Almost done! I was up till 3am last night putting the paint on, and I have some things I want to touch up before adding the hinge/magnet, and padding to the inside. I was supposed to do that today, but I woke up 5 minutes before curfew in Egypt and watched the protests on Aljazeera English all morning instead.
What did you use for the pip boy status, data, and items buttons?
LED covers. I forgot where I got them, but you can buy them online.
This is so cool I love fallout!
Man, that's looking awesome Chris! You gotta let me get my hands on a copy if you can!
I wore it last night to Madison's Fire Ball III ( [link] ) and it held up well. I spent another 8 hours touching up paint, and adding a hinge, magnet, and light, so that's definitely work I'm not going to do again. I have a bunch of friends who want Pipboys, so I'll probably just make the top and bottom halves and let people do the paint/assembly so I'm not spending an extra 20+ hours on each one.
