Title: Ultramarines Armour (I need help)
Post by: Pandaa Rain on August 09, 2019, 05:15:21 PM
Hello! I’m building a Space Marine suit (The Ultrasmurfs) and I need a few pointers.
1- What are their leather Tavares between the legs called? I’m going to add some.
2- Where can I get EVA Foam cheaply in Australia?
3- What would be good to make a tough rigid shell? DON’T SAY FIBERGLASS. I don’t have access to that kind of stuff and I also want to make it environment friendly.
Thank you!

check out my build for my White Scar.  Made with cheap ALDI foam ($9.99 per 6 squares of 60cm x 60cm x 1.1cm).    Get the right glue, a heat gun, a file sander, a dremel, a whetstone, and blades.  Alcohol wipes get rid of the pen (that will bleed through your paint).  Cabots Interior and Exterior house paint is flexible and doesn't always need a sealant under it. 

It does the job.

Hardening... yeah.. no idea.  That costs money.  whether is is Smooth On or other resins.

As for environmentally friendly?  Nah mate.

And depending on where you are in Australia you might be able to get local assistance.  I'm in Brisbane and I know of people in - Perth, Newcastle, FN Qld, probably Melbourne and Sydney, and Tasmania.

Thanks! I am based in Brisbane. :) Are you going to ComicCon Brisbane? If so we can meet up. I won’t bring my build because I’ve only got the paper models done and the stilts. But anyway, this helps a lot. Thanks!
