Minor update! Holidays are coming and painting is on hold until it warms up.

I've decided to have the Edrio belt commissioned and crafted by Mike at http://deltaleatherworks.com/. He's done some stellar work and I personally have his ESB Boba Fett holster and ammo belt. The Edrio and Benthic belts are near the same, save a few pouches and the sporin. I may use the bison hide for the sporin. It's clearly a different leather from the veg tanned hide belt. That should be in hand by January.

I've made a few 1 inch strips from the bison hide for the chest box and tried to match the buckle. I picked this up when I ordered my backpack strapping, so this will do until I find a suitable replacement.



At closer inspection, the cast helmet I have has a longer breather that the screen used mask. I printed the tube connector instead of fabricating one and will attach the vinyl host as it tapers. Just going to use a pressure fit so if the hoses snag or someone tugs on it, it'll just pop out and not pull my head down. Then I can begin gasping for air and die on the floor. That should be fun to do.



Excited to have finished printing all 10 end caps for Benthic's backpack. Got them lightly sanded and primed today along with the tube connectors.



Last update is the neck balaclava. Here are the shots I'll be using as reference.



I picked up some suede from a retail leather shop here, Tandy Leather Factory, in what I guess is the correct shade with some weathering too.



My wife gave me a hand shaping the neck balaclava thing. We wrapped my head in Saran Wrap then wrapped it in masking tape. After the appropriate shape was settled on, using the reference photos, my wife sketched out the visible sewn sections and measured the distances to even it out. Since I don't have any references under the skull cap, she traced it out in a way that makes sense to stitch together.



The red line is where the helmet sits and each section is labeled for cutting. Once I get some time I'll chop up the head and lay out the pattern on the suede, cut it out and stitch it up. Should be a good update coming next time. So much more to go.

Not a lot of WIP news, but I got a solid start on the helmet.

I've also got a start on the chest box. Put down a dark gray and weathered using a technical paint "streaking grime" to achieve the gunky brown. I've only noticed now, in the end, how inaccurate my flight box is, haha. /Sad Tognath. Ah well, it'll do and I'll just have to upgrade later for accuracy. Seeing as Edrio is just a stepping stone to Benthic, I'll get an easy out if I don't want to replace it. Benthic is the goal.




I've received word that Edrio's belt commission from Delta Leatherworks is compete! Here's a snap from his IG. Should be getting this soon! I figure since Benthics belt is the same minus a few pouches, might as well get a good looking belt to swap between the two. I'll post photos once it arrives.
