Well I would say you have more than enough time on your hand to get it done from what you already built. TTCon is only 4 hrs from me........If I have mine built by then........I might consider a drive. The 14th though.....My actual dead line is the NYC Comicon. Post which con your going in the Colonial forum 2016 events. Tring to get a handle on who is going where and when.

Been a while since i updated but major progress has been made. I am nearing completion of my armor. All i have left is to print the shins out and finish the long wait and do touch ups. and then rush to make a prop. I just sprayed and rough painted my Thighs tonight, I need to buy some super glue and make my strapping to help hold the thigh in place and then fix the belt. Other then that I can't wait to have the finished product.

Looking Great! I was afraid to use color in mine (besides grey) and seeing all these other builds is making me want to add a little. What were you planning on using for your undersuit? I'm also working on an ODST (Assualt rifle/rookie's style of armor).

So. It is done. My suit is constructed. I will be painting and doing as much finishing as possible this week. I got the last shin smoothing out while i paint and detail the other one and get ready for the thighs to be painted. Minor details over all and I will have pics of the good at Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira. I am going for a surprise revile I been working so hard that I think a year later I will surprise everyone. So I will give ya the goods then but for now.

I was looking at just throwing some BDUs under my armor. I've seen some other pictures from the Halo 3 build up trailer (the live action one) that show something looks like BDUs with a wrapping of some kind on the knee and elbow joints. It almost looks like an Ace bandage.

I found a BDU style pant last year and still fit into. But seeing as I was hot in just a shirt and normal clothes last year. I am gunna need the compression shirt for that little wicking and cooling. But I will eventually sew some other stuff on it so i looks like a undersuit kind of deal. The build is complete yes but I want this things to be a best as I can make it before i start a Spartan.

Yeah. Heat is going to suck, but I do have a cooling shirt set up ( closed circuit, ice cooled shirt) so that should make it at least bearable, though I'll need to visit my room often to reload ice.

Well Con came and went I took a good week off but my mind didn't improvements for mobility and improving areas of the suit are starting. Also going to work on the props to make this Heavy Trooper live up to his name. So keep an eye out and a ear to the ground. I will have a good year of building. Just gunna take things slow. Gotta replenish my supplies and buy contact cement and more web strapping and elastic strapping.

Here are the goodies.

I'm just starting on my ODST and wow, I need lessons from you!!! I fielded what I had at Dragon Con with mutlicam black BDUs, which worked surprisingly well in the heat, the cooler weather this year helped too. I can't wait to see more pictures!
