    Sep 11, 2017, 1:50 PM - Alien EVA MK50 suit group build PIC HEAVY #1

    Me and my friend cody on here wanted to do the EVA suits from alien. so the research began. we found a ton of info in Ritch's and steve's thread on the suit they did in 09. tons of info in that thread. Can't thank them enough for the info they found and shared.,

    here is the link.
    https://www.therpf.com/showthread.ph...ronmental+suit


    Now we had a good start but some things we are still figuring out. we are scratch building the entire suit. we bought the model kits used for the greebs and will be lazer cutting parts also.

    we just started on the armor and pack. still waiting on the dome i ordered which is 16 inches in diameter and 8 inches deep. i will start the helmet once i get the done.


    the whole thing started out as drawings and going from there we started building parts.
    drawings like this.


    here are the gloves for kANE.


    here are the gloves and boots i picked up for dallas. the gloves are wrong so they could be used for someone else. boots are close.



    here are the model kits used for the helmet greebs and some of the parts. lots of parts in both kits. also from the mclaren kit some of the parts were used on the wrists parts. i bought a hood scoop for one of the greebs that is not in either kit. and there are some parts we cannot figure out.

    parts used from the space 1999 hawk kit.

    some of the parts used from the mclaren kit.




    here is the start of the pack. using 4 inch pipe. the knobs are 3d printed and the correct buttons ordered.


    here is the start of the chest and shoulder armor and greebs.



    still have long long way to go but this is our start. thanks for looking and if you have info you would like to share to help us with this build please do so.

    I've been working on some of the parts that we're unable to identify by modeling them up in fusion360 and printing them out. Here's some of the things i've gotten so far. If anyone can identify the realworld parts please let us know.

    Very cool.

    UPDATE>
    Shoulder armor, chest armor and pack are progressing. Hope to post pics soon. The dome finally got here. Will start the helmet once the pack, shoulder and chest armor are ready to mold.

    Found parts update.

    Stomach box on the side are two rocket thusters from the space 1999 hawk kit. One is cut down. But the parts match. The lower circle part looks like and old gas cap with a radiator relief lever added. they used a scrap cross bar from the kit for the T shape. this pic is from the prop store kane suit which has replica parts. you can tell the difference with the paint job.



    The hose coming from the pack to the helmet. Looks like a Russian gas mask hose. At least that is what Adam savage looks to have used for his. The measurements look right.

    thanks!

    here is an update to the pack and shoulder armor.
    the parts are just tacked on to see how everything is fitting together. i used a russian gas mask hose for the hose and used the fitting to connect it. alittle brass ring on the hose and it should look legit. now a ton of sanding and making holes for toggles and lights.


    top of the pack. the knobs are not the final knobs.


    here is the shoulder armor got to mold the rivet greeb so i can make multiples. but got the main drain greeb in and trim on.

    I’ve gotten some detail work done for the shoulders and backpack that Tom is working on now. I’ve also got some stencils for brass etching the name plates. Still much more to go!

    thanks guys, bunch of work getting done on me and coozco ends.

    i am close to finishing the shoulder, pack and chest armor. coozco sent me the parts he made for some of the details. and i have started the dreaded helmet. hope to have some WIP pics of that soon.

    here is the pack, still have to drill holes for panel lights and pressure gauge. and add trim to the bottom left detail. then a good final sanding and make sure everything is nice and smooth.


    bottom details.

    top detail.

    lights!! the correct size!! still need to drill holes and line up correctly.
