    Edit: 2018: I am back to working on this project and hopefully I can finally be able to show you the complete build. Sadly I had sold my initial pepakura build since Bondo was not for me. Thread has been updated with a new post and the initial post was changed. Thread will be modified in the future regards to progress.

    Going to be starting the hardening project this week!

    Going to use one part Titbond Woodglue II and a few parts water in a jar and layer it on the parts with a brush over and over again until the parts art rock hard.

    Wish me luck!

    Thank you so much, Alpha Proto!

    Zero is one of my favorite characters and I really hope that I am able to do him justice. =]

    Do you need the helmet merged as a single file for unfolding?

    I believe so.

    I have tried combining the parts to be one large object, but doing so only makes it part of the same object {I am not sure if I am making sense.} The parts and faces are still there and when I have unfolded the model in the past, the parts aren't connected by edges/vertices.

    I got what your saying, just shoot it my way and I'll have it fixed as soon as I get home. Do you want it back as is or in Pep format?

    Will do! Thank you again!

    If it's not too much problem, pep file would be great. [If you have time!]
    But if its sent back as an .obj, still awesome! As long as its fixed and I am able to unfold it to finish this costume. <3

    Currently working on fixing up this Megaman Zero Blaster model that I found on xDraw's patron.

    And I also have this Megaman Zero blaster by underscythe on DA.

    I just wonder why modeller's feel the need to make things as separate objects rather than as one with multiple extra faces.
    I have a very very long road ahead of me, unless I decide to give up and decide to just use foam board instead of building it with Pepakura. I feel like that might be the best idea at this point.

    So update on my progress!

    Zero's side pieces kept falling off so I need someway to attach them to my thighs comfortably but otherwise, everything is complete!
    Just need to harden everything with Woodglue!

    Stay tuned!

    Wow, I haven't posted here in forever!

    But I have begun to work on Zero's Buster Shot [Z Shot?] and started to clean up the edges with paper clay! So far it seems great as a sealant however I am going to have to sand any bumps down that I come across and then add more clay if needed.

    Thinking about adding a small touch light in the nozzle in blue/green to imitate the color of his shots.
    Not sure how to do that though.

    I am also planning to make his Z Saber out of green clear styrene or green acrylic plastic sheets [I forgot what they are called right now].

    Sadly, I have to terminate this project for working with Bondo was not the choice for me.

    I currently have this cosplay (incomplete, just needs sanding and priming and painting) up for sale.

    If anyone could help me figure out how to get the files to be use able with Eva foam, I will greatly appreciate it.

    Hello everyone,

    Its me again!
    So I decided that I am going to revamp this project and start completely fresh! I am trying to find all of the necessary PEP files once again, however remembering the issues that I had before (Bondo was not the right method for me since I do not have space to work with large shading projects) I really believe that foam would be the way to go.

    However, I have never worked with EVA foam (other than for very small commissions that did not need angles) so I am pretty nervous. Does anyone have any idea what MM foam to start with? I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks =]
