First attempt looks good so far, that looks like a hasbro conversion bucket and scratch built armour, so yeah man great first go, keep it up.... and it’s cheaper than a Harley :lol:

many thanks and oh dear, I thought I got away with the conversion ! but its completely now not a child's toy anymore and painted to 100% as I can get it, till I decide to look for a nice new one, but I miss the cheesy voice and sound effects:( And yes it is indeed a scratch build all done from templates foamex boarding and lots of painstaking recoats of paints and masking fluids and hot gun battle scars, both me and the armour.

Thank you kindly.
Moving again slowly forward.
My gutter pipe (Who cares whether the roof is now leaking or not?;)) gauntlets, made from scratch using old gutter pipe a dremmel, contact adhesive, a piano hinge and lots of swearing! I must express, PPE (personal Protective Equipment) must be used whilst doing all this, unless you want to sound like an asthmatic pitpony who looks like he's just walked through a plastic snow blizzard, it's safety first!
Again making good use of things that I've found!
But the wife is going to go nuts o_O

I'm now consumed by all this o_O
but I am now trying to slow it down as while building all this,
this is what happened !
My cod piece went wonky, my chest plates where not straight,
my range finders lights always came on too late,
as for my soft parts I really should not mention,
bits of me started to turn blue with all the almighty tension,
now after building this so called work of art I really should of been smiling instead of wearing and deep frown,
as what with all of my rushing I realised while wearing all this armour I would never again be able to sit down !.o_O

My old washed bed sheet and mattress topper for foam backing, flak vest, which a good friend (who was a tailor in her working career), did all the sewing on this.
I need to mention that, as I was always taught never to take the gratitude for others good work or the blame for there bad work ether!
So I am not only making good use of the things that I find, I'm also making use of my good friends that I've found too o_O

Just cant keep out of the workshop and every time I'm in there I get bitten by the building bug !
here's a quick chest armour build made from a old signboard a Dremel and heat gun for battle scarring and then a dash of paint !
