MY first build guys so go easy.

Just to point this out from the go, I am not going for 100% accuracy. I just wanted something I can hold with my master chief suit after I have built it :)

I have build an iron man costume (foam) before but for some reason this takes so much longer :(

I have to thank a few members on here for the help and I got ideas from here and there. So thanks guys for the help :)

To start with. I had the template printed out

I can't believe how big this gun was!!

I got the idea in making this out of cardboard but changed my mind as I wanted something abit more rigid so I cut the template out onto hardboard

I then used cardboard to bridge the gap as this is bendable and I can bend it into shape and rondo it at a later date to strenglhen it.

I wil be using foam sheets like foamy (I think that is what it's called in the US) for most parts and EVA foam for other rised parts :)

Yeah that was me. Sorry, I started that thread to ask questions about the build. I thought I will start a new one as this is actually building. please merge threads if that is a problem.

Dude this is looking awesome :] I especially like how you kept the kid's play house in that picture with the cov lol.
Really good work with that LED plate though, looks pretty damn sweet.

Thanks for the compliment :)
I have just finished spraying primer on today. I will get some photos and hope I will get some time tomorrow to spray it up. If not then it will have to be the weekend :(

Hey, glad to see you got your project started. It's looking pretty sweet so far. I especially like the added electronics, that ammo counter looks sweet.
