    G'day every one, I'd forgotten I'd started a thread on here, here's a few pics of my slow progress. The bucket is an nme props standard merc, working on v2 that'll be with a twoeleven fett dentless helmet #3.
    When I update more pics I'll add more

    Thanks mate, it's been abit slow the last few months. The weathering isn't hard to do, here's link to the mercs page, I did abit of a tutorial there. ( hope that's not breaking a rule)

    Bit of work on chest plate and chest display. Got some red acrylic between chest display and plate as well. Needs cleaning up, filing edges
    Any suggestions on securing the acrylic and chest lights to the plate?

    I used hot glue on mine to hold it in place and gaff tape over top (tape to seal the light in)

    Received some darts from Machinecraft replicas the other day, awesome work....sharp too.
    Installed and loosely fitted the whipcord housing and thing at back. Both bits need another paintjob and some work. Need to add dental files to the housing. Work on silver chunk some it can accept a hose, maybe have cables going through it
    Not sure on painting if black or same as the shell. I thought if I painted it black it'll looked like it was pieced together from various sets
