    i was hoping to keep it as one piece that is easily detachable, i would like to use the undersuit for other builds but i may be forced to adapt

    this is true, i suppose being at the stage of now having the thighs done i just went for it. though the spartan could get someone else to do the scoring.

    also eiros nice profile pic. i definitely want to build a havoc trooper at some point in time

    longs times between progress as usual. my predator build seems to have taken over as my "main" build so i do bits and pieces on the spartan on the side. pepped up the second forearm and while it would fit my bare arm in fairly well it was way too small to fit the extra mass of the undersuit forearm as well. making me think the first forearm i initially thought was too big is actually i good size. it's just the width of the top part that bothers me. so i think i will cut straight down the center from front to back and glue the pieces back closer together, to make it more proportionate in my opinion.

    the width across to top from left compared to right is what bothers me

    but from the side it looks ok

    how are you doing the rust effect? I was trying to do this on some of my stuff as well, but it didn't turn out do well...
    could you share some tips?

    so i have tried a few techniques before with acrylic paints it was ok but not great. i figured what better way to imitate rust than by using actual rust. the product i used was called dulux design rust. first you paint on an iron based medium, let it dry. then sponge on the rusting agent let it sit for about 24 hours and it will rust up. splash on a few drops of water to let it run. and then clear coat it to seal the rust in

    ohhh, i didn't want to go too small with the scores so that they would be visible at a distance, but things dont always work out the way you want. i'm planning on putting a tack pad on one forearm and the greadier attachment on the other. i might just have to suck it up and make space on the arm for it

    been a long time since i've done any work on this, postponed it to work on other things. but hoping to get it finished this year. i took the suit out for a test run a while back, had issues with the snaps coming loose on the thigh straps also lost a knee somewhere so going to have to rebuild that. so going to swap them over to velcro. also built a sangheili skull as a trophy for my predator cosplay, i think i'll now incorperate it some how into my spartan.

    quite a few parts in the works hardening the cod, butt plate, both fore arms, and a new shoulder.
    finally decided on the chest. it's going to be indomitable. the jorge chest from reach file i found lacking enough detail for my likes so i'm going to have to try my hand at unfolding the h5 version. but with a bit of some Frankenstein stuff. i didn't want to go with the back pack so i have separated it and intend to hack up the back and use the reach back from another file since it leaves the back very plain

    painting up the forearms, i think i will run out of time to get the wrist computer mounted and working to that is going on the backburner for a while

    after two test runs ripping off snaps on one occasion and velcro on the other, i'm now running snaps and velcro that has been glued and sewn on to the webbing

    one of the problems with having been working on this for so long is i can't remember
    what paint i used for the other designs and now seems like i have two different colour whites

    Testing out a colour scheme for the machone gun. Thought of going blue to match the armour, but I think this works well

    it looks heavier than it is, it's only a bit heavier than the nerf gun i used to carry. the whole inside of the drum is hollow and i used a combo of pep and 3d print. i was going to foam fill it, but opted for lighter. I was constantly conflicted between strength vs weight. so we will see how it goes.

    thanks, i took ages to decide on a color and then messed around with different undercoats

    That is some realistic-looking rust. Unconventional marking looks quite good actually.

    yes well the secret to the rust looking so realistic, is that it's real rust. i couldn't think of anything that looked more like rust than actual rust, so i rusted the armor.
    thanks i do like to get out side the box with my markings
