I am planning to have my go at a Halo 4 Scout helmet, made from Pep, bondo and fibreglass resin. Could anyone tell me if these are suitable for the job? I live within the United Kingdom.

I have an X-Acto knife kit and the rest of the items. I am following the tutorial by Impactprops, link for anyone who is interested. http://www.impactcustoms.com/pepakura-assembly.html

Edit: Also, any advice on what retailer will sell 110lb cardstock is greatly appreciated.

PVA wood glue is far more effective, safe and friendly for pep work. Get rid of the super glue.

I have been using super glue. Often ended up with a layer of super glue on my finger afterwards, but I think it worked great.
Just... patience. :D

Firstly - welcome to the 405th! Seeing another UK member is great, since we don't seem to have many active members from the fair Isles.

Secondly - products. I've had to do a lot of shopping around for products myself, and I personally obtain a lot of my products from MB Fibreglass' eBay store, which you can find HERE. It's down to personal preference mostly, however, particularly when it comes to glues and blades - that said, I've found that UHU All-Purpose Adhesive can't be beat, if you can find it at a local Poundland or something.
