So I've started my first ODST armour build, luckily my background is in Industrial design so shouldn't be too much of an undertaking. Im using the Rookie file by Rundown as a base for my build.
Yeah I'll probably cut the hole after resining but before the fibreglass. that way its still rigid and i can cut it pretty easily still.You might find it easier to cut the hole now as when its fiberglassed it is much harder. If your head almost fits through now, perhaps removing 1 "ring" might be enough.
Yeah Ive got an army surplus store 10 minutes from me so I can get one for about 60 NZD. Might check ebay but with shipping included might be better to just by it from a retailer here.Ooohhhh one of the more detailed files huh? Awesome! An airsoft vest is a smart idea- they can be inexpensive as well if you look at the right places like ebay's gigantic amount of sellers from china.
A cape/hood could be really cool, it's unique to say the least. Looking forward to it!
Lets hope!! the helmet should only take me another two or three weeks depending on how busy I am but the rest should come quickly together if im lucky.Yes the airsoft vest would definitely be a nice touch
the colour scheme is up to u
and ya weathering would make it all come together but im sure the end result will be epic
I havent played Destiny myself but yeah it does abit The hunters do look dope I must say but Ive always loved that kind of aesthetic in the stuff Ive built. Heres one of my drawings from around a year ago which i guess Im kinda going off.Your sketch with hood/headscarf looks dope. It kinda reminds me of the Hunter from Destiny. Yes? No? Am I looking into too much?
Was thinking I might keep a rifle on a sling or maybe have a thigh mounted smg. Wasn't going to have mine carry grenades but im sure it could be done easily with either magnets or a clip of some kindWho those sketches are awesome it looks very detailed
Although here is a thought I had about the costume. Do u plan on attaching grenades or weapons on the belt or back cause I've though about it myself for my costume like Velcro or a some type of clip
AHAHA I just noticed that, its one of the small holes i was using to check sizing in the mirror lol. Im thinking Ill scratch the visor I get with a needle and make it look like cracks in the glass nowLooks great so far......the helmet is very ominous though..........like a bullet through the visor, head shot insta-kill!!!!
Its less me having patience with layering and more me not wanting to sand a whole bunch, im usually sanding from 9-1 every day so the less of it the better for me haha.I agree with Dirtdives. You're doing some solid work here! Your patience is really showing with the many layers, which is a good thing! I'd be the kind of guy to just splat a bunch on there and call it a day after sanding
