    Hello y'all!

    I've seen a few post of other people sharing their builds, so here I am adding my stuff ;) I actually don't have any questions regarding this project, I just want to share it.

    I am making the base out of pepakura. Then I will be adding fiberglass and epoxy, to make the armor durable. I have been thinking of making it our of foam at first, but foam is to leightweight and easy to deform, although it's not as heavy as epoxy. I have my boyfriend doing most of the fiberglass and epoxy stuff, as he already built 2 masterchiefs himself. :) But I definitly want to try doing that myself too.

    I am only uploading a few pictures here as thumbnails, mostly from the pepakura bases, as i don't want to overload the forum. But I am uploading all other related pictures in the gallery, if someone is interested :lol:

    The helmet here is already fiberglassed, sanded and I added filler.

    I will be editing this post over time, as to add my progress.
    By the way, my deadline is set for end of february, so wish me luck xD

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. And if you got any suggestions for me to make this even better, please tell me! I am always eager to learn new stuff!

    Greetings, Isa_chan

    Well done, your off to a very good start. Keep up the good work and take your time finishing. Keep filling and sanding until you have it to where you absolutely want it and are happy with it.

    Good luck! Your pep looks really good so far. Kind of ambitious to finish by Feb., but I'm looking forward to seeing how you work it out. I feel like you're the kind of person that can pull this off. Be sure to keep us posted!

    So nice, thank you for the extra motivation :D
    I know it's still a lot of work, but we want to attend a con with them so badly. We probably will end up with some all nighters right before the con starts xD but if we finish then that's worth it!

    Btw: I totally like your name xD
