15th February 2012: redoing of armor after spending nearly 2 months measuring photo's and ref pictures and drawing a scale model of every armor peice . i am nearly finished sculpting all panels .....might even have time to redo the chest ..was happy with the old one but new will be more accurate and a hell of a lot lighter :-)

15th February 2012: gadgets all gadgets have been tested to near destruction , robotic hand , mini turbines , motorised arms , cooling fans , lights , and sounds all working ....woohoo lol

18th September 2011: eva weapon finished build of the starcraft gauze rifle now onto the rest of the eva building ....the armor , well the armor that hasn't already been built from fibreglass that is :-)

18th August 2011: hight issues being as this costume is 8ft tall when finished i have given myself a helping hand via a set of plasterers stilts ....once again ebay to the rescue lol (55 pounds) should add 20 inches to my height

18th August 2011: projector the solution i found for the projected heads up display on the costume has been found by hooking up a mini projector (85 pound) to my phone and looping a cinematic scene from starcraft

18th August 2011: fibreglassing all armour peices ( minus mid section ) are all well on their way ..so far 150 pound spent on fibreglass and bodyfiller hehe , damn this thing is huge :-P
