    You could try contacting the modeler or unfolder and ask them to save it in pep designer 2 for you or just try to re-download 3 and hope it works

    If you're looking for the HD piece, it's listed there as cod plate but no pic.

    Hey guys! The armour piece im making at the moment covers the whole of my shin all the way around, and i have to be able to get it on and off. Thats easy while its just cardstock, as it has some movement that allows me to slip it on and off when im trying it out.

    My problem lies when i fibreglass it. It wont be flexible, and im wondering what to do as i wont have enough room to fit my heel through when putting it on.

    Any ideas? I mean whats the best way to get around it?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew the norwegian word of cardstock, I tried google translate and scoured the web through google, and come up with nothing.
    So if anyone knows this and would take their time to post it, It would be greatly appricieated.

    If a norwegian (like you) doesn't know the word for "cardstock", I don't think us non-norwegians know it either. :) Instead, go for the paperweight. Look for one that has a weight of at least 175 gsm (grams per sqiare meter). All papers are listed with gsm values.

    Thank you for replying, will look into the weight before buying paper to use for pepakura then ^^

    Does anyone know what the proper technique is for hardening a sliced cardboard weapon? I want to finish up my DMR soon, but am unsure how to go about it.

    Rather stupid quoestion, but, Can normal paper pep be resined/fiberglassed?
    By budget doesn't like buying the umm... whatever the thicker paper was called as in here it's 1.2 euros for 2 A4's of it >.<

    Hey, I'm pretty darn new, and I was wondering both; When should I get started if I plan on going to a convention around May 20th, and How much money (roughly) would it take to make a full Spartan armored body with an ODST helmet?
  18. Ral Partha

    Ral Partha Sr Member

    Yes but I wouldn't recommend using regular paper for pepping. Regular paper doesn't have enough heft to support its own weight and resining will probably make it worse. You can probably glue a cardboard sheet behind each piece but it's more trouble than it's worth.

    It's never too early to start. For starters, read the stickies. Looks like you haven't read any of the stickies in the Noob forum. Start with this one. This will give you an idea about the cost. Then read the stickies in the Pepakura and Cardboard Armor section.

    Hi all
    After many years of medieval re-enactments and costuming i want to attempt a full set of MkVI armour. I am very experienced in general paper/card crafting so putting the pep files together is no real hardship. The one thing i seen to be having a difficult time with is scaling the various armour parts to fit me.
    I have now completed my second chest harness (the first was far too big, funny how a slight miscalculation of 10mm can produce a monster) but im happy with the second.
    Im now moving onto the shoulder and forearm pieces.
    The shoulders seem to be pretty much correct but the forearms are giving me real problems. The wrist hole seems too small and the rear end could probably fit both my arms in them. I think my problem is the initial full figure body picture i used to work out my scaling ratios.
    Does anyone have a full body picture of completed armour that I can use for scaling the individual pieces? Im currently using a cgi picture of the MkVI armour coloured silver with a blue background which i found somewhere on the site.
    Any help would be very much appreciated

    thanks for the picture Ral Partha, that looks much better for scaling.
    Finished the pep model for my left shin today (managed to get the scale right for that first time)

    Does anybody have a full sized Mk.V-B Halo Reach armor picture? I'm making armor for someone and they want the standard N6 suit.
