    Are there any designs to create the gauntlets for a Cylon costume?

    Check the first page of the thread; the gauntlets are available in two varieties. My simple ones, and movieman's more complex right gauntlet.

    If you're referring to the gloves; you'll have to dig those up on Ebay. They're a commonly available hockey glove that's modified and usually painted black.

    Check the www.wegottafindearth.com link for details.

    Being a big BSG fan from way back when, I noticed this thread the other day and it inspired me to work on one of the missing pieces to BazookaJo's awesome cylon armor.

    Now I'm no wiz at this stuff, but the 3D model of the sword & sheeth I made last night actually turned out pretty good (see pic), so if y'all want, I can try to convert it to an unfolded pep file and add it to the download section.

    P.S. There's a little more detail to the model than what the pic shows, but Blender's standard prewiew mode is rather lacking. :oops:

    Well I did try to unfold it yesterday, but I got a bunch of weird shapes because the model doesn't want to import into the Pepakura program very well. So, give me some time to learn more about how to work with Pep to get the sword to a presentable state... right now it's pretty FUBAR. :curse:

    Note, Some 3d models are made using shapes that overlap, basically, one shape hides some of another shape. Pepa unfolds all shapes, not just the visible parts. This could be the root of your problem... Good luck!

    Nope, I design everything as a one-piece hollow model, so that's not the problem. I'm thinking it's probably how Blender exports, since Pep won't accept an .obj file from Blender, but it will accept an .obj made from other programs. I'll eventually figure it out. ;)

    Has anyone come across some child sized plans for the Classic Cylon?, or should this request be placed within a separate thread?

    After 6 months and 3 attempts at this helmet I finaly managed to make a good fiberglass master. I take it to show one of my mates and his comment was "Its good, but you know it would look better if you Steampunked it", at that point I promptly gave him the files and wished him luck, cause I had enough fun making my first one, but i must admit he was right, it would be an awsum Steampunk project.

    This is exactly what I have been looking for, and I should have enough time to do this one right and be ready for halloween. (Unlike my Jango fett build which got rushed and incomplete).

    I did read that, My bad, I'm interested because it seems bazooka jo and you are the only sources for some kind of parts for cylon suits, My specialty is vacuum forming and I have just completed a presentation on vac forming at By Your Command, and I am looking for a way to make plugs and I thought I could build a bazooka jo model and make plugs from them, as I scoured the web I found you guy's here and saw the sleeves you were designing and got excited! so I guess I'll have to make some posts so I can see your work!

    Thanks again Big Al

    Yeah, but they're even cheaper if you make them yourself.:mrgreen::thumb:
