    How to remove Pepakura wrinkles?

    It looks like on a few of your seams you have the tabs alternating from one side to the other. In theory, this could help with alignment, but the seam will never close properly. Try to edit the tabs to the same side of the seam before you print and take your time aligning them when you glue it...

    working on my first build, need some help

    I agree with Fllschrmjager and FlyinPhil on this. If all you plan on doing is wearing the suit to cons or whatnot, then body filler is your best, easiest, and cleanest option. If you were to use the suit to film action sequences, however, pep would not have been the best way to create the suit...

    Soft Parts Captain Cutter - Halo Wars 2 (WIP)

    It's not often you see a non-armor Halo build. Looking good so far. Can't wait to see more!

    Help!: Resin, Rondo, Bondo...?

    The Hayabusa armor is an attachment of the MK VI suit. It has a different helmet and attachments for the shoulders and chest. Everything else is standard MK VI armor. As for what you attach the shoulder parts to, that's where you need to get creative. You can attach it directly overtop the...

    What do you use for an undersuit

    I used black vinyl and webbing for much of the visible parts of my undersuit. Under that I wear a Fila training shirt and Fila compression pants. The training shirt and compression pants fit tightly against my body so the vinyl and armor slides on without resistance. And even though...

    Agent Florida, what armor is that?

    Not shotgun shells. Those are closer to 40mm grenade cartridges.

    a dream of fallout

    Funny thing, there is actually an airsoft event coming up near where I live that I mean to attend; "Wasteland". It's loosely based on Fallout (in fact, you get bonuses if you show up in Fallout gear).

    Hours spent on Pepakura parts?

    I agree with Dirtdives. My own suit took 14 months once I really beared down on it; granted I was attending grad school full time, so it would have taken much less time had I not been attending. I focused on one or two pieces at a time. It's kind of fun watching the suit take shape as you...

    **Carpathia's Mk VI Armor: Master Chief Going into Cryostasis!

    Thanks for the compliment, Yortstorm. Building armor out of foam is quite different than the Pepakura method. There are plenty of great foam builds here in the forums, you'll just have to look around a bit. Good luck with your build!

    *The Official* Halo Reach Pepakura Files Thread

    WandererTJ is mostly right. I actually have those files, but I won't be sharing them for a few reasons. The people that have those files paid for them. You're not likely to get them for free. If anyone shares them, going around the creator's head, they'll be overstepping boundaries, since...

    Agent Washington Build - Halo 3 Mk VI

    Hey you know what they say, if you're going to steal, steal from the best. :D Great progress so far! Look forward to seeing more.

    Props Working Halo M6G Pistol

    I actually had the same idea a while back, but never got around to finishing it. Very good work! The only bit of criticism I have is the trigger. It looks tiny in comparison to the rest of the pistol. If there is any way for you to replace it with something more screen accurate, it would be...

    pepakura models from scratch???

    I'm going to have to disagree with Master Builder about Sketchup being a bad program for creating Pep files. I've created plenty and have seen plenty of amazing files created on Sketchup.
