General
Time Taken : 1 month

Description
Now that a newer version of HUNK has been released I decided it was time to updated mine. The BDU's have been replaced with a flightsuit, adding new pouches and gloves. As well as upgrading his firearms. Most complex part will be the inclusion of his new wrist blade.

Enjoyed this new varient, the flightsuit made wearing the costume easier. Will be worn again in future.

Journal

Blade Mounted (Posted 17th August 2011)

After another coat of paint the blade was mounted onto the rig and screwed on. The paint needs another few coats. Last min touch ups will be done at Aya.

Base Coat (Posted 15th August 2011)

Before being painted the silver colour prior to attachment to the rig, a base coat of black enamel paint was added.

Test Mounting (Posted 15th August 2011)

Test mounted the blade onto the wrist rig to see if it was the right size.

Blade Cut to Shape (Posted 15th August 2011)

Once the desired shape was achieved I then cut the wood to the approximate length it would need to be to fit on the blade mount.

Blade Started (Posted 15th August 2011)

Selecting a piece of pine that was around the correct width. I then carved and sanded it to achieve the bladed shape.

Wrist Blade Harness + Mechanism (Posted 15th August 2011)

Using 50mm webbing material as a base, a drawer slider was mounted and secured. Straps using 25mm webbing and buckle clips were added to help attach the rig to the users arm. The materials thickness made sewing the straps a challenge. Using a carpet needle and strong thread this problem was overcome.

Thigh Pouch/Rig (Posted 16th July 2011)

Using a Molle EMT Pouch and a donor holster, Alias very kindly was able to fabricate the thigh pouch HUNK now wears on his left leg.

MP9 (Posted 13th July 2011)

Purchased a KWA MP9 A3 Machine Pistol, added foregrip and PEQ to closer replicate HUNK's custom machine gun.
