The slowest N7 armor build in history by hsholderiii The slowest N7 armor build in history by hsholderiii
I bring you - The Slowest N7 Armor Build IN HISTORY

Here are the parts I worked on since last update. Finished attaching the helmet back (114 pieces in all) and completed the ab section.

But I have so much left to do:
...
* I still have the backpack light sections to add, some trimming on the chest, and paneling on the neck.
* For the helm I need to add trim around the ear cups for detail and heat up a visor to stick in there.

Then it's off to the lower back which should be fun. I am going to go back to the shoulders and try a new technique.

Yes, I know that is a female dress form - I need to thank my girlfriend for letting me use it lol

Thanks for reading :)

Nice! The helmet in particular looks fantastic. It may be slow, but at least it's getting there!

Thanks, the helm wasn't too hard to build it was just tedious. I may have had an easier time if it were made from a different material or casted but I wanted the texture to match the rest of the suit.

little tip, do all your painting BEFORE you do any other sort of battle damage or wear and tear. gives a much more authentic look.

I understand what you mean about the curves from working with pepakura. Some piece just doesn't look right and then all of a sudden when I try to force two edges together *pop* the whole thing corrects itself. Very rewarding :)

Slow? Perhaps. Quality work? Absolutely. The level of detail in the helmet (particularly the back) is really impressive. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks, I hope I can do the build justice. There are so many other artists that pioneered this costume before me and did such a great job that the only thing I can really do is focus on proportions.

I have some turn around sheets printed off of the armor in my garage and I've been trying to keep the proportions as similar as possible. The nice thing is, curves and arcs in the foam seem to make themselves as I build and bring things together.
