Hey,

yesterday evening i thought i try something out.

So i took a piece of pvc rigid foam and started. It is a plastic like balsawood.

With paper i wasn´t so successful and the result was not good (i have no pepakura skills for tiny things yet...)

Here are the first pics of the first evening, i will go on today with the hand pieces and after that try some undercoat and color. Resin is not needed with this hard foam.


1. i searched a nice knife pic, seached outline lines with photoshop and printed it out

2. with a knife i cutted through the paper to see the lines of the shape, outline with some pen

3. cutting is easy.. when the material is thin, when it is thick like this needs a little more power but works :)

4. afters some more cutting and sanding it looks better

5. hand pieces are missing.. lets make some

Perhaps i can finish the hand pieces today and start with the undercoat, will post more pics when it goes forward ;)

My first soft foam cutting looked like this if you want to laugh :) (if your imagination is not big enough, i wanted to make hand pieces of master chief! :D )

That knife looks awesome! Would have never thought to use flat PVC for anything, but you may have just inspired me to try =)

Superb job!
Looks like you've got a pretty steddy hand when it comes to rounding up edges.
