    Took a lot longer than I expected but taking pics with a timer while trying to keep your armor held up with blue tape is not exactly..easy..

    Just wanted to see how it all looked so far.



    Got a lot left to do...

    Did something else today too. I've had this Cruzer cold cast backplate sitting around so I figured why not do something about it. I'm not entirely sure I'll really be able to use this, but I'd have to heat and widen up the lower sides that stick inward. I think that's all I'd need to do to make it work out, but the backplate will more than likely be required for 501st approval, regardless if it's visible or not

    Just hit it with some 400 grit sandpaper to eliminate the gray primer coat



    One good once-over with the aluminum polish..



    Nice and shiny. Still need to do some edge smoothing but it's alright to polish it up anyways

    I noticed some of my images were no longer appearing so I'm re-hosting them so they won't do that again...namely of my cold-cast Jetpack













    How it looks now...half-weathered lol Gotta do the other half..

    Looking to get back into this. Motivation kind of fell after issues with soft parts. I began to finish weathering up my jetpack as I had left it incomplete prior to my move to DC. I have a local tailor who can re-work my leather flak vests, so that should be something to do soon. I've also decided that I need to re-dye the flak vest color to be a more Navy blue color, so I have that dye material on hand...just gotta get around to doing it.

    Things have been slow prop wise since the move with the exception of a few things. Namely, my work space has been cut drastically. I did have access to a work shed on my landlord's property, but he promptly turned it into storage for one of his (many) vacation homes he sold. Looking to move out and into an actual house or town house w/ garage with the girlfriend.

    It helps that there's a relatively active mando mercs group up here. Seems a lot of people are starting their own mando builds, as well as my SO. Hopefully can get more progress on this, especially once winter's over..
