Damn, man, that's a shame.
Sue the guy.
Ouch, I was excited to see how this turned out. I would reply in the thread too as it's something precautionary that other potential buyers should know.
Entrance of the Vault 12 was engineered right the same way. I smell Vault-Tec behind that!
Good news, I mailed the guy pics and he said he'd send me replacement parts free of charge. That's a lot more than I was expecting. It won't be in time for Halloween but I'll have to make do.
Not the best pictures but here's what it looks like so far. It's missing a few details but I didn't have time to really finish it before Halloween. The guy is also sending me replacement parts, so these won't be the final pieces anyway:
Partnered with my 10mm pistol (Well, it doesn't really look that much like one):
Looking nice! However,is......that Galaxy News Radio I see ?
Yup, haha... plays it and everything.
Looks awesome. 10mm also, I really love that one. You should post how you made that one too.
About PipBoy - inside wiring isn't a problem when you fit it on your arm (I mean, when you fit it, I get it).
I've seen plenty of good replicas, but most had a problem with inside wiring sticking out everywhere.
What will you do with these items beside the halloween costumes?
Also, why has it to be the retarded Pipboy 3000 instead of the proper one? :/
Pretty much I just bought a Nerf Maverick (http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/warfare/943c/) from Wal-Mart and spray painted it black. Then I did some dry brushing with "chainmail silver" Warhammer paint that I picked up at a hobby shop. The gun was my first attempt at doing something like that. Can find the paints I used here...
Other than the painting I sanded some of the logos off and also modified it so the barrel would come out further and 'spin' for Russian roulette. Some modding videos on YouTube.
The pipboy used the same base black and then some green camouflage paint:
Then dry brushing with the chainmail silver model paint.
No wiring here but I'm just using an iPod touch and don't have any of the lights installed.
Probably continue to improve my costume over consecutive Halloweens and likely wear them to PAX East. Playa don't hate.
Because Fallout 3 is my favourite from the series :-p
Because nobody is quite sure how the rest of the PIPboy 2000 Plus looks, only that it is wrist-worn.
Interesting is that no one has ever tried making some sort of PipBoy2000 replica, using information they have and their imagination...
I haven't seen any at least.
If you think about it, a post-apocalyptic Pipboy might look kinda janked up and be held together by shoelaces. They aren't exactly making more of those in the year 2281.
You made that?
