting to work on my blaster again between drying sessions.  Looking for opinions on the barrel end.   I found a few greebs I like but not sure which way to go with it.



or



but why choose, eh?

The chest plate is taking shape.  I hope to have some paint down on it this week but the rest of the week will be crazy at work so we'll see what comes to pass.


time lapse:







I like to switch to blue filler hardener every few skins of filler to get a better idea of how much I'm actually building up with each successive layer.

and, after saying that I went and primed it before taking a picture to demonstrate my intent on that one.    It is really coming together and I got excited :-P








I think I'll be laying the flat black base coat tonight, may even have it bronzed before bed, if all goes well.

yup, that's the plan.  I'll take a hacksaw to it once it is all painted and ready to go, then add an over-the-shoulder strap and one around my gut.   I figured it would be easier to sand and paint as a single unit though.  Besides, this let me knock the backplate around and chip up some of the paint for easy weathering while working on the chest :-P

Id reccomend using a diamond wheel on the dremal, the hacksaw might be too rough and delaminate the layers?
