This. Is. So. COOOOOOOL. I've always had a soft spot for the M-73, good to see it get some attention.
Thanks man, and yes, you need to get back on the forums. Progress is slower than I would of wanted, but progress is still progress.Haha every time that I come back on to the 405th after a few weeks you've made great progress! I really do need to get back on the forums though...
So after every bit of painting or sealing I have been wet Sanding the entire piece. My first wetsanding was after the Mod podge and kwik. The second was after the metal color and then the third was after this base color. My hope is only one more wetsanding per piece cause so far I'm doing a lot of wetsanding. Let ke just say though that it's heavilyworth it. I did a few more pieces and they are immensly smooth, no paint feel what so ever which vastly helps with the armor illusion.Looking great. Just curious what it is exactly your wet sanding? Is the plastidip texture or just sanding to weather it? Can't wait to see the armor ability all lit up!
Haha don't even talk to me about slow progress! I keep saying that I'm going to finish my non-halo project soon, but it's taking forever, and stopping me from starting other projects. I really need to buckle down and get it done!Thanks man, and yes, you need to get back on the forums. Progress is slower than I would of wanted, but progress is still progress.
Yeah lol, it did take a while. Once I get the magnets for the chest I will do a suit up for ya guys. Can't do a suit up if the chest piece won't stay.took ya' long enough.
Looks sick man! And show us a premature suit-up!
Yes, my plan is to do a black wash with a few other weathering colors on the armor. There is quite a bit of painting I still got to finish beforehand though.Once everything is painted are you going to give it all a black wash? It's going to really bring out the detail you have built into all of the armor.
