    Can any one help me? I'm trying to make an EOD costume for this July. Not much time I know. I'm having a hard time finding pepakura patterns for anything. All yhelinks I'm finding end up dead or on 4share and when I try down loading them I get something else including viruses. Is there someone who has allege patters that can help me?

    Jbowling1775, with my downloads that I have formerly took from the 405th and from those I have used from 4shared, I have found that yes that there are viruses that come with it. The best thing j can say (don't quote me on this, I'm just throwing out an idea and I'm not an expert of any means, but I know what I'm talking about) is having a software that will detect the viruses and cookies. Besides that, there are some good files that are offer here on the site in the file archive. I find those to be helpful. And like I said I'm just trying to give you some input. I hope this helps you. I hope to see your EOD build soon EVEN IF ITS JUST THE HELMET THATLL BE AWESOME!

    Happy peping

    I'm making an Emile build and I've found every part except his chest/grenades and the bicep pieces. If anyone has one or knows where I could find it that'd be great

    hello, I am a little stumped on what I need to do to access Pepakura and Cardboard Armor Stuck Thread Index I am new and I am trying to access the links to learn how to build foam armor, but every time I click on the link it tells me I can not access the link. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to go about accessing these links.

    registration is cancelled by admin so new members (me also) cannot access the old site. i'm sure they'll fix it soon. i'm also having some problems with material search here in finland. there is no bondo here but some other body fillers of course. but should i use polyester filler, glassfiber filler or epoxy filler? (only ones available here.). also about resin. i found epoxy resin, glassfiber resin, polyester resin and polyester glassfiber resin (all are expensive but which one would be best for this kind of use without it dissolving UHU glue).

    which card stock do people in europe use? i've searched those a bit and looks like there is only 90gsm available, then it jumps to 250gsm so i need to order online.
    thanks in advance! these are the questions i didn't find an answer.

    The heavy card stock we mostly use (US and other locations) is the 110 lb weight.....that translates to 200 gsm. 250 gsm isn't that far off the mark and would only be a drop thicker than normal. You might find it a bit harder to cut and fold, but the overall strength will be that much higher.

    And just as an FYI, Bigtony080808, Tinman, Cyzam, this thread was created as a reference point not as a request for help location. Also take note of the date of the thread which started in July of 2014.......Necro posting is frowned upon as it pushes more current and time relevant threads down the line.

    Welcome to the 405th get building!!!!
