Well I have decided to go big. Really big. All 7'6 of him. I have started the preliminary stuff like research already. I have even started to get a few kits. I have Duck's skull and face kit on the way and I have some gorilla hands on the way as well. For the suit I will be doing all the latch work with my GirlFriend who has sworn to me she knows what she is doing...(pray she is telling the truth). On the thinking board is the stilts. I need about 12 inches under my feet. I am thinking about doing a steal based welded set up. Ill get into that a bit later when I approach that step. For now, however I am working on the armor bits. I just finished working on the chest and the belt buckle. I know its not a million percent accurate, but I think its pretty good. I will be casting these parts so I can have the back pieces. The next part for me to tackle will be the shoulder bells. Well I am off to think tank those. If you know anyone who has made them alaready, that would be a great relief to me. But if not, I am more than capable of making something. Just more time added to the build.
Well here are the first pics of what I have done. I will update as I do more.
