I dig that helmet a lot. Looking forward to following your build. I’ll be doing a Sean Bradley kit too, so it will help a lot to see how you get through it.

Thank you, I look forward to yours as well. His instructions for the armor are pretty useful so I do y think you’ll have any problems. There are a few things I’ll do different then him, but it’ll be roughly the same.

Trim trim trim. Right now that’s the name of the game then after that it’ll be assembly then reenforcing the armor. I know I’m doing it a little out of order then mr Bradley’s instructions but I have a method to my maddness… hopefully.

Done with all the trimming work. Did some light assembly. Now it’s time to reenforce the Armor!! Did a test fit by taping some of it on and I’m honestly so dang excited. If you’d like more detailed views on certain armor parts let me know and I can post better pictures. But til then love and piece y’all!

Alright I haven’t documented a lot of the steps but here we go. I have finer-glassed most of the pieces (the ones I deemed necessary). Did some cut outs for strapping (still have some to do). Then I need to detail and weather after I clear coat tomorrow. Then final assembly when the rest of the soft parts get in.

Loving the desert ODST look! Sean's kit is absolutely fantastic and holds up really well. If you haven't thought of it already putting magnets into the shins and doing a 2 piece design makes suiting up and down a lot easier

Thank you. Ya his kit is stellar, the over all quality is great and the only problems I’ve had with it are self induced. Also thanks for the tip, always love QoL improvements for kits.

Almost there. I’m 85 precent of the way to the finish line. Just need the soft parts, detail vinyl, and should strap parts to com in. Also need to pad out some areas but it’s looking good. Today’s activities where doing general weathering and details. Using oil paints for a black brown wash layer. It also doesn’t show well in the photo but I added a Molle panel to my left leg with some pouches. Can’t wait to be done!!!

Well it’s finally down (besides the reshape to the shoulder straps, and some small non armor additions I might do) criticism is welcome but all in all I’m happy with it!

Personally I would choose a darker color gloves to make the helmet, chest plate and shoulder pads pop out more. But overall everything looks amazing

Might try weathering them down then or look into a new pair. Thank you for your input appreciate it.
