    Hello everyone.
    First I want to excuse for my bad english. Its being a long time since I have practise.
    My name is Viktor. I am from Ukraine. I have being watching different peoples threats about prop making. Even started something, but have finished.
    Not so long ago I have watched Stealth tutorials about foam method of making armore and decided to try. Thanke you Stealth for inspiring me. This threat will show you my progress.
    First thing that I have done was the chest piece.
    Sorry for the low quality. Its my phone camera.

    Then I made the cod piece and conected abs. I tried to make it as flexible as posible. You can see a lot of velcro inside.

    Thank you! But i am worried about lines, where foam conects. Especially on the helmet. I don't know if i can hide them behind paint and weathering. I am searching for a way to hide them.

    Great build, and very clean.

    There is a post somewhere about making seemless lines on foam builds. I'll see if I can find it.

    The scale looks superb on this! Great job. There are many that just look too bulky when worn, like an un-tailored suit.

    Great build. These foam builds are looking so good I'm thinking I've made a mistake using fibreglass. Maybe next time!

    I get foam from russian manufacture "Isolon"
    here is the site http://www.isolon.dp.ua in my country.
    I think it can only be found in Russia, Ukraine and Belaruss.

    nice job! what thickness of foam are you using?

    also, the part where i'm having the most trouble...how are you cutting your 45 degree angles and how do you know when to cut them?

    thanks in advance!

    Okay im 14 years old im totally a newbie and i finally decided that i wanted to do a helmet, and if it goes well im going to continue with gemini mark 39 armor

    I'm going to buy 1,2 cm thick EVA foam. Is that good or do i need thinner? BTW im running out of options since i live in sweden and alot of EVA foam isnt sold here.
