Hey all I am back once again and this time hitting the mats hard. I been scaling and cutting and making the ODST armor i been figuring on for a while. I am making a Heavy ODST. After my comic con this weekend I am ready to pump out my armor and make this bad boy done by October 27th!

Awesome, can't wait to see the final product! I too am about to start making ODST armor (just gotta finish my brother's Reach build first), hoping to have it done in time for the Halo 5 release. Are you using Da Front Line Trooper's ODST templates or are you going another route?

Update:

Well i have gotten quiet a bit done on the armor so far. I am waiting on my strapping and release clips from amazon (seriously thinking on prime now)

But enough blah blah blah, I got to do all the chest assets and then I can finish the chest piece for dip and paint. Then the two shoulders....mind you one is ODST and the other is Mickey's.

Looking very nice! What do you plan to do for the helmet: Pep or foam?:)
I plan on foam. I did one in Pep and can't get it to scale right without needing to go to a bigger paper. Darn head is to big. but I wanna do the body because if i can not finish by halo 5 release night. I got a black military CAp that went with my ODST BDU's.

I got just to add damage and wear then these bad boys will be done. Also thanks to vshore, i am looking at elastic bands to have those shoulders not move.

Your build is looking really good dude. Your foam work is really clean. I love the detail on the torso.
Thanks man! i dont't feel as it is a clean as I want it, But this is my first foam build and that is what the mk 2 build will be. All new chest and just hoping to make it like some of the other amazing detailed foam builds.

So i finished both shoulders. But............I now have to redo my chest. the shoulder straps sit to high and I can not figure out how to fix it without doing some major hacking and the armor is already painted. So i am going to start making the templates for the new chest, but salvage all i can. Just makes me sad more then likely will not be ready but the 27th. oh well. I got cons next year lined up for it. like Dragon Con! and maybe my local con.

But pic update.
Mickey shoulder came out amazing. But the ODST shoulder was not fully dry on the glue and I popped it off. so i go to wait till 2mrw.....
