    New Build: Reach MP WIP (pic heavy)

    Hey guys. I decided to start over on what I wanted to do. I have been working/researching this for the past week to make sure I have it in my head what exactly I want to do....



    Well, here is the WIP...spent basically all weekend doing this, and I am pretty happy with the results





    Hopefully, Tuesday I will be putting on the resin/fiberglass...I just hope it's scaled right. I think it is, but I didn't try it on before I put the support in, find out soon enough...

    I'd also like to thank scizor112 for taking time out of his day to get about 30 great in-game reference shots for me! thanks a bunch!

    Next on the list: Helmet - will be working on this periodically through the week and will post images once I get more of the helmet complete-

    Very clean Pepwork my friend! The only thing I can see is it looks a little mis-shapen at the bottom near the last pic, but a little cardboard reinforcement might help that out a lot. You're very welcome, I'm glad my reference pictures helped; obtaining them for people actually gives me an excuse to take a break from my build and play Reach lol. Can't wait to see how the helmet turns out!

    Need Reference Screenshots for your Reach Spartan Build and don't feel like uploading to Bungie? I have a complete Armory except for Waypoint Armor, hit me up.

    Maybe it's just the pic, but the very bottom of the piece where the spine would go looks a little warped toward the right. You can resin/glass over the cardboard, it won't hurt it any more than it will hurt the cardstock; I've added cardboard to my Forearm pieces so they keep shape.

    AH! i see where you are talking about now...

    I noticed that last night right before I went to bed...I misplaced one of the tabs...just got to get a lighter, un-glue it, and reset it in the right position.

    Just be careful to not set your piece on fire! XD as cool as the Flaming Armor Effect is, I'm pretty sure that's not what you're looking for.

    If you've used hot glue to put the pieces together the metal tip of the gun can be used to melt the glue by holding it to the paper for less than 10 seconds. I would avoid the lighter.

    great work man keep it up and maybe you'll be able to make it to dragon con next year.
    The only thing that separates success from failure is one last attempt. Try one more time and you may get lucky.

    That looks really good! You're well on your way to making a fantastic build!

    I would also recommend avoiding a lighter. Fire will catch much quicker than most people realize (I had a few water powered bottle rockets ignite using a lighter)
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
