I cant believe this is your first build. Your scaling is soo good. Everything looks spot ont o fitting you just right. I agree about slightly upscaling the helemt, so itll be more comfy with padding and all. If you have any scaling tips for another noob id appreciate them lol.



And as for the bella/stewart look, you could always just do an Adventureland costume, that might be more exceptable lol....

Wow that pistol turned out fantastic! By how much did you scale it down because I've got a few pieces of cardstock left and I might give that pistol a try. I gotta have me a secondary weapon! :lol

First off, Nat... I LOVE (yes love) that you have, not just surfboard, but MULTIPLE surfboards lying around your yard, that makes you flippin rad (it doesn't even really matter if they're not yours). :D



Also, I agree with the nay sayers, the helmet needs to be bigger. In my opinion, if you pep it, and glass it, and your ears can't fit through the hole, then it's a smidge too small. When it's just paper, it can get super misleading, because the paper version flexes so easily, you don't even realize it's happening until you've glassed, and it's too late. After you've glassed it, you should really only have to do MINOR trimming around the rim to get it on without scraping your ears flush with the side of your head.



Did you wind up using my shins? Were they a pain in the buttocks to fit right?



I'm totally glad you're going with the grav hammer... chicks with enormous weapons are hot... see?

@ Burke: thanks! yeah upscaling the helmet is definalty the way to go, i want it to fit perfectly not squeazing my head haha

as for scaling tips, all i did for mine was measure the part of body that i wanted to pep and went from there, but the helmet was a challege as that was either too big, too small etc.. but i always built the very low res files as the testers to see if they fit. hope this helps!



@ Silversaw Jack: thanks man, appriecate the comment :)



@ Monicator: yeah i love the pistol!! i put in a 58mm width of the piece so the width of the handle, not the depth! (obviously :lol )



@ Quartermain3000: oh i love my surfboards too!! yeah i own the red long board, and the smaller 6ft one in the bag, im a big surfer. but my dad owns the big (and i mean big) foam board, he wanted to learn, bought it and now it sits in the garage and gathers dust haha

yeah i figured im going to have to trim a bit for my ears to fit, after reading many peoples threads almost all of them say they trimmed the bottom of the helm.

ah your shins! yeah i built half so the base up, but then i realised that they would need to be cut and attached like clips, rather than just trim around the bottom edge. i figured i'll stick with the larger ones to save time with the cutting and attatching.. but as they fit perfectly (they just look a little large in the top opening) they will fill out more with the padding and undersuit.

oh the grav hammer! yeah i went with the biggest :D i love pepping this though, such big folds and tabs compared to the rest of the armour haha



@ Drgnfyre4: thanks! didnt take me as long as i thought either.



@ FROCKLIFFE: yeah im pretty new so i havnt been around here much :)



@ Alex spartan177: hey thanks! dude im loving your reach wip, cant wait to see it finished. i'll have to drop a comment on there, as ive kinda just been watching and not commenting :D and yes surfing is awesome!!!



@ Tribal: thank you! yeah i try really hard to get it looking nice and clean with good folds and cuts. go exacto!





thanks all for your comments, it really encourages me to finish! * runs to computer to carry on with the grav hammer *

Nice work so far, and (i'm sure your tired of hearing it) your scaling is perfect. Seeing home fast your working, I'm going to see if I can get my marine pepped in one MASSIVE session. Good luck and keep up the good work.

Wow, I just saw your thread, and I have to admit, that's some fantastic pepwork! Very nice job so far, and I'm amazed at the detail of your pistol. Usually, one doesn't see that much effort put into a pep weapon (that still looks good!) I can't wait to see the finished product!



... I have to admit, I'd probably pay money to watch somebody in a Spartan suit try surfing :lol





Cheers!

I think everyone has had problems. If you look closely, there hasn't been any posts in the last 6-8 hours or so. It happens every once in a while.



As for the build, stop.

Yeah, Adam's web host "took him off autopay," so when they didn't get paid they pulled the plug. Found that out through becoming a can of 405th on Facebook



EDIT: The 405th twitter said it was actually a hosting issue with the amount of awesome we have on this site...

Looks good, interesting that you started with the legs and built up, I started my ODST stuff with helmet and I am working down, mainly because its the most exciting part.
