Hey gang, DD here and planing on my next big project. I loved building my Centurion suit but was disheartened by my lack of skills to bring out the much needed details. That being said I decided to go w/ a full pep suit and take it to the next level (God please help me w/ the helmet!!!). I give no clues yet as to which one, but these 2 pic of the shin which is just about finished w/ stage 1 of it completion (forgot to get a side shot). Guesses and comments are always welcome........comments from the peanut gallery (FTOTR) are required.....

My time frame for this is 2+ years so I'm taking my sweet-ass time with it. I also have a few other projects on the front burners that I'm working on but will update you in separate threads later (when more progress is made).

Until then I wish everyone a very Happy Holiday and a sweet New Year.

Yes they did call me MC but I got a lot of Transformers, Pacific Rim, and a few others. I even got one “Ohhhh look, a Micronaute!!!” Now if you recognized that name, kudos to you. But sorry, Bzzzzzz! Not an MC.

My participation was demanded by Dirtdives so here I am. You're clearly making Robocop and Bumblebee.
Robobee? Bzzzzzzz! Next.

Looks to me like Kelly's armor. It's called "Hermes" in game.

Happy holidays to you all!
Ohhhhh sorry. Bzzzzz!

:love:Ohhhh Mrs Dirtdives must want some armor as well ;)
I would definitely make her a suit if she weren’t so dead set on NOT having a suit.

Already have a leg of Fred. Different armor. Bzzzzz!


I’ll give you guys anothe day or so. In the meantime I have a question. There are 2 pieces that fit into the sides of the knee joint area and I have no idea how to attach them once fiberglassed. Can I get some help please. Thanks.

Ok I’m anxious to see if I have this scaled correctly so here we go. Test fit # 1:

So.....if this is the correct size which I think it is, I’m going to be walking around bow-legged trying not to rub the knee joints together. I envision myself severely Charlie horsed and using ice packs on my nether region....... Dam this thing is bulky, but it looks sweet. Fits wearing a pair of jeans on so an under-suit should be no problem.

That looks an absolutely heck like recruit armor, but I think the indent on the inside and outside of the leg armor should be more square like so I am going to not buzz in with my final answer... feel free to tell me if I'm right or wrong though. If I'm right, I intended it, but if wrong, it doesnt count. Let me go home and look through all the armors tommorow!
