    Jan 19, 2011, 7:43 PM - 3 sets of "kiddie" armor started... #1

    Two rough-cut sintra sets up top; 6 year-old Sarah's on left and 11 Year-old Stephen's on the right.
    The bottom, pink and purple set was Sarah's from 2 1/2 years ago.
    It will now be baby Dominic's and repainted "Protector" green:


    Although you can't really tell with the flash, here's Sarah's sanded and beveled:


    Fett 4 Real has already jabbed me for the little heart on the little set but Sarah really, REALLY wanted it there.

    I've been dragging my feet on doing these a while so my goal is to have them all done by March or April (or the kids get too big for them). I do work a lot so time is sparse.

    Got the itty-bitty pink set with F4R's widdle heart sanded down and ready for the green tomorrow. The shoulders and knees are ready for yellow if I can just get up and get them painted before it snows.

    I painted all the baby's armor today but the green is taking forever to set so I'm waiting to remove the masking to show you everything.

    Here's the baby cod that I made today before any paint, though:

    Okay, here we go! The flash washed out the first pic but the mustard/toothpaste technique worked well enough for this set. I still need to trim the silver with the yellow and mist the green with some black but it's getting there! I also forgot the center diamond when I shot the pic:



    Also, I couldn't help goofing off a bit. Jess warned me that "If I wake him, I deal with him!":

    I put all the yellow damage on today and I think it helped out the look:

    Yeah, he might have about 3-4 months use out of it tops. The cod came out a bit small so I have to re-make that part, though.

    I made the backplate today. I may or may not put the bottom notch in it.

    LOL, reason it's brilliant is I have three kids, all boys and my youngest is 9 months so I can so relate to this.

    Just showed the wife and it even mustered a small smile which is VERY rare with anything Star Wars!

    Here's what we picked up for the flightsuit. The pants are a little big but the way he's sprouting, they'll fit in no time.
    I might turn the top backwards so the buttons are mostly hidden by the backplate. INGENIOUS!!!
