Looks Great Jordan!!
The buckles and leather work look fantastic. Now you just need to weather the holster a little to match the harnes, then I'd call the rig complete.
awesome work, looking forward to updates!
lovin the detail mate! cant wait to see more
Small update... more coming soon.
Got my jump/corcoran/paratrooper boots. Will be adding the cuffs to the tops shortly. Then they'll get a color/weathering change.
I also scored a sweet set of dogtags from fellow RPF member, SirJediKnightTim, thanks again bro! They're beautiful.
Hey you got your printed parts already in right? I'd love to see them in person, and share and compare our measurements, estimates, and such. Let me know.
This looks to be coming together very well. Looking forward to seeing the photos.
Boots are just about done. Just need to add laces and dirty up a bit more. These are ATF Paratrooper boots with vintage 1940's leather cuffs from another pair of boots added to the top... so now they're the correct height, etc. Not screen accurate so to speak, but who gives a crap, eh? ha!
My buddy Robo modeled the helmet. Print arrived. Looks great. My buddy Reevz will do the cleanup, molding and casting for me. So stoked!
Nice looking helmet and minus the hooks on the tops of the boots.... these are the most screen accurate to date.
Thanks! Yeah... not really going for 100% accuracy, I think shooting for that would be a silly unrealistic goal, besides this costume will still blow the minds of non-costuming prop people on Halloween, ha!
Beautiful 3d models! The suit looks like it's really coming along well.
Those boots look great Jordan! If you wanted to swap out some of the top eyelets for hooks, you would be pretty dead on for accuracy
Hey, This material is Shapeways White Strong and Flexible (WSF) it's like a tough nylon material that contains some flex, but won't break.
These pieces are already painted and weathered, will post more once I get the pieces together.
Dude... this is flipping fantastic.
Updates coming soon. I received the costume base, which is getting a complete overhaul, as expected.
I also received my gloves from Ravenswood leather, I want to do a couple tweaks to them, then dye.
Airsoft Shield also arrived, it's beautiful. I'm going to etch the lines in, etc... then paint...
Here arises my question for you guys...
What paints should I use? I want a metallic base, then some sort of a semi-opaque metallic red and blue...
Here are some I'm considering...
Silver]Tamiya Aircraft Spray AS-12 BareMetalSlvr. TAM86512 4950344994847 | eBay
Red]Tamiya Spray Lacquer TS-18 Metallic R TAM85018 4950344993604 | eBay
Blue]Tamiya Spray Lacquer TS-19 Metallic B TAM85019 | eBay
Good choices staying with the same company to avoid the paint reacting.
I used the Dupli-color and while happy with the results recommend avoiding them.
If clear coating, do suggest testing your metalized paints and clear coat on something other than your shield.
Some metalized paints dull when clear coat is applied. The Dupli-color red and blue were fine but the Chrome and Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel was a bad combination.
Really looking forward to seeing a finished airsoft shield.
So do you think those paints would work? And if so, how many should I buy of each? I have no plans on clear coating, in the past I've had nothing but issues clear coating things, it finger prints, scuffs, dents, etc... Besides his shield isn't shiny in the movie... it's dull, brushed aluminum looking, and I'll be giving this a battle worn look.
So do you think those paints are a good choice? Designed for scale models.
Very Impressed! Fantastic work!
