Thanks guys!

Things have been busy in my garage recently, and I am all over the place in projects right now. I've got my gaunts almost all put together-I just have to decide on a closure method. My flack vest has eyelets put into it now so I can attach my plates with chicago  screws. I have also added a knee portion on top of my shnees to flush them out a bit more.


The biggest thing though is PAINTING!  ;D

Obviously things look like they are all over the place here too, but my bucket is all painted, I just have to remove all of the tape tomorrow! All of my stenciling is cut out and ready to put onto my chest and ab plates as well.

(yeah, not as detailed as my drawing, but my hands were starting to think I was insane after an hour of cutting, and I am thinking it will still look ok like this.)

It does not look okay, it looks AWESOME :D
Your build is really interesting, and I'm looking forward to see what's next.

Can't wait to see this finished.

I couldn't wait to see how my bucket turned out, so I got a REALLY early start this morning  :laugh: This is pretty much going to be a picture dump, so I'm sorry about that (but....not too sorry)

Here is what my bucket looks like- the visor is not attached yet. I'm still trying to figure out how I should attach it. putting holes in my visor makes me scared since I only have the one, but I don't really want to hot glue it in either  :-\






Yes you do see my chest plates in the background too! I just knocked it out of the ballpark today with painting and weathering.


Personally I think the weathering looks pretty good. Part of it was what I actually wanted to do, and part of it was the tape pulling up some of the paint, but it adds character and is so random that I think it looks fine. What are your thoughts?

 :o :o :o Nicely done ner vod! The detailing on the chest plates is SUPER clean!

Don't be afraid to put holes in your visor, nylon bolts are the best way to attach the visor, makes it WAY easier to remove if necessary.

Can't wait to see more progress!

I was really hoping it would be since it took several hours to make the stencils for it!  :laugh:

Sounds like I will be needing to go to the hardware store to find nylon bolts. Any suggestions on easily lining up the visor once bolts are in? I think that is the part that scares me most about putting holes in it. I have a horrible record for not aligning things right the first time.

Drill the holes first, make sure to leave plant of overlap to mount the bolts, then mark where the holes are & hot glue the bolts in place

Duh! I think I have been around paint/bondo/resin fumes too much. I have forgotten how to use my thinker.

Thank you very much Bowfanny! I have done a lot of looking at your helmets for motivation, so that is high praise!  :D

Awesome build Ner'vod! I'm thinking I might need an alien build for my second try... after I get experience with sintra, bondo, and the likes.  Your tail, claws, ear armor, mask sculpting....there's nothing I'm not impressed by!
