    I've Just started my first EVA foam build.
    I created a paper model out of the templates I print off to check the sizing it seems to be all good.
    as I build I'm hoping to get a few tips. As I have only just started I will only have the paper model up but i will post as frequently as possible. I am a high school student so I don't expect to get to much do fast and there will be long pause between work.
    If you've seen this please point out any mistakes I've made so I can fix them. I look forward to building this. Thank you

    Hi there! It looks good so far. I'm curious what type of paper are you using? Printer paper?

    When you get to the foam portion of your build, a couple of pointers I've learned along the way:
    Keep your blade sharp, keep your blade straight, and practice on scrap pieces before making a difficult cut (sharp curve or bevel).

    Good luck and look forward to seeing your progress!

    Another tip is a metal ruler is your friend. Very helpful in the straight cuts.
