I can't believe how much these pics look like leaked "behind the scenes" shots.

Holy cow.

Re: Spidey4fun's TDK Build Log.


Milled the part today... It's not much to see really. I also milled it to fill the gap so it's a little wider then the movie suit peice but that's probably due to the width of my hips.... I must have a fatter arse then Bale... Now I just need to glue it down. emoticon

Brad

Did you work from the feet up or the waist down with putting the armor on and does it help having boots to figure out were the knees need to be?

I'm still very apprehensive about starting this.

Hey Brad, have you added a zipper to the front of this suit? I noticed the attachement going in between the legs from the crotch to the back of the belt. Great idea.

The final piece really does complete the look. Great job.

Re: Spidey4fun's TDK Build Log.


Hey Tony, First thing I'd recommend is to make a mannequin of yourself. Get some cloth tape, the type with no stretch and get your wife or whoever to tape you up. I used cling wrap first so the tape wasnt directly stuck to my skin. Once your all taped up carefully get cut out and re-tape the cut section. Stuff it with foam / paper/ whatever and then you'll have a perfect size and cheap mannequin to work with... oh.. stand with your knees slightly bent and legs slightly apart.

Put on your undersuit and belt next and mark in chalk where your knee caps are, the base of your butt, back of your knees and underside of the belt to give other referrence points.

Then put your suit on your mannequin and hang it from above using the internal strapping to suspend.

From here get a lot of rubber bands and start placing the armour. Once your happy with the armour placement.... start gluing.

I tried to use a bought mannequin but it just wasnt the right shape.... as seen below.

Hey Greg, these pics show the Cod zipper on the factory made mannequin that would have been very difficult to work with as the legs were too close together and too skinny.

Hey Brad.

Great advice on the home-made mannequin. I've heard that before, but wasn't sure how it'd work.

I'll be attempting to mount some begins armor in the coming months, and am trying to piece together as much advice as I can.

Do you have a glue suggestion for mounting urethane to neoprene ??

i know many people use a superglue gel. I'm trying to stay away from that if possible because it dries brittle, and tends to encourage tearing in the neoprene. I also hear urebond would be the perfect stuff, but is pricey, and takes an hour to cure. I think that might be the route for me especially if I have a tape mannequin to mount on.

Any thoughts ??

Sorry bout the hijack :hijack:

Hey leiter22

Im trying seam grip and ure bond the seam grip takes awhile to dry i might also try the aqua seal.

Ure bond is from smooth on and really works pretty fast and dries fast you got to mix little amounts.

Thanks Brad

I did put my cod piece on I used velcro 7" zipper underneath I also decided that I didn't want my top zipper in the back so I put it in the front.

Getting closer. I've put the suit back on my other mannequin which is a little short and skinny but self standing. I'm going to make an internal wooden frame for the tape mannequine so it can hold the weight.
