Welcome and good luck,

best advice I can give you is get the right materials and tools.

we might be able to give more advice once you started working on it and have some pictures

yeah if you are somewhat larger you can scale up the parts.. I have a big helmet and I pep mine 10-20% larger then the standard scale. like Buster said it can all be done in Pepakura designer

This is such a common build but I still want to do build a pep suit someday. I will wish you the best and can't wait to see the finished project mate.

Thought its about time I post as well. I just started building my first foam costume using the pep method and am building the Mark IV as well. So far, I've just got the helmet done, but will have to do it again as it is slightly too small. **(I considered it a test build anyway since I've never done anything like this before)** I can get my head into it, but really have to force it on, and it bows a bit on the side.

I plan on using this helmet as a test for the rest of the processes (sealing, priming, painting, etc.).

The files I'm using are Stealth's edited version of robo3867's files. Thanks to you guys for providing these.

Kithany, curious to what you mean by you can't get it to fit? On you? or fit the pieces together? I've had to "tweak" things a bit to get them to work right, but seems to be going well so far.

Which part are you working on?

Can't wait to see some pictures.

Just size in general like i said im a bigger guy and cant get the scale down yet starting to get frustrated been checking all the sizing forums never really messed with pep iv mostly been doing sculpt work but wanted to try the foam armor seems so much easier
