Here we go again- ME3 style armor for a client- deadline April 20.

I always really liked these builds and they are a natural for EVA foam. Client wanted custom templates made of ME3 style N7 with a more textured layered build. I am not a huge fan of cutting in detail lines with a dremel or soldering iron so I designed around that where possible.

Client paid for the models/templates. I do not have permission to release them at this time to the public. I hope to release them at a later date.

Thanks guys. Trying my best to keep it so fresh and so clean clean to quote outkast.

I love foam builds, but this has LOTS of little details in it. It seems endless.

Great work so far, can't wait to see more.
And yeah Hot glue is the way to go for foam building. It works great, I have never had a piece seperate on me yet. Even if you try to pull to pieces apart if you have glued it right you rip the foam before the glue gives out!..

Wow, never wouldve thought Hot Glue would win that battle!
I've been experimenting on 5mm EVA (foam camping mat) and tried Cyanoacrylate(super Glue), Bostik solvent free glue, Evo Stik 'Serious Glue' and Hot glue. so far, the HOt GLue and super glue (odd, that) seems to work best.

I use Serious glue on everything but on EVA its not great.

I keep some superglue around for small details but I use prolly 98% good old hot glue.

Quick test fit with client. Project is moving nicely along and has down fill momentum now. Playing with the idea of not painting it at all and just using colored EVA. I think it may show off how versatile EVA is. I think if I keep the build super clean I can get away with it.

Great work Shades! Very clean!

I'm working on one of these sets too, but the gray foam I am using is a bit too light for me so I think I am going to repaint it. If you were going to paint yours up, what paint would you use?

Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work!
