    Update 19 part 3

    If you haven't seen the previous two, I suggest you do before you look at these, also, sorry for the triple-post, but a month and a half leads to a lot of photos!

    Radio-Case: The case and holster for the Radio is constructed from 3mm craft "foamies" and wrapped to form a tight seal. To help you envision it, think of those foam beer-can holders to keep your drink cool, same concept. After I finished wrapping, I covered it in green fabric, and installed a strap for mounting. A few rivets and it's ready to go. The nice thing is that the radio is still removable :D

    To mount it to the back-plate, I pulled the straps through it and glued them to the back, making an effective mount.

    That's it for construction pics, I have some photo shoot pictures of the suit, the back yard needed to be cut, and I though it would make a nice setting. NOTICE: THE SUIT ISN'T FINISHED, just wanted to make that clear, understood? there is still plenty of work to be done.

    Also note that these pics were taken before riveting and the radio pouch... and yes, I noticed that I forgot a knee-cover, fail lol.

    Yes that is a smiley-face button. Is it planned to stay on the suit? You bet your care-package loving bum it is :D

    The back plate might look disproportional, but I assure you that it looks better in person, the photo doesn't do much justice.

    Alright guys *stretches arms out* That's it for this update, I guarantee there will be at least ONE new picture before the end of this month, and let me say a personal thank you for everyone who has been following this thread from the beginning, all your support has been invaluable! and to leave off, here's my favorite picture so far:

    You're build looks great.
     
  6. Makes me wanna say:

    Pain incoming.

    Lookin great! only qualm is the front looks a lot less armored than the back...dunno if you've still got more to do on that or not...But I love all the details you put into the forearm greaves :D

    Not many more plans are made for the front, at least, not armor-wise. In many ways, the front is actually more armored, since there are knee-pads, protectors, a chest-plate, ballistic mask, and several other pieces (the collar). The back only looks more armored due to the many pockets and pouches it will have. When it comes to the front, there might be a few more details, but mostly more back work for now... maybe a few de-com grenades? And thanks for the compliment, the majority of it is just burn-work with the smallest wood-burning tip for my hot-tool, and a few rivets. Your suit is looking pretty fantastic as well.

    Psquiddy,
    That was an awesome build. Please post after you take it to the airsoft field. It will be a huge hit, no doubt.

    Lol still not done yet man, but thanks for the feedback, It will have to be played with custom rules though, not many people I know would want to follow the Juggernaut rules :D

    Probably formed plastic or foam, possibly use vaccu-form for a better fit.

    Just a quick Mini-update:

    Decided that a general deadline for this project will be October 30th, so I'll have the suit ready for my Youth's Halloween party (costumes welcome :D). One of the things I need to knock out it the Helmet.


    [​IMG]

    Previously, I didn't think I could go with a standard airsoft helmet, since it would have been $30 to ship, and the helmet mounts on the sides (I like to call them ears) would have gotten in the way of the collar. I visited my local Halloween store and found a "army helmet" thats made of durable ABS.

    [​IMG]

    Although it doesn't look that detailed, it has the general shape and form I'm going for. Also I will be able to add my own buckles and straps so it has a tighter fit on my head, AND the simple shape allows it to be easily customized so it looks more like the picture (the blast shield on the front, lettering, and details on the back. Wish me luck!

    Just an idea on how to get the same sort of texture for the helmet, make a paper mache helmet then cut out the front part of the helmet in the above post (painted differently). It's just a suggestion, but I think it would give the rougher texture that the helmet has. (though I don't know how mache works.). Good luck.

    I bet truck bed liner from Walmart would make that look just like the model. Plus it sold be easy as heck to do.

    I second that one. Or you could try the spray on drywall texture. Everything has turned out looking great by the way. Can't wait to see those pics of the paintball appearance.

    Before I used a mich 2000 I think the helmet was called for mine now I use a vietnam fighterpiolet helmet

    @ Azule: If I could get one , I would

    @ Tiberius and Spartan 127: That's a great idea since I have to re-paint the helmet anyways when I get it. First priorities though are to get it strapped and such.

    @ Seth: Good Idea, but the paper mache wouldn't hold up to a bb going 500 feet a second into it.

    If u do use it for airsoft just watch for weak spots in the armor I played in mine last week and my legs had some exposed spots and that's where everyone aimed at

    Another Small update:

    Well it was raining here today, so I decided to pause the Halo and get some smaller details done on the suit. I noticed that I needed a balaclava, and yes, in the early pictures I had one. Well that one was really a ski mask, and if you live in Florida... well, let's just say that wool and cotton are not the best things to skin-tight wrap your head in with only two little eye-holes to get fresh air out of...

    so as you might have guessed I made a balaclava. I already have some meager sewing skills, so I sewed the base-seams together with the Balaclava inside-out (so you don't see the seams) and then -since I have no trust in my meager sewing skills- sealed the seams with extra fabric and hot glue. My end result was a simple and effective Balaclava that should fith the job quite nicely. Enjoy the pics;

    It's nice to know I can cut corners here and there when I need simple things, why order a $15 Balaclava with $10 S&H when I can make one from an old black T-shirt and lots--hot glue :D

    Nice improvisation! Just one on thing. Are you going to be adding anything else to the mask part of the helmet? Like the goggle like things, or is it done?
     
  22. Psquiddy

    Psquiddy Member

    Mask is mostly done, I need to add the telescopic goggles and paint the D**n thing lol
