    I grabbed a Disney hot potato one. I am actually quite impressed with it. I wish it were heavier, but other than that it will looko great after I paint it. I am going to paint it humbrol silver, weather it with black and rust brown, and then use a super fine brush (0000) and humbrol chrome to add scratches.

    Looking forward to it!

    Well, back from Hawaii. Got my soft parts in from Carole and they look fantastic. Had to do some touch up silver on the left gauntlet before remasking it. While I was waiting and bored I did a little work on the TD....
    I also did a base coat on it, but forgot to take the pic....

    A couple more pics of the TD in work. Still gonna throw on some copper and rust weathering, matte coat it, and then some chrome scratches.....

    That looks really sweet man! I like the idea of the scratches. Just use an exacto knife? Also like the muddled wash there

    I used a hacksaw because the plastic is pretty hard and I wanted a really straight line. I figured a black wash would tone it down. Now I have to figure out how to airbrush splatter.....

    Just splatter with a paint brush

    Put a small amount of paint on the tip of your brush and then tap the brush against your fingers.

    Another update. Remasked the left gaunt and repainted it. Now, DO NOT WEATHER IT TILL IT IS TOTALLY DRY! Lol. I followed the reference photos (MOM) as best I could for the masking.
    I also painted the missile humbrol chrome and it looks great! Now I can add the black and copper!
    Now, on to my side project. The thermal detonator. I splattered it with thinned copper and humbrol matte rust. Started looking good, but too bright, so I weathered it again with humbrol matte black. Now when I add the chrome to the scratches and scrapes it will really pop!
    I hope to finish the gauntlet, TD, and missile tomorrow after work. We will see!

    Quick update on the left gauntlet. Been working long hours and have not had much time, but here she is after the first coat of darkened wine. I also figured I would show off the lights. Now I need to remask and do another coat (after my vacation to the Reno air races!). On the plus side I have ordered more parts, and will hopefully be seeing armor soon!

    Re: WIP SE suit (FettPride armor, MOW Gaunts).

    Well, I have everything I need at home or on order besides a jetpack, and the third tool. (I got a real squeegee and stir stick). Anyone know where I can find how to build that last tool? I am getting the 2 Mojo rods, but I need the rest (sonic pulse tool?). Also, if someone has an ROTJ jetpack they are ready to separate with, well that would be nice! I will be back home in a couple days and busy with the helmet, armor, and all the other goodies I have received. DeathProof, I am seriously on it for the LED wiring!

    Here is what you need for the 3rd shin tool:

    Why do you need another squeegee if you already have the real one? Or did you threw away the discarded parts? You might also scratch build another one...

    Hmm. I guess I need to look around more at exactly how to piece each tool together, because I thought I was missing stuff, but maybe not. I hate looking like a fool. I usually look hard before I ask... Haha.

    Re: WIP SE suit (FettPride armor, MOW Gaunts).

    Well, got my armor, aluminum knee darts, aluminum studs, Patterson squeegee and stirrer, US Divers buckle, and a few other odds and ends. Still waiting on the cape, wookie braids, girth belt, and ammo belt. All should be in the mail soon. Also my jetpack harness is on order.

    The armor is FettPride v 4.0 and is amazing, plus the wait was reasonably short and he has been a big help. All the Aluminum came from JodoKast and his service and work are both fantastic. Chest display is a new Fettronics and I am going to reprogram it to Rafals new sequence. The helmet is an ASOK CC GMH that he made for me and shipped out about a week before his passing. I must say he was timely, professional, and I was shocked and saddened to hear about his family's loss. RIP Bill, and thanks again.

    Lastly, I know no one cares, but I had a great time at the Air Races and was crew on a race plane. Total blast and a nice break from working on resin!

    Also, got to hold THE Rocketeer helmet from the movie!
