Thanks guys  :D  So a quick update before I head to work.  The holster for my blaster got modified yet again.  It wasn't sitting properly and was way too tight (actually started to chip paint) so this is what I came up with.  I put wires in the ends to keep it's shape, and I'll add a thigh strap eventually. 



I've also started to paint the thighs, knees, shins, and cod.  This is a cool pic I took to show you the color spectrum of this paint.  I must say that it looks much better on a white surface than a black like my pilot helmet.  I LOVE how it changes..


I'll update more when I do some weathering tonight  :)

Thanks vod! Grats on the OM status today too!

that thigh ;D love it
A little thigh always gets attention  :laugh: Here's a diferent pic not using my cell phone camera, despite the glare you can see the blue turn to purple


Knee's and shins in this pic.  Shins are ready to be weathered and greebled, then attached to the boots.  I weathered the knees tonight, just need a touch up and some clear coat then they'll be good for now.  They'll be replaced eventually...

Shins look good nice shape!

What is wrong with those knees? Just add a lower piece to create a curve and build up the sides for darts launchers and whamo!

Yes I'm still here and plugging away  ;D  This is what I've done since I last posted.

Weathered thighs and cod, now just have to add greebs to the cod and attach it to the butt plate.  As I'm posting this though Im realizing I might  have to weather the top of the cod a bit more.



Boots are 90% done, just have to scrape up the leather a bit and add some greebs to the shins.  I also made some heal plates as well.  Now when I say add greebs to the shins and cod I'm going to add the heads of allen bolts to give it the effect that those silver plates are bolted on. 



Also made a thigh bandolier, I started painting the cylinders but didn't take a pic yet.


You're probably wondering what that skulls doing up there, that's my next little 'project'.  It's going to be a lighted symbol to cover my belt buckle  ;D


Both symbol and housing are made from sintra.  The idea is to float the symbol in the housing about 1 cm from the back, throw a couple blue leds behind it to give it a nice glowing effect.

Shins look good nice shape!

What is wrong with those knees? Just add a lower piece to create a curve and build up the sides for darts launchers and whamo!
Thanks vod! You're right, they're not as bad as I first thought, found some good images and got some ideas  :)

Well that's it for now, let me know what you guys think, good or bad!

Oops I almost forgot, I got my bucket today too! This is just a rough trim..

Thanks guys  :D  I appreciate the kind words and feedback. Can you tell I didnt use masking fluid or toothpaste for the weathering?  Good ol' fashion 400 grit sand paper works just as well for me  :laugh: buuuut now that I have the helmet Im pretty close to finalizing my chest pattern. I'll get pics up a little later.

I love the belt buckle idea - what kind of belt are you attaching it on?

That's why the weathering looks good, you did it properly not carefully :P

Masking is great for canon builds but I feel it's best to be a whole bunch more random with customs, like you've done.
