For one reason or another, I kept losing one of the armor spikes I was working on today. There’s a total of 8 in various sizes, but I was always losing one of the smallest ones. One time I’d forgotten it in my wet sanding tank. Another it was behind a bottle of paint. And one time, it had found near perfect camouflage..
Laying out the gauntlet to see how it’s going. Some of the spikes are in paint right now, but should be attached shortly. Once all the spikes are bonded to their armor plates, I can finally assemble this thing rather than just laying the parts on top of each other for looks.
This part of armoring is kind of fun – I have some parts that are in near-final paint, others that are being painted, some that are just about ready for paint, and others that are still in the very early stages of construction.
