    Looks great. Do you have a fan in it to help circulate the air?

    Thanks, I'm glad you guys like it. It is made of polyester resin, backed with glass, a nice tight 2 layers, no fan yet, working out the bugs, fogging is an issue, breathing not so much, it is quite easy to breath in this mask. it wraps around your head like a real gas mask over the ears, the helmet is a seprate piece. I made 1 other for a friend who has a larger head, so I threw it in the oven for about 15 min @ 180 degrees Farenheight. and took it out and flared it out to fit his skull and then cooled it with water, BAM!!! fits like a glove. so it really diddnt effect the way it fit with the helmet with the adjustment to the mask.

    the mask and helmet are tapped of polyester resin and fiberglass, very thin, very strong and light weight, the range finder and camera are cast of acrylic. Antenna, filters, chin greebles-2prt plastic. it is a nice kit to put together. not hard to assemble, easy to paint, lots of room to custom out to personal taste.

    The paint job makes it look like actual rubber.

    when I sculpted it I added alot of texture, I wanted it to feel like a gas mask, it would be nice to run them of rubber, I would just have to core out the mold, I thought about it, maybe for the future...

    This is a job well done. I'm on my second play through of New Vegas right now, and I'm really tempted to just raid Camp Golf for this stuff....

    If you ever start a run on this, let me know!

    I am gearing up for steel city con, I will have some kits to let go, I have to figure out a assembly manual for the kit, I think it is pretty simple to assemble but I think it would be cool to put together some thing neat and fun to read while putting the thing together. I will abide by the rules of this site, I am new here, but like i said, I am gearing up for a con, an idea for a run count would be nice.

    Thank you, I got the coat like 11 years ago at a thrift store, my daughter has been wearing it at cons as a waste land trader, and i got to lookin at it again and was like... uh yea.....gonna reclaim this for the ranger sweetie... She was stoked! She is the one who got on me to sculpt this thing.

    Definitely looks like your daughter knows what she's talking about and has great taste too. Keep up the great work (both of you)...

    I think I could do a fan in the filter on the side of the mask, this first one was the prototype.

    I would love to log the whole process and put it up for you guys, I am gearing up for a run and I have to have an assembly guide for future Rangers in my kits. so this is my first thread here, should it be a different thread all together or continue this one??? I welcome all input on this...

    This looks fantastic! Really really impressive for such a short time-scale build especially.
    I know you've said fogging is a problem (which I'm praying a fan will solve in mine, heh), but is having other people hear you a problem?

    Hey Red Lion!

    Ive been putting together one of your kits and just thought I'd throw some pics up. Ive been trying to get the lenses to glow... anyone have any tips or ideas on that?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Heres a pic after some of the wiring and LEDs were in. I also put a fan in the side.
    [​IMG]
    Heres a pic with the lenses in. Not glowing like i wanted... still messing with that... more pics to come!

    Great kit though! I love it!

    Oh my god, thanks you for doing a play-by-play build....I would love to make something like this! And the finished product looks AMAZING!!

    Between the helm, the breastplate, and that SWEET jacket, this might be the best Fallout cosplay I've seen. I hope I run into you and your daughter sometime, you guys have GREAT taste!!
