Hey everyone, so I guess this is it. My latest work in progress. Been holding this one in my back pocket for a bit. But I've got one helmet almost completed and couldn't wait ......... and a little nudge from PerniciousDuke I had recently completed my very first build for Halloween last year. It was the H3 MKVI. ( well almost complete - I never did finish the boots). Anyway my 2 boys and their best friend were quite jealous I showed them up on Halloween. So they asked me to build them some armor. So typical dad response ya no problem I have a whole year!! Well here I am 1/2 a year or more later and I don't have much to show. At some point here (sorry I lose track of time easily) I picked up a 3D printer. I won't go on with my whole learning how to 3d print story. I'll just say it's not as easy as I had initially thought. So first I'll start with the helmets. I am hoping to knock out the helmets and chests first. I think these will be the most time consuming so I wanted them out of the way. So this is what we've got so far......These won't be super detailed as I'm very new to the modeling aspect of the 3d printing. Plus I'm really going to be strapped for time building 3 sets of armor. But overall I think these are turning out much better then my first build. Here are the helmets - We have the H5 Deadeye almost completed needsthe secondary red and some weathering then lights padding visor and so on and so on......so pictures And then the H5 Teishin this is all printed and assembled needs seam work and a lot of sanding. Originally this came put way larger then anticipated. But I think it'll be ok not too bobbleheadeshhss(something like that). I'll get a photo up with someone wherein it at a later date. And then.....helmet #3 H5 Warmaster pretty much ready to be scaled and cut for printing...(sorry for the cellphone pic of s computer screen but I'm doing this post on my phone). CIO chest and tech suits Anyway that's it so far. I'd also like to thank everyone here for all of the files, the community and the inspirations. Thank you the 405th.... Phewwww i guess first post out of the way. Sorry for the long read folks there's a lot more to the story but I think that's enough for the first post. Plus everyone here I'm sure is well aware of the ups and downs of costume building.
