    Helmet Cooling System / Visor Anti-Fog Installation?

    If all else fails, you can try the classic swimmer's trick: the spit-n-rub. Definitely not a long term solution, but it will keep swim goggles fog-free long enough to finish a practice. Its easy: Step 1: rinse out the inside of the lens, Step 2: spit on the inside of the lens. Step 3: rub the...

    Halo 4 Spartan IV under armor and utility suit

    Ok, perfect, thats encouraging. Your's is probably a 5:4 or thicker. I'd just heard that they're a bad idea for cons, I'll probably use my 3:2 just to be on the safe side. Its too thin to keep me warm in the summer even! Then again, the Monterey Bay isn't known for warm waters! I've been...

    Halo 4 Spartan IV under armor and utility suit

    Just wondering though, what thickness? I'd imagine my 5:4 would get way too hot, but my 3:2 I figured might work. I'm nowhere near done with my armor, just planning ahead.

    First build, or "How to Anger Your Housemates in 5 Easy Steps!" (Pic Heavy)

    Probably not the same file. This didn't come with support stuts, just a face shield that didn't help at all, so I removed it so I could make my supports better. Dang, really wish I knew this before I started glassing it. It's more or less symmetrical, just the right side of the visor droops a...

    First build, or "How to Anger Your Housemates in 5 Easy Steps!" (Pic Heavy)

    Thanks for the advice. It will definitely come in handy on the rest of the build. Actually I basically did this on the chin which is probably why it turned out so much better than the back... which I rushed. Oh well, lesson learned. Thanks. Its been a few years since I last lurked here. I...

    First build, or "How to Anger Your Housemates in 5 Easy Steps!" (Pic Heavy)

    Update for those who have viewed this. I've finished resining, and have started glassing. After some research, I've decided to try out the mudglassing method (rondo + fiberglass). The first fiberglass sheet is curing as I type this. Heres some pics on how the hardening turned out: As you...

    First build, or "How to Anger Your Housemates in 5 Easy Steps!" (Pic Heavy)

    Merry Christmas all! So I'm finally getting around to building some armor - something thats been on my to do list for years now. I'm going for a MkVI (because there are never too many of those \sarcasm), but it will be slightly modded. I have some ambitious plans that I'll get to later in...

    Minecraft UNSC IN AMBER CLAD

    You could always copy the interior of the pillar of autumn, is assume they'd be similar.

    Minecraft UNSC IN AMBER CLAD

    Awesome. Are you going to do the interior as well? I saw a 1:1 Battlestar Galctica the other day and while damned impressive, I was disappointed not even the CIC was included, just the outside shell of the whole thing.

    I've got a question about google sketchup...

    So I decided that I'd like to try out a bit of 3d modeling, so I downloaded sketchup 8. Problem is, I can't find any ways to install plugins. I know its a matter of finding the plugins folder and simply adding the .rb file, but its as though it doesn't exist. also, in the top bar (I'm running...

    Halo Ce remake confirmed

    I agree with the remake of CE, as long as its just the graphics and minor weapons upgrades everyone's suggesting. As for a sequel, I don't think it should take videogame form. To me, it would seem more logical to leave that story for the big screen. If the Halo movie ever gets back underway, I...
