So, for the longest time I’ve wanted to build a modern Rock Viper. I already have most of the parts from other costumes. Below is my progress. I will do a complete breakdown when I am finished and satisfied.
I’m using A-TACS UA for the base camo (already have it for my Ruslan), skipping the backpack and using my H-harness and battle belt (from Snake Eyes), a USMC vest (surplus in coyote), my M88 helmet (Bazooka) among other things I’ve had laying around.
I drew up the template for the forearm armor using Inkscape. I will also post them up here when complete. I’ll more than likely be using ¼" EVA foam on top of floor mat EVA foam.
I made the right arm as a test, but it came out pretty good. It’ll look better when it’s finished. Just waiting on my 1" rectangle hardware, 1" elastic, and 1" nylon webbing, so I can attach it to my arm. Now to make a 2nd one. I’m also probably going to weather them, so they look a little beat up.
Made a left arm and test shoulder pad.
