    Still working on the helmet, started to do the back, adding alot of masking fluid, and layers of paint, so will hopefully look good in the end.

    I will have to get on with my guns soon....at the moment I cant find my dremmel (type thing) so will have to wait until I happen upon it!

    What are you going to use for the sniper rifle? I've seen another custom mando on here use a Nerf Longshot CS-6, and it looked really awesome once painted.

    Shame they cost so much to get to the UK. Only place to find them for UK is on eBay, and they charge 29.99 for the gun (or more) and 19.99 shipping... so all said about $100

    Ouch! You can't order it off of Hasbro's website? That link in my above post has the buy link, you can't just buy from there and have it shipped to whereever?

    Fisrt pic is of my belt...got it off ebay for a couple of quid...looks pretty good!! The others are of the back of my helmet...it aint a good job because I think my masking fluid has become a bit rubbish...but has made quite a nice effect where it looks like the paint has been eaten away by acid...or something like that.

    The other is of some leather off cuts I have...but I think it will be too thick for me to work by hand...I wanted to make some lara croft style leg holsters...but im not sure I will be able to do it with this.

    I could put it on my cape.....I do have some black fabric paint, but i dont know how good I would be at enlarging it accurately, I am very particular....and too fussy...If it went a bit wrong I would give up.
    Here's a trick that a lot of artists, particularly mural artists, use to enlarge image; they use a grid. Just lay a grid of even sized squares over the original and then lay a grid of the same proportions on where you want to draw the enlarged image on. From there it's a matter of redrawing the image using the grid as reference points to where to draw any given part of your drawing. So instead of just drawing a larger image on a blank space you're recreating your drawing one grid square at a time.

    Alternately, if you can get your hands on a projector of some kind you can project the original on to wherever you want to have the enlargement on and simply trace over the projection.

    Hi peoples! I havent been on for ages, just been a bit hectic and went off costuming for a bit. Im getting back on with it all though. I am currently working on some webbing straps to keep the chest armour where it should be, I will get some pics up when I can...but I need to really get my flack vest done so I can velcro it into place first...but that also means trying to find a good pattern base, thats harder as nothing I lookat seems suitable. Anyway I have also ordered up my paints....just humbrol hobby paints...they served me well in the past so I can also get going with the painting of the chest armour etc. But thats my kinda weak update. Hope everyone is ok with everythng thats going on!
