    Foam ODST (WIP)

    1. Anet A8. At the time it was one of the cheapest 3D printers available, partially because it comes as a kit. There are tons of files on thingiverse that help make improvements to the 3D printer, mostly just stabilizing pieces that help make the frame more rigid. If i remember right I ordered...

    Foam ODST (WIP)

    I originally planned on using the tail light blackout before I found the tutorial on how to dye a visor. The most difficult part about dying the visor is finding a disposable pot large enough to heat the water in. I got lucky and found one at my local Goodwill for $9. The dye method is nice...

    Foam ODST (WIP)

    Last night I finished painting everything a base coat of flat black. This morning I had time to put everything on and managed to rig up a way to hold my phone to take pictures. The only difficult part about putting the armor on by myself is the shoulders. I have to put them on after the upper...

    Foam ODST (WIP)

    I dyed the visor today. I used the method shown in the Punished Props video "How to Tint a Visor," and it worked great! I originally planned on using two packets, one black and one blue. I ended up only using the blue one. I did three rounds of 5 minutes in the dye at 140 degrees. I dyed two...

    Visor Update! Today I vacuum formed 3 visors. I ended up with two really good ones and one.... uh... test piece. I'm planning on using the tinting method shown in the Punished Props video "How to Tint a Visor" but that is gonna be a little ways out.

    Foam ODST (WIP)

    Today I finished up the chest plate and temporarily attached it. I'll need to be able to remove it later to attach the straps to the plastic pieces and then attach those to the back of the chest plate. I also put a coat of black on the helmet. There are a few spots I missed that need a little...

    Foam ODST (WIP)

    Hello everyone, it has been several years since I've even been on this website and my old username is long gone. This first post is going to be quite long as I have been working on my armor intermittently for about a year and a half. This is not my first attempt at making armor. I have tried...
