decided to remake my 4 night build, nothing movie accurate but this time just doing it when i have time and not under pressure, a budget, fun build for halloween.



stuff lying around the house, old cardboard calendars, duct tape, plumbers putty, pva glue and flat black spray paint......





obviously a work in progress...



side by side comparison with the old cowl...





full paint to check for areas of improvement...( a lot of areas lol )

this was half a days worth of work.:)

..will do the neck seal next...

It amazes me every time I see a build like this, the quality of work with such basic materials. Very nice work.

Re: Dark Knight duct tape remake



prototype shoulder bell and arm armor...




gauntlets....cardboard hot glued to bike arm guards...




cowl and neck seal test fit....



...and all of the finished parts so far...
excuse the roughness of the build, they are all done by guesstimate sizing and doing it by eye..

will do the abs armor next.....

That looks insanely good my friend. That cowl is unbelievable. Cannot believe you did that with the materials you did that with. Brilliance.

This is great! The cowl looks amazing considering what it's made from.

thanks...being a pack rat has its perks...the raw materials (read...junk hehe) comes from the storage room full of stuff that should have been thrown away long ago. i would have loved to just purchase a cowl but one can only order it online from over here and the credit card statement will probably irk the wife :lol. so i make do with what i can scrounge.

thanks..:), wasnt able to do much today ( ran out of duct tape..hehe, ) plus the wife and kid is under the weather.

but was able to make some improvements on the gauntlets and the arm armor, will post pics when i've figured out what i can use for the abs( aside from duct tape), and finish making it...
