New bucket getting closer to first layer of primer... So much work... Never buy from unknown sellers!!!

Blaster shave first round of bondo, with more to come... Sniper should be finished within a week, pistol needs more time to work on the firing mechanics for the electronics.

looking good.   That is your "stunt armor", not your application armor, right?

Yup, I'm on stand-by for my sintra armor until I'm back in vancouver... Want to get some expert advise and an extra set of hands before I move onward... Plates are all ready and shaped (except Cod, Backplate) I just need final tweaks and them mounted to vest before paint. My application vest is a good 2-3 inches shorter than this one, so it'll be a bit of a squeeze for the plates, but it should work... (I'll be like boba with his mid drift vest  :laugh:

This will be my paint job on my application kit as well, so I won't look much different. Doing a lot of work today... One of the nice things about first building with foam is for $5 I now have practice, and direction for the final version.

Final assembly is going down tonight on sniper, going to make some trophies, might be able to get pistol partially assembled pending I find a descent bracket for my scope.

Helmet is getting closer, hopefully I'll have bondo on it by tonight

Sweet.    Sounds like a plan.   The island crew has gotten four sets of sintra done in the last week so they'll be a huge help for you.  I've never worked with the stuff yet so GardenGeek is going to bring me some scrap to play with just so I have an idea how to work it when it comes time to help you.

It was great seeing everyone this past weekend!

Since the armor party I have gone out and picked up the supplies I need to keep moving forward with my kit
-Bondo
-Paints
-Nuts for screws
-T-visor for helmet
-misc. shop supplies (proper dust/paint mask)
(still need to get snaps and velcro)

I've now put my sniper rifle together (minus the scope, still looking for a potential mounting rail) and the sniper is now ready for bondo

Video Here: http://vid1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag127/Gnar-Gnar_Jinn/IMG_2451.MOV_zpse5g2kebm.mp4

I'll be installing electronics in my blaster pistol later this week, hopefully both blasters will be functional and painted by the end of this weekend.

Once the sun comes out later this week I'll bondo my helmet, cod, and blasters.

Cod: welp, as I do not have a heat gun atm, this is on hold (i did cut out the middle piece though)

Flight suit: I've sewn on elastic to hold the flight suit down

Ammo pouches: Repainting the green ones, testing a few techniques today... we'll see how they turn out.

well these pouches are real military pouches... they are real leather with a special coat to prevent mildew ect... So I just used regular spray paint on those. From now it will be a similar process to what i'm doing with my boots...

I use a mix of black, burnt umbar, burnt sienna, and raw sienna acrylic paints mixed with a little water, and sponge apply the mixture to the boots... after a couple of minutes I remove paint with a damp rag, using a very light pressure and twisting motion.

 from there I'll use some burnt sienna to simulate some wear in high spots, then a black wash (using on off black acrylic paint)
