    i found using david's fastglas resin + hardener worked a treat for my iron man pep takes about 3 to 4 coats but its amazing and very cheap also to make things a little harder in weaker spots as an alternative i use tissue which once again works a treat other stuff i use p38 hope that helps people you can get all of this minus tissue from halfords or a fast car if you got one near you

    Hey mr tattootoyou! Yeh fastglas resin is excellent quality stuff- it cures in the cold tempratures up here! However I've found it's quite expensive =/
    It's good for small projects, but when it's for a suit and your faced with 10 a time, it's not as good as buying resin in bulk. Stevens fiberglass and resin suppliers, or East Coast Resins are both excellent sources for bulk resins- they come in various types and sizes depending on your project. Might be worth taking a look?

  3. Hi everybody I was wondering what exactly is the body filler that I keep hearing about for because ,and please correct me if I am wrong, but is it used for covering and smoothing your armour so the paper isn't visible and the armour is smooth and detailed

    The body filler is to help the external structure and asthetic, you pretty much banged the nail on the head

  6. Have any of the UK members completed a build with jesmonite yet? Have kilos of the stuff sitting at home, but heard that it gets real heavy when finished. Would like to finish my two pepped helmets with them if at all possible as I don't want to waste the stuff.

    Hey fella,

    I have used Jesmonite but with little success when it comes to using it on pep. as far as using it on foam though it should be fine, It doesn't get hot like resins or other things like that, from what i can gather its like the acrylic version of body filler or resin. although maybe try a little bit as a test just to be sure.

    Hope this Helps!
