    Dec 22, 2014, 5:34 AM - Master Chief build (Halo 5 - Guardians E3 2013 Teaser trailer version) #1


    [Intro]

    Welcome!
    It is time to finally start working on this project too. So as the title fo this thread says I will be making Master Chiefs armor, specifically I will make the E3 2013 Halo 5 - Guardians teaser trailer version. Again I want this to be finished before the release of a new Halo game, that is Halo 5 - Guardians, so that I could pick up my copy like a boss. Anyway, this is going to be another pepakura build (I guess no surprise there xD) even though I wanted this one to be a "full foam build", but after many hours of practicing how to work with it I ended up sucking at it. xD Itīs just not for me. Still, I will use a few new things I learned from making my I.M.C. Titan pilot (which is still a W.I.P.) and also I will try to scratchbuild Cortanaīs Data chip too and if it ends up looking good I might try to make a few casts too! That would be all for this short intro.

    Enjoy the show!


    Please post tips or critiques only! And please write the truth!


    I mean seriously, sometimes telling the truth about what is wrong with something can help tremendously and donīt worry, I wonīt get angry because of it.

    I will post updates whenever Iīll have something done. Also you can follow my progress on my Facebook page!

    [Update no.1]


    It is time for the very first update on my Master Chief build! Usually I start off by making the helmet first, but since I had a hard time finding the right files I decided to start working on Cortanas Data chip. Letīs just say it was one of the hardest things I had to make since I had no information on it at all - no measures, actual "in-game" reference pictures (except one) or anything of that sort so I had to go with the trial and error method. As you can see on the pictures below the V1 was just too small and V2 still might not be the perfect size but it is the closest to the one in the trailer. Yeah, I know that John is around 220 cm high which means that hes palms are huge, but making the data chip even bigger would look really silly that is why I pretty much scaled it to my height. :P As you can see I used some really thin BUT at the same time very strong cardboard which might now have been a good idea, but I have no access to a 3D printer or anything like that, so I had to make it out of the things I currently had at hand. :P Still I think it came out allright despite some minor details missing from it. That would be all for this update! Enjoy!

    [Update no.2]


    It is time for the second update on my Master Chief build! Letīs start with the Data chip which I covered with two layers of fiberglas resin. After it dried and I fixed it up at a few places I started applying bondo on it and letīs just say this is going to be a pain in the butt to finish it. xD Rushing it would be a really bad idea soI will take my time with it. While I was waiting for the bondo to dry so I could sand the chip I started building some armor parts. Right now I have both hand plates built. Of course I added the misiing details and resined them too. Even though I made one gauntlet/forearm I decide to scratchbuild them instead cause none of the pep files are 100% accurate. Lastly I bought a Cortana figure which I will use as an accessory for this armor. That would be all. Enjoy!

    [Update no.3]


    Not much of a progress, but I managed to make both shins and fiberglassed both hadnplates. Well I also tried to make the helmet, but I had some problem with the scaling and after 3 tries I said - Ok, thatīs enough! Iīam going back to working on my Titan Pilot. Enjoy the pictures! xd

    [Update no.4]


    After a long time it is time for another update! I was thinking about reusing the finger plates from my Spartan IV, but then I realised that they were too deformed so I just made some new ones which are actually a bit smaller this time especially the ones that go on the tip of the fingers. I skipped the resin stage and went sthraight to coat them with two layers of fiberglass resin and they came up as I expected - solid enough and managed to keep their shape. I clened them a bit so now I can move onto the bondo stage. Other than that I started wrking on the helmet AGAIN and it looks like this time its gonna be too big (280H)... currently Iīam working on the 5th one and it looks like thats gonna be small too even though its 250H. *sigh I guess Iīll try 268H then. Ah well will see. Enjoy!

    [Update no.5]


    Before I start talking about my progress I would like to ask for some help. I want to make the boots out of foam (somehow, even though I suck at it) because itīs lighter - better than carrying 2 kg weights attached to my legs if you know what I mean. The question is HOW should I do it? I was thinking about making like "full boots" if that makes any sense well kinda like this - http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/20...er-d57mogp.jpg (Itīs not mine) Would something like this work? Can I just hot glue the foam onto the boots and will it hold?





    OK now that that is out of the way time to move onto my MC build. I finally finished my helmet or more like I finished it 3 weeks ago, but I forgot to post it here. -__- But hey! Better late than never. The size is just about right and the only things that are missing from it are the small details and I guess that would be all for this Update no.5. Enjoy!
