    I thought I would get back into building, used to do pep files now onto foam... pointers and Tip greatly appreciated :)

    So I thought I would go Recon from "Reach" I've always liked the styling plus It will blend well with how I want the build to be and the direction im gonna take it in.

    Lt Jaku, Thanks buddy

    when doing anything...I am never satisfied with "That's o.k ish"

    I think your right, it is going to take a while, I have to fill, seal, Resin, Prime, and Spray

    Very nice work! What is the 4th picture of? I really like that piece.

    And what did you use to burn the "screw head" pattern in the first picture? Those turned out really cool.

    Pernicous Duke,

    The fourth picture is the Visor attachment for the Recon variant helmet. I went against the norm of plonk that on there its an attachment...

    I wanted to go for a more "Industrial Bolted on and its staying on look"

    the screw marks, in all honesty turned out compared to my second shoulder turd... I realised that with a 40w Soldering Iron and then from
    amazon purchased some wood engraving attachments...the attachments fit the iron. you only have to touch the foam and boom.
    I went for this look because 800 from now still using a screw driver "Doubtful"...and this looked the Beefier look

    Spartan 43 I doubt your 'doubtful',.... but I might go as far as saying it may not be the same exact tool....but would still be considered/referred to as a screwdriver.....even if it were sonic. giphy-downsized (6).gif
