I've been building my stuff out of foam for a while then I moved to resin for the helmets. I'm trying to make the armor and the rest of everything just from photos.

I got a MK of my prototype done on Sunday and I’m currently trying to reload my odst helmet as well, but on the good side I got a light hooked up in the in side which makes the lense go from opaque to clear. Sorry about the bad photo on the image for the body armor I couldn’t get better lighting.

Also, the armor is going to be a bit off from the game because this a mobility type build, so it's going to be as close as possible to the game, but the armor has to let me run at full speed and crouch and do push ups like a real suit.

I'm going to attempt the same with my build but I'm gonna start with the files accurate to game as best I can. From what I have been looking at it shouldn't hinder mobility too terribly. My bigger worry is the armor staying attached while running and whatnot.

that's why I'm full freehanding and testing every individual piece at a time like right not I'm going to be working on the chest piece and i have to make the decision to either use a foam made vest for looks or an airsoft vest for mobility.

also are you talking about the files that the 405th have or some other files?

Yes, I am using the files from the armory. So far they gave been pretty good. I'm also doing pep rather than foam.
oh ok, yeah I just saw the helmet you have it looks good, also props to you for using pep I can never get it that durrible hence why i use foam and why im free handing it instead of using the templates because i need mobility for running and durribility for other stuipid stuff, the template just seemed like it had too many parts to worry about getting dented or destroyed.

YES! I was going to tell you the info in it is super helpful for figuring out the mobility aspect. I have been reading it and it talks about how the armor is connected to allow for bending in the knees (for example) and similar stuff like that. I also found that a lot of pieces I thought were hard were actually soft which will help with mobility. It made tier 3 really hard to reach, but it also answered a lot of questions!

yeah, it's great I can't wait to get working this weekend on how to employ this to more reasonable type materials. this is going to be even more fun than before because of the high amounts of detail I now have.

so I've decided to make a leather with cloth sewed to it upper bodysuit for the upper torso for durability and mobility. woooooo i have to do more prototyping, but I digress this will be fun no matter what

boy was I wrong I've been looking over the images on the pdf for almost a week now and I've decided for that I'm going to use the templates on the 405th form and just adjust and reinforce them for my self, I tried and I failed to make this on my own, but I know my limits and in the end, I just want to be an ODST

Acepilotzero never give up. I made a total of 5 helmets before I had a decent foam one. Then Ashuraa and Kusak printed my Dutch. But I’m going to make another foam one one day. You’re just learn brotha. You need anything, just ask. We are going to help you get to your goal. So brush the dirt off trooper and get back at it!! Check the tutorials and I even say get on the discord. From experience this place has so much knowledge it blows ones mind.

Troopers for life buddy!
