I picked up a pot of Isopon p38 too, I haven't tried it yet though :/ I've to finish resining the Boba helmet and halo helmet first and then I've another smaller halo helmet to do and I was working on a Skyrim helmet this weekend for a guy in work... so right now I'm trying to get all of what I'm making to the same stage.

i'll stick up some pics of what i did over the weekend later!
ah that hair dryer tip will come in very handy.!! i was thinking of a skyrim helmet eventually too and just came across a pep file for cyclops from xmen's visor from the 90's cartoon so might do that after awhile, seems like a small build too!!

when i see the jelly.. i start freaking out lol!!

is there any pepakura forum/board on here besides this.? iron man isnt exactly halo-ish!!

This might be a stupid question but how does this pepakura craic work? Do you buy the flat packed pieces in a box? Print out templates and fold it? I'm very interested in this!!

You download Pepakura software and then find what you want to build. The software allows you to print out the pieces for your build and then you glue it together (id recommend using a glue gun, as it glues a lot quicker!). each piece of the puzzle has a flap that fold or an edge you glue to a flap! and that's pretty much it! The software numbers each side so its you can find the pieces blah blah blah.It may sound easy but you have to have the sides perfectly aligned when gluing or it can screw up your hole project.

I need to get back to this stuff, its very time consuming and can cost a bit of money to do, its better to buy in bulk when getting resin and body filler, but you only get your monies worth if you're making a few things. but buying in bulk could save you hundreds of euros.
