I originally designed my armour with the help of a friend, of whom many of you already know... Darth Valcar.
He made the armour for me out of 3mm Sintra.
After several months of trying to figure out my colour scheme i finally made the choice of burgandy, navy blue and black. In the meantime i purchased one of Sgt Fang's helmet's, which Valcar prep'd for me.
Approx. 6 weeks ago i showed Valcar my colour scheme, and he offered to paint it for me, but i decided, more out of personal pride than anything to do the work myself, and started doing the paintwork on my day's off work.
However, approx one month ago i contracted pnemonia, got rushed to hospital etc. Against all logic and through sheer boredom during my recovery, and whilst suffering dizzy spells and lack of concentration i very unwisely decided to continue working on my paintwork.
You guessed it i totally messed it up, then to make matters worse, i tried to undo the mistakes i'd made only to make it worse than before. Defeated i finally called Valcar over to show him what i'd done!
The looks on his face said it all!!!!
Thankfully Valcar proved what a master craftsman he is and rubbed down my armour and began re-painting it to my original design, with a few minor improvements i hadn't even thought of :thumbup
Sadly my camera broke... i dropped it, so i have no progress pics to post, only those of the completed outfit.
Valcar only finished the outfit today, much to our joint relief as we're attending Collectormaina 11 in the UK this weekend.
Pics will follow later today.
