Wow, this is incredible!!!!
Wow, this is incredible!!!!
I was wondering how you were getting that hinge in. I was looking it over the other day and wondering where the other half went. good idea.
is the resin thin in those areas? I'm a little worried about cracking it if I tried place the latch in that way.
Hi, is it still possible to add myself to the next run?
Had a interesting question about your work with the PB3k, I remember reading that one of the options was a sound board that had a few minor sound effects what kind of chip are you using? was one of the things i was looking at if i could upgrade myself if i happen to make it in on your next run of the PB3k.
Hi, great job on the casts. You are doing the Fallout Fan World justice. I checked the thread and found dimensions for the screen and the interior diameter of the pip boy but what are the FULL dimensions of the PipBoy?
I couldn't get a cast in time for Halloween so I made one out of craft foam. it wasn't too shabby but it did turn out a bit big. i'm hoping to carve and more true to size version for PAX-E.
thanks in advance.

Love this game and totally dig this prop. One of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Fantastic!
When can we expect to see another run of these amazing casts? I've been drooling over them for a while now.
magnets would be a good choice for keeping it closed
where did you get the led screen?
Possibly coming soon from a Skruffy near you!
Tonight, Skruffy and I (and our fabulous wives) got together to do a little work on another costume we've been working on. I had picked up a trial size of FlexFoamIt! X for an oxygen mask we need to make for a 'group' costume.
Well, the first attempt at pouring this stuff went really really bad. It's got a pot life of about 45 seconds and we couldn't pour it into the mold fast enough, and it just ended up filling the top of the mold and the bottom didn't do anything.
So, we decided to go for broke and make a flexible Pipboy, since the mold was a little more conducive to a really quick pour. So, we mixed up another batch and poured it in, then slapped in the push.
About half an hour later and a little trimming we came away with this!
We were pretty pleased with how well the detail picked up, but it's a little too flexible.
Still, an interesting concept that we're going to attempt again with a more rigid flexible foam. Not too sure if this is something that's going to end up getting offered since we don't really know if the final product will work the same as a resin cast, but one of us will be sure to post a WIP since we're both pretty excited about the prospect of a durable Pipboy.
After watching nuka break I knew that I had to have my own pip boy. Found this link and wow you really did a fantastic job. When you do another run I want 2. One with the exact specs you did and one for experimenting and I'm sure I'll end up screwing one up.
are these kits still available? I'm super-interested in building a pipboy!
Is there ANYBODY still making these molds?
Is anyone even still interested in this project?
lucqassparda: Not at the moment. Yes. Yes, I certainly think so.
This is a build thread to document my Pip-Boy build and for others to show off (or link to) their own builds. This is not a sales thread - that takes place in the junkyard. Can we please keep discussion and questions regarding sales to PM or to the JY?
I did warn the mods about this right after his Pipboy and Rpf was adventist on Indy mogul.
I suggested that they need some kind of letter that is shown when new members log in for the first time that explains that any deals are done in the junkyard.
I have to admit, I had shown several members on other forums as well as some friends about the pip-boy and I know they were going to sign up. Hope you guys are reading the rules out there, if not the rules, then Skruffy's own comments!
its called a PM
