    Nov 16, 2012, 9:27 PM - Fallout New Vegas: NCR Veteran Ranger Build WIP #1

    I'm building my first costume for The RPF, as this is my first Thread! Anyway its not like you guys havenít seen this build before, however it will be modified a little just to make it easier on myself. I donít have access to all the fancy equipment I have seen around this forum. This is going to be a first for me with a lot of materials and procedures.
    I chose this build because I am a massive fan of the "Fallout" series and the rangers from New Vegas are something everybody can recognize when they seem one. I was really interested in using polystyrene plastic and foam, as they seemed extremely useful. I decided that this would be a great learning experience and I really hope it goes well!

    I started with the helmet before the body armor. The initial step was to use a classic pepakura file to build a cardstock copy of the mask. This will serve as a base that I can use to base my styrene copy around. After this step I'll build the styrene cutouts.

    I had to cut out another set of pepakura images in order to trace them on to a .030" styrene sheet.


    I glued the images onto the sheet so they would not move when I traced them.


    I was able to cut out the styrene with scissors because it was so thin! This made it so I would be able to recut out any shapes that I ruined. I highly suggest buying 0.030" styrene if anyone else wants to carry out this build.

    I've cut the cutouts in order to make them fit with more a jagged look, but with the flexibility of the plastic I don't think it was necessary. I put the pieces together with tape, but I will later glue them together.

    These were taken after I had took a painstaking amount of time to individually superglue each of the seams together.

    Me supergluing some of the parts on the mouth piece of the helmet:


    The helmet is taking its shape, but I had to cut out a large amount of my own modified pieces in order to make it all fit together correctly.

    Indeed, my friend. I love everything about this charactor. I'll be especially interested when you get to the jacket. I was thinking about making a similar jacket, but I'd like to see how others go about it. Keep us updated with this build!
