Quick update. Got a chance to do the final prime on the Hasbro Bucket.
Still waiting on the bucket I ordered.
As for the gauntlets build up I have a few different shaped plastic bottles and containers that I am going to cut up and see how they look. Nothing is safe I have a few plastic liquor bottles, some different soap and shampoo bottles, and several different drink bottles. All of which I am going to cut up and play with the shapes. From their I will glass the final up. (I will have questions once I hit this stage as I am not sure of the best way to glass em).
My wife wants me to take my time on these and make em sick so we can have them displayed when I am done with them. So I will throttle back and make sure they rock.
My wife has locked down her final color scheme and I am excited to get ready to start painting her bucket. Her armor is is going to look similar to a Clone trooper. She wants it a base of white with green markings. So I plan to do her shoulders and colar in green as well as some markings down the chest and stomach.
All of her soft gear will be black so I will also pick out some parts of her bucket in black as well. Most likely the cheaks and the ear pieces.
For the trash can plates when you cut them out I have seen people post that they "snap the armor to get a clean line"? What does this mean? Do you score the entire out line and than bend it till it snaps or do you do some thing else?
Anyone know the best way to get a blue tint on the visor?
Thanks for all of the encouragement.
