http://simulaids.com/index.htm this website has "simulaids", which are used for medical and rescue purposes. some of them are less than $1000.
http://www.indymogul.com/backyard-fx/episode/BFX_20070917 has great step by step instructions for one made out of newspaper and duct tape. It may be lifelike and quick, but not robust.
On that video clip they said you had to get clothes for molding the duct tape around the body.
A more effective way is to use a tyvek suit its way cheaper and you can take it off in one piece. ( just don't cover the zipper )
you can buy these at http://www2.dupont.com/NOWApp/DPPRequestGateway/0/5/?command=VCProductFamilyIntro&prod=1032
i just bought 1 off of ebay
     ONLY  15 DOLLARS
(   also made one out of steel tubing and lathed and carved wood )

When the Mythbusters rebuilt buster, they made alluminium frames that hold wood which replicated bones. The flesh was made from some kind of rubber, similar softens as a humans body.
the rubber is called ballistic
its called dragon skin actually..................
Yea
wouldnt it be easier to just use ballistics gel? if it gets "buster'd up" too bad you can just put that part back in its original mold and reheat it
Well, ballistic gel needs to be kept cool, othervise it would fall apart, 'melt'.
