    I got a good start on the chest armor and collar. Big thanks to my good friend Garrett (terminal fettler) for some good guidance before this with some of his magic with painting. I was happy he set down his unicorn statues and took a break from his synchronized swimming lessons long enough to help me.

    First layer was krylon metallic silver. Masked silver damage with Humbrol maskol, then the US medium green. Then misted grimy black in areas. Remove masking fluid and this is where I am. I'm pleased with the results. Pictures are with and without flash.

    Very nice. Are you planning to mist any other colours over the green?

    What's the difference with the BM v3 armor? I should be getting mine very soon and I'm curious what is different from v2. Hopefully it's a little bigger, or in going to have to sell it because it won't fit my frame (6'4" 240lbs).

    His armor is on the smaller side, but the right size. more accuracy refinements were done to the v3. His new backplate looks a lot more accurate now.

    Dead land. It's the testors rattlecan us medium green. It's close to my house and cheaper, I've had good luck with it.

    Thank you for the kind words guys!

    It's vac formed ABS vs fiberglass. If it doesn't fit you then you should definitely go with RKD

    Ok big update on the armor today. I added all the yellow zinc chromate, brown pastel markings, and the acrylic black flakes on center diamond and right chest piece. I'm all finished EXCEPT the Humbrol green 78 on the ab and upper left chest piece.

    I found this funny today. I found old pics of my first painted armor and knees. I'd like to share them with you to show you how much TDH and great people on here have helped me since 5 years ago. Am I a gifted painter, absolutely not but I feel I've gotten better with everyone's help here on this great forum. Enjoy and laugh.

    Which method did you use for weathering your soft parts? Airbrush?

    I'm making my attempt at weathering this weekend and was curious as yours came out great!

    Yes, I used an airbrush and the color "grimy black" polyscale. I used it on all the soft parts to include the flak vest even though the flash on the camera kind of hides it.

    The armor looks great (the old one too) and your mannequin start to look like Boba Fett. Keep up the awesome job!
