Vector Gas Mask Tutorial by ZombieHunt3r Vector Gas Mask Tutorial by ZombieHunt3r
Edit - I have found a youtube video showing how to take the lenses out and refit into the mask: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeQGFA…



Vector - Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Gas Mask Tutorial


Finally got this finished. The lighting part is still open to interpretation really as im still working on it myself but i put what i have there as examples to show how it can look. If i do improve on it then i'll edit the tutorial with it and reupload it. If anyone has other ideas or have gotten it to work better yourself then let me know and i can try things out and add them onto this

I put this tutorial together incase it is of use to anyone. I dont see many people who make the front piece on the mouth so I showed how I made mine here. I took pics of each step as I went so it should be clear enough. If you want to ask anything though then go ahead


Comment/fav if you use this. If you follow it to make your own let me see a pic when you're done, I'd like to see how it turns out :P

Its fun though :P I find it more rewarding to have done something yourself than just buying it premade but its not always easy to or possible. I do have a spare S10 I was going to do up as either HUNK or Vector to sell finished but I never got around to doing it. I dont take commissions anymore but as I need rid of this anyway really I have one I could do

hey can you help me with getting the lenses out?

ZombieHunt3r Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
Yeah the lens were a big problem for me. Eventually found out to use a really small screwdriver (flathead) or a knife blade and stick it in the rim. Theres a rim there thats invisible til you begin to pry it off. Even knowing its there I cant see it. Would say just gently run a knife blade around the edge of the outer rim til you see an inner lip appear then just pry it off and the lens will come out. Hard to explain really and alot of people dont know how to do it so I might make a tutorial with pics just for this part too. Video too if I can. My only problem now is getting the outer rim back on once I put it back into the mask. Once you realise how the lens come out its easy to do

I have a question, how do you get the clear perspex circles back into the mask ? I had an issue with mine and had to take the original ones out, so I just bought some and was wondering how you put yours into the mask.

ZombieHunt3r Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Well if you were able to get the originals out (therefore know how to do it) then you just need to get the housing out, split the 2 bits apart and put the perspex in the inside of the larger housing ring then refit the smaller ring in to hold it together and put the whole thing back in the mask . I can try do a video or something you want. I had been intending to anyway since alot of people cant figure out how to get the lens out, myself included til I found out I needed a screwdriver to pry the outer housing ring off

its totally up to you, :] . that would probably be helpful. It wasn't hard getting the original lenses out. but before I could find any window tint like the kind you made yours with, I used this spray on window tint and at first it was alright but then it became unbearably hard to see out of. Thats why I had to replace them. The problem I'm having though, I have an s10 avon mask like you do, and not the lenses, but the outer rings on the lenses are just so hard to snap back together, so I was curious as to how id fit the replaceable lenses back into it. Sorry If I make no sense, its all just really confusing. :S and this is for a Hunk mask, not vector, not that it matters though.

I can try do one then. Ah you're having that problem. Yeah that thing is a pain to try and get back in. The other problem I have is getting the outer ring back on once the housing is inside the mask. I should probably practice those before trying to do a video, could spend like 10 minutes recording just trying to get them on. Theres just a technique to doing it that I've yet to grasp. I have 3 different masks so I can try it again. That little ring is really irritating though so I know what you mean now

yeah those rings are irritating as all hell. I'll get it though ! Also, one more question.

- Where did you end up finding the jacket? v I saw that you said you commissioned it but from who and what price would somebody be able to get it for? I could paint on the pattern myself, but I just need to find the jacket itself >.<

Yep they are. Good luck then. Just a case of practice really

I commissioned it from someone on ebay. Not sure if I would recommend her now or not though, she isnt responding to me regarding something else Im trying to get. If you could find someone who takes commissions Im sure anyone could make you the basic jacket. This was made from flak material. I wasnt happy with how big the hex's are but by the time I saw it it was too late to do anything about it. It cost me $80 for the jacket and pants. The hex's were clearly rushed though so you would be better doing it yourself. I just knew I would mess it up and hoped someone else would do it better..

may i ask what hoodie you had and how you did the hex patterns on it?

ZombieHunt3r Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
I commissioned this. It was all hand made from flak material. The hex's were hand drawn on with fabric paint using a pattern. The hex's turned out far too big but by the time I saw them it was too late to do anything about it. Ideally I want them to be smaller than this

3 should be fine, as long as it still fits in the housing which I think it would be fine
