Main paint all done except for a few minor touch ups.











I'll do final assembly when I get more parts in.
I got some parts coming from Shapeways to replace the RF topper, so I hopefully can contain the lights to the top. I will also add dental files in back.

Servo shaft extension test fitting.

Drilled stalk and helmet with a 3/8" bit to fit shaft. drilled 17/64" hole for grub screw, taped hole with #6 tap. Worked like a charm.



Test servo fit.

Nothing here is permanently done and only test fit to see how it works, but it once I get to know how the servo is set and how much to cut off the servo shaft it will be done.

Helmet is done except for the electronics and chin strap.
The complete RF topper is from Shapeways, I hope to contain the electronics inside as it is fully hollow inside top and bottom. The red dental files in the back are from Shapeways as well.








Servo is now mounted and fully functional pending on how I decide to power it.

Hey Lynn!

Did you buy a servo kit from someone or did you make that yourself?  I know people have made them from RC car parts.  I've got two sets.  One from Fettronics and the other from Salamanderking.

I got the servo off eBay and the servo extension from Servo city. I still haven't decided on how I want to power it.

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Thanks! I get to test it out this weekend at a local SW night Hockey game. I had issues with the gauntlets coming apart during test fitting with the whole suit and I had to add Velcro to help keep them together.
