What paint did you use for the orange/bronze?  I really like the way it looks, and I'm considering swapping my flatter orange for something with more of a metallic sheen like what you've got.

Thanks Solus! I've been looking at the protector as reference for the past year during the upgrades. Hopefully I'll be able to knock out a Jetpack and backplate and get working toward Protector status! :)

So, just thumbing through the costume gallery when I come across THIS GORGEOUS KIT.
Sorry if I'm speaking out of turn here but I just had to say something.
This armor has among the best looking fits (in my opinion) that I've seen on here so far. Just wow.
I MUST KNOW YOUR SECRET xD
For real though, this is exactly the fit I hope to achieve with my armor once it's complete. If you have any personal tips or advice, it will be heeded. Kandosii! Ori'jate!

Thanks Avix.
All I can really tell you is never give up. Sounds easier said than done. I started in early 2012 and have gone through several versions and upgrades. There's been times I wanted to sell what I could and scrap the rest, but in the end I'm glad I didn't. Just keep up the research, browse the boards, and build an encyclopedia of Star Wars reference photos to help your eye for details and subtleties that make a costume stand out. 

The secret is hidden within yourself and your Will to do what must be done to complete your goals. That goes with anything in real life. Good luck, friend!

Wow...I haven't posted here in a while!

Repainted one of my gauntlets!

*Images removed thanks to photobucket*

I plan on getting more pics taken of the upgraded kit. I had a mischievous little bolt that came loose during the shoot and caused that top corner part of the plate to raise up a bit. Next armor workshop we have I'll get the new photos taken. I added the Imperial Officer style buckle to reflect on my character's prior occupation for the Empire. I also got my hands on a lovely Hyperfirm DLT-19. Going to repaint it a bit to remove some of the 'shine' then re weather it.


*Images removed thanks to photobucket*

Thanks to Sabine's mention of an Imperial academy on Mandalore combined with my own involvement with the 501st as a TK, I wanted to include bits and pieces of Imperial uniform 'decorating' the armor.
Cassus is in a post-RotJ timeframe, and TK-13340 is Cassus during the Galactic Civil War serving the Empire.

Love your weathering on everything, it looks really natural and the flow makes sense throughout the kit. Great work!
