Life size ED 209 from robocop 1987 Answered

Picture of

Hi all, so I have decided to build a life sized ED 209, the killer robot from the film Robocop (1987), 

for a long time I have been toying with the Idea of making a life sized ED 209 and recently Make had an article on Shaun Thornson who made a life sized ED which has inspired me to go for it, so far I am about 50% done on making the first set of master moulds.

if you can help at all, even by sharing this on facebook it would help, here is the facebook page for progress

but you have to go on the page when you get home and like it to keep up to date.

It's a school - sometimes, depending what topics are showing, even the forums here get blocked (those K'Nexers have a lot to answer for...)

I have attached some pics here of the master moulds most painted in primer they need their prototype colour to make them gloss and red. these moulds will be used to make fibre glass moulds so I can make fibre glass copies so they are lightweight and hard wearing.

I have also included a graphical representation of progress the green parts show what master moulds have been made so far and what's outstanding.
