Thanks! I will try and build H1 marine armor out of metal(most likely a light-gauge steel), and couldn't find any pictures.
But I'm not just saying "OMG I'm gonna have the kewlest armorz everz!" and never get it done, or not do it right. I plan on first making cardboard versions of all the pieces to get the correct dimensions, and going over each step again and again and again. If anyone has any tips, please do not hesitate to share them.
I'd rather free-hand it, really. I mean, Pepakura's great and all, but it just seems like "here ya go, just fold and glue per our instructions!"(not that I have anything against Pepakura users...I've seen your stuff, and it looks great!)
Anim8or= takes two days to learn and thakes years to master, but can't render very well. Great modeler.
Blender= takes years to learn and even longer to master :evil: , Horrible modeling. Great animating and rendering.
I have a suggestion. Model in anom8or, and do everything else in blender.
