Hi everyone, I've been a member here since July 2013. I lurked around here for some time but finally decided to register to show you what I've been up to. So back in the beginning of june 2013 I decided to start my first spartan armor build going the way of pepakura-fiberglass-body filler. I think the best way to give you an idea of how it's coming along is with lots of pictures. In this thread you will find my work in progress shots as I slowly make my way to completion. I'm trying extremely hard to hold myself to a very high standard. No rough work will make the grade. So come in and check it out, your support is always welcome as well as any ideas or suggestions you may have. COMPLETED: -Spartan under suit (select pieces of motocross gear) -Halo 4 Recon Helmet -Halo 4 Mk.VI Torso -Halo 4 Mk.VI Boots CURRENTLY WORKING ON: -Shoulders -Hands/Gloves -Lower abdomen/ Butt plate -Shins -Thighs -Lower arms Materials used: Visor stencil: http://www.shop.deltaarts.pl/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=403 Body Fillers: -Bondo brand filler (for coating the inside of parts) -Evercoat Everglass with Kevlar (all major shaping of parts - superior to Bondo in every way) Epoxy Clay: -Apoxy Sculpt Paint in order used: -Rustolem primer (not that happy with how it comes out - needs sanding before further painting) -Rustolem Metallic paints (undercoat for that bare metal look) -krylon clear -Rustolem Gloss white -Rustolem American Accents Deep Blue -Testors model master arctic blue metallic (spray can & bottle) -Testors model master black metallic (bottle) -Testors model master silver metallic (bottle) -still deciding on clear top coat but will be a model master paint. To see all pictures related to this build in one place and full size please visit my Flickr by clicking the picture below Additionally I encourage you to read through this thread to see pictures in context Edits to thread of note: 9/1/2013 - I broke all the pictures links so I had to fix them and I cleaned up my first post to streamline the display of my project. 9/26/2013 - Moved all pictures to flickr, photobucket was trying to limit my bandwidth so I jumped ship. Flickr is a much better system anyway. I still need to switch over all pictures in the thread to Flickr links, till I do pictures will stay up on photobucket. 3/29/2013 - Finally got around to changing all pics in this thread over to flickr, my photobucket use is discontinued. Did general thread maintenance as well.
