That unfold would lend itself very well to using sintra if you want to work the piece so it has the weld seam etc. Basically what I did for a base on my build. :)

You're doing GREAT man! (y)thumbsup

The foam texture made it look more like a cast iron which makes your helm a believeable metal material...:):thumbsup VERY NICE!!!

Now if you could only conseal the seam lines, it would be perfect...:love

Keep building... cheers!

Wow! I would not have thought that just two coats of paint would make foam look that much like rough metal. Did you seal it with anything or just spray it on? It looks like the paint beaded up to create an even cooler texture.

The joy of doing the Mark I is that almost all your seams can be covered by a thick bead of hot glue for the welds. So even the cuts that are not so hot will be buried by glue anyway.

I would be interested to see if you attempt the whole build....good luck!

Hi guys was playing around today thinking about the Mk I Helmet i made and started looking at reference pics of the Mk I Armour and After visiting the Pound store Found a nice led light and thought about making the Mk I arc reactor i just need to add some wires and things but see what you think to the basics







Then i got the building bug again and started work on the chest i made a frame first out of some old plastic signs i have laying around i used for my jango fett armor then just using pics for reference started cut foam free hand still abit to do but wanted to share my progress with you the engine on the back is going to be the hardest bit i just need to keep my eye out and start collecting pieces i can use also going to make a trip to the scrap yard and get some old wiring looms to add to it once painted see what you think:)





heres some reference pics of what im working from :)
