VF-1S head unit

Recommended Posts

Well after the Lancer 11 was printing well I thought I'd have a crack at something else.

I always thought it would be rad to have a VF-1S helmet that I can wear, so a couple (read lots) of hours later ... Bamm...

The lasers will rotate together so I can roll them down and go pew pew. :)

First part off the print.

Funny, I don't watch tv or go to the movies or even read about the movies.

Didn't know it as made..

Don't know about the figures yet, still on the fence about it.. 

One laser down, 6 pieces to build and key together. 

And top rhs on head done ..

It will also look cool sitting on your coffee table or bookshelf (with the lasers forward of course). - MT

The ultimate goal would be to have the lasers move on a servo motor or something, that is well beyond me though..

I don't think it would last long on a coffee table at my house, I've got a 2 year old boy who's into everything and a 3.5 year old who shows the youngest how to get into everything haha .. it'll sit on a shelf :)

Stuffed up some printer settings but it came out good enough.

Now the stress is I might not have made it big enough for my head.

I reckon another 5mm wider is needed.. I might have to make a strip for down the centre or the kids are going to have a cool toy ..

I'd go about 8mm and include some sort of thin padding. JMO.

I have ears, they will work as padding.. won't they? 

Once I finish all the main parts I'll tape it up and see.

is there anyone here good with electronics that you can point me to for help with servos and drivers?

Ha, a full suit is not the plan but would be awesome... I don't think I'm flexible enough to do the different modes though.

It is a bit tight so I think I'll make a centre strip to widen it .. kids are fine, fits my wife good, I just didn't give my head enough clearance..
