after months and months trawlling these pages i thought i'd try my hand at building my very own pred suit!

ive made a start, and already have a shoulder cannon/caster, wrist gauntlets, P1 closed mouth mask (mannowar) and some dreads

compliment of Lee aka (Skunk).

i live in england so alot of the products like proa side and permawet arnt available to us over here so any advice on painting tips would be greatly appreciated!!

any ways i will post up more of my work when i get there, as my mr i suit is up ready for latex..... so thats my next big job!

here are a few pics

regards

over the last couple of days been concentrating on my mr i suit.

latexing the suit, im currently on layer 3 to which ive added ochre yellow, to hopefully get away from the mr i red.

ive also made a custom chest and attached to the suit, along with a few bumps on the tops of the shoulders

who knew working with latex could be so much fun! and stinky! ...

another quick update....

just finished the base coat for the mr i suit, so hopefully the next couple of weeks i will be painting him up..

to match my mannowar P1 mask, and then hopefully adding some armour, hands and feet to complete this beast!

couple of pics of mr i......

update...

today i have spent about 5 hours on my mr i suit, laying an all over white base coat, then sanding and defining the muscles, then moved onto light brown.
again defining and adding some mid layer spots....

i still have to do, dark brown layer, then mixed brown/black layer then add spots to the whole suit...

its gonna take a while i think...

a few pics from this afternoon

the main reason i went with the mr i suit, was the prices of a full skin.....

and looking at the mr i huntorial i thought id try my hand, but my way...

actually for the price it didnt cost that much to do, just very time consuming, as to date its taken almost three months, and yet i havent completed a piece.

as im working on different parts at the same time....

but i do appreicate the support from the uk....

as we dont have access to half the stuff the boyz in the states have!

right guys n galls,

a major update here now, ive been really busy with work and family life so havent been able to work on him much....

however i have managed to finish the head, minus a few dreads, and a bio..... but its painted and sealed....

also the mr i suit is completly painted and sealed now, but needs another sealant coat i think...

but i put the mannowar armour on just to see the fit.....must say its pretty damn close...

whaat dya think ???

1 x leather flap
1 x set of P1 hands
1 x set of P1 feet
1 x set of P1 shin and knee armour
