    Yet another ODST Build, pic heavy

    After a few days I've continued sanding. Now for the question that I've had for a while. What grade paper is better to sand with, I'm using 80 right now but am sure there is a better one out there? Any help would be great guys. ~Brownie

    Halo Legends: Forerunner Gun Pep WIP (pic heavy (?))

    Usually resin can run up to $50, I found you can get some at walmart for $15-20. Depending on the size larger cans cost more, small ones are cheap. I use the cheap ones for my stuff, I'd say go with that. Hope it helps. ~brownie

    GUNGNIR Helmet WIP

    Its acutally a Blast Shield cover. Yes there is 1 eye hole (camera) on it. And I'd imagin a Screan on the inside that shows whats infront of it. Maybe like a Gundum *sp* suit? Perhaps... Just an idea, should look cool if someone made it.
