    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    I'm planning to work on a sangheili, i have a pretty good idea how it would be done. Gonna buy some clay to start modelling a face shape and see where it goes from there, i remember being terrible at working with clay when i was younger so i don't know how it will go.

    Yeh this was pretty rushed, it was for a party a few days ago and i didn't know what i was doing so there's a lot i want to do better. Having a few days off and starting a new build next week i think.

    Just wanted to hop in and let you know i finished the project. Learned a ton, can do a much better job next time but i think it came out alright for a first attempt.

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    I'm using 3, i had a bunch of problems trying to get 4 to work for me. It's alright though, i realised you can measure distances between points so it's actually really easy to figure out whether the measurements are correct or not.

    In that case i think i'l leave the shoulder pieces til last, if i have time i'l re-do them the way you suggested. Unrelated, is there a way in pepakura to check that the Height/Width/Depth actually corresponds to what it says? As in a way to check that what is written as the width is actually...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    There was two files in the one i'm using as well, but i had no idea how i was going to fibreglass inside the shoulders if i actually put it together exactly as it is in the file. The piece is 3d in the pattern but i was planning to only use the top layer, making the shoulder plate itself...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    Just wanted to ask if you have any advice for this. There's a piece that isn't actually attached in my pep files. Do you have and advice on how to attach it? should i fibreglass everything and attach it after with superglue/body filler? Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet The red...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    Ok if i where to find a space to use to fibreglass it, just another quick question then. Do i attach it to the pep cardboard or do i put a layer of resin in first? Oh and pieces like the forearm are very detailed, do i just need to cover a rough shape of the piece inside or do i need to get the...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    I'm not expecting my first build to last a long time, i've no idea what i'm doing really so it's just learning for now. Planning to do another build afterwards to take my time on. I'm off work for the month so i can do 8-9 hours a day between now and then to learn/make the costume for halloween...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    Gaps like a sieve lol. I'm gonna use resin and bondo over fibreglass since i can't really have fibreglass lying around where i live. Hoping i don't mess anything up too badly since i decided to get it finished for halloween so i don't have time to do pieces more than once. Wish i'd gone with a...

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    Thanks i appreciate it, i was almost certain that i should put a layer outside as well but thought i'd make sure (my pep work is farrrrr from perfect so leaving that as the surface layer would make me sad lol)

    Easy question i can't find the answer to.

    I'm about to start hardening my first pep build, afterwards should i put a layer of resin over the cardboard outside? Every guide i read shows the hardening process inside the armor pieces but i'm not sure if people tend to resin the outside as well or just paint straight onto the cardboard...
