    So far it's admirable work, PreacherMan! You can be proud of yourself, and we can be anxious to see more!

    Almost done! Just gotta pair it with the pressure suit and add some pouches to carry my stuff, and a holster of some sort.

    I need a rifle, too, and a paint job.

    You have done a PHENOMINAL JOB on this project!
    Although, I have to say that in my opinion, it really does not need to be painted.
    IT LOOKS GREAT IN BLACK!!!

    Fantastically amazing, PreacherMan! And I agree with Rhaven Black: no painting needed!

    Started making a shotgun! Only two hours of work into it so far.

    I'm gonna have full pictures of the whole suit taken tomorrow.

    Fantastic job, as usual! Do you intend to show some more on how you build the gun? It's not made of paper, is it?

    Neither gun is made of paper- I used an airsoft USP nonblowback pistol and a spring Benelli M3, painted them both, and built around them with foam and acrylic plastic until they were the desired shape. :)
    Both were done in only a few hours, so I didn't really take any progress shots during.

    ‚Äč(Yeah, there's no neck seal in the last photos, I took it off due to sweltering heat)

    Criticism welcome. Anything welcome. It's hard to get an honest response these days.

    Really? Criticism welcome....humm:)
    ok
    1...it is very black....i don't have halo so isn't there a possibility to get some color in it?
    2....the shoulderpads are not homemade..i would place a homemade over them..they are to round.
    3. hum...the hips..are not protected..didn't you forget some plating?

    BUT REMIND....this looks awsome...one day i hope i can create something like this..
    i tried once ...but the armour fell apart when you moved..

    ah, one last thing...i think the most important off all!!!!

    4...never stand next to boba fett with a pink cupcake you will loose!!!

    Honest opinion

    sign1 sign1 sign1

    Aside the above (very well pointed by Dnalor, BTW), since I'm no cosplay usual player, nor have I ever built an armor, my honest opinion is that it looks great! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :cool: :cool:
    You've just given me the armor-building itch! Too bad I can't do it right now, but I'll get there...

    Thanks! Yeah, the shoulder pads came off the day after the shoot- that's why there aren't any in the Segway photos. For color, I don't really know what to do- I was thinking a single red stripe somewhere, but a thick one. I dunno, never really been a fan of most colored armor.

    In the last photo showing my unprotected hip, a plate had fallen off- it's since been put back on. It's in the other photos for comparison.

    Anyways, just for fun, here's a quick 7 hour project for building another gun, just to see if I could. Photos taken 2, 5 and 7 hours upon working, just for comparison.

    2 hours

    Got a little more work to do, and have to wire up the glowing blue ammo counter. Shouldn't be too hard.

    Can't argue with your armor building skills they are great/fantastic. By the way, how where you able to construct a paper sedgeway, that looks great too. Waiting to see what your next project will be.

    Thanks! Next project isn't actually paper, it's more sewing- it's Old Snake from MGS4. It's over half done right now.

    The Segway is a real Segway... :)
