Fallout 3 T-45d Power Armor


One of the armor types you can pick up in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas is the T-45d power armor. It’s incredibly effective even though it does detract from the wearer’s mobility. DeviantArt user Agent–9, a.k.a. Ehren Hein, made a replica of the suit a few years ago. This photo doesn’t show all the details that Hein put into the model, but it still shows how cool the suit is. Hein explains a little about the design and build process:

This is based partially of the in game model and partially on the statue’s design. The reason the chest is so large is that it houses a 12″ sub woofer; the belt is higher, and the upper legs are shorter so I am actually able to sit in it. clipping was a big issue with the game model, so I had to change those things

It is composed of: a LOT of cardboard (from Aldi’s), over 100 sticks of hot glue, 22 egg cartons (egg carton paper mache- for strengthening the cardboard frame), light speckling (used to coat the egg carton paper mache to give texture, and smoothness where needed) 30 steel plates (cut from scrap that was salvaged from a microwave), speakers and sound board (garbage picked: 1 sub woofer, 2 tweeters, and 1 sound board), foam strip (For padding the shoulder harness, and legs/ arms), 13 bolts/ 27nuts (also salvaged), 2 “computer” fans (one for me, one for the sound board), and spray paint.

He spent just over three weeks constructing the suit.
