    It looks amazing. So this is from a foam plan? I don't see AZTLAN listed as a member here so I was wondering about the availability of them.

    Man, this is amazing! I find it hard to manipulate the foam to get the clean joins you have achieved....WHAT ARE YOUR SECRETS SORCERER??! lol

    Did you use the standard floor mat EVA? or thinner stuff?

    i dont rush my build. then need to foam cuts straight or right 45 degree
    then i learn a lot techniques of how to glue stuff in jfcustom tutorials
    then need a lot of practice

    Nice work so far. I have been trying to figure out what the back might look like. I like your take and will probably base mine off it. But I think it would probably go all the way down and have some sort of spine protection, based on his experience fighting powered foes like Bane.

    I look forward to seeing how your project develops.

    I've got most of the torso done. Now comes the detail work.
    front.jpg

    I kept the back split so its easier to get in and out of it. Also added some buckles. I figure its going to be covered by the cape so no big deal.

    The collar was a pain. Didn't want to split it so i made it detachable with magnets. Seems to hold well enough. Showed some of the magnets on the collar.

    Next up, Lots of seam work. Filler. Detail, Etc.

    For color, I think I'm going to go with a hammered Iron spray paint. Tried it on a test piece and it looked pretty good.

    Ha. I don't know about that. I'm frustrated enough with this one build. :)

    Mostly because i discovered that the helmet im using is a bit too big with this armor. Can barely turn my head. :)

    I'm about to start with the same files. Out of curiosity, how tall are you? I'm wondering how much I need to alter the files. I'm about six foot even but relatively thin framed so I typically need to shrink most unfolds by about 15% or so.

    sorry for asking, but, for how much did you reduce the helmet? 5% or 10%?

    Did you just use EVA foam mats or did you use different thickness

    Been lurking these forums for a while. Just created an account to tell you that this is one of the best builds I've ever seen on here. The helmet seems a bit too longer but other than that it looks amazing. I'd buy that from you in a heartbeat! Keep up the awesome work!

    Fantastic work!

    Can I ask about the painting / weathering technique used ?

    Did you seal the foam with PVC glue and plastidip before painting?

    I assume you used a hammerd metal silver paint and then dry brushed black to enhance details and give a weathered appearance ? Did you paint any highlights - if so what colour ?

    How did you seal your paint work?

    Sorry if this post is in appropriate but I going to build my own suit using Aztlan's patterns. I have watched all Evil Ted's videos and read Bill Dorians Foamsmithing book - just trying to pick up a few more pointers to make my build as good as I possibily can.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Working on my helmet now! What mm foam are you using for the body? Great work as always!
