    Hi !

    I'm going to start my second foam armor, Spartan Jerome from Halo Wars 2. I downloaded the files of the MkIV armor to help me creating my own templates. I think I will make the torso first, which is ,in my opinion, the hardest part. More info soon. :)

    Thanks Sean ! Some parts are a bit failed so I'm gonna try to "save" these at the sanding step.
    The torso is now finished, I'm moving on the helmet now. :)

    Thanks Sean and Ninja, I try to make clean work but I still need a lot of practice. Unfortunately, the helmet is too big, I'm gonna restart it tommorow. :(

    I can sympathize w/ your predicament. I've had my fair share of mis-sized helmets.

    I remember what happened to you, you made something like 4 or 5 tries. I did another test but this was too small, I think this time with a 230 mm width and a 255 mm height it should fit.

    Lets not go there......painful trip down helmet memory lane..........But good luck on your build. From your build thus far, your foam-smithing is pretty dam good.

    It was 8. (Duke says as he kicks Dirt down the lane) But the important thing is that he finished. :)

    Your foam skills are pretty great! I hope I can get up to that level soon. I think it will take a few test pieces though.

    BTW, you qualify to join a regiment if you would like. You can just post here asking to join one (we'll need to know your location)

    I almost finished the second helmet, it's the right size this time but I think I made it a bit asymetrical, I'll try to upgrade that one but later, I don't want to make another helmet...

    Do you guys have any idea about how I can stabilize the left side where it's going a bit to the outside ?

    I'm not sure I understand the question. What part is going a bit to the outside?

    On the right side of the front picture of the helmet, the little part made with white foam is not parallel to the line which is on the upper part of the helmet.
    I'm afraid that if I let it that way, it's could be very annoying when I will glue the visor, after the wood glue and paint steps.

    Well, whatever you do, don't seal anything yet. If it's the piece I'm thinking about, the little part in the corner for the visor, correct? You might be able to hit it with some heat, or a support like a Popsicle stick or something to support it from the inside. You might need to separate it from the bottom and realign it, or in a worst case scenario you may have to redo the whole stupid part! But in my opinion it isn't as bad as I feel like you think it is.

    Thanks Sean for your quick answer ! :) I will try the popsicle thing and if I don't manage to get it right, I'm gonna do again that little part.
