They're Random, Baby!

Trevor Chesler's Mjolnir Armor

In September, 2006, Trevor Chesler sent along the first of a series of pictures of some armor he's putting together - if we get more, they'll be added to this page. In his own words:

The materials I am planning on using are as follows.


  • Goop- Plenty of it.
  • Foam Board
  • Mat Board
  • Bondo Resin
  • Plasti Resin
  • Molds
  • Filler
  • Textured Professional Paint- I may bring in an expert for this.
  • Neoprene  (for the Joints)

Under Armor

  • Wet Suit with modifications
  • Foam


    • LED Lights
    • Voice Box
    • A few Surprises


    • Sword -Technology here will be advanced use of existing commercail items.  I WILL GLOW.
    • SMG
  • Sounds great!

    FLEX PASTE: I have used this material before and has proven to be very useful. In order to get the angles and curves out, I use a few layers of the flex paste. Once this stuff is dry I can then begin sanding away until I get the general shape. If you sand too much another layer of this flex paste will correct the mistake. I am currently in the sanding phase and using some pretty heavy grit sand paper. Once I am done with general shape I will use a dremel to get into the detailing.

    HEAD PIECE: I tried this on because I was concerned about proportion and detail. Nothing is attached pemanently yet so this was more or less a dry run to see what areas I need to work on. For example, the cap needs to be more rounded in the front and the chin plate needs to be toned down a bit more, along with the jaw bone section that will house some electronics down the road. I am thinking of adjusting the visor as well.

    MISC NOTES: I have found a fabric that is used for padding floors, this fabric is thick "Neoprene" type material that will be used for underpadding...more to come on this in the near future. I have done some research on electronics and it looks like I will be using lighting underneath the suit to produce a glow. I probably will not go with the traditional Green of MC...rather I will go a dark navy blue or steel (More of a night time look) Hope you all enjoy the pics and the progress. Feel free to write me with suggestions.

    Here is the latest pics from the armor...I am getting close to finishing the helmet...

    I will soon be attaching the jaw piece to the headpiece. Once this is done I will be using foam rubber for the backing as well as the interior for padding. I found out I can't use the resin on the foam board due to chemistry so I may have to modify my materials going forward. I will be tinting my visor gold becasue I felt if I was going to go thru all this trouble to have it look similar to the game then I should at least try for it all to be accurate..
