Thought I’d post up a couple of pictures from the test fitting of ‘er indoors Five Doctors suit which is about 85% done. We’re still missing the bullet racks and waiting on a Mooncrest kit for the gun.

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed that the chestpiece is unwearable as is. I’m not sure if it’s been constructed at too small as scale in general but the rear section curves too far inwards into the upper back for the front of the neck to sit in the correct place, even without the flight suit underneath. As a result the neck of the helmet can’t possibly sit inside the shoulders as seen onscreen, unless you have the ability to detach your head to put the lid on!
I’m thinking of cutting it in half to seperate the back and the front and either creating a material shim to allow more movement or adding a @two inch fibreglass section to extend the size of the shoulders between front and back.
