    I'm not sure what kind of helmet it is actually. And yea I really need to do alot of weathering on all my stuff. Jim came over the other night to take a look at it and show me his suit and it gave me alot of ideas on weathering and putting everything together.

    That looks much better bud!

    Dont forget that there are some scratches and chips on the lower right of the armor.

    Hmm... whats the red stuff you're using for filling the cod? I see a tube nearby but I can't make out what it is. I've only ever used bondo for filling and mixing and applying is always a pain for me.

    Tired of updating the first post haha. New test fit. Forgot my neck seal at a friends and I forgot to put on my knees and shin tools. Got too excited that I received my gloves today.

    Killer bro! I think you should dye your flightsuit a shade more blue.

    UPDATE!
    I know I post too many of these. Every time I get something new I want to put it on with my whole suit! haha. Added my braids, flightsuit pockets, blaster almost complete and I got my knees and shin tools on also. But I was in a hurry in my excitement and put the shoulder bells on the wrong sides

    Re: 2nd armor set (updates now in last post!)

    dude, very nice work man!! one thing i will add, is that the right shoulder could be a little more orangish and getting some more grime and grundge on the flightsuit, but other than that, looks great! i cant wait to suit up fully! congrats my friend!

    So my wife finished my vest and neckseal a few weeks back and I finally got to weathering all the soft parts today. he's what it looks like all together. I need to add some darker tones in some spots but for the most part I'm pretty stoked on it.

    Re: 2nd armor set (updates now in last post!)

    So I tried on my BFUK jet pack for the first time. I've only painted the main colors and haven't weathered it yet. This was also my first time putting my flightsuit on since I dyed it. The thigh pockets didn't dye that good so I'm going to have to figure out what to do to fix them. I'm waiting on my boots from Evo and I should be pretty close to done. I need to attach my sidearm and then also weather my flightsuit again. Let me know what you think.



    My father in law wanted me to take a picture with him so I guess this is my first bounty? eh?
