    OK! After going to WLC (boooo), Disney World (YAY!), and the field a whole bunch of times in between, I've finally been able to get the main paint jobs done on both my cod piece and kidney plate (It's no longer a butt-plate )

    Please excuse how TERRIBLE the lighting in these pictures are. We just got snowed on (again) and it was already getting dark, so the colors seem REALLY off, but you guys get the general idea









    Here are a few "shot by shot" comparisons of certain details I tried to exactly (heh, nothing's EXACT) replicate from the AOSW exhibit photos.

    Cod-piece dent:


    Kidney-plate damage 1:


    Kidney-plate damage 2:


    Have a few more little details to include (scratches, touch ups on the yellow) and then its onto pastel rubs and weathering! Can't wait.

    Take care guys.

    great work! my cod is aosw style, but i filled the dent for mom compatibility. i've always thought the dent down there was pretty cool though. you know that it represents a real "i'm glad i had this armor on" moment.

    I do like the way you did the transfer paper and tracing here...Worked out better than the helmet. Im guessing you took lessons learned and applied them here. Looks great. How did you keep from having the transfer outline on the armor after you liquid mask over it like was happening on the helmet?

    Here's what I do:

    When tracing the stencil onto the armor, trace on the outside of the line. Then, when you use the liquid mask, try and get it as inside the line as you can. After you airbrush, if you so happen to see a little bit of graphite transfer on your armor, it erases off real easy.

    It'd be a sin to wear this armor. It should be in the Smithsonian.

    Really good work bro. I'm getting ready to paint mine and I'd have to say that this tutorial is going to be very helpful. I've already learned quite a bit just by glancing over it, thanks!

    Really really looking forward to the next update of this, you've helped me, and I'm sure, many others get their paintjobs looking topnotch. Loved the little pointers, e.g. pencil line around the decal. Mine's painted straight on with stencils but I took a trip down the workshed and added a few bits after seeing this!
