Here it goes,

I've been working on this armor for the past two weeks. Never really got around to uploading all the photos until now. After Animate Miami my fuel for building skyrocketed. My plan is for Megacons costume contest to do Red vs Blue as my entry. I already have the blue armor so now to make the red one..mmwaahahaha.
My goal was to have the H4 Infiltrator armor done withing 2 weeks, and happy to say i was able to meet that goal (lucky me). Besides the helmet, this entire armor was made using only the following reference pictures. no machine to cut my foam, no lazer cutting, no 3D printing, just good ol fashion hand work.

These are my reference pictures for the lower half.

Killer Foaming man. I am interested in the helmet on how that will be once you get that done.

Man everyone's response to the armor is just amazing lol. Thank you guys so much for showing love and I really hope this armor turns out good. So for MegaCon I'm planning on doing Red vs Blue for the costume contest. So the infiltrator armor will be red since I already have the blue armor.
Took some quick poses with my friend Dan to have an idea what both armors look like side by side. Of course mine isne finished yet though.

Two quick questions: How do you keep the codpiece thingy from sticking out?

And: Uhh... How are you planning on being able to see?

Well the COD piece is actually attached to the front torso armor. It usually stays on right because my shoulders support the shape of it. Plus I know of doesn't look like it but the front is heavier than the back so the armor doesn't fall.

2nd question: well I'm not making the helmet In the reference photos. I'm making the Deadeye helmet. It actually has a pretty good line of sight.

Magnum Done!!

Just finished the Magnum. It came out pretty good, I know I could've made the lines a lot straighter... I blame it on the Cuban coffee haha.
