I made one from the diagrams on whitearmor.net and it seems to small for my hasbro blaster. I thought I'd try for something a little nicer than the one I made out of stuff I had in my basement. If I'm going to go for accuracy I'd like to know what would be accurate.
The extra trimming has me a little worried, but I'll give it a shot. There was a very big difference in lead time between the two. I'm hoping to have this done by early June and an extra 3-4 week delay could make that more difficult. I hope I don't regret going the faster route, althought I've heard that's the path to the dark side. My box should arrive on Friday (according to UPS).the dark knight wrote:not to rain on your party andy, but i did have a set of AM armor. im 6' 2" and it fit me like a glove. anyone shorter, and it will require alot of trimming. personaly i would have gone with ATA's new ABS armor that is far more accurate and sadly, still around 100 bucks less than AM and comes with the helmet. sorry i made it here too late to help you out.
I'm going to have to take some measurements of my Hasbro blaster. If it's too small I'll probably scratch build one that's a little closer to the right size. Since the blaster isn't part of the base requirements I'm pushing it out to "phase 2".Tyran wrote:Be sure to get a Droopy Doo's kit for the Hasbro blaster. I bought one and it works and looks great. I wasn't fortunate enough to get the kit after he added the the additional side rails, so thats one less thing you'll need:

If you're trooping in the summer I highly recommend getting a fan or two. I use the squirrel cage fans on whitearmor and love it:
I've got some leftover fans I was going to use in my clone helmet, but I didn't need them because the conversion hasbro helmet has very good ventilation. My experience with the MRCE helmet leads me to believe that it will need fans.
