Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

Like an ABS Plastic Case of emotions haha. Overall really good, needed a haircut to see better but everything fit as expected. The forearms were a bit tight but nothing too bad. After getting the pictures I fixed the shoe thingy connection so they would just be that bit stronger. Overall I'm really ...

Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

All good! I just did the weathering (if you wanna see it check out the link up at the top of this thread, there are some 20 photos and you'll see them all once I take full pictures in armor), and I can't wait to do the harnessing and foam and everything else!!

Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

Paint progress! Before painting I went over each piece and ended up doing some 14-16 hours of sanding so I'm happy to begin laying down some color. So far just getting base colors and taking my time. Have yet to do the blue but it is the last paint layer before weathering! Here is some of the pieces...

Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

So it's been awhile since my last update, but I've been working on the armor still! I did my seam filling using Evercoat Glaze, its a bondo that doesn't crack when flexing so it should hold up very well in the years to come. Also did another test fit, this time with a lot less tape! I don't have the...

Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

Another week, more work: Finished trimming and was able to do a rough test fit in the armor. Some pieces came apart but was still able to get a good idea of what it felt like to be in the armor. https://i.imgur.com/HAIEIvI.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Xxvq0xZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/sXvIjxf.jpg After tha...

Re: Phase II Captain Rex (Animated) WIP

A week after my armor arrived, here is my trimming progress! https://i.imgur.com/gQNnvUP.png The kit is from Imperial Surplus, and it mostly all vacu-formed ABS. After receiving the kit I marked where to cut and began doing basic trimming. I understand it isn't final, I'm doing most of it and after ...
