Finally - Mercurio's Spacemarine (scratch)build
« on: November 14, 2015, 11:32:42 AM »
Finally, after YEARS i made it to start with my own, first Spacemarine Armor.

I'm not using any pepakura sheets - only Pictures, my Codex and my (hopefully good) working skills ;)

Today i started to build my Shoulder pieces



I made them out of Styrofoam, which i will cover with Epoxy Resin when everything else is finished and in shape.
The rubberbands i used here, to keep them in place for a first look, are not the final solution. But i think i will use a similar method later and attech them to the body armor then, too.

The shoulders still look pretty big O_o
But i believe, that i will look different, when i have a Chest Piece, that makes everything look bulkier ^^

THey are still in a very early stage... and i will do some more work on them.

...
Any opinions/suggestions so far?

Soooo.... Another day of work, and the shoulder pieces look much better now. made them smaller, too



And i started to build a 'skeleton'...or basic structure for the Chest Armor.

These days i will use PU-Foam to full edges and holes, and then cut and sand it into the right shape :)

Ooh. A scratch build. Don't see many of those anymore. Look forward to seeing your progress!

Beware the x-acto blade, the glue burn, the paint fume.

Thanks :) I hope this will look  good at the end ^^°


Continued on the chest piece - but my hotglue gun broke, so i couldnt add more styrofoam :/
So it is pretty cubic now. But i will continue as soon as i can glue again ^^°

And it goes on~

Did some slight corrections in the shape of the chest piece - but the front needs to be more round. Will fix that during the next week - and hopefully be able to do the Aquila, too :3



And i started with the Pants today

I'd love to see the weight difference (compared to foam) once you have a piece ready.

Alrighty~ Sorry everybody for my long break and no pics i promised~
Life went a bit bad the last weeks/months... but now getting better again.

But not my Armor....
Today i realized that something went terribly wrong with my chestpiece/proportions/shapes...

But take a look by yourself



I will cancel this ....But not giving up everything!
I will just do a restart, change materials, because that styrofoam doesnt work out well as i thought it would.
But i will keep the shoulder and pant pieces, just redo the chestpiece!

Sorry to hear that you have to re start.  I thought it was going quite well.

Very much agreed that styrofoam is epically difficult to use if you are not covering it with something more rigid/stronger. I am glad that you didn't think that your chest piece was too small. I think that is more of a case that your shoulders need to be BIGGER! If you add a simulated stamped ridge along the bottom of the chest piece where it goes over the abdominal armour, I think it would be about right...

Exterminatus means not having to say you're sorry.
