I am new to this (sorta), I started making an Ironman helm last year but never had enough time to finish it. Anyways I am planning on starting a Ironman build again and I've noticed that I see far more posts of suits made with foam these days than paper and well I'm wondering what's up?
Why do you guys choose one medium vs the other, what are the pros and cons of both?
My plan last year was to build a paper model and use clay/fiberglass to build some models I can make a casting of and then cast pieces in plastic for the final suit. That seemed to be how the best suits on the web were done but now I'm wondering why the craze with foam.
