1st Build Halo Reach Foam Build (In Progress)


Got this done today. I added some details to it that weren't on it before spraying. Also added another layer for stability that is not pictured.

Heard a massive 'rip' then later found out what it was. Hopefully that doesn't happen again :eek:

I will attempt to add lights to this before I go on to priming the other chest piece that I made that was not as detailed.

I'm not sure how long these will last for me to walk in but they fit on my boots. I could have made the front part wider as they don't fit flat on the sides (it is pushing out a bit). I'm okay with it though for now at least.

Ngl realllllly fighting an urge to re-do some old pieces but I'm going to stay strong and not do anything.

I found myself already making new stencils for the chest.

Edit: Typo


I got around to doing a base coat of paint on these pieces.

Painting is fun!

I also patched up the sacrificial boots with some spackle, and then used plastidip again before painting. They seem to be good. I've noticed some unintentional rough spots after painting. I wonder if I can fill those in after this base paint of paint dries? :unsure: Not sure if it is even necessary.


Edit: Clarity


I managed to paint this today. I painted the parts that are taped black before painting the rest. I got scared because it looked really bad, I tried to sponge it up then paint over and it then got better.

Also, painting the parts black didn't seem to make a big difference from when it was black from plastidip. I guess next is doing 'silver' streaks for battle damage then 'black washing' it...(?).
