Thanks guys I really appreciate the kind words! So I got it finished up for now and sealed this weekend and I’m pretty happy with it! I’m still waiting for the metal parts to come in before I assemble it all together and now I’ve started working on repainting the knee armor! I’ve taken over the dinner table and my wife is actually okay with it lol I’m a lucky dude lol

So I’ve been working on the knees and I might actually get them finished up this evening if work allows it.

I still have to tweak a few things but overall I’m really happy with the knees! They look a ton better than the old ones. Next I’ll probably move on to re-painting the cod and kidney and back-plate! I’ll save the gauntlets for last.

So I started painting my cod and kidney armor and got it knocked out fairly quickly. I used rustoleum silver and masked off the damage then used rustoleum hunt club green as a base while using archive x weyerhaeuser green as the final shade. I will hand paint on the yellow damage using archive x sp armor yellow. Now I’m trying to figure out the weathering on these pieces because in the reference photos it dosent look like there is much or any dark weathering so any suggestions and help there is greatly appreciated! I love minutefetts products and he’s always come through for me but the one thing that bothers me and it probably shouldn’t because no one will ever see it but the top return edge is missing on the kidney armor due to the way it is vac formed lol not a big deal but it does bother me.

Got the back plate knocked out this week! Now it’s on to the gauntlets which I’ve been the most excited to start working on especially with all the new reference photos I’ve been looking at! I will say I probably could have been a bit more accurate on the back plate but it should work for now! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop the jetpack hardware from gouging into the back plate? I just did 3 rounds of sealer to kinda help.

Yeah, nobody will say anything about your backplate being scratched up. I think probably all of us that troop have at least a few scratches on them, and I'm betting the real one did too by the end of filming!! Mine is pretty bad right now!!! LoL You shouldn't have any trouble getting 501st approval...suit it looking top notch!!!! 👍
