First update is on armor! Photos from a few stages of progress come courtesy of the ever talented Sean Gerardi aka NomadProps, an absolute standup guy he’s expertly handling my helmet, armor and electronics package. And yes, the backplate was adjusted kindly by Sean to the correct smooth CRL one before anybody points it out lol. Most of these parts were resin printed on a Phrozen SonicMega 8k then fiberglass reinforced. A bit left to go on a few pieces but I should be receiving my first mystery box of goodies soon! Next update will cover the tasset armor and some electronics!

Sunday evening video updates! Mandoputer and static whistling birds are installed in the bracers, they are magnetically secured but need a little foam padding to get the right fit. The tasset armor is a special recipe of semi rigid resin for some flexibility without sacrificing durability.

A few modestly big updates to share first news on the helmet! It was love at first sight more than a year ago when I was scouting for one and saw NomadProps take on it. There are a lot of really great Din buckets available right now and each has their own characteristics and I won't choose sides which is best but for me this one met all my preferences.

My helmet is still progressing but it's shaping up to be a real stunner. Now onto the backplate, Sean kindly re-sanded/filled in the inaccurate line detail to meet the updated CRL standard and its already primed for paint.

Now in case you were wondering when do I get my first shipment? Well spoilers, I already have! I'll be posting about it next time!
