Hello fellow heavy gunners!

Here's where I will park my references and research for my Baze Malbus build.

I'll post work on each major component separately, so I can keep specific parts together for reference.

Being an artist, sculptor, costumer... I don't have the resources to fabricate things from scratch. I don't free-sculpt, I don't do CAD. That's why I pride my abilities to "kit-bash". I'm always looking for everyday found objects that can be cut up, combined, rotated, turned inside out, etc. and used as something else. A single item may not be perfect as-is, but part of it might have the right shape, and I "extract" that part out of it to use.

If I'm lucky, we have identified the actual part used for something, and I can track down and acquire it for my own build. In this thread I will also document my quest to find bits and bobs that are close enough in shape to use as a starting point, to transform them into the desired shape/silhouette. In posting my resources I hope it can help someone with their own costume. Smile

Baze Malbus backpack-carried cooling power cell.

I compared the shape (and size) to various food service tubs, water tanks, water coolers, water bottles, propane tanks, liquid nitrogen tanks, etc.

Most were asymmetrical, with a flatter bottom and a more conical top. None just felt right.











I've determined the red part of the tank is a 5-gallon air tank.

Firstly, the top and bottom are the same shape (on the "hot dog" style air tanks). Secondly, it's the correct size... and it has the right proportion. Looking at how it fits (partially) in the ALICE pack frame, and how much of his back it "occupies", it just feels like it's what they used.





















Grind the weld seams down, etc. and make the silver bracket parts. Wink

That's a great collection of images. I didn't know this area existed. Embarassed

Are there any discussion threads for the costume? That's why I started this, to put the descriptive text together.

It's very common for props that are "scratch built" to use kit-bash parts that are close in size and shape as a starting point. Saves time and most people won't recognize it after greeblies have been added, painted and weathered.

It's pretty amazing that somewhere along the way someone saw this on display somewhere, and remembered it to be used as inspiration for a movie piece! Very Happy

I still believe the air tank is the correct size and shape, so that's what I'll be using as my starting point.

Hey David, are you still interested in this build? I see you've contributed a lot of research to the costume, so you deserve to finally troop in it someday!
