    Lightbulb Life-size Warthog Build (WIP)

    I was planning on building a simple object first like an assault rifle or a helmet for a first project. But i though might as well start big then if i can do that i can do anything, if anyone has any objections or thinks otherwise then please let me know. Any advice is welcomed and appreciated. But for now, a warthog is gonna be built...pics soon

    There's a huge difference between a full-size Warthog build and a wearable armor/weapon prop build. The techniques, skills, and experience needed for each of them is quite varied, so I don't think that being able to build a full scale Warthog necessarily translates to being able to build armor or weapons.

    There's nothing wrong with going all out and attempting to build a real Warthog, but please keep in mind that it doesn't necessarily prepare you for other costuming projects. (Though fair warning, the only full-size 'Hog I've seen finished is the WETA one. I've yet to see an amateur builder complete one, so forgive me/us if we're a little skeptical). You most likely will have a much better chance of success by starting smaller, getting your feet wet and building confidence for larger projects.

    Just my opinion.

    I second Spitfire's comment. Either way, good luck to you and whatever build you choose!
    Thought I'd try shooting my way out—mix things up a little

    Check out my Mark VI build! http://www.405th.com/showthread.php/...161#post546161

    Good for you if you want to attempt this. Good luck!

    Everyone, just a raise of hands, how many have you heard of posts wanting to make a warthog? A lot. Next question, how many of you have actually seen a warthog completed, besides WETA. The answer is none.

    Intresting, this is the second warhog build I've seen using a land rover. The other being the one built for Operation Chastity. Good luck with this build its always fun watchin people go after big projects like this!

    Since the time I joined last year, I haven't seen a complete warthog build. Perhaps I missed Operation Chastity. I did a search and locate the website of Operation Chastity. The three photos posted by Cadena belong to Operation Chastity. Perhaps Cadena care to comment?
