    Its been awhile since I have posted on here and I am working on my armor again now that it is warm where I live and I can fiberglass and bondo. As of right now I have 5 pieces fully fiberglassed. I am working on the chest piece. It is taking awhile so once I have it all done I will post some photos of my progression.

    I have finally gotten a chance to work on my armor now that the weather is nice where I live, I dont't have much time during the year to do the fiberglassing and bondoing due to my living arrangements so I am making the best of the time I have. I have since my last post fiberglass and rondoed the pieces in the photos, a little over kill I know but I don't want my parts to brake on me, and I have started to do the bondo and shaping portion on some of the pieces and I am hoping to get as much done for you all as possible. If any of you have any suggestions I am all ears, I would like to finish this sooner rather then later

    I have finished two pieces of the armor, the hard guards. I still need to connect them to gloves, any suggestions on how to attach them to gloves? Let me know what you all think.

    I was able to finish three of my pieces today, I am surprised at how they are turning out. If any one see anything I should fix let me know. Here are one of the handguard and the left forearm

    Ynot44, nice work. Not sure if you need to change anything. The weathering is great but I would say to alternate directions of your brush strokes......not perpendicular mind you, just give the impression of scraping from different angles.

    Those piece came out very nice. Like Dirtdives said the forearm piece looks kind of sanded not worn. They just need some scrapes And scratches in other directions. The handplates don't seem to have this problem they came out great.

    Thank you for the suggestion, I went and added some alternative brush strokes on the forearm and now it does look more realistic. I was able to take a photo of it before work but I am planning on doing the same thing on the other right forearm.

    That PEP looks clean. The cleaner the pep is the easier and better the finished product will be. Good job

    Those pieces turned out looking great! Nice to see people with more time than me getting something productive done with those models. I've had no time at all lately to continue working on additional Mk VI armor parts, but hoping to eventually have high-detail files made for the entire suit. Yours are turning out nice.

    Thank you very much. I really enjoy the models that you created RobotChicken I ended up stop working on my armor September or October of last year due to some unfortunate weight gaining due to an injury. I just got back from PAX West and saw some of you throughout the convention and decided to try my armor on since I have lost a lot of weight since last year and to my surprise it fits..... I am majory behind on my build now and I am going to try and finally finish it for PAX next year.

    I'm taking my kid to Salt Lake Comic Con this week where he'll be cosplaying as Jack Cooper from Titanfall 2. We've spent probably over $1,000 on the outfit and been working round the clock for the last 4 weeks hoping to get it ready in time. (3 days to go, and still a lot of work to be done.) I'm hoping to get the last of the electronics on it done tomorrow. I've got supplies collected up to make a screen-accurate Starfleet uniform for myself but haven't had time to start on it yet so for a third time my kid is going to be better dressed than me.

    That is awesome that you are doing that with your son and that he is so interested in cosplaying. That is something that I hope happens once I have kids. Are you going to be posting any photos of him once it's completed, I would love to see the final result? Is there a particular Starfleet character that you would be going as or would you just be a Starfeelt officer or crew member from the Enterprise?

    I'm excited to see a new Grif cosplayer! Your armor is looking really nice! I'm retiring my Grif suit this year as I'm making a new spartan, so it's nice to see someone go through the same process I did for the character. May your days be lazy and your pantry filled with oreos.

    We've recorded video and photos of the build for YouTube. Here is a teaser:

    For my Starfleet uniforms (two of them, TOS and TWOK) it will be generic Engineering captain rank. Build threads are started at the 1701st and there will be vlogs on my YouTube channel.

    My kid loves Red vs. Blue and was thrilled to see Master Chief (a few of them) and Caboose at the con.
