    Magnum and hopefully a Reach AR (MA37). I was making a basic backpack but may put it off and finish my modded Nerf Recon/MA37 instead. Were you making a sniper rifle?

    your templates are a god send, hoping to start making a marine that pilots one of the sabre's and helps 6 on the corvette, if you ever did make a template for the collar it would be appreciated but i think it might be hard cause everyones body shape is different meaning the basic template would have to be modified to fit, sounds like it would need to be scratch built to me. Great work on the armour by the way :)

    Hey Turtle, so sorry for the late reply...been busy getting ready for comic con, but I don't have templates for the Marine collar. I'll probably work on it sometime later since I really like the Marine Trooper variant. Regarding the knees, I need to make some changes then I'll let you know when I do make a few runs of them. Thanks for your interest in my work.

    Thanks Thorn!

    Thanks for the compliment and I'll post a new thread for the collar. I am planning to make a mold of my UNSC Trooper helmet so I can make a copy to modify it into the Marine helmet which is a closed helmet compared to the regular Army troopers. I'll post a new thread when the time comes.

    Here are pics of me in my finished armor post comic con meeting.

    TD2253 Member

    Yeah I agree with you on that, I don't think I'm ready to tackle a pepakura jetpack just yet lol! I guess the way I have it now would make me army trooper but I would love to do the marine trooper for sure.

    no problem, it looks like you have been a busy trooper. I ended up just making a rough template using the figure i bought, and i'm working on making the ammo pouches too. I would be more than willing to send them to you once i get them scanned

    Cool! Glad you got it started at least; would be cool to see your WIP pics of that. I would appreciate getting templates for the ammo pouches...thanks!

    here is what I have so far. all i have right now is craft foam, but im going to get some thicker stuff in a couple days. It seems a little big right now but that might change once I get thicker foam. My plan is to be able to convert my sean bradley odst to a reach odst before the anniversary so i can hang out at gamestop.

    oh and here is the sniper pouch i finished sewing together today
