Starship Trooper Powered Suit




Over on the SFMUK site - http://scifimodels.org.uk/phpWebsite/index.php - a contest has just begun.

Namely, build a MAK (or Nitto) Polar Bear armoured suit anyway folk like.

So i'm in it and have plans to convert mine to the Powered Suits seen in Starship Troopers novel.

Here you go with what you get in the box, what it looks like built from the box and how i'm NOT going to have it.

My favourite book Starship Troopers, pity we never got to see the armour in the film. I know Starship Troopers 3 is out this year but I imagine it's straight to DVD so I doubt they'll have the sort of FX budget to do the armour in that film either !!

They had the suits (sort of) in the crimingly overlooked CGI TV show.
It was ok, but not the "Steel Gorilla" of the novel.

I know the book of The Making of Starship Troopers has a concept sketch for a very bulky power armour suit and the drop pods !! I could scan it in if you haven't all ready seen it.
