Im still hanging in there :) here is my latest progress  im going for a brow accent in the top sides :) and iv also finally bindoed it :) il get to sanding this evening or this weekend depending in my work :).
 Ohhh and a cool trick i used to countersink the screws was to get a grinding stone with my dremmel and start grinding the top of the clscrew down it will eventually get hot and tue bucket will stert to melt around the clacerw head ;). Pay close attention that you dont ge tit to hot it melts all  the way through :)

Sorry its been awhile since i posted my progress. Here is  where im at atm. I primed it and then adjusted my weathering i did with tue dremmel by using plastiwood filler which hardens like bondo without the mixing ;). Once that was to my liking i primed it again with a fe wcoats and the hit it with the undercoat of metalic ;) its been raining alot so i have not had time to add my final coats of paint and do the weathering and blast marks :)
 






There are alot of weathering marks as you can tell i want this to look loke its been through a battle and then some

That's okay Vod Life does that to us all at some point. What are your favorite colors/ colors of the area your Mando is from and your Mandos heritage. Those might help get you set for color.

Greens are good! I'd say mix it up a little and try a couple greens. Browns and reds also lend well to a green base.

Looks like the weathering started early haha i was applying a coat of base color and it started the sprinkle a little :) it will add a nice effect in the end :) you can see the water droplets in the pic below.



I will be close to town today so i will be able to pickup the rest of my paint and then wait for the weather to clear up before i weather and paint my bucket !!
