How are you, heretics?
Working on the suit for a few days now, first time fibreglassed in my life (fucking messy business) but I feel it's going well.This is how far Iíve managed to get so far:
The helmet is pretty much done, just need to add a little more fibreglass to the horns and maybe the inside top. After that, Iíll take a dremmel to it and just kinda tidy it up. The little bits of fibreglass sticking out over the flaps and edges? Theyíll be sawn off and ground down to make it relatively flat. After that, Iíll be able to start doing the next stage Ė bondo.
The shoulders have been frustrating. Itís been difficult to keep their shape, and as a result minor depressions have occurred around the surface. Iíll have to fill it in with the bondo, or pass it off as battle damage, or just cover it in skulls. For future reference, when fibreglassing the inside of the shoulders, put it in a suitably sized bucket so itíll keep its shape, rather than putting it on a flat surface and letting it deform slightly.
This bad-boyís next. Iíve got to fix a slight tear at the back (probably with duct tape) and then Iíll start fibreglassing the inside. This will probably be quite difficult, itíll be the largest (and most unstable) thing to fibreglass yet. Not sure how Iíll manage this.
Tonight, however, Iíll finally start building the legs and see how they fit. Then Iíll fibreglass those, start building the cardboard backpack (epic project alone). Wish me luck, daemon spawns.
