    Quick question, are you using the Dubean files or the regular ones? I notice there are multiple options for certain pieces...

    yeah I use dubeans unfolds they are the best

    as for this PM question

    "Quick question, what kind of glue do you use on your pepakura stuff? :

    I use hot glue.

    I cut all the pieces out in a sitting then put them together in another sitting with hot glue.

    oh dont be shy to ask questions in the thread. i'll answer them here so everyone can see the answer incase they had the same one.

    I'll be glad to help the best I can.

    Thanks Darth
    yes it's very unlikely. It isn't really my goal to get it done for the movie premiere as I really wanted to get it done for a convention by the end of May which is more realistic for me timewise.

    I have a small update. The Abs/spine is completed. Once these are resined. They will be bondoed and detailed and then cut apart into sections
    then each section will be backed in foam, then overlapped to achieve the accurate look and function.
    Using the compression method the foam will stop the paint from getting scratched so much when the abs compress from movement

    the cod piece is next

    Hey, so apparently 405th.com is down... Do you happen to have the leg and back files? I downloaded the wrong ones which just show the thing, they don't have the "data for development" aka the actual page prints.

    Update looks great, looking forward to the next one!

    EDIT: Site is back up... I grabbed the correct leg files and the back file.
    Thanks

    So, you're making two of these right? One for me?

    It's looking more and more amazing - it's got that bulky look that some of the armour seems to miss out on!

    That's wicked... About how many hours per day would you say you're putting in, and how long per piece of armor?
    Just trying to get a rough estimate of how long it takes.

    well I pep really fast, everyone is different. some parts take me an hour to cut and assemble others 2-3 hours and some 5-6 hours to cut and assemble. its depends on you and you're commitment and drive that determines the speed. I used to be lazy and pep a piece then chill out then go back. On and off I got no where. You need to find the zone when doing this.
    If you're cutting out a big part. Just cut the pieces out one day then assemble them the next day. This will teach you how to be patient

    you'll get very far with that method and not burn out

    Right and Left Thighs...Check!

    I have to make some serious custom supports before strengthening them though. They are wobbly at the moment.

    Shins next..

    I was kinda lazy and didn't start working on the Shins until a lot later that I wanted so I got only one shin done.

    I made some modifications and custom cutting and gluing after it was built because I usually do that to pepped parts to fine tune them for comfort that way I dont have to do it when its strengthened in plastic.

    I also shortened the knee cap area as I felt it was way to tall and it was overlapping the thigh too much and cut it to where it joined the bottom of the thigh opening slot made for the kneecap nicely.

    It does fit along with the thigh,

    Heres how they look joined together
