    jean, if you see my posts count, I'm pretty new too. I assume you have some files, so I'd start with a small piece, like the WM shoulder, print it out on cardstock, or even regular paper, and just get a feel for how the pieces are suppose to fit together. Also, browse through the Pep menus, for scaling, learn how to move the unfolded pieces, etc... If you're using foam, you should remove the flaps. If you have the basics down, go to the first post in this thread as Stealth has provided some excellent videos to guide us on how we can use pepakura for foam. Best of luck!

    If you're not using foam, then use the regular pep files (not adapted for foam). The foam templates have the tabs and other contour lines removed because they aren't needed with foam. With regular cardstock/paper you need those in place

    Have got all your files for this specific project an I'm busy with my foam project but seems some things missing like elbows and some details for shoulders
    I can make these myself using the team up pep files but just wanted to point it out
    Thanks for the files guys
    Stealth your tutorials rock!
    I been looking at good wm costume builds online and just doesn't feel like I would have the skill to pull it off due to some shabby cuts and edges in my foam and also the foam pieces don't tend to stay round and instead try to flatten themselves out leaving my helmet funny looking
    Then I noticed on these good looking builds online(even let's wm) if you zoom in on the pics they all look like mine so that gives me hope.

    I have a really, really dumb question.

    Could these "foam" templates be used with, say, plastic storage tubs instead?
    I realize you'd need to add internal supports (and possibly a metric ton of pop rivits)
    to pull it off.

    Anyone done this method?

    Thanks,

    While I have not used plastic tubs, I want to point out that when using foam, a lot of the edges are removed. And that works because you can simply offset the foam to provide depth where needed. I don't know how thick the plastic you are using will be, but you might need to add some of the edges back in.

    Hey Joshturismo. Sweet looking WM. Im pretty sure the mounted gun adds some weight to the back. So my question is, have you had any discomfort in the kneck area do to the added weight?
