    Ok, new mem card has been bought. Will take some pics and load them tonight when I get home from work. It's not an exact replica. A few modifications were requested by my wife to allow our son to see and hear better. Therefore the plastic windscreen was removed and two side panels were removed from the sides of the head.

    Here are a few pics of the torso after being worn to a halloween party at his school and another halloween party at his sister's daycare. So far it has held up pretty well, but the shoulder mounted SRM-6 fell victim to Darth Vader and his lightsaber at the second party. Thankfully I made spares of almost every part. Not sure why it is showing up so splotchy in the pictures. In person it is a uniform black and red. The red parts show up pink in the pictures. The arms and legs are in the van at the moment, so I will have to get pics of those later.

    He looks awesome! And that's my favorite merc unit as well: the Wolf's Dragoons. :thumb:

    Great work!

    Not yet. I fiddled with it a bit. It won't be quite 1.2m tall, but I think it would give your average battledroid (My son's into Clone Troopers) something to scream "Roger, roger!" I plan on getting it printed off on 11x17 this weekend. I will definitely be doing a build-along. The engineering aspect might be kind of weird. It has to be able to handle a 5-year old, have an opening cockpit, and be sturdy enough to stand on its own. I will probably break with tradition and use non-paper materials in construction.

    Angle iron and rebar sound like good ideas at the moment. :mrgreen:

    Man that is going to be awesome. I really hope you plan on posting progression pictures of the build.

    I have always wanted to build a 2m tall Mech from Mechwarrior 3 since they are simpler to build, but have never tried it, since I have no idea how to build it. I know I wanted to use hardboard but lack the skill and knowledge on how to construct it and fitting the pieces. Hopefully your build will help me out.

    Awesome costume UKX. Nicely done. I'll bet thats one happy kid in there.

    I did something similar for my lads the past couple of years. Here's a bit of a vid on the mech costumes I made out of cardboard

    btw, that Awesome is...awesome. I can't wait to get to work on one of these. And so many texture schemes to choose from. Fantastic work Cantaris. Thanks for posting Blaar.

    ps. You likely already saw this from the previous year's costume project, but here's a link again.

    I found a legit copy of a Warhammer last week. It is free. The link was from paper-replika.com.
