Were about 80 -100 bucks in so far, and we only got hand plates and forearms done and painted we start the halo3 armor tuesday oct, 2 this year - we estimate around 400 -500 dollars for completion expense . Were taking our time plus with work and kids, We really need to pace ourselfs!! :tutu:
Sorry for double posting but DAMNIT I REALLY WANT TO POST SOME PIX OF WHAT it looks like soo far!! I thank adam and chris for our design of MC halo armor siut!!! As soon as we get both arms, chest, back plate, helmet, IM POSTING IT!!! oh BTW were a noob biulding team!!
well my sorta suit is pretty good i got alot of praise from making it and wearing it and how it looked i was gonna fix it up so it may cost me another 20 dollars but my suit how it is right now cost me 32 dollars to make
Hmm lets see , spent $40 on cardstock (couldnt get scaling right ) , $50 on fiberglass resin so far , $30 on fiber mat , 2weeks of time just to find out after fiberglassing suit it was just a bit to small to fit , so starting all over again with slyfos pep and gonna try again still need paint and bondo , leds, fans and visors,so guess if ya mess up like i did a couple times could cost alot.
Wow I read some of these and im just amazed at the costs, I never really expected it would be so much. What are you making them out of? Gold?
Im thinking of making a large collection of weapons for just about 50 bucks. If I decide to make it out of clay and make a mold then craft plastic MA5C I could mass produce and sell them, but Id rather not invest that much moolah into it.
But seriously, what brings it up to the thousands? I know resin shouldnt cost that much, neither should fiberglass and visor. So whats so exspensive about those suits?
