Foam ONI Operative/ODST Armor!

I have been playing Halo 3 ODST on the MCC, and I like Dare's armor, so I want to make my own version of course! Like always, I am a foam junkie, so it will be an all foam build, and it will be a custom/concept style of her armor. Some pics will describe it better.

This is a concept that uses the ODST Torso with the lower part of the ODST shoulders. So that's my base model and inspiration. And believe it or not I'm not a big fan of the Recon bucket, so I will use my favorite, Halo Reach Commando! Yes, yes I know it's a Spartan helmet, but check this out.

Cool, right? I will even adopt the Ma37 suppressed for it too, I might get some flak, but hey, my build but anyway that's the current plans, time to build!

And here is another concept of Dare, which is what I am building, except the bucket.

I will be using mostly ODST pepakura files and unfolding Dare's assets (that sounded dirty) to get her cool looking shoulder straps! Also a better unfold of her "stomach plate" the current one is too simple for my tastes. So just imagine this but with a Commando bucket, and a suppressed Ma37(cough M40 nerf)

Haven't had the proper weather but today it's like 60ish, so got alot done. I attached the base torso and just finished the spine plate. Waiting for more foam to come in to do the chest piece and ab plate, soooo here some progress of what is done.

Oh I also deleted the collar that was on the torso and made a custom collar that fits closer to my actually neck to prevent my bucket from "clipping" the original collar. And here is the spine plate.

And next I will attached the spine plate to the torso.

Awesome work as always zach!! Love how clean it is. Also pro tip, you can upload the pictures via thumbnails you can click on so it doesn't take up the whole page of scrolling. and then you can also click the next or back arrows while viewing.

Here is a prototype for the weird green dome.

And here is an ornament I plan to use, i got two half pieces to experiment with, maybe paint one green and try green lights on the other.

Then here is some pieces of the torso itself.

I finished up the "torso" piece, I'm satisfy with it, so next is the chest, working on unfolding it, the current one is not beefy enough for me, but here is progress of the torso and then the finished product.

Anyway that's the completed, I got 2 ornaments, I'm going to paint one and light up the other and see which one I like. Unfold of the chest piece is almost done, just making it easier for foam.

Alright, got V2 of the chest plate done-ish, here is the progress pics.

And all of that turned into this with help with my favorite sanding brick of all time.

And the chest looks good but it's missing a like a half cylinder thingy, I post a pic of it in a minute. But here is my progress so far.
