    Jun 5, 2015, 10:05 PM - RKD armor paint up #1

    Hey everyone, it's been a long while since I've been able to get on here! I got my upgraded armor from RKD what seems like almost a year ago and here I am finally getting it put together. I dont have much in the ways of step by step right now, but here's what I've been able to throw together so far! Haven't started the weathering or fine details just yet but please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and advice, thanks! I'll be adding more as I make progress. And it's good to be back!

    I would have my shoulder bells up here as well but I had a catastrophic paint failure earlier today and had to strip them down to bare base and start over.

    Thanks, working on redoing the shoulders now, I want to get all the pieces painted before I start to dirty and weather them so I get an even look to them.

    I think it's a great start. Good job with the layered painting and battle damage

    Here's the weekends progress, after a disaster with the shoulders I was able to rebound a bit. Next will be the back plate and kidney. Then some weathering and detailing to really bring it to life.Click image for larger version.

    Mannequin test fit and some weathering on the chest set, thoughts or suggestions, more/less weathering, good enough?

    Looks good, but I'd post a pic in sunlight. That'll show the weathering better(and if it needs more).

    The weathering was added after the mannequin fit so it's not going to show in those shots. The table has pretty good lighting, I'll get some pics of other angles but it's pretty well lit

    Here's a few more shots, the shoulders are still a little glossy, still have to hit them with a light sanding and matte clear coat

    So its taken some time, had another new toy to play with, but Ive finally gotten around to finish painting my RKD armor. Still some minor things to finish it up like straps on the backs of the knees, but the majority of the labor intensive stuff is done. Here you go guys.
