Here are the parts, still in the packaging for you all to see

Stage 1

]Stage 2

Stage 3

Stage 4

With this first pack and the 4 stages I can divide them up as follows:

Helmet
Facemask
1 set of Tassets
Front Curiass

Instead of jumping around I intend to build in sections. To log this build I will be using my Nikon D600 with both my standard Nikon (24-70) zoom lens and a Sigma DG 105mm macro lens. This, I hope will be able to photograph in great detail for you all.

As always, I will be posting my build photos on my photobucket site before posting my build on here, and if fellow builders see a photo that they would like as a reference then please contact me and I can email you a full size original photo. All my photos are edited for light levels and file size only. Should you wish to print out, original photos are printable in full detail up to A3

My next post will include close ups of all the components stage by stage, and then grouped together in build groups as listed above.

I am not rushing this at all. Plenty of time to work and to take it easy, slowly and steadily.


Now how about a full size one of this to build:
