Ok If you want my real situation you can just read my profile. But i do have a dream and it is to make a predator suit with my brother(hes maken his own) and head off to the San Diego Comic Con with the predator convention clan, that'd be awsome i already know a couple personally that've been there.

Im Nightmare Pred and this is my suit and its build. sry i dont have very many progression pics, mostly completed ones. I dont have much money or resources, with that said...LET US BEGIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





First, the Med pack,
All i used was some foam core, high density styrafoam, foamies, blickrylic paint spounges and hot glue.


Secondly i made the chopper predator bio,
I bought the resin cast off of ebay and then went from there drilling out the visor area and smoothing out the edges.

this is how it was when it showed up at my door.

Then i started drilling painting trying out different thing and started thinking up of a general color.
I'd like to give a big thanks to HDOGG for supporting me and backing me up :)
I'm not gonna say your real name just in case you dont want me to

Here are some general pics of the helmet in progress. first i used a type of automotive primer grey as a primer two even coats, then the main flat black over it and did about 4 even coats for that charcoal look. MMMMMMMMMM Nice and black like it just came out of a house fire.

i did the primer first before the flat black

Started adding the metallic silver to bio after flat black.

Now here are some finished shots of the helmet paint job once again thanks hdogg and my dad for the tip. The visor that was put in was made from a toys plastic clear cover, and overspray of black silver and grey. This really made it look movie quality and like a real serious replica like you would buy online.

ONLY setback was however cool it was i couldnt see well enough to where i trusted myself to walk through a convention so i had to change it :eek:hmy: :( but instead i found some plastic that is used for motorcycle helmets but was not bought at a bike shop but was in a raw sheet and i had to cut a rectangle and use a heat gun to carefully bend it into place. Thank you Mr. ganchou Bowsher high. This looks just as cool if not better cause u cant see in but i can see out PERFECTLY. :)

Hot glue was used to seal in place.

P.S. i do not like the panthers, this is my brothers room,i like the buccaneers, and also i kno this is a shot where the blades are not complete and the visor is still silver.


Med pack

I have only one shot of this and i includes my home made plasma caster and arm. Enjoy:)

Most impressive. Especially the paint job on the bio. If you can do this kind of work now that you are 16, imagine what you will do when you will be 26+. It's not a matter of age, only skills and experience. Kudos, my friend.

Excellent work -

for age 16 thats awesome - and even if you had more years under your belt - its still a great job. I remember how limited I was in budget when I was young and making stuff.

I hope you tackle a predsuit project with some skin detail to go with your great gear there.

Thats a really respectable body of work.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your labor and assembled completion

Yea budget is a hard competitor but im willing to work hard to overcome it, im hopping to make it look good enough to walk with the clan in a convention with bovine hdogg and elderpred and not have it look like its from goodwill. thanks for the encoruragement
