    UPDATE - January 2016 - I have decided to revisit this costume and finally complete it. Now that I have found the missing files that I needed I have started trying to break them down into foam files, I think I am doing it right....at least it looks ok so far - New pics added in thread.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So as soon as my hand un-cramps from cutting out all the pieces I will start the helmet part of this build.

    I huge thanks goes out to Elro for getting this to me even though he's busy with his own projects.

    I shall start with a picture of all the pieces in their first stage of cutting.....I alway cut out the pieces this way...then I go back through and cut all the notches out and score them as I go.

    I must say for this being a helmet it has a ton of tiny parts...should be a challenge.

    Here we go:

    Looks like you'll be having fun with this. Don't forget to credit me though lol, I sent the Cyrax, Sektor and Cyber Sub-Zero 3D Models to Elro, but they have done the break down and a lot of the unfolding since I just don't have a lot of time.

    i dont see how people can do pepakura this way, i couldnt keep track xD
    i rather cut it by hand and glue at the same time, this way i dont get confused with the parts

    Yes thank you very much PepMaster not only for sending the 3D models their way...but also sending me Elro's way he was VERY helpful in this.

    Yeah I always have done pep this way......guess just getting it all cut out gets the less fun aspect out of the way for me :)

    Yes the picture above is just for the helmet, I hope to start gluing it together tonight if all goes well.

    After that's all done I will be starting on the suit, either by pep if the files are done....or eyeballing it from screen shots.

    Yeah there are quite a few small pieces to this one - time to get out the tweezers....the good news is both sides are a mirror image so it makes it a little easier to build in my opinion

    Dont worry PEPM. Ive put your name in the PDO :D Need to talk to you to see if you need other information put in all the files as well (DA. etc.)


    OH and yes, I always make unfolds symmetrical. I normally cut all the pages out - And lay the pieces in order as they appear on screen. It saves a lot of time looking at one join, then doing the same step on the other side - Because its easier to find the parts layed out on the pages.

    Looks like my unfold was good! This is the first time ive ever seen pics of someone creating a PEP I fixed the model for / and unfolded :D very nice work / cuts / joining Jagger! :D

    Yes this is the 9 version - Very similar to the one used in the online Mortal Kombat: Rebirth series. I have been wanting to do this since I saw it on the series.

    Pepmaster and myself put the files together - The rest of the pieces are still inprogress, the Helmet is the only completed part so far.
    I will be releasing the files to the public only when all are ready - This will be collated into a ZIP in locked PDO Format (sorry, but PDO theft for sale is a problem and I will only be giving out locked format - If people require different sizes (only after the release) I will do custom unfolds to match their sizing, once again these will be locked format).
    Locked format ensures that the correct people get creditted for work, and is accompanied by a disclaimer that If someone has paid for the file to get a refund and to report the seller.


    I have asked Jagger to not the share the file as of yet, but if you would like to get started on the helmet send me a PM and ill send you the file.

    I admire your building skills man - this is coming along really nice and very sharp and neat. Can you take us through your scoring / cutting / gluing procedure?

    I normally score all pages first, using red pen for valleys, blue pen for mountains, Then I cut out each page and place the pieces in the same order on spare paper. Once all cut i use scoth quick dry adhesive, and start gluing it up. My stuff turns out fine, just curious to your methods :p

    I cut all my pieces out first - kinda rough cut them, then if its something with a mirrored side like the helmet I stack all the pieces in 2's - Then as I use a piece I cut all the little notches out - then lightly score the folds with a razor for good folds.

    Then for glue I use DAP Weldwood - Contact Cement. I apply a thin lay to both pieces i'm joining, its dries really fast then you just press both pieces together and they instantly stick - So you need to be sure of where your joing or its pretty hard to separate without ripping.

    For small parts I use a long set of forceps to be able to press the pieces together from the inside of tight spaces.

    Ahhh, i started off pep doing that. I got sick of it cos I kept cutting through / tearing the pieces. It does give a much better fold though. I do long marathon sessions of PEP - fatigue gets in the way of scoring with a blade xD

    I use to cut manually as well, till I found out about the silhouette sd machine. It's great u just print from ur printer and place the pep into the machine and it cuts and scores the mountain and valley folds. Go on youtube and type up silhouette sd pepakura. The guy on there explains in detail how to set up the machine and how to set up pep designer and viewer. Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks for the tip on the machine - I have looked at them before and just can't pull myself to buy one yet. Maybe if I ever get a good price on a used one :) Until then the old fashion way will get me by :)

    Im with Jagger on this one. Have seen them, want one - But cant justify the initial price + blades + carrier sheet prices. Im not a buisness, and I have bills to pay. Ill stick to 25c blades and a little bit of effort for now ;)

    So I finished the helmet tonight - I would definitely suggest anyone that builds this in the future to start from the front and work back, it was pretty tough to get the front on once I got to it.

    When it was done I was not able to just slip it straight on I put a small slit right up the back about 4 inches - That gave enough of an opening to slip it on and it fits great.

    So here are the pictures of the helmet - Now I will wait patiently for the next file...Hint Hint Hint :)

    So I was given the next piece of the puzzle - The shoulder armor for Cyrax - Going to try and make this out of foam so hopefully I did the editing on the pieces correctly.

    ***Please do not bug Elro for the files at this time - He will be releasing them as a full set once done - Thank you**

    It's funny from that angle of all the shoulder pieces it almost looks like a Iron Man faceplate.

    The foam I use can be cut with scissors :) So actually haven't gone through many, I only use a blade for the small cuts and angles - and I usually use the disposable razor knifes from the dollar store for that.
