Greetings everyone,

About a year ago I got into costume making as a hobby (see www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=274104 for my first build).
Now for this year, I'm planning to do a Havoc Trooper from scratch. After lots of research, I'm still somewhat undecided on how to approach this beast.

I was thinking about doing a full Pepakura build, but found only one set of files floating around. However, these are somewhat inaccurate from what I saw, and also incomplete since the gloves (and maybe some other parts as well) are missing.

My questions are now:
- Does anyone of you have a (full) set of pep files floating around and would be willing to share it? I'm not really good at sculpting by eye, so I would definitely prefer clear instructions, i.e. peping Wink

- In case that thing gets too heavy after all the fiberglassing and putty and what not, does anyone of you have experience in turning pep+fiberglass armor into vac forming bucks? And, if so, what would you think the timeframe for that would be on top of the initial pepping? I found little info on that, but read about back-filling the fiberglassed stuff with plaster, which sounds reasonable for me.
Bear in mind, I have no experience in vac forming and would need to make a DIY vac former as well. Ok, I did a bit of vac forming before, but that was 12-15 years ago, and on a professional machine, so that doesn't really count Wink I'm quick at learning techniques and crafty when I need to improvise, though - I had no experience at all before the Skyrim build and it still turned out quite ok I think. And sometimes quite full of myself on top, so I think I could pull off the vac thing Wink

And, as an added note: I don't want to buy a kit - that'd take the fun out of it for me Wink

Thanks in advance,
Philip
