    Just got my armor in the mail today and started painting the shoulder plates. Sorry about the bad pictures, they wouldn't turn out without te flash on.

    Thanks!

    The symbols were done using rust-oleum "Canyon Black" satin finish sparypaint. The white triangle was hand painted using testors glossy white only because I didn't have any white spraypaint. I printed out both designs and cut out stencils using an x-acto blade.

    Valcar, TantiveIV, MMF#1---> Thanks!!! I'm glad you like them.
    Here's my knee armor. Pretty basic sintra w/ a two-tone black and red design and weathering. Might get something a little more fancy later but it works for now. These, like the rest of my armor, will eventually have a brown/green grime wash.

    I'm installing the visor into my helmet tonight. Talk about a pain in the butt process! It's coming along though.

    Dam right this is coming along, I like the way you have done the red very thick, it's got a great layering look to it..... very good indeed Kyram...

    Looking very good. Although I'd go with a black-clad lower plate as well...

    Thanks Setra, Crixler, Tracyn!
    Either of these look better? I had considered putting black on the gut plate but wasn't sure if it would look better than just the silver. Everyone please let me know what you think...

    Have you thought of R'n'B'ing the armor? I think it would make it look pretty nice, unless it would be too difficult to mask it all off.

    Well that settles that then. LOL. And I agree, it rounds the design out pretty well.

    Uther: Sorry, what is R&Bing? Still kind of a n00b here

    R&B = Rub 'n' Buff. It's a technique that Jango's use to make their armor shiny. =P I don't know too much about it, but I'm sure you could search the forums for a tutorial, or PM a member who has done it, which is pretty much any Jango.

    Again, though, I don't know too much about the technique itself, as I image that you would have to mask off the black, as I think the RnB wax doesn't take paint too well; and that your symbol might not be the easiest to mask off while RnBing it.

    I think it might be worth looking into if you want the shine of Jango's silver, but It's up to you, and I think it would look great either way.

    Oh ok, thanks. I'll look into it. Masking off the black shouldn't be too hard.
