Halo Reach in 1/6 update 08/02/2010

Just a quick update:
- I tried out the HS/helmet on an HT body. The helmet, although proportionate looked too small. That along with the repairs needed to recover the damaged piece lead me to start over. This time paying more attention to scale rather than proportion. So far, so good.
- Started the body armor. I am using a couple of new materials for this piece. 1. Automotive bondo - this provides me with a low-cost styrene based material.
2. Tamiya 2 part epoxy resin. I really love this stuff. It dries very hard and pretty fast (full set in about 4 hours). First time using this and very pleased with the results.

That's all for now - pics coming soon.
