A new thread here for something a bit different from usual.
Different because I usually build Iron Man.
Different because this suit is for me, for once.
And different because this time you'll have to purchase these foam files from Blackkaos, given he's the modeler of this Robocop. I'm only doing the unfold, and as a pledge of quality this "on-the-air" first build.
The blue one is the one I keep, it's the "crash-test" build. I use it to improve my templates and spot the tricky stages. Then I correct and adjust the unfold consequently. The red one is done on the heels from these enhanced unfolds.
Sure I guess the very first blow of questions, here is the answer :
I bought this blue foam a couple of years ago, aiming this Robocop project. It's the same foam kind and brand I use for every other build, simply it's now not available in blue color anymore. Also its commercial name and its backside pattern have changed. Before, it was called TG-100 and had a stripped pattern, when now they are called Domyos Essential Fintess mats and show a tight diamond pattern on the backside. These rolls remain 6.5mm thick, polyethylen foam (PE), 2lbs/ft³, available here : Essential Fitness Mat DOMYOS - Exercise Mats Fitness, Dance, Martial arts -...
