could you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as to how i may be able to get a copy of that helmet file?
Awesome how long did it take?
Due to lots of requests, I have decided to do some more of the armor.
First up, is the shoulder bells.
Click the link below, to download.
I'll have more, as it happens.
I've also been considering offering the helmet file for free, but my current financial situation(unemployed) and my g/f tell me no. What do you guys think?
this is some pritty cool stuff. i had heard about pepakura when i was researching halo costumes. sadly the guy we had in line pulled out and we had to scrap the project. awsome work so far dude. i look forward to seing the finished item.
translation is that apology does not speak English as I did with the google translator and do not know if it translated well greetings
Working on the chest...
Looking sweet as usual bro!!! Well done!!!
I got a bit more done on the chest and started the abs. I actually got as far as the cod/buttplate, but it looked funky, so I'm redoing it. I'm going to separate the ab plates and extend the tops so they overlap, but I'm going to wait until I have the back done so I have a better feel for where everything lines up. I'm probably going to redo part of the shoulder too. I noticed that part of the lower portion extends too far in my model.

Good progress brother! Are you doing the chest/ab plate as a joint part? Or will they be seperate parts for ease of both build and final movement?
Here's another update minus the ab separation.
I've done the hip, but my best reference pics are of the concept art, so I have to move some vertices around to get it to the movie version. I am also going to take a big chunk out of the lower center part of the chest and remodel it. There are just way too many vertices there on an area that will be essentially very flat. The chest started as a sphere, so there are tons of unnecessary vertices in that area.

I finally got registered over here, but I've been following this since it started. I'm just blown away by the level of detail, great work and thanks for sharing!
This is really cool work! how are you constructing it? I only ask because i have some very large CNC equipment suitable for carving 3d models,an extensive background in moldmaking and casting and i just bought a roto casting machine.If you want to produce this costume or any other for that matter, i`d love to get involved.I realize you might think i just want to rip off your model,but that is most definitely not the case.The reality is there is way more money in other manufacturing areas with this kind of equipment.
I do this because i love it and the cool projects i can get involved in.
pm if you`re intrigued. I`ll show some of the other work i`ve done and give you references to check out as to my honesty.
Again cool model.I was toyomg with the idea of cutting the turbosquid model just to see how it comes out, but i`d rather work directly with a creator.
I am i right in thinking you made this out of paper or cardboard and resin.
i wouldn`t have thought that was possible!
I can do silicone cast gloves etc as well.
sorry if i`m getting a little excited, but that suit is pretty impressive.
If it was more interesting to you, you could send me a random part in 3d and i could cut, mold and cast it then send it back to you.
This is precisely why i bought this gear.
I make signs and displays to pay the bills, but i have no love for it.
Just click the download link if you want the file.
I'm almost finished with the chest/back, but I am swamped with "real job" work at the moment, so no updates for a little while. I'll get back to it as soon as I can.
Nice job man... really really fantastic... is not bad for the first time, . PM for questions.
i would need the original obj. file for cnc cutting.
I did a test on another model that i got from turbosquid.
This is really just for testing purposes.
i want to see how accurately the machine will cut and how i can finish it.
Currently i cut half the model in high density foam,then made a plaster mold.
then i melted out the foam with acetone.As soon as i have the mold cleaned, i'll fiberglass it ,break the mold off and do the cleanup with bondo, etc in the usual way.i'll post pics .
Hi doubleh, I´m interesting too in the thing that you do with your machine. I have a pepakura iron man complete armor that I download from a guy and want to know if you join me to try to do quality and no so expensive armors to sell to the fans. email me if you want to email@example.com. I live in spain.
Guys, you're hijacking Dung0beetle's thread a little here.
Progress? Not much, I've been tweaking here and there mostly. Although, I did start the forearm.
I'm still working on the elbow joint area. It will rotate inside the forearm piece. I also need to tweak the lower bicep to make it line up and make a good range of motion.
More updates are on the way, but I start a new job today, so no promises on how soon.
EDIT: Forearm/handplate done. I decided the forearm parts may not fit once resined and bondo'ed, so I left it as seperate parts. They can be easily joined since the area where they meet is flat.
Get it Here.
