    Starting my UNSC Marine armor today.

    Update 1 I have finished cutting all of the pieces for the helmet. No pics as of yet though. I figure a bunch of cut outs wouldn't be very much fun to look at anyway lol. I will start gluing and post pics of that. Stay tuned! -Anthony

    Forerunner Armor, Has Anyone Made It?

    I'm not sure about that one. But even so, that's nothing a that little improvisation wont fix. I'm almost positive that someone will find a way to customize and add things as they see fit along the way to give the prop a more "Cinema quality" feel.

    Fiberglass Resin Alternative

    I think what the doctor was referring to was casting plaster. You can get craft grade plaster at most art supply and hobby shops too for just around the house crafts.
