Shadow Scout WIP...


Recommended Posts

Well, thanks to an awesome hookup from Izzi, I'm starting my Shadow Scout. The "big brown box" arrived today, so let the fun begin! This thread will log my work in progress on this new costume. :)

I just got my webbing from Jontay.com (black cotton in 2" for the belt and 1.5" for the belt boxes). Pretty much following how I put my biker scout together but doing things a bit better with this one. I've also replaced the snout with an accurate DJ snout and built a riser plate. I'll post up some pics this weekend.

let me know if you find a source for the 1 3/8" elastic.

 

Will do...I've found a few places that sell 3.5 CM elastic, but they are in China and require a bulk purchase, like 10 yards or more. Yikes. Maybe I could buy up a role of this and make it available to BSN and Spec Ops scouts?! ;)

Now you're talking. Or, you could make a black elastic hammock!

Okay, okay...you got me Chef. ;)

 

It's been a bit slow going since I have a dislocated L shoulder at the moment. But, here's where I am at:

 

1. Replaced the SC snout with a DJ snout and built a riser plate.

2. Glued the belt parts in place.

4. Sanded the SC helmet seam in the back; will end up painting the bucket gloss black. That's coming next...

I've also received my cotton webbing and have my TD bits on order through DJ. My decals are on the way from TB, so I'll be working on the belt assembly this weekend. It's raining now so no painting today... :(

7. Next, I worked on the chest/back and tank. The tank was already attached, so I just worked on the black webbing connections and attaching the tank topper. I still need to cover the chest/back joins with 2" cotton webbing, add the tank stripes, and finalize the fit.
