Sweet! What are you using for the black vest underneath the white vest?
Jul 20, 2007, 5:31 PM - Re: Bossk Progress Thread
It´s like hell
But there´s enough space inside the mask to open the eyes ;-)

I used a black imitation leather for the black vest.
The white flak vest is made by Phil Falter,
here´re some links of his finished vest:
Now I´am still working on the metall parts...

You are doing a great job with this.

Eyes look great, Nice squint to them. C

So the big question is...where do you see out of it from? And also...are you doing runs? ROFL just kidding about doing runs, but do you use the eyes to see out of?

Great work on your Bossk!! I too am working on one myself. I have a head, arms and hands that I was lucky enough to stumble across on Ebay. I am now in the process (in what little free time I have) to alter them to my liking. It looks like you started with the same mask i did! I am also now seeking to create the entire outfit to go with it. Flight suit and flak vest isn't a problem. All the bits and pieces that go on it are quite another story. I'll have to mold most of them from scratch I guess.
I have one question, do you, or anyone, know where to attain a Schermuly Anti-Riot Gun? A replica of it, or at least something similar to it to work with? I've searched and searched and come up empty.

I've got a completed Bossk and have been looking for a Schemuly for a couple years, but had no luck. I ended up just making my Rebley from scratch.

What is a Schemuly?
Jan 14, 2008, 11:10 AM - Re: Bossk Progress Thread
Sorry, I spelled it wrong. Schermuly.
It's an anti-riot gun that shoots gas cannisters for crowd control purposes. I'm not sure if they're still in service or not, but it is a purely police/SWAT issued weapon, not available for commercial markets, so there probably are very few of the things floating around out there.
The Schermuly is the gun used as a basis for Bossk's Rebley grenade launcher. In fact, the only additions are two M40 scopes (which are easy as pie to find) and some sort of doodad on the end of the barrel which is super easy to fabricate.

That Bossk is looking awesome!!
Great job on it.

I think I have one of your old masks. I will be repaining it though.
Jan 16, 2008, 12:59 PM - Re: Bossk Progress Thread
Hey that Bossk is looking good Sven! Looking forward to see the whole costume come together!

I like the resculpt on the hand.
I was always under the impression that the ESB hands were the same on both side (a real time saver, eh?). I missed who said it earlier up top, but his arms are really long in the movie. If you look at the distance between a human shoulder and elbow, then elbow and wrist, you'll notice they are pretty similar. On most people anyway. Then look at the pictures and make the same comparison on Bossk.
Go-go Gadget forearms.
