    LongShot-X's Mark VI HD MJOLNIR Armor - WIP

    A Noob's 1st attempt at Armor Making!

    Hello everyone in the 405TH!

    I thought that I'd start off by sharing with everyone my progress on at my 1st attempt at making a Mark VI High Def Mjolnir Armor.

    Nothing says it better than pic's!


    At ATTENTION!



    ABOUT FACE!


    At EASE!


    Test fitted the Helm ---> YES it Fits!
    Test fitted the Torso ---> Problem! Can't squeeze my shoulders thru the bottom and into the torso. Will have to research how and when to split the torso into 2 pieces. Otherwise the measurements say I'll fit while wearing an undersuit.

    More progress reports to come.

    Just a friendly reminder: You need to have an Infantrymen status (or better) before you can post to this thread.

    Interested in making armor and don't know where to start? Start by checking out this thread:

    The torso has allways been meant to be split. I could draw you up a diagram of where if you wanted, just send me a pm. Otherwise thats some nice peping!

    Finished Pepping the Right Shoulder piece. The pics say it all.

    This is about 1/2 way done


    Next pic (below) is 100% done.


    Now to resin the inside and outside.

    Your pieces look great! Can't wait to see your parts come to life.

  9. #9
    Finished pepping the Left High Def Forarm.


    Oh and have a closer look.... No Edge ID #'s

  10. #10
    Wow, this is very good pep work you have here.

    For assembling pepakura without edge IDs, you have now been upgraded to BAMF status.

  11. #11
    How did you do that? I mean, I suppose it's not impossible, but definitely very difficult, especially in the early stages.

  12. #12
    I used the Peppakura designer to show me where each piece goes. That means that I have to do the pepping with the comptuer close at hand. The benefit that I discovered by doing it this way is that it is easier to see where I have to cut and fold. Especially with the really small intricate folds.

    I'll be doing it this way for the rest of the pepping process.

    There is a typo in the title of this thread.
    Is there a moderator or an administrator that can correct it for me?
    Typo: Mojlner
    Should be: Mjolnir
    Thanks

    Finished pepping the High Detail mark VI Right Forearm.
    Im finding it easier to cut and assemble with NO EDGE ID's

    now onto the wrist pieces!

  16. #16

    It's so crisp!!

    To edit your title (And to the rest of you forum-goers, a working editor) -- Hit edit, then "Go Advanced" On the bottom right. Edit the title (up top) and save. Ta-daa! (It's also spelled MJOLNIR, All Caps, as was the Hammer of Thor, the god of thunder, but the caps is merely a formality.)

    Also, +1 BAMF for Nil Edge ID's. Kick ass work you've done; Can't wait to see it glassed, bondoed and painted

    Protip: For rigidity in the HD pieces, go for cloth and press it into the sharp creases, along with liberal amounts of resin. For Overall stability, at the cost of rigidity and part endurance (they can be dinged really easily), Set the crease to level, pour resin into it, and paint on fiberglass mat or cloth. This method is time-consuming, as you have to wait for the resin to cure before tilting or tipping the piece, or air voids will develop.

    Above all else, Have fun doing it!

    Thanks cneyrinck! That spelling error really bugging me.
    Also, I'll try out your "Protip" with regards to resin/fiberglassing.
