    Great job so far. If you don't mind my asking, where did you find patterns for the knee armor? I've cut out everything for my armor build only to realize that I am missing patterns for knees! Oops. Don't know how I'm going to protect those.

    @cyberpatriot Hi man! i live in sweden and we dont have the normal building materials that people usualy work with here. So ive had a little trial and error to get the right stuff to build with. for the pepping im using the thickest paper my printer kan print and of course usual sissors . Because i live in a small apartment i am unable to figerglass the finished peps so i use polyutherane harts to harden it with. Then we dont have bondo in sweden but we have a similar thing called plastic padding thats also used for autobody repairs. They come in a lot of different kinds and ive found the one called: "lättspackel" to be the best one to shape and sand. I use a small plastic spatula to apply the padding and then i have a small kitchen knife to gett the rough shape out of it, later i sand with black and beckers mouse sander, and for small parts a dremel of course! the last sanding i do by hand with 120 grit paper and a lot of reggaetunes i my ears . I also have begun working alot whith super sculpey and that works good for me. ive tried using milliput but it doesnt do it for me.

    hi guys! a little update. I have made a decision to finish the helmet before i do anything else otherwise im going to go crazy! so i did about 12 hours of work on it since last time and im starting to get there! i primed it and discovered som bits and bobs left to fill and sand but its not much. have a look and see what you think of it. im really sorry for the crappy pics. when its ready i will get a better camera and take some nice fotos. i promise

    This is looking great. I'm glad I'm not the only one that wants to scratch build his entire costume. Keep up the great work and keep the pictures coming.

    Wow, great work so far. Just read through from the beginning, it's been said before but you have really good pep skills!
    I'm a couple days from starting my own, I am using Fierfek's files as I want to build from scratch as much as I can, (and there great files!). You've done some great work here, can't wait to see more

    Hey wow thanks for being so kind it really helps to keep my slow a** on the work . If your thinking about doing fierfek's files there is some things on it that is pretty off. the rangefinder you dont even need its not accurate. the cheeks you should modify yourself with the help from some ref pics and the rangefinder holder thingy is not right ether. Ive seen some really great stencils on this site that i would use if i make another one! try those instead! and go with the exact same procedure as if you would pep a bucket i will keep an eye on you for your scratch build

    Very nice work, especially the way you're able to break the process down and give reasons to your choices and stages.

    Thanks! It's a pretty cool feeling to build these things from scratch and have them turn into your favorite shelf topper. I look forward to seeing yours come together as well. Until then, enjoy the build!
