ah man that shot with you and your son both wearing the helmets and giving the thumbs up is awesome. That's what its all about right there. Great work, your details are great.
It really is what it’s all about. I’ll be dragging my little man to a con with me whenever we get the chance. And thanks! It’s all coming together!

Okay I resolved a few things and was able to get back to the build. Thought it’d be longer but luckily it wasn’t. Here are some more progression photos. Still need my battle belt painted up a bit. Everything needs weathered but I got some weathering on the chest armor where the bullet holes are. But y’all can see where I stand. Enjoy!

Like you said, the lines are a bit softer and the edges are not that sharp. but otherwise it looks freaking cool dude. well done
Yeahhh if I can find a finer point pen, I would be able to get it tightened up a lot. The marker end was slightly smaller than a permanent marker so the edges in general were just rough to make. I did go back over it to fill it in better than that first picture but still off symmetrically, line work, and consistent edges. I swear I’m more symmetrical, better than what I did and I have some skills in drawing lol also didn’t help that I had to shake the marker every often, and it would give me a different amount of paint at the end every time. Oh well. May wipe and just get a sticker lol

Battle belt is done (for now). Just gotta do a test fit to make sure it stays secured and in place. Have a few more things to add if it doesn’t. Hoping to do a full suit up maybe tomorrow or sometime this week. Got the clips that go on the front of the undersuit. I used a **** ton of magnets. The whole upper body works like an actual plate carrier with magnets instead of Velcro. Sides come apart, cummerbunds separate and attach around the undersuit and keep the suit shut. Hope y’all have enjoyed the details so far! (y)
