Bubblehead's Wip also my first kit
« on: Mar 17, 2015, 12:05 AM »
So I have been mostly posting the progress in the forum for my local clan.
Finally made it to an armor party last weekend and I am now ready to share with the world.
So lets start with my bucket shall we.
Its a scratch build from a 5 gal bucket and a skateboarding helmet.
the paint job at the end is going to be redone was just excited to get it done

OOPS. Looks like the diamond dropped.


The zipper will be hidden.

Looking great so far. I bought a similar-style bike helmet for my bucket. I may have to do the same as you did with yours, as long as the design I've drawn up is okay with the app team. :)

your weapons both still look pretty nerfy. for the pistol, smooth the top part flat, and add some greebs, maybe a scope too; for the rifle, chop off the carry handle on top and do something with the barrel part, and if i remember correctly, exposed circuit boards are not acceptable as greebs

Your build seems to be coming along great. However as the others pointed out, the weapons still have some pretty evident nerf telltale signs.
- Pistol: it's still easily recognized as a Firestrike, the disk shape on the sides is the biggest evidence of this.
- Rifle: the carry handle and the front shroud are the giveaways on this one, nice job so far on hiding the longshot base for most of it though.

Nerf mods, as I understand it, require lots of mods and shape alteration to be considered viable as approved props for the sake of getting OM status. If however this is not your goal, then please do continue your work! You got some nice mods done and a heck of a smooth finish!

The weapons are taking the most work and I was trying to have them done by ECCC at the end of the month.  I'll just concentrate on finishing my kit, set aside the big gun and finish up the pistol. My goal is to be OM. This is mostly what I think as a major trail run.  I hope to be able to use most of what I have for my final kit.
I know the guns need more work and I can take care of that after con( currently place holders for con). My main concern is the actual armor and soft pieces right now.
And I do want and need any input anyone is willing to give.
And on another note my primary color is rust with secondary as dark green. White and light ivory as highlight/accent colors.
Flight suit, boots, and flak vest are black.

I know its been a few since I posted some updated pics.  Well I got enough done to wear to Emerald City Comicon this last weekend.
I know I'm missing the knee armor and boot  armor.  I did not get the tanks for done for the flame thrower guantlet or the blaster rifle.
But what I did get done looks pretty good I think.
I apologize for not having any pics of just the finished pieces but here s what I got














Pic of the back plate kinda
