hi guys, i have been looking at the posts and there is no one resin that you guys use. so can you guys tell me what type of resin you use and if it's lightweight. i have my mode done just need help on the resin.
Seems a lot of you guys favor urethane's. Another option would be epoxy resin and fiberglass cloth, or polyester and glass matte. Also light, a bit of flex, and that reinforcement really helps. You can use fiberglass cloth with urethane too.
I know that polyester resins (typically sold with fiberglass mats) have obnoxious smells and brain-eating solvents, but do epoxy resins have the same problem? I'm planning to do some pepakura work for an upcoming Halo ODST outfit, and I thought epoxy would be somewhat safer.epoxy has the smell and vapors that you usually dont want lingering around. The urethanes are much cleaner and simpler.
