Minor progress worth sharing:

Rub'n Buff!

Finished priming the back plate, so it was finally time to try rub'n buffing. Two friends who are experts at it, and one of which is an approved Jango, said it looks great, but we'll see...

First coat:







Second coat:

Sorry for the delay, but now it's time for updates!

Starting with the beautiful parts and accessories I received from OriKad.

My NME jetpack, all finished:





















WESTAR-34s:

















Earcaps and rangefinder stalk:







Ammo belt:











Holsters:











And now, for what I did.

Preliminary suit up with the jetpack and back plate, to test them:









And more rub'n buff!

Cod:









Thigh plates:







Shoulder plates:







Collar plate (which I know might need to be replaced):







Gauntlets:

























Gauntlet parts:







(this one below needs work, I know)











Shin plates:







So, vode, if ANYTHING, and I mean anything, needs work, PLEASE tell me.

And please excuse the large amount of photos. Wanted to make sure all the details were visible, especially for criticism.

That's all, folks. Thank you!   :jango:

Finally, some real progress!

If no one has anything to say about them, I think I can safely call these done.

The girth belt needs a new loop since the other one didn't fit, but that's an easy fix. And heads up, it has a bit of give to tuck the cod under; other than that, it fits perfectly.












Flight suit close-ups:

(Indoor artificial light)








(Indoor natural light)










(Outdoor natural light)










(and a few extras taken several weeks ago just in case)



(indoor natural light)



(indoor artificial light & possible camera flash)



(outdoor natural light)

The suit looks a tad more pink in person, but that's also an easy fix if anyone thinks it needs more blue.

Minor progress:









Visor/mandible area on the helmet is pretty much good to go. Gonna fix the seam and add another coat of rub'n buff, and I need to get the cheeks down to a matte texture.



Added the screws to the exhaust port, though a little bit of the surface cracked. Just gonna add some bondo and paint, and the jetpack should, at long last, be done.











Knees are coming along, and finally close to rub'n buffing, BUT, if worst comes to worst, I will resin cast them, or buy a set. Depends on what the experts think.

Not much in the way of progress, and bad quality photos, I know, but I figure it's still worth showing. Finally finished the knees. Now I just need to know if they'll pass muster.
