    So my ex left the set of Reach armor that I built for him, and since he's relatively close to my size, I've decided to do a repaint, add a few extra details and make it my own.

    As to not repeat all the things posted/said in his thread here is a link to it.

    I plan on remaking the shoulders, hand plates, biceps, and forearms. The boots are unknown at this time since I need to get a pair of shoes for this kit.

    Back in October I made a set of Reach thighs, and they look pretty good, granted that's not the best angle for a picture, but its the last time it was worn.

    Other upgrades include:
    Lights! (ALL THE LIGHTS)
    New Paint
    New Weathering
    New Visor
    New Helmet (eventually)
    Tatical pouches for the belly area
    Possible Thigh Pouch

    My goal is to have the upgrades done by January 15th so I can wear it to a local con; luckily I have quite a bit of time off in the next couple weeks so I should have the majority busted out quickly. The only thing that will most likely delay this will be shipping on the tatical pads.

    Any other upgrades I should look at doing?

    Well more progress has been made, I have the chest resized, as well as the cod/belt. I've also got the helmet painted, lit, and ready to go, though I will be in the market for a different helmet since this one is borderline too small. I have scrapped one of the shoulders since I couldn't get a good curve and I'm not happy with how it looks. I did decide that I wanted to go with the belly pouches and I am pretty happy with how it looks.

    Well I have gotten quite a bit done, three tries later I have decent passable forearms and biceps. I have also started repainting every thing since it has been and is supposed to continue to be in the negative temps. Still have to weather, but I am happy with the progress.
