    Today I spent more time airbrushing:


    Lots more time:


    Then all the parts got a blackwash to bring out the details and add weathing:


    Meanwhile, work began on the undersuit:


    In addition to the leather vest, I repurposed a pair of short-sleeved grey Dickies coveralls and added a leather seat. Then it was just a matter of arranging the parts:


    At quitting time today, the whole rig looked like so:


    The riblets are riveted onto the vest. The arm and leg rings are riveted to the coveralls. I'll be doing a lot more riviting tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have finished pictures to show off after that.

    Stay tuned...

    Looks really, really amazing with the paint. I wonder when you cut out the vacuformed parts are all the leftover scraps just trash or have you come up with something useful to do with them?

    The rivets are not hidden, they're just on the inside:


    We tried counting and came up with something like 176 rivets that went into the build. My hands are sore. I also pinched a nipple with the pop rivet gun at one point. Fortunately, I've got just the thing to make it better:

    I use up most of the leftovers. Sometimes the scraps are so completely in the way that they **** me off. Other times I have to scour the workshop just to find a couple of small pieces. They're great for backing up parts or strapping things together.

    In other news, THIS PROJECT IS FINISHED!

    Here's a shot of it together:


    And another:


    I'm too lazy to write up the last steps of the build again. For more pics (and a complete rundown of the build) check out my blog: http://protagonist4hire.blogspot.com...g-costume.html

    Awesome turnout! I love the details in the part over your shoulder-blades. If you ever get a few extra minutes, would you post some information about the airbrush you are using? An airbrush kit seems more and more like a good idea to me.

    Top notch sir, a real inspiration!

    Yeah. This outfit is getting around too. Not quite as much as my RvB Spartan lineup, but it's still pretty cool.

    I submitted some pics to the Halloween contest on the RPF, but I also figured I should go ahead and share them here:





    I still need to do a bit of fine-tuning, but I'm pretty happy with this build.

    On the subject of fine-tuning, I've made some improvements to the lighting for the health tube:


    What you're looking at is a series of superbright blue LEDs mounted into a piece of frosted acrylic rod which acts as a diffuser. A series of stripes drawn onto the visible side of the rod finishes the look:


    I'm thinking I'll go back and re-do this again, actually scoring the lines into the rod so it will do an even better job of looking segmented.

    I also went ahead and picked up one of the collector's edition plasma cutters from Epic Weapons. I'm not impressed. It looks the part, but it needs to be about 20% bigger. I'll probably start a build of my own in the next month or two.

    Stay tuned...

    THis is one of the most amazing suits I've ever seen. I'm not just saying that either. I really love it. Great job Thor!

    The finished (well at least for now) product looks fantastic. You've done some grade-A work as always. Thanks for sharing.
