Profession: IT guy, and father of 4 year old Twins

favorite part of halo: the awe factor that came from playing the campaign of halo 2 and halo 3. It felt like an epic game. Halo: ODST just didn't have that feel. Also the music of halo 2 and halo 3 felt 'epic'. ODST just didn't.
interest: armor making and molding.
"how come they didn't have cool toys like this when i was a kid??"

Anyways -- my buddy has vast expierience in all of the resin/bondo materials as he spent years in the auto-body profession -- and as a graphic designer I bring lots of papercraft experience and methods, as well as patience. I can also READ which helps a lot, because I have already gone through all of the tutorials after my first 1/2 helmet pepakura process. I tossed it, and started again. The Tutorials here are AWESOME and have already taught me a TON in the way of making these things. As I got farther along in the second paper helmet's process I realized that I had scaled it down just a little too much, but I saw it through to completion. I can get it on my head, but it is far too snug. Making lemons out of lemonade though -- we will be using it as a practice piece and it will be a fun prop to have around once it is done and painted, plus it is perfect for a younger kid, maybe we can give it to someone in the community who wants a sweet halo-ween costume. Anyways, I have just finished my Third helmet-pep from FlyingSquirrel's model which was considerably easier to build than the first two which were from a different model. I also scaled it correctly and it fits very well -- with lots of room to breathe for padding and such. I'll start a post with pictures soon.
