looks like its going to be awesome!
OKeej... The painting part is done, and this morning it was time for me to see the results... and there was good and bad news...
The good news (or the best news) was that the main result was good...
The bad news was that I had used diffrent masking tapes... on a little bigger and oen a little bit smaler... the big one (yellow) had great results... but the small one (blue one) wasn't as good...
The worst parts was the boots and the front and the back and the right leg... haha...
The best parts was the helmet and the arms.. they came out perfect ^^
So heres some pictures of my work...
Later I will try to remove the paint that's on the wrong place... and later I will weather it

We use a product at my work called CENTARI Mid Temp Reducer for getting Nazdar printing ink and laquer paint overspray off of our signs even after a weekend of drying time.
It doesn't harm our acrylic surfaces but I'll test it on some ABS tomorrow and let you know. We get it in gallon cans but maybe you can order some in a lesser amount.
Your armor looks pretty cool, though other than the few little goofs.
That looks great Oscar!
Ths stuff I was talking about will take the paint off but also dulls the plastic. You'd have to clearcoat the suit if you used it but it would work.
Arms are done... weathered and finiched!
(as allways everything looks a loot better in real life... maybe the armor looks a little bit yellow in the pictures but that's just becouse of the light... and you can't realy see all dmg but it is there... haha... When I took the pictures of the legs and boots they where so heavy weathered so you could see the most of it at the pictures, but seens this are the arms I didn't take as much weathering on them... and then it's more hard to see that there is dmg on them...)
Looks very cool I always loved the TKC (but if I am not mistaken this is specifically a TCK from Felucia? in the force unleashed game which makes it even cooler)
Update... Now everything is done exept the helmet and shoulders ^^
I made some more dmg on my gun and weathered the chest and back and my binders and detornator ^^
Pictures still not showing all dmg but I hope they will wen I take my final pictures in daylight outside with my full costume... It's close now !
I got realy pleased with my E-11... it looks so much more real now
Hey this is cool! I am actually considering doing this same thing! Keep up the good work!
