    With the impending release of Fallout 4 I am building my son an NCR ranger for this years Glasgow Comicon.
    I have started with the helmet and mask.
    I used the NeXXt pep file which I printed on 300gsm card, you need to manually feed the card with a bit of force in the printer but it is so much easier to work with.

    I then applied a layer of fiberglass resin inside and out, then added fiberglass matting inside for strength.

    Then car body filler to smooth the angles from the Pep.

    Followed by a serious amount of sanding........

    I added the side mounted camera, light and comms unit, I wasn't too bothered about a perfect finish as this is a post apocalyptic item.
    I then added some battle damage including a close call with a Deathclaw :)

    After a few coats of primer I went with an army green base colour.

    Then on to weathering

    I am adding a functional torch and a camera with a red led next.

    That is where I am at for the helmet, I will add my progress for the mask next.

    I hope you enjoy and any advice is greatly appreciated.

    A bit more work with the mask.
    I made the air filter from a tuna tin and added the lip around the vent hole with polymer clay.

    Cheers for the positive feedback guys.

    I have added the red reflective lenses. I used red EL wire around the inside of the eye holes to give it the night vision glow effect.

    I'm going to fit a small fan inside the mask to keep good airflow.

    A bit more progress with the helmet and mask. The con is 4 days away so it's panic stations :) just the air hose and decals to apply and it's done.
