Hey everyone, I've been a member for over a year but haven't ever used the blog function. I usually find blog's to be either preachy or filled with useless details that no one really cares about. Anyway, I guess I'll start to blog my build progress, which I'd love for everyone to follow. So far, I have completed the helmet, a knife, both shoulder attachments, both handplates(might red-do), one upper arm, and one forearm or a Reach build. I have the majority of the second shoulder already cut out so I have prolly one more piece of card stock to cut through. I found out last night, it takes ALOT of time off to fold the pieces right after you cut them because I usually cut everything out, and then go back and fold everything(stupid idea looking back). I have also been preoccupied reading Ready Player One and I'm addicted. My goal is to have a majority of the pep work done by July 13th, when i go down to Myrtle Beach. So I have roughly a good 2 weeks. I'm gonna try to finish the upper arm tonight. If not, I will definitely tomorrow. I think I would have alot more done by this time if the scaling tutorials weren't COMPLETE bullshit. I used them for a few peps and they did NOT help whatsoever. Everything came out incredible too small, especially my first helmet(idk why but it could have only fit on a babys head). People, I'm 5'8, with a 32 inch waist, 195 lbs and play football...
