So the armor is in and fits great due to the masking tape not wanting to hold it looks lopsided but from what I see it is the correct size

it looks like the chest and stomach plates could use a bit more curve.  Maybe that's just me though.

Yes I was thinking the same thing but mostly just on the ab plate the black shirt does not do the picture justice

rust paint looks awesome.... BUT if it helps Games Workshop paints has some special effects acrylics for this effect. If they are good for my stupid expensive plastic crack toy soldiers surely they are good enough for armor. Typhus Corrosion and Ryza's Rust are the name of the effect paints

It looks like braided rope right now, but once it's painted I'm sure it'll look great

 Chest plates seem a little wide but that could be from them being a bit off because of the tape. Before you mount them or get too heavy into the paint process try to take another pic just to double check the size and alignment. Las thing you want to is to spend days on a kickass paint job only to be told your plates need to be trimmed/shaped.

For paint I like Krylon for it's fast drying time. They also make a "rust" color that I used for my armor. Rustolium is good too but it takes a bit longer to dry.

The weld lines do look kind of braided or stitched. But it's a cool effect and I'm sure it will look really col once it's painted up.

Keep up the progress!!

OK here is a list of recent progress the plates shifted again on the shirt but you can see that with adjusted spacing they are correctly sized .

The "weld" looks much better with the paint on. They seem like a good fit but it looks like there is too much space between everything.

The weld does look a lot better, but throw a bit of blue and green streaking around the outside and inside edges of the weld line, it doesn't quite look right yet IMHO

Agree with all of this.

Everything does look much better. Looking forward to seeing a plate placement picture with the vest.

That paint is wonderful. Emulate the heat with the blue and that will really set it off. I would've really liked to see that about plate have more of a curve but hopefully with the vest it'll sort itself out. It's looking great overall though, keep it up!

If you wanna carry the lightsaber hilt, it has to be as a trophy. You're gonna have to make it look REALLY damaged, like cut in half & blown up damaged
