    I bought some armor a while back and upgraded and repainted it.

    The OD armor parts? I got a wild hair to pull a "Threepio's silver leg" by implying a couple of parts had been recently replaced.

    Some of the weathering isn't showing up in pics, which means I should add more...

    Yeah, the holster is an afterthought. It's just vinyl...didn't want to spend too much on that detail. Weathering will come. :)

    I don't know the original manufacturer of the armor, I'm afraid.

    Very nice work. Be sure to post up some more pictures when/if you add more weathering.

    Have you considered simulating some xenomorph acid burns on the armor?

    Now stick it all on and go roll in a muddy puddle, that's an order trooper.

    (opted not to go screen accurate there. I just don't like that green quilted holster in the movie.)

    WOAH...

    That is awesome. I do agree that it needs to be weathered though.
    Still, I'd love to have it the way it is too. :)

    Very nice.

    Cheers,
