    Question

    I usually do a quick coat of Bondo then glass behind that to add strength after I've done a resin coat on the outside. You'll end up with a more durable piece with the glassing than if you don't.

    Ghost Patrol... (1.1) Scale Ghost Build

    Hell yeah!!! Subscribed!!! Some friends and I were thinking of making a petrol go-kart, but with that there's the problem of adding enough material to deaden the sound from the engine. Power to weight ratios come into play then. Thinking about it now, my friends and I are clearly idiots to not...

    Stiilus' Armour & Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    OMG!!! TRIPLE POST!!! By now you've probably figured I'm poking fun at those that don't like posts immediately after another by the same person. Meh, you'll get over it. "][/URL] So I'm using some standard strap hinges and turning them into "parliament hinges". You'll see what i mean when I do...

    Stiilus' Armour & Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    DOUBLE POST!!!! If you're lucky you might even get a triple post... Anyway, so I coated the inside if the chest with my friends very own special blend of "Rondo". Once there was a few coats on the inside i began sanding back and adding in some details. "][/URL] "][/URL] I know there are...

    Stiilus' Armour & Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    I know, I know... It's been quite some time since I posted anything on here. I've moved, I've been setting up workspaces, been over loaded at work, establishing a new yard at home and generally having all my time eaten up by everyone else's demands. And so now I'm necroposting in my own thread...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Re: Stiilus' Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY) Moar you say. You want moar?!!! Actually I'm trying out something in metal right now, a weapon and a helmet circa Reach. Both are in the fairly early stages of the build, both being scratch builds too, which is a little daunting to say the least...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Re: Stiilus' Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY) Thanks. I'm really missing not having space (or time) to do any builds right now, but hopefully that'll change soon. There should be more to come from Fred and Godzilla in the future too :D . Thank you SqueekinOrka. I checked the pics of your foam ODST...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Re: Stiilus' Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY) Hi all. I know its been a while since I put something up, 3D files, builds in progress or otherwise. I have been busy though, currently doing lots of welding. I figure it would be a nice addition to skills I could use to make stuff, weapons in particular...

    First build WIP - Halo 4 Recon Helmet / Halo 4 Mark VI Armor

    TT. man i wish i had a workshop set up again already, seeing this build just makes me miss it all the more. i really like your build style, everything just looks so crisp and clean, and you go that extra mile for the sake of getting the detail just right. well done. credit where it's due, this...

    Undersuits

    the latex idea isn't a bad one. the best way to do it imo would probably be to make a whole heap of little flat moulds in the shapes of the layers and pour the latex into them, making the layers about 2-3mm thick. when they dry you could then apply them to the fabric undersuit with some kind of...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Thanks Mstruvmgc. Yeah, at 97 pages it is a few pages isn't it. Still, it's a whole heap less than the low def file, and a tonne fewer pieces to cut out too to boot!!! I scaled it to 2 meters tall, just like the low def, 'cause I think that's the weapons actual size anyway, if not I can always...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Dammit. The stupid URL blocking service at my library has blocked 4Shared so I can't host the file just yet. $H!++y URL blocking service!!!! I'm so angry right now at all the people who pirate stuff and put it on there... Anyway, when i do find alternate means of getting the file onto 4Shared...

    Stiilus' Armour & Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    For the longest time i've been promising to put up a tut/breakdown of how i made it. I really should get round to it one day. The lower jawline is just a basic regular motorcycle helmet, held in place using the same method i explain in my Mk V (using bolts and screw inserts), while the curve of...

    Stiilus' Old Weapon Builds (PIC HEAVY)

    Thanks Mstruvmgc. I can't wait to get the file up for everyone. I haven't done any more work on sine i posted the pic, just been too damn tired at the end of the day. I just dug a 27m trench, over half a meter deep for my mum to run a new phone line on saturday. Ouch. Now i'm filling it in this...
