Yeah it works really good to get the basic shape and then I just used foamies to add detail. I got the foam board at the dollar store near me so it's less expensive then eva foam a lot less stressful if you mess up hahaHaven't seen or heard of this material before. Intriguing. But due to it being a type of board, you will have to work on the detail of the weapons yourself. Am I correct? The joining of the boards would also be difficult due to it being the board and if you get the size or a difference between the weapons unless intentionally. Right?
Have you ever covered seams on the sides of the prop where you could see the layers? I'm thinking of trying kwik seal and seal how that works. I tryed the clay thing but it added a lot of weight and cracked super easy. I plan to go over it with plastic dip spary, do you thing that it thick enough to cover it? Or should I put foamies or a piece of foam board around the gun covering the seams?
Awesome thanks I always wondered, and that DMR looks amazingI'm glad you asked.........to cover up all of the layers, I used craft foam.......I am in the middle of painting my DMR and I used foamboard to build the body, craft foam to make the details and to cover any areas that showed the layered edges......I don't have a pic of that but I'll post one. The Foamboard is too thick and you will still see the edges of at least on slice of the FB. Use craft foam and you will hide everything. I used contact cement to attach the craft foam, hot glue will melt the Styrofoam core and ruin the piece. The same w/ the detail pieces. Contact cement.
Even added a scope and muzzle before I started painting. Be careful when building the ammo clip.....I made mine too close to size and didn't take in to account the added thickness of paint so I have to redo my ammo clip smaller in width and thickness. And yes that is the templates for a foamboard AR in the background.
