    Hey RPF !
    My Names Sumisukyo and this is my first build on the Forums for a university project.
    Its a 1:1 scale B1 Battle droid from the Star Wars Universe ( As if you didn't know that ), It has to be robust and The "Backpack" must be "Fully operational" , to deliver the Work inside.

    So after a lot of research I went with a Pepakura build, Because I live in South Africa materials are super expensive and I'm a student soooooo yea.... curse you M'erica !

    So slightly thicker paper, fiber-glassing and Car filler to finish.
    The build will have everything from the Torso Up and If there's Time the arms may or may not be included.

    First Step Pepakura

    if its just smaller areas you could just use the resin as long as its not structural leave the glass out and just resin inside and out
