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.

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'.

most crash test dummies are usually around $10,000- $20,000. The how its made show isnt how-to. It is how the pros make them.

 Hmm....There's already an 'Ible for ballistics gel. The only other thing needed is a "frame".

We could just take one of those art models and carve it into a posable buster.

apport ideas!

apport is the transference of an article from an unknown source, to you, or another place by unknown means.

How are we supposed to do that?

If someone has an idea it would be easiest to consult via PM and to add them as a collaborator, maybe they can help with your english.

1. Sorry for my english i am fro argentina. 2. The basic idea is to make a mini-buster, a little replica of buster so you an have him in your desktop and using him for testing mini-rocket chairs, mini-explosive toilets, trowhing him etc. 3. Megapun, i like the idea of an instucto bot, but that shouldn't go here, i want to make a buster replica 4. Deadlysurfer, i like your idea, but i would want it a liitle more "solid" and where the hell are we going to ger ballistic gel? only FBI (Federal Bunch of Idiots) heve it, and the mytbusters get it cuz they are big friends of FBI. 5. kiteman, it is a collab, so we post ideas vith author or anonymously I hope this solves most questions so we can start the collab

if you want to make some homemade ballistics gel them all you have to do is buy 2 boxes of KNOX gelatine from the grocery store for 8 bucks each get more depending on the size of your dummy then adding the amount of of cold water directed and letting it cool overnight then boil it until it reaches 125 degrees (just make shure it doesnt go any higher than 130) then take it out of your mold make shure to use plastic and PAM cooking spray for easiest removal.

Buster is the name of the crash test dummy they use on Mythbusters for a lot of their dangerous stuff. :)
