I've got to do it yet. It's quite a tricky design to model and ensure it'll be strong and build friendly at the same time. Time will tell.
I will finish this armor now. LOL!
I'm waiting on a friend to draw up some blueprints of the RC armor and helmet. Then I'll start it.
I've been working on this now, when time allows, for the last few days. I have to say that so far it is the second most difficult pepakura design I have attempted, but I love it. I even went out and bought some quick set glue. I have a large portion of the top dome done now. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Fantastic! The dome is the most difficult, mainly because of all the faces. Though it gets easier as you work down.
Can't wait to see it.
I managed to get some more fibreglass on mine yesterday, I'm hoping to be able to get some bondo onto it today if the weather picks up.
Can't wait to see your results after the fg and bondo.
I really, really like this new glue. I got a "system" down thats working out really well and seems to be moving faster. I am using hemostats (3 sets total) to hold the parts after gluing a few at a time. By the time I get the glue on the fourth set of tabs I can remove the hemostats from the first set and replace them on the newly glued parts. I was using tweesers and clothespins which seemed like it was moving really slow.
I was using little craft pegs for mine. I had a similar system though with the PVS glue I was using.
It's raing here but hopefully I have enough resin left in the garage to get the last of the fibreglassing done today. I'll try to get some filler onto it too.
That program looks so cool! I may have to look into it, seeing how it can help make awesome props like that!
Thanks buddy, I'm still working on this as well as another Halo helmet. There just isn't much new to show on the RG lid. As soon as I make some decent progress I'll post it here.
I should really log-on more often! Skupilkinson! This is really cool of you to share the file after doing so much work! I was always interested in the Pepakura software but not so much in a Halo lid... WOW!
I hope you have taken pics of each stage as noobs like me will have LOTS of questions Print, Glue, Fiber Glass the inside - then heatgun glue the outside or our Euro equivalent to bondo???
Thanks again for sharing - its really cool of you to do so!
Going to try this to get me back in the groove - Pepakura + SW = LOVE
Thanks very much! I haven't had much chance to get more work on this one yet, the weather here has been wet and cold so it's not ideal bondo weather. I sprayed it with some grey paint(lazy job) just to get an idea as to how much bondo work it'll need.
Some areas need a bit of attention but overll, it's Ok. As soon as I get a chane to get in the garage and carry on with it I will.
Just wondering if you're still gonna offer this .pdo file!! The link no longer works I hope no one has been selling or taking credit for your awesome work...really wouldn't suprise me wit people though...
Skip did offer this... but due to one or two people making money from his work on Ebay he has decided to sell his work rather than give it away? best to PM Skip...
Thanks for explaining it Mojo'. I always get uncomfortable having to answer that one since my work in the past has always been free to all.
It is true that most of my current and future work will be for sale only, however the Fett stuff I'm doing at the moment is free as soon as it's ready. I'll be posting links when the time comes.
I finally finished the paper build-up of this. IMHO Well worth the time. Thanks again Skip. I'll post some images later.
Excellent! Thanks for letting us know buddy, I'll look forward to seeing it.
Haven't I posted pics here of my build?
But your the expert
Great! I'll go check it out.
