    Were you using barge cement for your build?
    Awesome work buddy

    No sir. Not available in store locally. I would have to order it online. I am currently using LePage contact cement.
    I just learned about an online cosplay supplier who has it available and will buy if from them when the times comes.

    Same here. No barge cement available.
    I did watch loads n loads of YouTube videos before beginning and settled on Angelegends process of using Loctite the reinforcing with hot glue

    Productive weekend. I was able to finish the thigh plates for my ODST armour and got to work on my weapon a little bit as well! I added some dots for detail on the grips and stock. Then sealed with about 4 coats of 50/50 mix of Modpodge and water. Then two coats of primer then ran out of paint. 20170528_154848.jpg 20170611_183835.jpg

    Thanks! I have been really lazy lately so I haven't done any work on it. Same goes for my ODST armour. Hopefully I can get motivated again and finish this up.
    Bad Paigan! Bad Paigan!

    Started painting my SMG today. I don't have any black spray paint so I'm using some black acrylics and painting by hand. Since I am doing by hand, I can only paint one side at a time.

    At this point I have one coat all around. Let dry and now have the second coat on one side. I will end up having 3 coats in total.

    I'm uploading an image of my magnum here cuz I'm too lazy to dig up the thread that I have for this build. I reworking the paint on this. I really didn't like the paint I used for weathering. It was a silver paint with glittery stuff in it. So I ended up going over it with a thin layer of black to dull out the glitter. Next step to use some Grey's that I bought and weather and highlight the edges.
