    Tomorrow I'll begin the reinforcing process. So far I've not had a lot of luck with pep, already having kinda screwed up a Boba and an Iron Man, but I think I have a handle on it this time ha ha!

    If it goes well I'd like to try a Beserker and a Wolf. Man I wish I could find a Gort and Ram...

    Thanks! I can't even remember the last time I bothered to post a build here, but it's been forever. I figured starting a thread would give me incentive to finish, since I reeeeeallly want this bio and the Sideshow is out of my reach :thumbsup

    Waterproofed and reinforced the back, then stuck on the first layer of paper mache using a 50/50 wood glue/water mix. Got a tiny bit of warping, but nothing I don't think I'll be able to correct in the bondo phase...I hope. (Thanks to Atlanthia for giving me some tips--his TK build was amazing! And I really didn't want to muck around with fiberglass. The Bondo is gonna suck bad enough).

    I discovered I really loathe paper mache. First of all, I don't like getting messy. Second of all, about halfway through I realized I had to pee, BAD, and I couldn't think of a quick way to clean all the wads of drying glue off my hands, so I chose to suffer until I was done. I don't know about any of you, but when I gotta go, I gotta GO. I think next time I'll do it with a Nalgene bottle tucked between my knees :lol

    I'll try to get a pic up later.

    EDIT: here it is...I had to remove some columns in the back that supported the shape...I'll add them back in before layer two of paper. So at the moment it looks a bit flared out is all.
