    Hey all

    So ill start off with quick bit about me. I am from Australia and I used to go by the name Autobot1995, I've now since changed it to CaminusPrime and I'm currently on Youtube and Instagram the latter being where i generally post regular updates

    Now as the title says I've been currently working on an ODST costume that i aim to have done by Sydney Supanova in June, considering I've made a decent amount of progress i thought it would be great to start up a thread now because ill hopefully posing a number of updates over the next month. I am building using paper and fibreglass for the armour, I still have about six pieces that need to be built including the back and legs as well as the crotch plate although I've already started work fibre glassing some of the pieces including the helmet and shoulders.

    **sorry for the crap quality photo's the look way worse on my pc than they do my phone, ill try to use something else in the future

    Ill post some of the photos of progress below:

    - Testing how the gauntlet fits

    - Photos of progress building the helmet

    - The model I used had an attachment on the mouth (I don't know the name of it) so i needed to make these pieces to fill in those areas.

    - Finished helmet

    - Fits well!

    - Everything I've built all together 18361851_10203457249149903_126846352_o.jpg 18339492_10203457249269906_1450388716_o.jpg

    - Now these pieces have all been resin coated and glassed so far 18405291_10203457243309757_2108607302_o.jpg 18339543_10203457243189754_863465064_o.jpg
    - Marked up ready to be detailed

    - Before and after view before and after.jpg

    So yeah that's my ODST build so far, Not much left to build and I plan on making a mould of the helmet, perhaps a few other the other pieces too. I have an extensive plans for an electrical kit that I'm working on so stay tuned for that.

    On top of my ODST, i also have a Halo 5 MKVI that is very nearly complete (Could even be finished at the same time as this) as well as a planned reach build.

    Over the next month I have some uni exams and work that needs to be done so that will take priority and probably the only reason i don't get this done in time for nova, which is great because nova is at the start of my six week holidays so it will definitely will be finished through that time after if not before. If it is i will totally power straight into my other two builds within those weeks!

    Anyway, thanks for checking out my build and any progress i may i shall keep it posted here!

    Build looks sweet, very clean and nice so far. Two suits at once, wow, but hey, you got the drive for it man.

    Im so close, i built the MK VI last year but i need to finish off a few pieces yet, and the odst is nearly done, after 2 failed attempts at the shin i finally got the scale correct and have finished a shin minus the knee which ill have done pretty soon before i start on the thigh, once each are done ill build the other side to go with it. so yeah both paper builds are close now!

    Love the Pep stuff. So much more detailed than the foam. Haven't delved into that side of a build yet, but after seeing your amazing work, it just may be time!

    Thank you! I will have more to show by the end of the week, I've just completed a shin after numerous attempts failing with scale haha

    Thanks! Glad to know my work can be inspiring! I'm yet to really do any foam work myself but ill actually be using foam in the chest core of the build that way I have both build methods in a sense

    I am so very happy to see a pep based ODST build.
    I'm not the biggest fan of the DTF ones, always seemed kinda flat to me :/

    Keep at it bro. See you at Sydnova

    Cheers bro! Ill see you there!

    P.S - DFT's model redefines the term Flattop ;) and if i hadn't gone with the amazing model i used, i would have built from kirrou's ODST model (which I'm honestly still tempted to do one day to just for the hell of doing it)
