A full suit was recently completed, but I'll have to wait for the buyer to release the photos. Hopefully I can post some here when the time comes :)

This looks awsome so far, you going to make a full suit? and whats the made of, the only way I've seen these made is with floor form and an old helemt, still looks freaking awsome!! ^^

I'd have to rely on a master armor builder to make all the parts, then I could paint and detail them to look insane..or that would be my plan. lol.

The cost to build would be thousands to do though...a wonderful idea, but for now I'm just going to stick with the detailed helmets. This one just needs a bit more work and a visor to finish it off. I'll post photos when it finally gets there!

Sweet stuff! Are you responsible for the sculpt and cast, or just the paintjob?
Reply

JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks! Just the paint, the cast was made by Tony Pagan :)

That is a great first pull!. Am I correct in assuming that's rondo-cast? All my completed helmets are done via the Pepakura and fiberglass methods and they are rather tricky to get right. Are you a member of the 405th forums?

By the way, if you ever need to make a cheap gold visor, then Design Master Billiant Gold 731 spray paint can make a rather reflective visor that you can still see though. Its not the best, but it is cheap and works.

:iconjohnsonarms:
JohnsonArms Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
That was actually made by a friend, Tony Pagan. He does some really nice work and currently has an improved version in the works. I look forward to adding the visor, thanks for the suggestion of the design master brand. Looks like good stuff :)

I'm on the 405th site, but I haven't posted in a long while. I should, I just run out of time and didn't want to overkill with the photo posting

I run by the same name on the 405th, and I'm in a similar boat in terms of activity. So to say that life gets crazy and projects get postponed. I hope to get back on there someday, the guilt is rather getting to me.

Anyway, good luck-
