So I've just been working on getting all my foam pieces cut out.
For the most part, I just use poster board to kinda "sketch" out the shape I want then I cut it out and hold it up to myself to see if it needs to be smaller/bigger or just altered.
Here's the upper arm bands...
It needed some detailing so I added some EVA foam.
Unsanded VS Sanded
Attached to the main part and ready to be sealed, primed and painted.
And here's the red chest part.
Green LED lights will be added in those eye-lookin' slit things.
Then the back piece...
And the back piece with the jet packs in progress...
Looks very Buzz Lightyear-ish... Yeah definitely going to paint that red.
And now here's the under-chest-piece-thing that is going to be painted gold.
And now the back piece... with jet packs!
But yes, all of these pieces look really goofy right now because they aren't painted. The packs of fun foam I bought had to come in a variety of colors... Damn kids.
