Got help from CadBane on putting the buttonholes on the flak vest...thanks Mike!


Decided to test fit the JP harness with the armor.



Made some progress on filling the holes in the right gauntlet.  Added the primer and will paint them next.

On the left shoulder, I sanded off the black streak and repainted it.  Some work will be needed to blend the new and old paint.

Now that I’ve adjusted the armor, I’ll sand the return edges down and mount them with the eyelet method.

Things have been slow lately...waiting on the M5 screws to arrive, for attaching the armor and bleaching the flightsuit to lighten it up.

Finished some small details and fixes.
Added velcro to the knees and ABS plastic to beef up the thin parts.



Took down the return edges on the armor.



Filled the switch holes in the right gauntlet.



Removed the black streak on the left shoulder.


Can’t wait to finish bleaching the flightsuit and begin weathering it!

More weathering...puss and boots, I mean gloves and boots.

Picked up the acrylics and followed the thread on weathering CA boots.










Finished the gloves too.

Got some weathering done...flight suit and spats.  Need to do the hip pouches next.

Started with blue mixed with a tiny bit of charcoal and did the shoulders, under the short sleeves and flaps on the thigh pockets.


Added the burnt umber and straw highlights.


Added charcoal next.


Finished with applying crushed charcoal for the detailed grime.


For the spats, I started with a wash of blue, then used crushed charcoal for the weathering.



My finished helmet comes in this week and the JP should follow shortly afterwards.  Just need to put a few things together and I’ll be done!

Suiting up test...

I didn’t get a chance to attach the wookie braids and shin tools, but here’s most of it.  Jet pack comes in this week!

I need to adjust a few things like the center diamond and cape.  Hoping to submit photos next weekend.

Jetpack has arrived and got some much needed help from Mike Halstead on getting it fitted!




I’ve also made adjustments to the armor, so it’s all secure and placed better now.  Shin tools are also in...just need to attach the braids.

Planning on submitting pics for approval this weekend!
