I "black washed" my helmet a little too much and it turned maroon. Gave it another blast of metallic red

Your armor looks like Vacuum Form plastic. Is it?

Indeed it is! Well most of it :p
Very Cool. Outside of my Mark V and the old Richie's Armor Mark VI kit, and maybe the Rubies Supreme Chief, you never really see vacuum form plastic kits.

Did you sculpt your own Bucks? I used my reinforced and filled in fiberglass pepakura parts as my bucks for my suit.

Your Mark V is vacuum formed? That's amazing! I hope to make a full vacuum formed Mark V armor from CEA eventually, depends if Halo Infinite has something that steals my attention (a full Mark V gen 3 variant???) :p

So for the Mark VI suit, some masters were made from scratch, some using rubies' pieces as a base to build the master off of (masters have been destroyed for obvious reasons, so screwing up isn't an option!). I originally had no plans to go this route, but then Halo Outpost became a thing and there was just no way I could make the Mark V in time. After going through this build, I'm definitely a vac form armor fan, I just find it more exciting and manageable than foam and especially fiberglassing :lol:

My thread is from 2011, so, about two versions of the Forum ago, so most of the pictures are gone, but:

Here are some on FB:

I actually still do have all my bucks/masters in a storage tote, I just don't have access to a Vac table anymore.
