Fallout 3:  Pip-Boy 3000 by Darksamu Fallout 3:  Pip-Boy 3000 by Darksamu
Here's the Pip-Boy 3000 I made for my Fallout 3 outfit. I managed to find a little TV as the base, which worked out much better than I had planned. The rest of it is made out of Model Magic, cardboard, plastic, and artistic license. I managed to light it up with my iPod, but I have to find a better substitute for that, one that hopefully plays GNR for longer as well.

Here's a some of the steps that went into making it.

you could probably rig up some LED lights around the edge of the screen or use glo-sticks (i don't really advocate that though) as for GNR you could easily get one of those little recorders with GNR soundclips and attach it to the underside of your forearm, or if it's small enough clip it to the top or one of the sides.

Just some ideas, I don't know if they are at all feasible, but maybe they'll help you a bit.

Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely keep an eye out for a little recorder because the iPod definitely didn't work. However, I may be getting a smart phone soon, so I'd love to see how well that would work.

neat. be careful with the smartphones though, they can be tricky to modify (broke 2 trying) just because of all of the tiny circuits. but if you can get it to work that'll be amazing!

If this was my sole job, I'd consider it. Unfortunately, the whole process was very time-consuming and it would be difficult to find just the right pieces again since most of them were happy finds at garage sales. I do kind of want to make a Pimp-Boy 3 Million, however. Maybe if I streamline the process more, I could do multiple...

However, I definitely encourage you to try it yourself! It was a super fun learning process. :)

PIP-BOY not PIMP-BOY...or did you say that on purpose?
Reply
:icondarksamu:
Darksamu Featured By Owner May 17, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Nope, I definitely meant Pimp-Boy. I'm not sure if you have played New Vegas yet, but you can get a different version of the Pip-Boy that's golden and has some jewels, hence the name. It's pretty sweet.

I found the TV at a garage sale, so that might not be a lot of help. I'll try to get together and put up some kind of painting tutorial, but it'd probably just be on some random object. I don't have much of a technique, but I'd love to share what I do.

Nice! Still came out better than mine, which was mostly PVC pipe and cardboard. Hadn't even thought of using Model Magic!

(also reminds me that I still haven't posted any pictures of my Fallout stuff. Where's my camera?)

Thanks! I had thought about using more cardboard for the structure, but the Model Magic worked out pretty well. It shapes a bit better than cardboard. :)

Yes, find the camera! I love seeing other people's Fallout items.
