Hitman's RMQ Build

Recommended Posts

This has been 4 months of work in the making with a very hard deadline of April 24th to have it complete. As of now we are working on this every 2 weeks so far.

 

We all know how the armor is supposed to look, but here is what 6 of us in Illinois are going for:

Yea I know the concept TD but I don't plan on really dirtying it up.

 

Now to the blaster, we are using a British STEN airsoft rifle:

That photo has the barrel shield cut down half way, which right now I do not plan on doing. We are using the current E11 scope for the blaster with a mod on the color of resin used to make it, clear with a coat of paint on the outside. We are also making custom mounts for the scope as well.

 

Ok for the part everyone wants to see, the brown box of plastic. It is suit #10 in the first series of suits KWD molded.

So far for the last 2 months all I was able to do was trim out all the parts:

Now this past Sunday (3/16) I finally got to the spot of fitting and gluing all the parts together. Some of the parts we were able to fit with just butt joints as I am a bigger guy. My thighs on the other hand I had to add almost 2 inches to fit properly.

My thighs:

As you see I had to add to it to fit. I am not leaving that big gap there to just be filled by bondo, I glued an additional piece of plastic on the outside to get it flush and provide strength. I will still use bondo on the seams of the arms and legs, to make it seamless. On all the pieces I did add a cover strip on the inside to reinforce the seams.

 

Now off to bondo the parts...

calf sanded (bottom):

And one thigh (bottom, both sides):

Once I get the bulk of the microlight sanded down on the bicepts & other calf/thigh/forarm pieces I will fine sand it to prep for paint

I cannot wait till it is done. I do plan on sanding the other pieces to take off any sharp edges sometime next week (monday or tuesday). The only thing that really worries me is if we will have the helmets molded and built in time,.

Over the last 2 days I managed to get the arms and legs painted!!

In the next few days I plan on painting the cod and shoulder bells along with painting the back, side pieces & belt boxes. Due to my size I have to wait on painting the chest, abs & kidney pieces till I get it fitted with shims and bondoed.

The paint I used was the rust-oleum ultra touch 2x semi-gloss. I accidentally grabbed the semi-gloss by mistake, but looking at it it still had a bit of that shine but at the same time it looks like it has been in the elements a bit.

Got more parts painted today!  The shoulders, outer belt boxes, and the thermo cylinder with cover.

I also got the inner thermo caps painted and the back cutouts painted gray:

The other parts that I worked on was gluing the neck ring to the chest and the connector plates glued to the back:

It's looking good!!!

You will want to trim down the thickness (return edge) on the side connection plate that you glued to the back. This will make it fit better and be WAY more comfortable.

Like this...

Thanks Kevin. I will be doing that next week once I get shims added (due to me being fat) to my chest. I know I may end up trimming the opening for my arms a bit more once the shims are in place.

Got some more work done over the last few days.

 

I have all but the chest/neck, abs, & kidney armor painted. The back I finally have the cutouts in and the red triangle painted:

I also built the thermo detonator:

CEB77357-EA88-400F-83CB-E7C3E11DA646_zps

 

For the thermo instead of using eyelets and elastic, I got a threaded rod cut to length and bolted to each end.

 

I also have the 2 belt boxes that had additional stuff on them done. 

 

The side right box with the zerk (grease fitting) for the laser sword:

and the front right box with the gray cutouts painted:

Over the last week a ton of stuff was done, with more to go this week for the reveal this weekend. When I get the chance tomorrow I will take some pics and post them.

 

I can say I did have to add shims to the kidney/abs plate and the chest to back connection as I am a rather big/large guy but I am not letting that be an issue to hold me back.

Awesome :smiley-sw013:

 

 

Sweet build!

 

 

Thanks guys..

 

Just a bit of an update, I got new biceps in to correct the mistake I made with putting them together the wrong way & I got my hands on a SGB v1 RMQ helmet. This would be helmet # 2 for it and soon I will have a 3rd helmet.

I would love to see side by side bucket pics when you get them done.

I should have side by side pics next week. So far each one of us has 2 helmets. We sculpted our own version, I have the SGB V1, & the other guys have the KWDesigns as their second helmet. I will do my best to get all 3 together.
