Looking awesome! nice level of detail in the armor, nice clean work on the helmet!
theres still alot left to add, but thanks man!

FANTASTIC work on the build Chiefwannabe!!!!!
cheers mate!
Looks great mate
ha, that rhymes, thanks dude!

So ive done a bit of work on the helmet, ive sealed it with PVA glue and primed it. i have also completed construction of the right bicep. next armour piece ill probably do is either the other forearm or start on the thighs.

One thing i have noticed with the helmet is that the back of the helmet doesn't cover enough of the back of my head, my hair is still visible. that shouldn't be an issue as im going to be wearing a balaclava, but it looks kind stupid.

Agreed, It looks great. Don't worry about that especially if you're going to wear the balaclava.

Is that cold chisel on your spotify playlist?
I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
And my soul was sold with my cigarettes to the black market man
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey
From the ocean to the Silver City
And it's only other vets could understand
About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
How there were no V-day heroes in 1973
How we sailed into Sydney Harbor
Saw an old friend but couldn't kiss her
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land
And she was like so many more from that time on
Their lives were all so empty, till they found their chosen one
And their legs were often open
But their minds were always closed
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains
And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, pay packet lean
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
But the car parks made me jumpy
And I never stopped the dreams
Or the growing need for speed and Novocaine
So I worked across the country end to end
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
Held a job on an oil-rig
Flying choppers when I could
But the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend
And I've traveled round the world from year to year
And each one found me aimless, one more year the more for wear
And I've been back to South East Asia
But the answer sure ain't there
But I'm drifting north, to check things out again
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong
There ain't nothing like the kisses
From a jaded Chinese princess
I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Yeah the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone

So........i finished the suit!! ive had it done for a couple of months so (im just really slack on posting here sorry!!) ive worn it to two conventions now (a small local one and Supanova Sydney 2017) and its held up really well! the only thing thats almost coming apart is the boots but it nothing extreme, however i am definitely going to be remaking the forearms cause they're lacking alot of detail and are a bit small. other than that i may also have a shot at doing some very simple lighting on the rest of the suit since ive already got lights in the helmet. i dont have many work in progress shots sorry, but its really self explanatory, if you've worked with foam then you'll know what it looks like.
i dont have any good photos as of right now

i dont have any good photos right now all ive got is a vlog that my cousin made for the small con.....its very embarrassing...ill say that. let me know if you want to see it. then ill think about showing you. (its cringe)

again im really sorry for not posting many updates on here i would usually just do a massive photo dump of the finished thing, but like i said i dont have any yet. ill post them as soon as i get them though.

In other news ive started up a new cosplay!! well ive actually finished another cosplay, red hood!! im thinking about making a thread about that as well so let me know if you want that also.

Anyway thanks for reading this if you took the time, sorry if you were looking forward to some photos! :(
