    WORK IN PROGRESS

    Had to restart my chest. Just wasnt happy with it. This time around I am scoring all lines both valley and mountain folds with extreme caution. Therefore, I thought I would finally begin piecing it together posting progress pictures here. Ill put in some Helmet pictures as well. Ive nearly finished the helmet though. Just need to seal in the breathing tubes and their connections. Then attatch all the bits and pieces.

    *puts on nerd glasses* That's not possible, you are not able to wear glasses with any full face helmet in FO3! Haha, just kidding, really great helmet, I love it. I'm going to keep an eye on this project.

    Never resin right be fore night time you ll regret it when your sanding moths out of you armor for hours


    Oh I've learnt the hard way not to do that.... ROFL It was only a bondo/rondo and painting test piece but still. Very wise advice

    Ya I learned the hard way as well but this was like a moth frenzy. Middle of summer in Oklahoma and they are every where. I actually thought of putting another layer or two of resin to cover them up

    Eva foam

    I litterally just hung up the phone getting prices for foam. A single sheet of EVA Foam 1.1 metres by 2.2 metres is priced at $97.50 australian dollars. That seems way too F***ing much. What prices have you guys seen it at?

    im not quite sure on my metrics but in america we can buy a pack of four 3 ft my 3ft sheets for around $19.98 USD which would come out to 18.52 AUD. you might check out your local fitness stores and ask them if they have foam floor mats for sale.

    Fitness mats. Never would have thought of that. Thanks for the heads up. Now all I have to do is get all the components to build a foam cutter I saw once.

    Floor mats huh? Never would have thought of that. Thanks for tip. + 5 internet's to you sir. I saw a home made foam cutter once. I'm gonna try to make from memory. I'll post pics of the attempt. Hope I don't set fire to anything lol.

    I feel the need to appologise for my lack of progress here. I got a lot of stuff to deal with at the moment and not a lot of work stuff leaves me completely drained with no impulse to continue working on papercraft. I got some good time to myself this weekend so it should be awesome progress posted then.

    Yeah, paper craft is a pain. But it dose get a bit easier the more you do it. :) You should really keep in mind how you're going to wear/attach these pieces. because they don't get along too well with each other.

    Good luck on your build!

    It's not so much that papercraft is a pain, although sometimes it can be lol. Im using your files too roadwarrior lol. I run them through pep designer and rearranged the pieces slightly to fit them for australian standard A4 size paper. Using 200 Gsm paper for it too. I like your files they are easy to follow. Cheers for that by the way.

    I have made quite a bit of progress. But unable to upload pictures at the moment unfortunately. I have a thigh piece and an arm piece. The thigh piece has a coat of resin on it. But may be too big. I need to complete more to see size comparisons between the components. The pictures will be uploaded as soon as i can.

    getting there slowly but things are starting to normalize for me again so I can focus on my paper-craft again. Just wondering if anyone else is dressing up for Halloween parties, but im going dressed as a 14th century foot knight with full 14Guage steel armour. We are all meeting at a mates place then walking to the closest pub for drinks. This is either going to be absolutely hilarious or the TRG (Tactical Response Group0 boys are gonna throw us out...... But something for the kids to giggle at if i ever have any ROFL
