    Thanks for the backup Brian I tried to speak up before it was painted

    I knew something didn't look quite right. But nevertheless, the offer of the replacement part still stands. On me. I can have it shipped immediately due to your time constraints if this helps.

    And just a note for "GP", the slot "impressions" even though a general guide to cut, they are more based on Shackman's lights. That's what was available at the time. Of course, they're made to Brak's specs. When you said they were Chris' lights, I shut up and "moved along" ... as I've never owned a set and didn't know what to say Glad to know that it was just a simple misunderstanding. I wouldn't have thought Chris' would have been "off" at all. Good to hear

    My goodness the forum is really "choking" tonight ! Internal server errors up the wazooo !!! It's taking me forever to post this !!!!!!!!

    Hi Scott,
    If you're getting a new chest piece from FP, here's a little diagram I made to take the chest light measurements. Hope this is understandable.



    When you're measuring the bottom segments, just measure the part where the LED segments will actually show. Does that make sense?

    OK, here goes:

    A= 1.63in
    B= 0.15in
    C= 0.35in
    D= 0.30in

    I double checked these numbers, so hopefully this is on the money.

    Re: Lucksy31's FP3 Armor Progress

    Cool! Thanks for the new measurements.

    UPDATE: January 3rd

    Well, it's way too late for pics tonight (I'll get some tomorrow or Saturday at the latest), but I've pretty much completed everything I can do until I receive Scott's decals.
    I have done the right (dented) shoulder, and half of the left shoulder. I'll have to wait for the decal to place the remainder of the damage.
    Same thing with the right chest plate. Just waiting for the decal to finish detail painting the upper portion of the piece.

    I could do the black misting, but I'm also waiting till the new left chest plate arrives. I like to mist all my pieces at the same time. That way, it'll be consistent.
    Hopefully the decals will arrive soon!

    Hey guys, the left plate replacement was sent out yesterday ... it should be there no later than Monday. But I would think there is a good possibility it could be there Saturday, it's a particular zone that's pretty speedy, and it's west coast like me, no brainer

    Re: Lucksy31's FP3 Armor Progress

    UPDATE: January 6th

    OK, didn't get a chance to get any pics yesterday, but things wouldn't have looked too different anyway. I got Scott's decals yesterday, and applied them to the shoulder and right chest plate. After applying them, I was able to finish painting those 2 pieces and continue on into the final weathering phase.
    Here are the shoulders. These pics are outdoors, but it's pretty cloudy today and I don't know if the colors will translate like they should. The shoulder bells have been shaded with a mix of orange/reddish-brown pastels, and then sealed with dull coat. The bell with the decal was "reverse masked," leaving the decal exposed so I could mist it with some gray-brown and a little flat black. All I have left to do on this is go back with some flat white and do some final detailing on the decal.





    With the decal in place on the chest plate, I finished painting the silver/yellow damage, and black misted it. (I went ahead and black misted all the other 'green' armor, too.)
    Same as the shoulder, I'll go back with some flat white and paint some small details on the decal.



    So if it weren't for the fact that I'll be redoing the left chest plate, this set of armor would be done tomorrow! Hopefully the new chest plate will get here tomorrow and I'll be able to finish up within the next few days.
    Almost there!

    Re: Lucksy31's FP3 Armor Progress

    Thanks guys! It's almost done now.
    The weathering on the shoulders/knees is just about done. Now that it's clearcoated, I'll go back and add a couple of small silver scratches, but that's about it.

    UPDATE: January 7th

    While I'm waiting for the new piece, I did some additional work on a couple of the pieces.
    On the shoulder and chest decals, after they were misted, I took a very fine brush and some flat white and did some scratches. This finishes those parts.





    I also added the lighter green scratches on the ab plate. I really like the look of these.





    Once I get the new left chest piece, it will have a couple of these lighter scratches as well.

    Re: Lucksy31's FP3 Armor Progress

    Yeah I'm doing the whole armor set. . . guess I hadn't posted pics of the back plate yet. I'll have to do that.

    QUICK UPDATE: January 7th

    The new chest plate is here! Yay! FP even "final trimmed" the piece instead of letting me have all the fun of doing it. All I need to do is use Scott's new measurements to cut the light slots, and then paint it up.
    Wish I didn't have to go to work soon! I'm anxious to get started.
    Thanks for getting the new part out so quick, Chris.
