wow! I still don't understand how people like you can do all this, i'm still having a hard time making my first bucket!
Thanks man just takes patience!

This time around I didn’t make to much progress just added some lights and started priming my jetpack.

I added a light to the left and right gauntlet both are functional from switches

The right one I stole the idea straight from the ESB gauntlet on how they used the light in theirs. Rather mine is a switch I took from an old PSU from a computer and a random white light.

With left one it i s the same type red light used on that gauntlet for boba but on the opposite side.

Also started priming my jetpack will have to do a bit more sanding and want to add a few more geerblies and electronics to it.

Also possible going to make a poncho and or cape. I got enough material for both so I may keep both for whenever one or the other is needed.
The poncho currently just has a hole cut into the middle, need to decide if I wanna cut it smaller or not.

For the one I’d use as a cape I like the size it is currently just need to do a some weathering to it.

Only made some small progress this week. My flamethrower is starting to take shape I just need to make the clips for it now and then a method for attaching the hose and it should be done after some weathering.

I also added some replica dental files to the back of my keyslots. The back looked like it was missing something in my opinion before adding those. I just need to do a bit of weathering back there again so I can dull down their brightness.

Hey everyone here is a quick update on some of things I got going on for this build.
So far I finished up the left gauntlet only some minor tweaks I want to make. Like changing the Phillips head to a flat head screw for example.

Also recently finished up filling and sanding a custom sling gun I got printed so now just have to lay some silver on it and then paint.

Plus added some switches to my jetpack.

Hey everyone been awhile but here is a bit of an update on the kit!

Firstly I got a new diamond and painted it up. Changed the green so it’s a bit off from the rest of the armor too but not very noticeable.

Next I did a lot of weathering with black and colored in a switch on my left gauntlet.

Well lastly took some photos in the kit to see how I need to adjust the armor. Still working on the knees so that’s why they look so weird being held onto the suit currently.
