Awesome paintjob and love the details you added
lol. well its a file i created that slips over some L brackets and supports them, and used some wall ancors for the bracketsOk - unrelated - but how do you have your Lego Millennium Falcon wall mounted like that?
I can definitely see where I’m going. Just no string details. Still haven’t quite figured out the right visor. But still works great.Now that is one hot shade of blue! What's the visibility like from the visor? I like the texture but my initial thoughts would be it's hard to see out of
Thank man! I actually use a combo of fiberglass resin, bondo glazing putty, and filler primer. Using the fiberglass resin cuts down in sanding significantly. I do a 120grit sand the. Apply the resin. Let the resin dry then sand with 120 again. Spray filler primer and let dry. Use the spot putty to fill and imperfections, sand those areas when dry. Then recoat with primer. Repeat if necessary but move up to 240 grit. I got my helmet done only doing the steps once maybe. I only sanded three times and it was golden. The resin also helps with rigidity.That's awesome mate! Loving the blue and silver contrast. How are u smoothing your prints, because I'm using acetone, high gloss enamel, and spray paint to combine and melt the pla on my helmet build.
Ps. AWESOME rakasha/elite shoulder!!!
i like the color you have for it so far, this armor is going to be great i will be watching this thread again awesome jobBeen awhile since I made a post. But I’ve been really busy. Baby on the way, getting a new job, and football season (lol).
But I have been busy on the side… working on my next Mk7 armor!!
Got a few things in the works. Updated printing. Better filaments. Better tuned printers. And overall I’ve learned a lot from my first armor. With ideas from SlenderDummer and theMakyr, I’ve combined some thoughts and progressions into my next set.
Here’s a taste.View attachment 327555View attachment 327556View attachment 327557View attachment 327558View attachment 327559View attachment 327554
Decided to do a little crossover with this set. Drew some things up on my iPad and designed some resin stuff. Here’s the concept colors. Note: this is just colored with my Apple Pencil, no actual painting has been done yet.

I believe that is HoundOfMeath. Velcro for the attachment wrapped around the bicep is a good idea. I was wondering if I wanted to do strapping or something else if I used that harness.Small and lengthy update. Lol. Got a lot of little things done. Got the biceps painted and Velcro-ed so that they will attach to my shoulder harness. Which I was given the idea by a fellow 405th member at planet Comic-Con. I apologize for not remembering his name. A lot has happened since then.
