    no no, of course, one has standards after all!
    ive been hacking and bending away at this metal helmet with limited success.. i guess since the thing was made to deflect bullets, i should have expected it to be tough to shape.
    i'll be grinding and cutting a few pieces off and then applying some bondo before i distress it further and give it a desert waste color.


    needs more off the sides i think.

    the wife stole the mask earlier too, before i chopped it up.


    and i'm chopping up half the mask to make templates from, so i can reassemble the mask in plastic over thanksgiving holiday.

    pics will be soon,
    glad your still interested!
    i had very little time around turkey day to do my thing, but i'm in the progress of rebuilding the mask in sheet plastic, it's tricky, but superglue + zip kicker have made things bearable.

    it's taking much longer to build, but this is plastic this time around and will be backed with fiberglass afterwards.
    much stronger than cardboard and lighter than bondo.

    That looks awesome. Do you think you could PM me the Prep file for the Helm. I was going to do the Power Armor but it looks like mobility is below 0 .

    Alright! Progress! What're you going to do for the stencils and weathering on the chest?

    i'll cut some stencils and spray paint them, shouldn't be too hard.

    as for weathering, i'm going to be experimenting with a few different paints, plastidip is a good thing from what i understand, but i'll be trying a variety of acrylics, enamels, airbrush and inks to see what works best.

    nothing amazing, quite boring infact.
    i've built (but not secured) the nose
    as well as working on the eye frames.
    things would be quicker if it weren't so cold, otherwise i'd be using my bandsaw to do the cutting, and cut several hours off each nights work.

    You could go on the foam armoring topic and check out what I did for the weathering. Any questions feel free to ask. Plasti-dip is not used for weathering though, it is only used for coating the foam to seal it up of any cracks or lines that you dont want to show. I am aware that hog mog works just as good too.

    actually i've been under the impression that plastidip makes a great primer for paint to go ontop of..

    Both. You use the liquid plasti-dip as a filler/sealer/primer. Since it's the liquid, it's very viscous, allowing it to seal and fill cracks and holes, as well as prime for other paints. Just keep in mind the foam likes to absorb, so more than one coat might be needed...

    that's good to know, thanks Ron,
    i've got a few air bubbles i'm hoping will fill with the primer coat, i guess it might just do that!

    Yah, but I was under the impression that you meant you wanted to do battle damage with the plasti-dip, not spraypaint over it, lol! =P You still need to prime over the plasti-dip before you paint though. 1 coat primer, 2 coats paint and 1 coat clear, or vise-vera, 2 coats primer, 1 coat paint and 1 coat clear.
