    What do you guys think of this? I don't know if I'm loving it. I figured the cod could be kind of my test piece to work out the kinks before moving on to the rest of the armor.

    I'd be satisfied if that was my work personally. It looks good, from what I can see in the pic.

    Go for it! If the rest of the armor paint will look like this, then you will be 100% satisfied. Good job so far!

    Looks really good to me as well, bro. Maybe do some weathering to it and see how you feel about it afterwards? You'd be surprised how the weathering might change your mind on it

    Thanks for the input guys. I had a moment of doubt but now I know I'm on the right track. I actually picked up a different yellow that I think will work much better. I'm going to play around with a couple things before moving on. Especially the blending of the spruce green and hunt club green.

    This is awesome man! Keeps me inspired to work on mine. Would the duct tape idea work for making a mold? Like if you wanted to make your own armor?

    I haven't had a lot of time lately but here's some progress. Just have to do the silver damage and a little more weathering. The yellow should be minimized a little once the silver is on.

    Thank you so much. Your templates were a huge help. I flipped back and forth between them and the reference photos to try to make it as accurate as I could.

    Thanks for the compliments. I really want to like the layering method, but I just can't get the level of detail I want using it, so I went back to all topical. I actually started by doing the silver and liquid mask but didn't like how it was turning out. Topical is just easier for me.

    The flightsuit is weathered with a combo of spray paint and charcoal. Just lightly misted paint and ground up charcoal rubbed into it. If you spray the paint on lightly the fabric stays soft. I used a combo of flat black, gray primer, and a brown color. The vest is actually clean and I'll probably just leave it like that.

    Construction of the knees has begun. These are the RKD ones that come in a bunch of pieces so everything has to be assembled. All the trimming is done, just have to do some filling and sanding before paint.
