    It's all finished now! I managed to complete the lower legs this morning.

    If any of you guys want to try making your own RC then you know where to get them now.

    Woot! Skip your awsome man, loving the RC build so far, Im gonna start on the Helmet next I think. Good idea on the blaster going use styrene on mine as well I think, looks like that makes a much sturdier base.

    Bang on buddy! I don't think I'd ever make a weapon from a pep file(as the 405th have dubbed them) using card and fibreglass!! Not when with a little extra work you get much better results with styrene!!

    Love this so much! I just wish I was a 6 foot man sometimes *sigh* It would be an awesome costume to wear.

    This i so NICE! i bought the templates some days ago, and they are great, almost done with the helmet now, and i think i looks good so far.

    I do have a question though, the 4 little rektangular pieces on the side of the helmet, are they turning inwards or outwards?? I have seen both things, and i can't find any official pictures of the helmet, so i can see what's right. On your blog Skip, you posted pictures from your mates helmet, and they pointed inwards, though your templates says the opposite?????

    Nice looking model.

    Question here. What kind of styrene and where's a good place to get it?
    I've been using For Sale signs for my Boba build, but am always interested in working with different materials. Thanks everyone.

    I'm in the UK so my source may not be of any use to you mate??

    It's ABS 1mm thick. Though for some areas I double or triple up for strength. Upon saying that you can buy styrene from 0.25mm up to at least 10mm thickness. Though the 1mm works fine for me.

    So sorry I havent checked in lately. Been kinda busy. Anyway, this is just simply amazing work. Are you using some 3d program to lay out the design? If not, you are blowing my mind, if so; you are still blowing my mind. LOL! Sorry, ScotchIrish American with too much whiskey in system. But still, your work is absolutely incredible!

    Hey,

    Yeah I model the whole thing in 3D, then use another software to "unfold" that model to produce 2D templates.

    They allow me to build it in the real world then. Much easier than "Old Skool" techniques. Not that I'm knocking those techniques at all!

    Really amazing work!

    I'm new to TDH and costume/prop making. What do you use for your figure reference/size guide while in 3D to make sure it translates out at the correct size for patterns and templates?

    Thanks - looking forward to seeing more of your work!!

    Well, for the armor I sent a load of reference material over to a good friend of mine. We opted to only use game reference and not any photos of the figures, PA kits or other RC armor.

    He drew me up some blueprints of the RC armor and helmet based on those pics. He drew the blueprints over a human male template that matched my own human male base 3D model to ensure they both matched and that the proportions were correct.

    Then I just modelled it all using only the blueprints he created for me. Couldn't have done it without him.
