    Hello to all the members of the RPF, this is my first attempt at anything like this and I am very grateful to you all for the prompts and ideas I have gleaned from this site.
    i hope my attempts are up to the standards expected.
    I used many new products during this build, from Worpla to leather and even fibreglass. I found patience is the key.
    i am going to Comicon in Manchester this July, so will add more pictures as I get them. Feel free to ask any question, and I am quite willing to share any specs I have or tips on materials.
    cheers

    The knife started life as a chopping board, the lawgiver was a ps2 light gun, and the utility belt was built from the contents of my junk box in the garage. The helmet began life as a pepakura paper kit which I then hardened with fibreglass. Oh and the tech drawing of the lawgiver was done from screen shots I found here on various threads.

    Thanks for the feedback. Still need some work on the helmet as it catches on the collar piece and makes my head look massive.

    I think I have made the collar piece too big. I have a second helmet as yet unfinished, so I am experimenting with making this shorter without ruining my comicon outfit.
    Thanks for the advise, and the photo as we'll. I'll keep you posted.
