    Very nice Tom!

    here is the boot armor so far. real tricky to get the right look. they will be vacformed. so should be able to cut to fit.

    thanks nate.

    i am in the middle of building and painting one of my helmets up because i did not like certain things on the first paint up and destroyed the helmet trying to get the paint off. i know ....what a *******. so that is slowing me down on the armor build.
    but i hope to have the new halmet done soon and get back to the armor full time.

    i pulled my first backplate and tank from the mold and it will work nicely. i have to mold up the tank greeb and the chest plate. **** rubber ain't cheap!!!

    here is the belt,cod and belt buckle make up. i plan to make the belt out of rubber. the cod and buckle will be made of abs.
    i left a flap at the top of the belt so you can glue the belt flap to the inside of the cummerbund. i will leave a flap at the top of the cod piece so the belt,cod and cummerbund are all connected so they don't shift around when you wear the costume.


    here are the shins cut in half for the vactable. they are almost done just got to do some fine tuning to the centers of the shins and fill some small spots.

    no real update, just converting all the armor over for vactable plugs. almost finished with my vactable.
    i hope to start producing armor by the end of april!!!!!!!!

    yay for me!!!!!

    i will post pics after i have all the armor plugs done.

    i need to know what you guys think about what to form them out of.
    hips
    abs

    .090
    or
    .125 on the thickness of the plastic.

    my vote is hips , but you will have to lightly sand it before you paint and you get better detail, abs you do not.

    I say go for HIPS if that gets you better details/sharper pulls! And make it as sturdy as possible without loosing the details

    Looking awesome and really tempting....

    thanks for the comments

    here is where i am now. still working on the transition from armor to armor plugs for vacforming. not to much more to go really. i have to get my vactable finished. then it will all be down hill to getting to the finished costume.

    sorry about the bad pics.

    i am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Very nice work man. I've been watching it all along. This is one of my favorite clones! I think I'm probably too big to get a set if you produce them (6'06" 270-ish) unless you did an oversized run! But, I'd certainly be interested in at least a helmet!
