This is my attempt at recreating a drive suit for Cherno Alpha from Pacific Rim. I'll keep this first post updated with my progress as I work on this.
I'm still deciding how to approach this, foam or fiberglass. I have decided that, for accuracy, I am going to 3D model the pieces. I've had no real experience with Blender, but I'm picking it up quickly and making decent progress. I'm hoping to have my first armor piece rendered by the end of the weekend.
Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. HD w/ Nomex.
The movie one on the right has been significantly weathered, but the stitching is the same. The leather strap and buckle has been added and the two metal rivets added to the velcro flap.
Having no luck identifying this suit, it was likely that it was custom made for the movie. I've been in touch with a costumer/seamstress and have decided to "outsource" this to her. She has identified the fabric as duck cloth, for anyone interested.
