    Halo 4 Warrior Helmet Build ( need a bit of help pls )

    The more perfect you can make your pep now the easier it is in the long run. One thing I came across was that when I made my first helmet i tried the technique of covering it in wood glue... save yourself the trouble!!! Dont know if it was something I did but was not a good experience...

    Need Help with Pepakura

    My only advise is when I scaled my first helmet i made it big enough so that my head fit through the hole on the bottom. But that left such a huge bubble on the inside my head was floating around... not to mention it looked like I was a bobble head. The one on the right was gonna be full...

    MKVI Master Chief WIP (Pic heavy)

    Thank you all for the encouragement. Im so excited to start going from little pieces to big useful parts. I've had a lot of time the last two days because I got my wisdom teeth out so I figure I might as well occupy myself to some extent. I should (fingers crossed) get the last shin...

    MKVI Master Chief WIP (Pic heavy)

    Been really busy with graduation coming up soon, band trip and work so I havent really been able to get much work done. I'm about halfway through the right thigh. And still have the arm to do. But on the bright side I only have one jet pack which is on the home stretch then I can assemble the...

    It started as interest but I must admit I soon got obsessed just a few pages in.

    Sandbagger's Iron Man builds - Now in STEEL.

    I have spent the last several days reading darn near every post in this thread and this is truly amazing. There are no words to describe the absolute awesomeness of this suit. Your creativity and ability to think around problems is astounding. Awesome work!

    Thank you all for the help, I'll be checking out those videos shortly and get working on it soon. As of right now I'm almost completely done with all the pop files. I'm skipping the fingers for right now, but all I have left is the right shin and right arm.

    I've seen that putty. Definitely think I'm gonna try it sometime soon. Does anyone have any ideas how to attach all the torso pieces together. For instance the jet packs to the shoulders. Shoulders to the chest piece. And the parts that attach from the lower parts of the chest around your...

    Thanks everyone, I think I'm gonna start with a plain under armor suit and probably add layers of foam over time. It will probably take a really long time but I'm not in any hurry. In my minds eye I'm thinking of iconic_heroes_costumes (instagram). His suits foam bits look really good. I'm...

    OH HOW LONG IT'S BEEN!!! I apologise for being gone for so long, but as you all know sometimes life gets in the way. In my little hiatus I've got quite a bit done. I have finished both shoulder pieces, both lower back, andand bit between the shoulders. In progress is both jet packs...

    Phauxelates's Mk. VI EVA Foam Build [Project Status: Finishing the Fight]

    Yeah give it some time, I messed mine up a few years ago and pushed way to hard to get back playing soccer and still have some pain from time to time.

    MKVI Master Chief WIP (Pic heavy)

    yeah, I did try the fiberglass and epoxy route... long story short it was a complete mess, didn't add enough hardener then too much. You know, the usual issues... I mostly fixed them now, but some small areas pop up here and there. In the states we have bondo as opposed to Nigrin(I think...

    WIP - My Masterchief MK VI build

    very impressed with the pep. If I can, what fillers are you using? It doesn't look like bondo to me and it looks like it might be easier to work with. (i'm in the works of a Mk.VI as well as my first suit build and sucking in info like a sponge at the moment.)

    I think that is my issue. That being that I'm building up layers in the parts that are fracturing. That makes a lot of sense now that I'm thinking about it. Whoops...
