Not going with the wolf build?  Eh, bummer...

That said, I prefer this new design scheme, anyway.  Looks good!  Get to building! :D

Believe me I tried to make one...




Just couldn't get that balance of detail and realism.

Working on a nice backstory as well.

Word. Build for the brigades after you get approved. We need more medics.

Also working on my blaster, going for a heavy pistol, currently repurposing my DLT-20A.

As an extremely biased wolfpack mando, the bucket paint-up you had for the wolf looked awesome! But I do love the direction you're currently going in, keep up the good work!

Check your local hardware store for 4 inch pvc drainage pipe, I used that for my knees. I just sketched out a shape and threw a few shapes on it to make it look more interesting. With any luck you will not have to heat form it much if any to get it wearable. It's also got the benefit of being solid PVC so it's pretty sturdy.

Good idea! Personally not looking forward to spending a ton on knees.

Darn weather preventing any painting progress.

Your other paint ups were good. But this.....this here is a work of art. The attention to detail, the depth, the perfect amount of weathering and damage, and a very cool color scheme.

This is how you do it boys and girls.

That said, I'm glad my outside work is done for the season. :laugh:

Progressing (slowly)

- Ordered vest as well

Still need to:

- finish the paint scratches/damage on the other plates
- Put the blue stripe down the right armor plates
- Various other minor details  :)




Last update for tonight:

Cod close to done:



Boots plates done (test mounted them on some hiking boots)

Awesome looking!!

My only suggestion is to highlight the battle damage (so to put a line of lighterbrown just besides and against the black) this will create a deeper damage effect!

I'd say, don't forget the little scratches, but with how that helmets looking I don't think you'll forget :P Looking forward to seeing the completed paint job on all these.

I will miss all the fiddly detail paintwork from your previous color scheme, but I do like how this is turning out as well.  Keep at it.

I'm very impressed with how this is turning out. Get some grime in those crevasses and your kit will look spectacular.

The rain and cold continues to thwart me. Anyway, question: was looking at the industrial strength Velcro, it says it's great for flat items but not recommended for fabric. Do you just sew it on and it will work, or am I looking at the wrong Velcro? (I believe it's sticky)

From personal experience, the sticky back stuff sticks really well to leather & outside of vinyl, but will not stick to materials like canvas or duck cloth

. I need it to work on duck cloth, any suggestions? Can you mix normal strength cloth Velcro with it or something like that?

You're gonna want sew on velcro for the vest. some people have had decent success with sew on velcro & liquid stitch, I Personally haven't used liquid stitch as I prefer to know the velcro will stay so I end up sewing it on.

Also don't try to sew sticky back velcro, it's almost impossible to get a needle thru by hand & if you try doing it with a machine, you'll gum up your needle & mess up your machine

Exactly this.

I usually buy the sticky stuff for plates and regular sew on for the vest.
