    Thanks again Vult! Appreciate the kind words!

    Got some more progress to report. I finally finished up the boot armor and got them to the point where I feel happy enough with them to call them good. I figure I've spent at least around 10-12 hours on them when it was all said and done. There were a lot of warping shapes and off-mirror issues that had to be dealt with not to mention flat spots that had to be smoothed out. Take a look at the pics and let me know what you all think!





    And of course the obligatory family photo...haven't done one of these in quite a while lol


    That's it for now. Gonna take a break for a bit and start up next on the dreaded helmet O.o

    Looks great. The boot armor looks nice. The only problem I can see is that all those parts aren't boxed up and headed to my house.

    That's gonna be hard to wear, but I think I can make it work.

    Good to see you back in the shop. I am glad things are getting better for you. Keep up the good work on this.

    Not too much more to report. Making some headway on the dome and skirt with the foam.
    Had to make some circular templates for the skirt base as well as some 'step up' templates for each section as I go closer to the top



    Next I cut these up on the band saw to get a closer profile to work with....a bit tedious and time consuming, but it'll save me a ton of time down the road


    And working my way up to the dome

    Rinse and repeat for the other side...only mirrored of course

    A quick top view to check my progress...this was actually the SECOND time I had to do this grrrr due to the fact that I didn't account for the proper angles going up and had used the same circular template as I did for the base of the skirt for the rest of the pieces....had to start over from the ground up but got it right as I figured out what I did wrong. Lesson learned


    Then I moved on to the front brow on the right side


    Rinse and repeat mirror-like


    That's it for now, stay tuned folks...LOTS more left to do on this

    Gearing up for a local con, so I decided to get a display setup ready for the 501st table. This was a LOT more work than I originally anticipated (it doesn't help that I did it mostly all in 2 days either), but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...plus I'll have this for future cons and events so it was worth the trouble.. A nice break from the helmet sculpt too
    Here's some pics













    That's it for now kiddies!

    Very nice. Great colors and weathering. I don't need a GM. I don't need a GM. I don't need a GM. If I say it enough times maybe I will start believing it.
