Some more update pictures, Kev has been flying through this process as you can see, once he starts a build he doesn't slow down.

So the Kit mask he purchased has been put together and the skin applied, he has used a welders mask headband and then built the crown with EVA foam.





He then went straight into laying up all the hair. The mask we sculpted and moulded will be completed i have just been busy with college work, normal work and life in general but it has not been shelved just delayed.





Rebuilt the toes on the stilts as they were a bit small.


Until finally the Isle of Man has its very own Chewie








Couple of stylised pictures too.






We are by no stretch saying this is complete and it will continue to be a work in progress but we think we have start of a great looking chewy, as always happy to receive constructive criticism and general opinions. Also if any new builders want to ask any questions about how we or more the point Kev and Zoe went about this process shout out we are happy to offer any hints, tips or tricks we picked up along this journey. We couldn't have done it without the valuable information contained within this forum if you look hard enough you can find the answers to almost all the problems you will hit on here as many people before us have hit them already.

Thanks Guys and Gals

Enjoy

Looks awesome!! I may need to observe some of your mask pics to help with mine. I still don't have a working jaw because I need to fix it so I can put pressure on jaw.

Looks absolutely amazing bud!! Love the facial hair, certain resemblance of Josh's Chewie which I personally adore.

Well done on the boxes, they look brilliant! I found Gungi's belt detail from Jamie online during a search for boxes and did find some 3D box files apparently made to size. I just want a bunch of them for a harness for my generic wookiee, not a bandolier, will let you know how they look Smile

Congrats on the build!

I don't know who Josh is for the chewie mask but it must be great if it looks like mine 😂 I just found some good close ups of ANH chewie and tried to do it justice . I've had to slick it back alot to hold the hair and stop it flopping at the sides , but I'm going to loosen some off to give it a little more movement . Cheers for the comments and great advice from chewy 5.2 😉
