Also, Dreddy, the repainting of this pistol is apparently not as unique as previously believed. I don't recall what spurred it on, but I was looking for a replica of Deckard's blaster in Blade Runner and stumbled across another repainting of the same Nerf model. Also saw a photo of a chick cosplaying as Jack from Mass Effect 2, and she was holding a repainted one, too.

When did I claim it's unique? Of course I get inspiration off the net. That's what the net is for.

I didn't need the net to decide to paint it though. I just enjoy painting things. Be it models, toys, household objects, canvas or other crap. It's good fun.

Obv. use good paint and brushes, and look after them well. I can't stress this enough.
Learn dry brushing.
Overdo it! Painting models is all about making them TOO realistic. Due to their size a lot of detail needs to be accentuated with a brighter shade of whatever color you're using. Same goes for shading. Start with a darker tone and drybrush your way up to a lighter tone.

Paint some junk to try around. Be it old/cheap action figurines, toys, scraps.

BE PATIENT. When you lose the mood to paint, stop. Never let it become a chore.

I was planning on holding this back until I had bought it, but it's official; I talked with the guy who made it, and will be purchasing the full package, sans chestpiece--


--for $300. Am considering buying a cheap voice morpher, taking it apart, and getting help from an EE major pal on reprogramming it to sound deep/electronic/Vader. The mouthpiece is essentially a hollow basin with plenty of room for the morpher I found last night.
Will sand then paint before attaching anything. Also will heed your suggestions/instructions as well as those of the tutorials I found.

May follow up and buy one of the replicas of Deckard's blaster for good measure, and a shoulder holster to put it in, but that's an entire venture away.

I thought you were getting old-school Enclave armor?

That's a way, way future project. The same guy who I want to help me with the voice changer talked me into the future possibility of making a custom set of Enclave Power Armor, when we were discussing his Iron Man WIP. The Iron Man suit is actual metal and ceramics, and is 200+ pounds, necessitating a system of servos he's still perfecting that will assist him in the burden. That's right-- he's made real life fucking power armor because he plans on making a damn-near real suit of Iron Man armor. The helmet, as well, will have two cameras hidden in the eyes of the helmet, and two miniature screens to be placed right in front of his eyes. It's the real deal.

This T-51b is a much more realizable, cost-efficient endeavor for the short term. And all I want is the helmet, for now.

I don't know, Manny. It looks like you're paying $300 for some paper mache with some cables and vacuum cleaner hoses glued to it.

Then again, I'm the guy who plans on getting a Brotherhood of Steel tattoo on my right arm, so maybe I'm not the one to criticize.

Neat. Whatever you do, don't airbrush. Airbrushing is for swell guy, or for very skilled people that know when to use it correctly. Most people don't.

Also, maybe think about installing one or two computer fans somewhere if there's room, so you don't choke in that motherfucker.

I don't think 300 bucks is a justified price. Especially when considering that it has a lot of crooked looking lines and edges.

It's a ceramic casting from a mold. He had one cheaper but the bottom wasn't reinforced and I'm really not in a position to do anything with it to fix that.

"I can cast one up for you. Usual price for a full kit is $300 shipped in the US. This includes a raw helmet cast, cast greeblies, WWII Russian gas mask primary hoses, acrylic tubing and ribbon wrap for the secondary hoses, metal eye hooks, black anti-flash welding visor (same used in a Fett helmet), and some basic rangefinder parts.

On my original master the slots are open on all the vents. On the cast, you have to cut them open yourself with a Dremel."



Maybe in the future, I'll do the whole set, but I don't mind having it as a trophy-type of wall mount/etc to brag about or remind me how FUCKING AWESOME I AM

I've also seen an assload of casts for pipboy 3000s that can hold iPod Touches, but if I were to go through with something like that, I'd more likely follow with the pipboy 2000 presented on that russian website, and maybe put mini led strips in the lamps on it, beast that shit out son

seriously though I need to get money for all this before I get carried away

Well it's the best Fallout fan art I've seen so far in any case.

Saw that, and despite the misdirected douchery, it's actually pretty impressive. Imagine if the T-45d was in FO3 to a canon degree; wouldn't seeing this be kewl?

T-45d armor was actually first seen in a Fallout game in the Van Buren Tech Demo, because the soldier who escorts you to the Vault is wearing a suit. Looked almost exactly like that minus the decals because of old technological limitations, though. That said Bethesda still couldn't make anything up on their own.
