Thanks man!

Update: I got one shin guard done! Pretty happy with it. Sorry about the pink, my local Hobby lobby is running short on the 5mm foam.

Still amazes me that this is foam. Now maybe I missed this info in this rapidly-expanding thread... But what kind of glue are you using on the foam pieces? And do you bring the glue to the outer edge or leave some space for the heat seal?

I'm using super glue gel. I just trust the stuff. A big thanks to Kevin (inkmonkey) for the tip about cutting the plastic part off the tube of super glue. It is more than you think left in the tube. Dale, I don't put it all the way to the edge, cause when I squeeze the pieces together the glue seeps out. I kinda learned as I went where to put the glue so when I put the pieces together the glue stops at the edges.

Well after a VERY VERY VERY LOOOOONG night I figured out how to run Pepakura on my MacBook pro. I was able to print this pep file out by Crimmson713.

It has the neck piece. Don't know yet if I will redo the cowl. This one is way more complicated than the last one I did. 90 pages of stuff to cut out. :cussing

Now to get some sleep before I start cutting.

her youngest modeling it for me. she said there's no way it'll fit because her printer scaled it down. she also gave me a list of all the material she's going to need to make it look professional. i consider myself to be a very lucky guy :)

Sorry the updates have been slow as of late. Waiting for payday to go buy supplies. I have been trying to do the neck piece but I'm having issues with the pep file. I don't think it is set up for foam. Think I may try to make my own pattern. I did however took another shot at the cowl and this one turned out waaay better than my first attempt.
