    Minor update, here is some of the weathering, if you look closely at the back you can see a copper I used.
    I sprayed paint onto a sponge, wiped it off, then rubbed.
    Tell me what you think.

    Quick question, not sure if this is the right Thread, but I couldn't find another more specific. I am looking to use a MR for trooping, but I have heard some guys on here mention that I should be careful with the paint when fixing the "pinch".

    Does anyone know if the paint job on a MR will stand up to moderate trooping for events with the 501st - if I'm careful with him.

    Regards,

    I believe that thread may be able to help, he fixed his MR pinch, and it looks really good, his tutorial is exceptional, my thread is from WOF template and bieleve it or not express mail envelopes, fiberglass resin and bondo.

    Sorry A'den,

    I promise I will get more done soon, I had to put the nose into the books to study for a Dantes test (no time for school, so I am taking college tests outside school for my BSN).

    I have painted some colors onto my chest pieces, I'll post tonight, I will work on bucket when I get the visor mirrored.

    I tried to get the EL put in first, but the wifeys hot melt gun broke (don't teller her)

    EDIT:
    Added pics of armor in begining stages, this is only the chest, belly and jewel, I still have the trash can for the pauldrons collar, shins, thighs, and if I can, the upper arms.
    You can see multiple colors, there are about 6 layers of color.
    Silver, black, copper, red/blue (color change paint).
    I plan on weathering the poop out of it, and adding the matching scratches and dents that go along with the bucket.

    Any comments?

    Your armor is awesome & I love the color of paint. What are you making the armor from? We're just getting started & need to be ready by the beginning of July for the SDCC. We already have the helmets; hubby's is an actual MS1 Helmet & mine is a scratch rebuild between DP 95/96 and MS1 helmets. We need as much help as possible & any info you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    O.K. I know this is kind of an old thread, but if you go to a local sign shop, you can ask for extra scrap sintra, and they'll give it to you.
