    My Current Project (Mark VI Armor Including Mark V Helmet From Halo 3)

    I've tried it like that, and it's got quite the strength. Looks as if I've done harder work than I should have with the resin so far. I should have resined the outside, but I did it all on the inside. Oh well, I'm thinking it still works the same. I've still got the helmet and such to do. I...

    Yeah my dad does a lot of drywall work. I'm using 110 LB card stock. That's what the tutorial on that wiki site told me to use. I'll try to get some of the actual stuff, that way I don't screw up. Also, should I resin the outside as well?

    Alright, I've resined the inside of all the pieces except the helmet, cod piece, and chest. It's worked great so far, except on the thighs. That's okay, they aren't very hard to pep. I need to know though, is it still supposed to be flexible after 1 layer of resin? I haven't put any fiberglass...

    Good news. I got my resin yesterday, and I'm going to begin working in a few minutes. There's one thing I need to ask. Is this type of fiberglass okay to use? My dad uses it for his construction jobs, and he said it should work just fine. I just want to make sure though. It's just about the...

    Sorry if I haven't posted an update in a while. I have the thighs done. So now I have the full suit pepped. I'm trying to save up some money to get the fiberglass and other things. Here's some pictures of what the complete suit so far. Pictures:

    It took me, if you don't count the days I was lazy and didn't feel like doing anything, about 2 weeks for all those pieces. Before school was out, I even pepped some of the pieces there. Now I have all summer to work on this thing. These are the L.D. pieces. I'm going to do a lot of body work to...

    Higdog827's Masterchief Build (NOW COMPLETE!)

    Pretty good, my friend. My suit's scale may be a little off as well. I think I have the same problem you have. Have a look and see what you think.

    A project actually for ME! (pic heavy)

    The helmet. It looks like a combination of an O.D.S.T. helmet and a Spartan Scout from Reach. Looks very interesting. I'd like to see the final outcome.

    Finally got an update for you. I have all the pieces pepped, except for the thighs, because I ran out of cardstock. I'll get some more today though, and I'll be done with them by the end of the week. Anyway, I have some pictures for you, in case you were wondering. There's a picture for ever set...

    Yeah it's something new, I think. It comes in the same cylinder shaped container as the body filler does. I think it's just a non-runny version of resin, something like super glue gel, rather than liquid. I won't get it though, cause it may be something totally different. Also, I don't know if...

    I may use the mud option, but for right now, for the main parts like the helmet and chest, I'm going to follow through with the normal routine, because since this is my first attempt at making a suit, I don't want to do anything out of the ordinary that may mess it up, you know what I mean?

    Thanks. That did answer my questions. I'm going to go ahead and get cloth because as you said, the mat is just a bunch of fiberglass threads thrown together. The reason I didn't know is because the cloth looks almost metallic, like a woven piece of steel wool. But I see now that it isn't. Thanks...

    I would like to know, when I'm finished, I don't know which is better to use. Fiberglass Resin Jelly, or just Fiberglass Resin. Also, I wrote down prices of all the things I'm going to need for that step, but I wrote down a possible alternative for Bondo Glass. It says on the container that it's...

    Here's one of my last updates for the night. It's a picture of all my parts so far. I have both biceps done, a forearm, a hand plate, a shin, chest piece, helmet, and cod piece. In the picture I have them laid out in what position the pieces are supposed to be in. I have support struts in the...

    mark VI first pep W.I.P

    Hey dude, I don't know if it's my computer or not, but your pictures aren't showing up. Trying re-linking them, or re-upload them. Right now it just looks like random lines of code. I'm not meaning to be mean or anything, I just wanted to let you know...
