Life size G1 style Ravage out of foam.

Postby familyman » Sat Mar 08, 2014 12:33 pm

Hi there, my name is Jamie and I like to build replica props out of foam anti fatigue mats. I have recently started a life size Ravage build. I would love to know what everyone thinks.

Thank you, This one is for display and to help me get the templates all correct, then I will be building a few more for sale.
As for other things I have built out of foam I have done a life size R2, Wall-e, proton pack, Flux capacitor, Horus headdress from StarGate SG-1, I am also working on an Ironman costume, Master Chief costume and K9 from Doctor Who the list goes on and on.
I have a facebook page here with lots of pictures, info and how to tips. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Foamtast ... 760?ref=hl

LOL< thank you very much.

Here is the latest. I have finished all four legs and feet, they need a little cleaning but that's nothing. All I need to do now is the tail, bottom jaw and underbelly. Then I need to build a base of some sort. I am going to supporting Ravage with a wooden poll (Eventually I will get a clear acrylic tube) the poll will be coming out around the middle of him and be fixed to a small flat wooden base, high enough that his feet will rest on the floor but not actually support him.



Here are all the pieces for the feet.

Image

And here is everything balanced together. I can not glue the feet to the legs or the legs to the body yet as they need to be painted.

Mind-blowing, jaw dropping, epic coolness! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:
Ravage is just amazing so far and with my also being a Star Wars fan, I'm also geeking out over your R2-D2 pic. You have quite an impressive talent there. I can't wait to see how Ravage looks with the final paint job and the display stand.

Well, the weather was a little windy but warm enough to finish the painting. I have just finished gluing him all together.
He is able to support his own weight, but I will be making a stand for him with a clear rod for support as over time the legs will start to bend.
