    well I'm gonna start work on my ODST costume when i go back to singapore at the end of the year. If i do complete it, I might just decide to pack it up and haul it over to brisbane. No idea when I'd use it though lol.

    They just updated the site and he is attending, doesn't say which of the two but I'm guessing it's probably both

    Not a lot that looks all that interesting to me at either event so far but hopefully they add some more cool guests between now and then. Kane Hodder could be interesting though.

    I just hit a snag in my armor, not a big one...well maybe it is, but at least I can now have some help I just got a new Job that now requires me to start on December 1st and will keep me occupied until the end of February with just the basic Training, and then on to god knows where so I may have no ability to make or use armor. But oh well, I'll at least be able to consult with the Fitter-Armaments and all the other guys in that area who can help me with it.

    This is a very helpful index, but i also wanted to ask, i went to autobarns and super cheap auto (In victoria) and i also noticed that they sell polyster Fibreglass resin it had came with the resin and catalyst, i was pretty happy to fnd that the do sell it but when i read the desciption again, they said it was only 250ml (http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/onl...d=1638#details) Would that be enough, it seems like it's the only place near me that sells them. What should i do?

    I have used that stuff in the past, basically it's the same as what I use now but smaller quantities and packaged for Septone (and more expensive). I can't remember exactly how much I got out of it but you'd probably be able to do a helmet and some other parts with that, would really depend on how many layers you use.

    I'd probably pick one of the kits up if you can't find anything else and see how far you get.

    So proberbly just buy multiple sets? Seeing as your soaking a fibreglass mat in it will soak up alot.

    well there is actually 2 really good places for buying fiberglass sheets , either try super cheap auto like belakor mentioned or go to bunnings warehouse

    i do know that bunnings sells it by the square meter for $27 and it last a very long time depending on the use



    hope this helps

    I don't know where in Victoria you are, but FGI (Fibreglass International) http://www.fgi.com.au/?q=springvale-vic in Springvale will have cheap matting, cloth & resin. The mat I get from them is about $11 for 3sqm. Resin usually about $15 p/l. And always get waxed resin. Unwaxed will always retain a tacky feel.

    Mkay, i went to supercheap auto today and found the amazing "Fibreglass Repair Kit" and to be honest, i really liked it, it was complete with catalyist, stirring stick Polyster resin, mixing cup, and a paintbrush. But when i was looking through the shelves i saw this: http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/onl...d=3144#details . I asked them if it was the right one which meant that it contained the catalyst and had the pastey texture. He replied he didn't know. Is this the right one?

    I'm pretty sure that stuff is like what they refer to as Bondo Hair in the States. It's basically a body filler with glass fibers mixed in for strength. For armour building I don't think it's a lot of help, it is strong but the fibers make it pretty messy.

    The repair kit should be good for what you need, they're always handy since they've got everything inside

    1sqm fiberglass mat

    1kg resin

    1 - 2 20 ml catalyst

    That doesn't mean we've stopped working on stuff totally though, good luck with the comp Portalman!



    I also have an unrelated note, but one that affects Aussie gamers, so I thought I'd post it here-



    A discussion paper designed to stimulate debate about Australia getting an R18+ classification for video games has finally been released! It can be viewed at- http://www.ag.gov.au/gamesclassification -the public are invited to answer questions on the subject and also put forward any (brief) views they want heard. This is finally our chance to have our say on games like GTA4, Fallout 3 & Left 4 Dead 2 being censored before they reach our hands. Hurry, submissions MUST be in by February 28.

    Yeah, we have all been a busy bunch it seems. But with the con season starting up properly in 3 months, time to show off what we have been making.
