I'm sure if someone spent hundreds of man hours on a pep suit, it would be just as nice, but the person would need to be very skilled with filling and smoothing to get everything just right.joshua61991 said:I have seen both pepakura and molded armours on here and the pep never seem to look quite as good. Is this because it just isn't as good looking or is it that detailing on the pepakura models usually aren't as ellaborate?
Thanks for the post Mobeus, But I cant view the pics. Every time I try I get that wonderful error message:Mobeus said:It most definately can. The only good example of it I can think of right now is what Murakumo is currently doing.
Check his work out. As of right now that is the best looking pep helmet so far, at least in my oppinion.

My grandfather was an Auto body and engine man he used to say, "Devil is in the details." He showed me that with enough attention to detail and time you can make just about anything.Toftt Nightmare said:Yeah its possible but would take a great deal of time. If you follow the steps correctly and put a great deal of time into being careful with the Resin and glassing as long as you do a good detailed paint job the Pep armor should look great.
He basically hit the nail on the head.AoBfrost said:With lots of resin or bondo body filler and lots of money you can make a suit that looks just like a molded one. Otherwise, with just pep, resin, glass, paint, and 100 dollars, you can make something 80% accurate.
How much does a good electric dremel cost? I have 200 dollars to spend on my suite, just that I need to buy a dremel and printer.AoBfrost said:If your going the "I dont have much money, help plz, I wanna be spartan for halloweeeen" way, your screwed, if you go the "I have 200-300 dollars what materials should I buy, yes i have a dremel, yes I am experienced" way, then you should be good.
The scale of your suit is perfect WAY TO GO!!!! Very awesome!!!Toftt Nightmare said:Yeah its possible but would take a great deal of time.
