You deserve a cameo in the Avengers movie. Can we start an Internet petition to make that happen?

Or at least a line, "Have you heard about that guy in Australia who's building a copy of your suit?"

I agree,but I'm waiting to find out when Bazza is going to start mass producing the suit's.


Photography was my second choice for a hobby.
Water skiing was my first,but I couldn't find a lake with a slope.

He might be. But this is about as mass produced as he can get. :)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Just posting on this forum means it's already AMASS.

Onya POTNers. Who needs and agent when I have you mob? LOL!

Today's update:

I just bought this 40mm silent fan from Jaycar, so it was
more prototyping today with cardboard to design a mounting bracket for it. It took a couple of goes, but cardboard is free.

Next I traced it onto metal, marked and centre punched all the holes and tapped the four in the middle with a 4mm tap. I have a jar of screws left from dismantling an old computer and most of them are 4mm. Perfect for this sort of stuff.

Next was to mark and stitch drill the intake hole, then file and sand it all smooth.

The end result is quite neat.

And it screws straight into the two drilled and tapped tabs I welded in earlier.

This thread makes me smile. I admire your dedication, and can't wait to see the finished suit.


Cheers, Damien

Thank you!

Update:

Had a bit of a solder session and tidied up all the batteries and wiring. I'm just using AAA and AA for now, but will eventually change to LiPo once I advance it all a bit.

another champion update Bazza! - I recognise all but the yellow & black thingy in the first pic, what's that?


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

It was a LED work lamp. (torch). The illuminating strip is now in the helmet.

Spring loaded the flight control flaps behind the foot. Now they hug the back of my heel and move with it as my foot pivots instead of just flapping around.

You wouldn't believe how much I get asked that. 35kg currently.

Update:

POR-15 total rust treatment of the inside of the suit. About three hours of work this afternoon with marine wash, metal prep and the final coat with sun and heat gun drying in between.

No, that's fine. I was aiming for a top of 40 so I'm still under. It's very comfortable.
