So a few notes as of now: I started out using the tacky craft glue, it holds well and stays plastic enough to get parts into position before hardening. I recently switched to a super glue gel pen. I can use less glue and it quickly adheres and I dont have to worry about pulling it out of position; I think I will be staying with the super glue from here on out.
On folding: my very first attempts at Pep were actually on a test prop pistol (actually an M6R Reverse throwing Pistol from the Halo CE Cursed Mod). On that, I was just folding on the lines by hand, and it shows; the lines are not very accurate or crisp. My next piece, one of the hand plates, I used a clay-molding tool as what I now now as a bone folder. Unfortunately, the tool was so thick, that it was hard to accurately place scores as well as being rather soft plastic that I had to keep sharpening to the point that it had changed shape. From here on out, I am using the back of my X-acto knife to score the paper and it is working great.

Do you have pictures of this magnum?

So I butchered the first attempt at that last part of the forearm, here is the start of my second attempt

I printed this one on plain printer paper and deleted the joint IDs. This has made it much easier to work with, but I do have to be more careful as the paper likes to tear very easily. My plan is to finish this piece entirely, and make a duplicate using resin casting for the other arm as this piece is mostly just mirrored over

It was my choice to use the UHD pep models, so I'm sticking to it.
