Karol,


They have arrived, and if they are not EXACT then someone is going to have to point out the diffrence to me. I will gladly send in some pics soon so that you can post them. Im looking for a good jacket to redo my max jacket, and one to make a beserker jacket as well, any ideas?

MFP1,

I can't wait to get the pics from you. Let me know if you can place a more exact date on them.

As far as the jackets, I have set up a page on jackets and places to get them. Just look in the costume sector. I will be putting some info up on the Berserker jacket soon, but basically depending on how close you want it, you could start with a cafe racer, or european style racing jacket (the zipper is in the middle) and then get a leather flap to snap on over the front. (Thanks to Adam for that idea). A closer replica would be to take a regular motorcycle jacket and then carefully do some cutting, removing of the zippers, and adding the front flap. The collar would probably have to be professionally replaced. I believe Deaths Head has had this work done to his jacket, and I know a guy in Australia who is going to have one custom-made. E-mail me if you're interested in a diagram or more info.

Hey Karol, I just found a jacket that fits right and I'm planning on adding my cups and badge soon. It's a pretty new jacket made by brooks and it fits great with wide lapels and good texture. The only problem you'll have with it (or problems) is the fact that there are four zippered pocket on the front, two vertical and two horizontal and there is another flap attached to the upper arm of each sleeve (where tattoos go) and each one has four rows of horizontal stitching as "accents." I'll have to investigate further to see if they are sperate and can be cut off or if they are part of the jacket. Ther aren't any epaulets to cut off, so there's a break, and just the fact that it fits is a blessing. I wear a size 40 and it seems that everybody in the world buys them up and never sells them. I'm still looking for one that's a little beat up for a RW jacket. The shoulder pad's all made but no jacket in sight. The big pawn shop in Deland is having 15% off all their leather jackets so I'll take a look in the rack hopefully tomorrow. Whenever I get a chance I'll remake the mold for my shoulder cups and get them closer to the movie's. Mine are "domed out'' too far. I was working on the booby trap for Max's car a while ago but I got sidetracked. I'll post another topic in the general discussion to see if anyone has ideas.

Found that the tools fit well on my "max" belt. I really dont weant to chop off the axe handle darn it!! I guess, like cuting a blower hole in a perfectly good hood, some things have to be done?
