Been lurking here for a few weeks now and decided to register. I like what i have seen from everyone here, great work!
I have decided to make a clone as my first armor set. I discovered the pepakura method and have a bazillion pep files now thanks to those board. I would love to purchase a set but it is just so **** expensive.
My progress so far...well...that's another story. I decided to use an iron man as a test pep to see if i even had the patience to do it. It worked well. Thus far I have done a Rex (toon) helmet, and just finishing my second clone brain bucket. I will try my hand at the resin on whichever comes out better.
I do have a few questions for you guys...
1. How big...or how should a clone bucket fit? As in how much room around my face should there be, or above my head? I know this will vary so general answers would be great.
2. I have not seen what should be used as a lens once the paper is cut out. Helmet is no good if i cannot see out of it! LoL What have you guys been using as lenses.
Thanks for any answers you guys put up!!!
One more idea i had was to put some IR LEDs on the helmet and using the screen from a digital camera on the inside for night vision. That would be kinda cool. Just a thought.
Thanks again guys and gals. Looking forward to all your input.
