Ducktapemanequin for armour display

Recommended Posts

I have build a cheap mannequin with ducktape yesterday for display my armour, inspired by a garrison mate.

Many other people have made this, so it's nothing new but I think it looks cool and give somebody of you a boost to build you a own.

So here we go...

I had to buy some 40mm plastic plumping pipes, 4 t-pieces and some bends.

a bit ducktape, cheap pillows and a papersuit for paintjobs.

2  metal 1/2" pipes and 2 pieces to screw in the pipes and screw them onto a plank(I don't know the name, sorry)

Also needed a pair of extra shoes and gloves.

First I dressed up with the papersuit and my wife wrapped me with ducktape.

She doesn't exploited the situation and so I am still alive ;)

After I was wrapped she cut me out of the ducktapesuit.

I build a skeleton like in this sketch,

The knees I have build with 15°bend and in the high of the waist are 2 T-pieces and in them sticks anotger 15°Bend.so it all looks a bit more alive.

I have put the skeleton into the ducktape skin and close it bit for bit and put in the pillow filling.

The pipes are screwed with the two pieces (don't know the name) on a Plank and the iron pipes sticks into the plastic pipes of the mannequin.

I hope you like it a bit and get inspired to build your own mannequin. I am not good in all this sandtrooper knowledge, so that's my way to take part in your community :)

PS:

I need a extra pair of shoes because I must drill a big hole into them to stick it also on the metal pipes.

The gloves will filled with some foam and then given a shape to hold the weapon (only simulate, the weapon will be hold by a wire to the forearm-pipes.

That's actually a really good idea!

I might give it a try and use pur foam to fill the body.

Thanks for sharing :duim:

Lucky you got cut out! Could've been awkward...

love the idea though. Much more personal than a standard mannequin. Well done!
