LOL thanks, it's around 16meg and it can catch details using a good zoom lens and yes I want to shoot your kit when it's done at some point. Just hope it helps and should help with ideas for how to weather your leather and suede bits. Keep up the good work.
I can't wait to troop with you one day, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Fantastic job my friend.
I've just spent several hours in awe of your skills. VERY nice thread, INCREDIBLE kit, THANK YOU for the privilege of watching you work! You have pretty much made me re-think my whole build. Being new here, it might not mean as much, but in my opinion, this is the finest beskar'gam on the whole site! Awesome work vod!!
This kit is inspiring, I haven't even finished my first kit yet, and this one has me rolling ideas around in my head for my own early crusader kit.
Seugtai, again this work is awesome and inspiring. I should get back to work, but I'm stuck at work.
I'm afraid I'm becoming addicted to setting things on fire.
A whole view. My original plan was to have leather strapping on the ab plate but, I'm afraid there my end up being too many straps in such a small area. What do you think? You can see what the strapping would look like on page 1.
I like the idea of taping a piece of leather across to see what it looks like. Either way it looks great and the twisted metal buckle is Fantastic! You mentioned fire and the rivet heads....did you do traditional old school gun metal blueing by heating and then quenching in oil?? If so, you have just gained a whole new level of detail mastery. Not very many people know of the old school method of blueing by heating and quenching in oil...especially since it is an old firearms gunsmithing trick...You rock, pure and simple.
You know what's really funny? Someone who puts the time and effort into this kick shebs kit, and she doesn't like her picture taken. Love, I have bad news for you, at C6, it's going to take you an hour to get from the doors to the booth.
I must say.... that buckle looks spiffy. The guy who made must be an upstanding member of society. I think we should ALL buy him a beer. Looking good! cant wait to see more.
Brilliant work and yer new name is Firebug thats what we call an arsonist in Scotland LOL
