    My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Hey guys,

    I love TCW, and I particularly enjoyed the episode: Trespass!! The episode was a great one but what made it more enjoyable was this:




    I've been wanting to post pics of this sooner but I wasn't happy enough with how it was looking until now. I'd say I've been working on this for about 2-3 weeks? It's not finished yet but may I present to you, my Snow Clone lid!





    This is the second shot of paint it's seen, the first was to highlight spots that needed filling. This second coat is so I can see the surface to check the dome.

    It's a two part helmet right now consisting of a face plate and the dome. The face slides into the dome and will be fixed above the visor inside the brow. I've rough cut the holes that will eventually make up the breath filters(I think that's what they are), the three strips at the mouth and will tidy those up more tomorrow.

    I'm just waiting on some new supplies and tool part so arrive in the morning before I crack on.

    I'm not sure what else to say right now so I'll leave you guys to have a look and let me know what you think.

    Thanks!

    ***UPDATE***

    The price again is $190 plus shipping per kit, you'll get the face plate, dome, 2xaerators and the three small parts for the mouth vent. The general word was that people would be happy to suply their own cowl material so that's not included nor is visor material. Though I do have vinyl here so if some people want a cowl it can be done until my vinyl runs out. PM me for info.

    Please post here if you're interested or want to order yours now so we can build a new list of interested folks. smile.gif

    Well, I've noticed over on AA that the armor is already in the works? So I'll just be doing a helmet.

    Thanks guys!

    It's looking very clean and nicely proportioned, well done to my eye, it looks as of the neck/cowl area could come down a little lower but, I see you did mention it's in two parts so it's probably just how it's sitting in the picture. Either way it looks great, get a cowl mocked up, tape a visor in it, and post some more pics!

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    You mean on the dome? That was lower originally but it needed trimming as it was too low and kept hitting my neck/shoulders. I trimmed an inch off it and it still rubs my neck/shoulders but that's without some padding to lift it a little.

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    I took these but they aren't the best quality. They show the drop of the skirt(that's what I call it anyway, what's the general term??) and how close it is - minus padding - to my shoulders.

    Sorry about the vid quality, it was taken on my phone. It gives a slightly better vies than the pics though.

    Very cool, can't wait to see it complete. Are you going to make it Rex's helmet, or just a standard-issue clone version?

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Probably a Rex!! Although I have a pic here somewhere of another Snow Clone with red paint markings. I think it's from an online comic?

    But I'll prbably stick with Rex.

    Also, regarding the skirt on the dome. I've widened the flare on it this morning. It wasn't quite right so it flares out by 10mm more on either side and an extra 6mm on the back.

    Faceplate for the hard surface, and cowl for the flowing fabric or rubber

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Thanks bro, though I was referring to the lower half of the dome. I call it a skirt but what's that generally called?

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Absolutely Gav! I need to find something suitable for it. I'm gonna hunt through some old old sheets or pillow cases in the week to do some mock-ups and try and get a working pattern for the COWL. LOL! My wife will love me for that!

    As for new pics, I did some work on the dome COWL today to make the flare more prominent. Here are the pics of the new version. Looks much better now. Still some tweaks here but it's getting there.

    Thanks! Alas, I'm only working on the lid. Though I've seen Snow Clone armor being worked on over at Animated Army.
