    Yeah, I bought it a while ago because I thought that it already looked like a vibroblade Some modifications are under way to make it even more so.

    Thanks guys.

    Progress has been extremely slow recently, so sorry for any dissapointment, but no big updates.

    Things will start picking up again soon.

    Progress has been made, but it is only within the two main points of my suit so far - the helmet and blaster.

    I like to get everything absolutely perfect before moving on; it may be a good habit, but it is excruciatingly time consuming and it can get annoying.

    Another factor is my budget, which is not very flexible.

    Anyway, here are the absolutely finished pieces. I finished the rangefiner and stalk, made a new stabilizer trim under the visor, added some support plates to the inside of the helmet (for both protection and looks) finished weathering the blaster and created a new custom scope.

    Actually, I take it back - I still have a few plates to add to the top of the helmet interior. It's still bare up there.

    I'm sending the blaster out this week to get a custom holster rig made for it...once that is finished, then things will really start picking up again.

    Also, I've finished cutting out the armor pieces and I've begun applying paint.

    I've decided against actually implementing the cybernetic arm because I don't think I have the skills to pull it off, HOWEVER before I decided this I came up with a number of theories for making it work..if you'd like to hear about them, let me know...

    It is quite angular now that I look at it. I think the rounder forms tend to look too...I don't know how to explain it. Cartoony, maybe? I just think the sharper angles make everything look better. I'm pretty happy with the shape, I just hope they aren't too small.

    Has anyone any idea what Ashton Synn's status is? I talked to him a week ago and was getting replies within the hour, but ever since then I have not been able to get him to respond.

    I'm thinking about starting a new thread for this, now that things are finally picking up. This one is getting messy with all my absenses and lack of progress.
