After a brief hiatus due to some health-related issues, I finally am close enough to 100% to complete my Snake P2 build.
I accidentally deleted my original Snake post.
Hopefully I can get up all the old pics, the new ones and detail the background for this build in his new posting.


My goal is to build the 1st complete Snake build and be as true to screen accurate as possible. With the help of Andy (Mr Fett) keeping me honest on the Lost Hunter legacy, I have been able to keep on track.

First task, get reference pics to use :

After getting these are more compiled, I started to get the pieces together.

I decided to get Chuck's (Ruffkintoy) new P2 skins and feet. Armor is built in and comes with the gauntlets, although I will not use them on this build :

  • P2 screen accurate molded beads from Andy (Mr Fett)

  • LEDs for P2 spear from Casey
  • Reindeer fur from a friend in Canada
  • Body netting from Joe (ta2pro)
  • Overall paint up by Joe (ta2pro)
  • Other odds and ends

Thanks for the kind words.

Looking forward to catching up.

Yes, I do.
After thinking more about it after I started piecing things together, I decided to display Lee's mask on it's own. I worry about any builds that will be worn getting 'beat up' a bit from wear and tear. My other builds were nicked up and dreads pulled out, etc. when I wore them.

I have 3 complete masks (dreads and accurate beads/quills)/neck ring) that I consider my best pieces that I have displayed in my rec room side by side : Bagy Elder painted Joe Evans (ta2pro), SM P1 closed mouth painted by Scott Marshall and Lee's P2 Snake with P1 mandibles painted by Lee himself. Because they aren't being worn, I didn't have to slit the back of the neck/heads and had them completely foamed with glass eyes added.

that's a great paint job!

question: do you plan on using velcro to keep the suit together or will you us another meathod?
I have the same skin from ruffin and that was a big issue I had with my build.

I have it rigged with velcro and suspenders inside the thighs. It actually works fine for me.
I put additional foam in mine to make sure it fit so that helps.

I had originally posted this but for those who missed it, here is a video of Lee's version of Snake which I have kept as a display piece vs wearing it in this build :

Suspenders inside the thighs? Could I please bother you for some pictures of how that's set up?

Build is slowly starting up again! Hope you are well.
Couple health setbacks put me behind schedule but I have caught up a bit and will continue to work on it until it is completed.

Couple of updates :

Andy (Mr. Fett) went OUT of his way to get me some P2 beads that were made from the original molds. These will go a long way in keeping my build as screen accurate as I can.

P2 Spear to use with this buid- Joe (ta2pro) helped me with this and did a get a great job painting it. This is going to be used with this build only. It is MUCH lighter than my Master Replica one and I will not be concerned if I dropped this one. Installing LEDS in it is all I have left to do.

Finally, for a peak at how far or how much I have left (depending at how you look at it!), here is what Snake looks like so far.

I have the netting, trophy necklace, deer fur and leather for the loin cloth (back) to finish. I have some different leather for the forearms I may go with as the ones I have on now.

I will add more updates as I finish this up. Good to be back it...
