    Pepakura Master Chief

    I found out about pepakura a while ago but didn't decide to try it out till just recently. This is my first pepakura build so I figured I'd post it on here. I'm probably going to resin it on Sunday and then fiberglass the inside on Monday. I'm using Robogenesis' normal detail model which is available here: http://halocostuming.wikia.com/wiki/Pepakura_File_Index

    Well I've fiber glassed it .....but also I've decided that it's too big (kinda late for that decision right? lol) so I've scaled the helmet down a few centimeters and I'm starting over

    Yeah I thought it did too. but after taking some more pics and seeing that it even looked big on my older brother I decided that it needed to be scaled down a little. Fortunately it's not a very detailed model so I can assemble another one pretty quickly.

    good start man, you should join us over at 405th.com if you plan on doing much Halo prop work...

    i would also suggest using flyingsquirrels hd mrk6... harder to fold, but the end product is so much better.

    Yeah I'm already a member over there, it's kinda funny actually Apparently I registered over there back in 2007 and completely forgot about it. And when the Admins opened registration the other day I was surprised to see that the user name "corby" was already taken. So I tried a "forgot password" with my old email address and found out I was already registered.

    Well right now I'm trying to get a full suit done by halloween but after that I'm planning on replacing some of the parts with higher res models (including flyingsquirrel's helmet)

    UPDATE:

    I've gotten my helmet resined, fiberglassed, and mostly sanded.
    Here's a pic of where I'm at now


    I think I need to get myself a dremel.

    Thanks

    I suggest building flyingsquirrels HD helmet. it'll take a little longer to build but in the long run there will be less sanding and it'll look alot nicer

    Well long time no update but now I've got a major one I used the good ol' mustard technique for battle damage. I just need to add some inner padding and a visor and it'll be finished.

    Not on this one. It's just my practice helmet. It's got alot of warping on it so I dont want to put too much more work into it. I decided to just use it to help me learn the whole process and experiment with paint techniques.

    Next year I'll be building an HD model that will be much nicer. It'll have the LEDs and a dual-visor.
