Well after the successful color and weathering test yesterday morning I spent the rest of the day finishing the red parts of the armor. I also went back and weathered my pistols (I'll have to get a pic of those later) because they were looking a little too shiny for my taste. The best news however was that late last night I got an e-mail saying my flight suit has shipped which is about 3-4 weeks ahead of schedule!

Armor pics before the Tattoos:







And after a trip to the tattoo parlor...



Gonna start work on the shoulder spikes today and start painting up the black/ gray armor parts.

Well I wrapped up paint on everything I have in the shop at the moment. Nothing as exciting as the first batch, this is all gray and black. I did final assembly on the gauntlet however and I'm pretty happy with the end result.





And a test fit (flash was on in this shot):



and a shot of the pistols post weathering...



And finally the last bits on the shoulders. I did an initial test fit using .1 ABS and wasn't really happy with the result. So, I grabbed the MDF that I used for the base of the comlink and started tracing out the patterns. I left  a little leg on the bottom of each blade and cut a slot in the shoulders to give them a bit more positive attachement. I also took the dremel and sharpened the blades to give them some depth.





The flight suit should be here as early as today, so I can start working on attachments and weathering.  My helmet is also sckeduled for delivery so I should have things to keep me rolling over the next week.

Mmmm, excellent work. The only thing I can find to critique is that the return edge on the chest armour looks a little too much to me. Not a deal breaker by any means though.

Thanks!

The belt comes with the kit from kwdesigns. It is ABS and has a concealed Velcro connection in he back.

Those return edges are vac formed to. That depth and are pretty consistent with the animated renders. I definitely trust Kevin's eye for detail and sculpting.

Step 1:



Step 2:



Step 3:




Couldn't find any good reference pictures of the back of the helmet so I made something up that looked like it would go with the design. Took a page from the diamond tattoos down Maul's nose.




Step 4: The Horns....to be continued.

So I've been playing around with my flight suit a lot this week with various dyes and bleach and paints. I have something that I now feel is passable but I think I'm going to order a new flight suit in a slightly different color. This one was way too yellow for my taste. More on that later.
