looks like your legs are more forgiving then mine was. I have to go back and really tailor them up or make new ones. But the DAP flex seal will really help smooth those gaps out and give you such a better looking armor once you dip it. Love the progress. Troopers FTW!!
One begun to create the first weapon. I'm building a m6c socom magnum using andrew DFT templates as a test. I will probably make some changes as I work on it. I've also plastidipped all my armor pieces with at least 3 coats, and they're ready for paint. Any tips on painting?
I'm going to start painting helmet. I tried out using the liquid plastidip and brushed it on. I got a much thicker coat that filled the gaps, and it looks smooth. My color scheme is going to be dark blue and black,and maybe red detail.
So I know it's been a really long time since I've updated this thread, but I have two things to say. The first is that I have completed the other shin and have started work on the second thigh, as well as pot a few more coats of plastidip on all the pieces. Also, I gave decide to start selling 3D printed halo props for pretty reasonable prices on etsy. I will be adding Moore stuff to etsy as I test how well things pouring on my printer, and I take specific requests. I will attach a link to my etsy, and some pics of the new thigh.

Alright Guys, I know its bee quite a while since I've updated this, but I have since painted and taken my armor to comicon. Here is a pic(before I added straps to hold the thigh plates up, ad before I finished the crotch plate), and some pics of me at the con with everything but the forearms.
Alright, I figure its time I finally finished the costume, and i had the parts unfinished for a while, but halloween really pushed me to get it done. So here are images of the finished product. If any of you know any cons coming up in PA near York anytime soon, let me know. I'm kinda bummed because I was on vacation for baltimore comic-con.
Looks good! Can never go wrong with a rucksack(backpack) you can always stick a hydration pack in there so while you at the con you stay hydrated. I say give it a bit of weathering, dirt, hit some high spots with silver.
Bit of an update, in order to work for deployment status, I'm now making the boot armor and side panels for the torso! Here are some pics as of last night. I'll update this post with pictures as I get further in the process.
