fingaz,thats looking awsome man!
fingaz,thats looking awsome man!
been trial fit on someone 5.10 n looks fine.
raising the insole of the boot will give xtra height,but the pivot/knee will remain in the same place,unless you remove a small section from the calf where the flaps sit.
unfortunately my legs just aint long enuff,but at a later date i'll mold them and remove a few inches
can't wait for the updates!
received a parcel monday from italy from Gemini Khan
when i opened it,a big smile covered my face
absolutely beautiful piece of craftsmanship,infact bloody superb.
well that was it suit on hold n helmet time(felt like a kid with his first model kit) .refine my helmet at a later date.
so a few hrs here a few hrs there been spent this week,to get this beauty finished.
fulvio thanks very very much i salute you
peeps if you aint got one,get one you wont be disappointed
WOW, that helmet is amazing...
Can you provide details of where you got it from please ? How much ?
Wow bro amazing job on this.
How the h@!! did you get the clear coat so damn shiny? what is the magic?
Very impressive work! The only thing that worries me with the Pepakura>fiberglass>bondo method is the sheer weight of the armour afterwards.
The helmet turned out beautiful. Perfect finish on it. What was wrong with the one you made? I thought it looked great too!
i'm reading this from my cell phone...no words...u did an incredible job! Gotta go get my jaw...wow
That Helmet is amazing in every way Fingaz seriously!! I really dont know how you do it butg ill have to come over from Ireland for some lessons haha
Pretty frakin awesome mate!!!!
3 coats:1 light coat for grip,1 wetter coat and then a heavy wet coat to the point where it could almost run(but this time it didn't ),for that gloss finish,n a lot of practice
my helmet which looks more aggresive,due to smaller forehead,eyes,which im gonna rectify.
nowt new today,happened to drop one of biceps its knackered,aint bothered though started reshaping the other one to make it easier for casting then just cut them to suit,happy days
few more pics
Hahaha Ill pop over on the boat sometime for that drink and the lessons, id only love it looking at your work and thanks for the PM tomorrow that would be great my friend.
P.S if your casting these ill deff take one of you :-)
Great work man, simply amazing what paint did u use?
Just gets better and better bro, I LOVE the colors got a rich deep color how did you achieve that effect? I only ask because when i get to this stage i don't want to paint my helmet and it come out like CRAP lol. probably will though seeing how this is my first pep
keep it up i love the updates keep them coming
Looking well good mate, that paintwork looks a lot like your wearing a Ferrari Transformer!!! Keep up the pace and It'll force me to get my creaky old finger out :
looks mint,realy good paint work aswell
curious if you could post the type of paint used as well as how did you do the black accent lines?? sooo clean =D
It looks soooo shiny...i love it
the paint ive used is like you find on hotrods/bikes
its a 3 stage candy pearl can be tricky to apply.
1 the bright silver basecoat (straight forward to apply)
2 red candy pearl over the silver,(the tricky one)because this is translucent you apply 3/4/5 coats but the overlap as you,re spaying has to be bang on!!!!! otherwise the red will look patchy dark n light stripes,when the sun hits it.
3 the lacquer
the accent line are cleaned with a needle file,n rubbed over with black stove polish
also a big thanks to xrobot, been doin a little rework to my shoulder bells with his popcan idea,sheer genius,look better now
pics to come later
Fantastic paint job to go with a fantastic helmet by GK. Very impressive.
fingaz......Your suit is ***** AWESOME!!
wow the paint job is so nice
just a little clean up work this week.
converted the bicep to universal and sharpened up the details ready for molding.
made 2 molds,redbull can,coke can n 2 pop bottle tops(thanks again to xrobot for that idea)
shoulder bells have both been reworked,detailing added and new pivots added.
next was the elbow guard,added the details and new pivots added.great improvement,the elow guards n shoulder bells look finished now
cleaned up the forearm,added a little more definition.
just need to get some silcone bought,to get the arms molded n cast.
Your skills just bother me! LOL
