Here's some from the other day. I started blocking in color on the left shoulder.

There's still alot of weathering to do yet, but should be finished soon on this piece. Still finishing the weathering on the second fist and have to do the wiring for the power up light. I got alot of mileage out of the paint that I bought. All the bone white pieces from the last few posts cost me $4, pretty good to me. Stay tuned and Thanx for watching!

Big update for today! Except for a few touch ups, I'm calling the shoulder done!! Check it out

This turned out better than I hoped. There's about 10-12 hours worth of paint into the shoulder alone. Tiresome, but worth it! Now it back to finishing the other lightning claws. Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching!

Last of the shoulder pics before I took it off the stand. This is 1 of the 1st shields that I painted (right from the game)
https://photos.app.goo.gl/DWu3oXSpQqepQLuU6 What do you guys think so far? Any and all comments welcome. Still weathering the other fist and claws at the moment.
Also started on his rt. arm (the one with all the writing etched in) I didn't do any battle damage to it for fear of ruining the letters. I think the paint job will suffice. Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching!

I'd just like to say that I'm still going through this thread and want to eventually read every single update (it's very thorough so far).

That being said, I'm freaking out man! This is excellent craftsmanship!

Based on what I've seen, I think you should be very proud of every single piece of this suit that you've made so far. Each one is like a sculpture/piece of art that you've given an admirable amount of individual attention to.

Words of caution: I hope that when you tackle the functional side of this build that you encounter zero problems, as 'suiting up' problems are the hardest and most wasteful to solve. I look forward to the finished product looking just as amazing as the individual pieces!

Be careful, and keep putting passion into your hobby!

Thanx for the compliment. Coming from someone such as yourself means a great deal! Your build is 1 of several that I've taken inspiration from. It's nice to see some of the "old timers"(as in experience not age, I probably have 20+ years on you and most everyone on the site LOL) if you will, still frequent the site. I have been figuring the strapping  as I go, and think I have it sorted out. I'm working on going back thru the thread and swapping out dead Photobucket pics with at least live links. This build has proven to be a long 1, but very enjoyable. Thanx for taking an interest in the thread. Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching!

Ah! You're almost twice my age, but I'm an 'old soul' and I'll definitely be doing what you're doing at your age, so I guess it averages out.

I guess Photobucket is back up, go figure. I'll wait to change any more pics untill something else happens again. Maybe I'll post both links at 1 time. That way if it takes a dump, the link will at least work. And Brother Colin, you rock! You need to build something again!

Progress report for today. Rt. arm I'm calling finished. As I mentioned, I didn't do any battle damage with the iron. Only paint effects. Besides, I thought about it and figured his arm is wrapped in the auto cannon strap or plasma cannon etc. You usually don't lead with your gun or knife hand. Anyhow, here it is

All the letters and icons were burned in with a soldering iron. That was a long arduous process. My hands aren't as steady as they used to be. You learn to use what they call controlled shakes LOL! The letters got a swipe with paint to kind of stain them with the umber color instead of just black. Kind of ages the look.

Here's the arm with his glove mocked up

His glove will get the same paint scheme except the palm and underside of the fingers will be black like rubber. The joints will be metallic like on the lightning claws. Speaking of which, I have just a little more weathering to do on the fist, the blades and guard are done. Final wiring and battery holder for both and these will be complete!. My hobby room is starting to stack up with finished Terminator parts! Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching!

Update for today. Started blocking in color on the other shoulder
https://photos.app.goo.gl/VBHjp6B6yBmraubC9


https://photos.app.goo.gl/uNX82tiPZoZNQRw48

The links above each pic is the same photo just in case Photobucket craps out again. This shoulder should go a little quicker, not as much detail as the left. After it's done, I think I'm gonna start on the body. That should be pretty exciting to work on. It's got lots of detail to paint and pieces to assemble after it's done. Then I can really get a good idea what he's going to look like! Stay tuned for more and Thanx for watching!

While I'm blocking in the main colors, I thought I'd give a little more info on how I rigged my shoulder pauldrons. As you can see in the last pic above, there's a wooden framework. This has to do mainly with the bearing that I made. The frame looks like this without the foam

You see some slots in the middle of the horse shoe shape. That's to slide over the arms of the plastic bearing that I spun on my lathe it looks like this

The horns are able to go 360 degrees in a circle with nothing to stop them until you put the shoulder on. The frame fits on like this

It has pretty good movement

I had to take into account how much the thickness of the foam would allow me to flex the pauldron up. It isn't much, but it moves.

Once it's glued in behind the foam it looks like its supposed to be there.

Both of these pics are just prior to gluing. I used the template from the pep file for the inner shoulder for the size and shape of the frame. I figured that's the exact size it needed to be. Otherwise, the foam wanted to spread out too far making it hard to figure the outside shell placement. Once this thing was solid, it was easier to handle
