Hi guys!

I've been inactive for some time, and so here is my new project i've worked on it.
For everybody that played Fallout: New Vegas, this is the Actual In-game Ranger Combat Armor.
Sorry if this is just a slideshow, i don't have that much WIP pictures (work in progress), but if you guys want that i do a tutorial, feel free to ask and i will do my possible!

I used the following things to do it:

For the helmet: - M1 helmet liner (old us army)
                            - Cardboard
                            - Fiberglass resin ( fiberglass cloth to reinforce the inside)
                            - Bodyfiller (Bondo)
                            - Gray and White Spray Paint
                            - Red Duotang for lenses, rubber pipe, 90 degree metal elbow

For the Armor: - EVA Foam ( Children mat that you can put together by pieces)
                           -  Gray paint ( if your foam is gray, no need)
                           - White Paint (for the decals)
                           - For the straps to attach it to you, use a belt, 2 elastic straps and 2 belt buckles (Look at the pictures)
                           - 2 belts

For the arms pads: - small foam pieces
                                    - some tape to attach it ( or anything else)

For the coat: - A brown Cowboy style duster ( or use a pattern like i did)
                       - White paint for decals

Also, i used that pepakura file made by Hugh to do the helmet: http://www.mediafire.com/?f3rldmn2bhfznr7

If any of you have a question, feel free to ask in the comment section and i will try my best to answer it!

Thank you!

Can you post the pattern for the duster or a link to where you got it? I made one out of woodland bdu uniforms but would like to make a leather one
theREALcybercat (author)  Ezio881 year ago
I don't know if i have it still, it's not a link cause i did it by myself.
Anyway, iff i find it, ill post it here.
Thanks for your comment!

Here's a tutorial. It's on a forum, so you'll have to wade through some useless posts, but extreamly informative, overall.

on the modle of pepkura did you have to make it bigger for yout head cuase i have a big head so i want to know
theREALcybercat (author)  kplatt2 years ago
i have a small head and i didn't needed to make it bigger, there was even space in. I'm almost sure it would work for any size.
Thanks for asking and sorry for the delay !
