Gotta say, the kit has really grown on my, especially the colors! Can't wait to see the helmet all done!

Thanks, Vod! It's grown on me too... As odd as that sounds. The entire time working on it, I was second guessing myself and considering starting over. But seeing it come together has really rekindled my love for it!

Okay so I read back a few updates ago (Apr-12) and it looks like everything is on track.

The blackwash is great, really hard to screw it up since all you do is dirty everything.

Shoes should be ok but if not try and find spats, half chaps, or gaiters.

Both gauntlets look good but the screen needs the branding covered.

The keyslot area looks great, nice find on the greeblies. Looking closely at the controller trigger buttons I think I see the R1 and L1 still, if so that needs to be smoothed out.

The tzitzit should be no problem. Like Aria said they look like another accessory.

Thanks for the tips! I was planning on hiding the L1 and R1 with spot glaze putty tonight. (check and check). I knew it needed done still. I've also been throwing around the idea of gators. I'm not sure that I'm thrilled with how my legs/feet look with the rest of the kit. I haven't made any or even looked for any quite yet, but it may be something I do before it's all said and done.

Ah! It looks so good!!  ;D I can't wait to see it!!

(also, isn't is great that it's FINALLY nice enough outside to not have to wear shoes all the time?  :laugh: )

The buckets looks amazing...I love the triggers.  :) I can't wait to see it all painted up!

The gaunts looks fantastic. And those pouches are great...a couple of the guys up here have those same ones, and I rely on them heavily for carrying things.  :laugh: They're very nice to have and they look good with the kit.

I'm content with flip-flops or being barefoot as much as possible in the summer. I love it haha! And thank you! SOON the bucket will get some paint. I'm almost ready for it!

Now, for the updates... My gauntlets are done! (except for the closures) I may touch up a few more things and then hit them with blackwash, but this is pretty much it for these babies. I covered the branding on the screen with black paint. Lazy, I know Haha. But here they are!





And the blasty one:





I added the short barrel (a faucet aerator) above the "darts" and the two blaster barrels to the front.

If I've missed anything that can improve on what I've done, let me know!

Thank you! Do you have a finished or an ongoing WIP that I could check out? I really am a fan of the scout style visors, but I want to see the whole kit!

There's nothing wrong with being barefoot!

Hahahaha. I couldn't just throw it away. I had plans to fix it but that never happened. Now it's stuck to my arm.

Woohoo! Everything but my backplate is attached to my vest. The negative that I noticed is how crooked my shoulders sit. I can thank an old skateboarding injury that I never got physical therapy for.  :-X my plates look a little crooked because of it, but there's not much I can do. I still need to fit the collar plate over my traps a little better, but that should be easy.

So. Close!!

I was wondering if that ab plate was going to be silver...  :P

Collar plate looks a little off, like you noted, but other then that it looks good. Shoulder bells do sit crooked, but if that's from an old injury, there's not too much you can do about it. Just maybe let the app team know that's why they sit that way. I can't wait to see some paint on that bucket!!  :D

Shoulders look to sit at about the same angle mine do :P (Partial dislocation a year or so) Make sure you check the spacing round that ab, otherwise, looking good.

Haha. No. It'll get paint. I needed to get everything secured to the vest so I could trim it up properly but I got that all done lat night. Everything is lined up on both sides as far as placement on the vest. Holy smokes though. And the forecast is calling for rain here. Go figure lol.

Did you have any issues from the app team with your posture? And the fang on the left of the picture (my right) looks a little close, but that's because I need to put two more outside snaps on the ab plate.

There's a box on the app form about medical conditions that may need to be taken into consideration. Check that and then if needed we will pm for details. We judge on what we know about - check the box, we know to ask if the consideration is for the shoulders, don't check it, we'll tell you to straighten them :P

Exciting news!

I went from this



To this



I still have a little more to do with it, but it's almost there. I have my visor ready to go, it just needs installed. After that, some final touches and padding and it's done!

Thank you! I pretty much finished it today!

I couldn't leave it alone. I had to "unweather" it by covering up some of the scuffs on the face. I'M MUCH happier with it now. I painted my antenna and the side buttons, and well as painted my ears copper. The visor isn't permanently in, but it will be soon. If it's not raining too bad tomorrow, it'll get blackwashed. :)

It feels good to be about done!







After getting OM (whenever that may be) I'll be adding voice amps and all that jazz.

Can't see it on the pics - might want to give it a few scuffs with some sandpaper too before blackwashing. Gives a better variety of damage than just chipping. Also the blackwash settles in scratches really nicely.

Yessir! I've added some scuffs and light passes to dull everything down and make it more uniform.

My next question. Is it preferred to attach my buckles/straps on the inside or outside of my shins? I've got it like this at the moment.

Typically the attachments are on the inside, but being that yours are nicely finished you could really go either way.

They're well finished and blend really nicely, so I'd go for leaving them. Mainly they're inside to hide raw edges etc.
