Some key data: Chassis made of screwed aluminium ledges covered with mesh wire. Then a layer of cloth was manually sewed onto the wire so the outer hull (made of foam treated with soldering irons) can be glued onto it with pattex (incredible amounts of). Painted with latex- colours (take a mug of latex, put in a small amount of acrylic paint and stir it).
Construction period: Lots. Of. Hours. Finished just in time so that the colours are dry when the game starts. Budget: No comment. Sleep during building- phase: None (overrated, anyway. This is larp).
