Mail call! and other such nonsense.

Well hello there. So today i got a package! inside was among other things, a hot glue gun! whats this for you might ask? well like many other people before me i am making Mark VI mjolnir armor from Halo. When you see my 360 (sometime soon when i don't have anything else) you will understand why. But anyways so far all i have it the helmet made and partly fiber glassed.
Helmet Front view. I'm holding it up to represent the future padding
Helmet side view
 When i went to college i left it behind and made a huge mess trying to make a scorpion tank with Elmer's glue. And tape. A whole ton of tape. Now that's almost done and ill be finishing off the final wheel eventually.

Scorpion tank. That's a 17" Laptop.
 But the main point is i will start working on my armor and fiber glassing it when i get home :D however my armor wont be just normal armor oh no. I'm using a friends old laptop that has a broken screen, mounting it in my back with the fans expelling air downward through the suits air vents from the game and using that to power a set of Vuzix Wrap 920AR glasses so that i can overlay what I'm seeing with a HUD.
Oh and i have a gold visor already as well so i will be looking so awesome. As of now i don't know what I'm going to put on the HUD. Any ideas?
After(if) i finish the tank I'm going to make the M9 pistol from the series before i move on to the armor.
On the gaming note I'm starting to get really into Halo Reach. send me a friend request @ KingSnake2058 if you want to play Firefight or 2v2v2. I'm practicing for a tournament this weekend lol.

ignore this its so i can prove i own this blog:

  5. Its not really about tutorials. You just have to get out there and do it. You sorta just learn how to on your own. Sure you lose a lot at first but then once you get that first kill. It becomes addicting.
