Thought I would do some last minute wet sanding on the chest before game of thrones came on. I'm really liking how smooth it came out. Image

Ok so I took a well needed vacation. After 4000 miles on the motorcycle I was ready to get back at it. Wife and kid are asleep right now so I get a chance to work again! Here is just a picture of the cod piece with a fresh coat of primer before a test shot with the gloss white. The other picture is me sizing up some cuts I need to make for the decals from TrooperBay. Thanks for all the comments, its a good motivator!I hope to join the ranks once all this madness comes together. ;)

Also I won this shield off KBProps Instagram last month and it finally arrived. Guess I'm going to need a baton now too! Image

Ok i know its been a while but I'm really waiting on my gaskets to get here before I start making the harness. In the mean time though Ive been playing around with my new 3d printer. Been a lot of fun. Will post an update on the armor soon! Image

Ok folks. A lot of sanding, priming, then more sanding has been happening. I received updated thighs via someone on the other side of town and love them. I am excited to get them together. Now I've been trying out some paint colors to try to match my Anovos helmet. I think ive finally got it dialed in. Big shout out to Caleb for stopping over and helping me work on a new set of forearms. This is going to be a hybrid build now that I'm including ABS. So anyways here are some pics of the progress.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive. I am still in a holding pattern on receiving my gaskets so I cannot properly finish sizing up what I have ready on the armor. Once they arrive I should be able to get this thing finished up in within a few weekends. At this point though my Anovos TK kit might arrive faster :? :?

Another update. So since I'm in the waiting game and sanding seems to be the only think this FOTK is capable of doing. I got another side project that I hope I can get done a lot quicker. Thank you for the encouragement and support guys. I really mean it.Image
