From where i'm sitting that stencil came out perfect!

Good luck on the bolts.  :)

Cannot believe I haven't stumbled upon this build sooner. Your scratch build is stellar. Also, the paint work on the plates turned out amazing! The dragon detailing is a huge stand out.

Following this beautiful build with interest!

Keep up the great work vod! Oya!

So while I wait for the E6000 to dry to the nylon bolts on my bucket I decided it was about darn time I got my plates attached. So, how does this spacing look? I lined it all up with the past markings that had been ok'ed, but I wanted to check one last time before I made it permanent

One of the chest plates is slightly higher or lower than the other. Left is lower(your left) and the right is higher. It's only like 1/4-1/2 inch difference.

Other than that it looks good though?

Looks good to me. Little out as mentioned but that's expected with tape, pretty sure you'll have it all straight when it's permanent.

Well I put my visor in today, and my color/mirror tint isn't sitting the way I want it to at all :( It almost looks crinkly, so I will have to figure out some way to fix it, just not sure exactly how to at this point. I am also having issues with the bolts at the bottom not wanting to stay glued down.

In other news I have my chest plates attached now with chicago screws and velcro (for slight adjustments) and I have started putting together my weapons.

And even more fun news, the husband has finally started drawing up plans for his mando. I think he may be slightly jealous of mine.

It's why I'm building my wife her own kit, I think.  She's not the handy type, but she did cut her own diamond out.

I wish my partner would want to build a kit. I have a hard enough time getting her to costume at all unless it's something like a pirate wench or old Victorian gowns.

That is what I will be doing for hubby. I got the hands on experience for scratch bucket building, and I am the one with sewing skills. It should be fun, but stressful too I am sure haha

So while I am working on my weapons I have been playing with my armor! It is all dirtied up now.









I feel that pictures don't do it justice, but I can't get any better pictures than that until there is sunlight out.

I am also working on how to attach my shnees. I was planning on using parachute clips and leather strips, but now I am wondering: Are the clips allowed to show? I didn't see anything specific in the CRLs and doing a search on the forum shows that most people hide them. Are they considered too modern to be shown? Either way I will be using them, the answer will just be the deciding factor on placement. :)
Gaunts and shnees are almost all painted at this point. Just one more layer of paint and then I can start doing my weathering on those too.
One last quick question- I know hardware store buckets have been used for helmets, but is the material good for making plates with? I am fresh out of sintra and still have to do a back plate (thinking of doing it sectioned). Since they only run $3 at the Ace here I was thinking of picking some up, but don't want to get something that won't work out .

Thank you for all of your help vod!

The parachute clips are fine to be exposed...lots of folks (including myself) use them as closures for their vests & I also use them as closures on my shknees
