Not helpfull to your quest, but for what it is worth, I built a Robocop armor from Scratch. This was in back in the 90s, before the Internet became way too popular to ignore. My motivation was that I'd be the ONLY KID IN THE WORLD WITH HIS OWN ROBOCOP ARMOR!!!!
Then, came the internet and more people than I imagined had these. Oh, well. I still built one and kicked butt.
Enjoy the pics and the links to the making of it at, the bottom of the page:
