Looking good vod  :D. This idea keeps reminding me of what something would look like if you combined the thruster pack from Halo and a set of Tribes: Ascend armour  8)

Never seen the Tribes armor, but I'm glad you like it nonetheless!

Looking to see how it looks once it's all painted up.

With any luck I'll have pictures of it after a few of the base coats tomorrow night.

Thruster plates needed a bit more work than I thought they did last night, so I only managed to get another coat of primer down to see how my sanding looked. I'm pleased with how it's turning out, I think I'm ready to start my silver coats now. I need to touch up some rough spots on the thrusters, which I think I'm painting separately before attaching the whole thing together:

Got my thruster plate painted some more last night, here's a pic of it next to the lower half of my back plate:



The red on the thruster plate came out kind of glossy for some reason, I'll hit it with one more coat of red before I start going into the grey decals. I should probably hit the lower half with another coat as well, it seems kind of off compared to the rest of my pieces. I also rather like the nozzles silver, I may just keep them like that and add scorch marks later on. Thoughts?

I love the look, considering doing something similar, but...

Where would you keep the fuel? Do you intend to have a fuel tank somewhere?

Where would you keep the fuel? Do you intend to have a fuel tank somewhere?

As of right now, my BS excuse is that I keep the fuel in compressed compartments spaced throughout the interior of the plate. These compartments are only accessible from the inside of the plate, so I have to take it off to refuel it.

In actuality, I might go back and add some obvious fuel source in the middle later on, but unfortunately I'm rushing on a rapidly approaching deadline to get this kit wearable. Before I attempt to submit an OM application, I will make many quality control alterations and adjustments, have no fear.

What a cool idea!  Awesome!!! 

Thanks vod!

Looks good! You could always just add a little "filler port" greeblie somewhere so that you could claim to hook the pack up to that to replenish.
