    Hello everyone. This is a work in progress. I'm going for a sort of "militia" style with this build. The only foam bits I really plan on are shoulders, knees, helmet, and jump kit. The helmet is far from done too. All I really have left to do is fill, sand, seal, and paint. (I'm painting the details separately so they just go on without having to tape them off.) But how does it look so far? Also, this has officially become a build log, for those who are interested in following. Just need to make some pads (shoulder, gauntlet, knees, and vest.) Just letting you know.

    nice job! needs a little sanding, but it looks very nice! Are you doing foam detailing? It's really hard to paint small details, you'd be better off just gluing some foam details.

    anyhow, excellent work!

    Painted. I'm going for a 100% custom paint scheme. Black and gold. (I'm from Missouri. Go tigers.) Now all that's left is to clear coat.

    Anyone know what would make a good visor? I'm thinking about using an old face shield I have lying around with blue chrome clingwrap.

    That could work......try a small sample first to see if it A) Sticks....B) Doesn't come off while handling it and C) isn't easily scratched. Something like cling wrap really can'y be glues in place. It isn't designed for that like some window tints.

    I'm with Dirtdives here, always do a small sample first. With a cling wrap over acrylic I'm guessing I'd expect changes in temperature to cause bubbling between the layers since cling wrap is generally pretty porous so even if you removed all the air between the two when applying it that could change over time.

    Take a look into RC car paint, there's loads of transparent and semi-transparent options out there. I used Tamiya Colour orange for my visor and green for my fuel rod cannon and both go on extremely smooth as long as you follow the instructions. They're also made for use on plastics and bond very well to most materials you'd be using for a visor anyway.

    I actually didn't think of that. I'll go out this weekend and look for rc car paint. Thanks!

    Decided to try something. Put in a visor that I painted with VERY thin coats of acrylic paint. Just to see what would happen. I CAN see through it, but it's a bit foggy. Still gonna try the RC car paint. Where can I buy that though?
