    Cool MK VI Foam Build

    So guys I mentioned on my Iron Man build that I Started something new while I was cooling off over my Iron Man face burning incident and this is what I have come up with. Incase anyone wonders where I got the files for a foam build from I simply downloaded the pep file and took off the tabs and unnecessary bits not needed for a foam build. Some modification was needed as not all the templates worked together perfect but no major alterations where made.

    That's amazing! I've always relied on making helmets out of pep because I didn't think I could accomplish all the complex shapes a helmet has with foam. But you're showing me the way! Now if I hadn't already made 3 helmets this year and wasn't so burned out about it, I'd take a try at it too

    I agree with spacemeat. Helmets are the one piece of armor in which I solely rely on pep to construct with. YOU however have achieved a great amount of detail with foam. this give's me hope for future builds because I honestly hate using pep except for a guideline to build with foam. Awesome work so far, can't wait to see the helmet finished!!!

    I am really glad it has worked the way I thought it would because I am not a fan of resin and bondo plus with the wife expecting I don't want any dangerous fumes around. Compared to my Ironman helmet this was one tough build. As long as you think out each piece before you cut it then you should be ok. Just finishing off the last details then i will have an update pic for you. Should be able to get it done tonight, then it's the really hard part, what colour to use as this will determine my overall suit colour scheme.

    You've got one Sweet looking helmet so far. After seeing you're Iron Man, I already know this will turn out looking just as good as any pep. and I look forward to seeing the rest.

    Spartans aren't born, they're built, thru blood, sweat, and tears. And maybe a little Fiberglass.
