Knife
Paper Cardstock
Hot Glue
Your PC and Printer
Pepakura Viewer software


DOWNLOAD Pepakura software.

Once you have all the files in your PC, you proceed to print each part.

Cutting the pieces by the solid line.

The dotted line is for "mountain" folding and the dot-line-dot is for "valley" folding.

Match each tab with its corresponding number using hot glue, helped with the Pepakura Viewer to identify easily each piece.

Do the same with all the parts one by one to avoid confusing the pieces.

TIP: Save each printed & cutted page of the part in numbered folders for easy identifying.

I downloaded the pepakura... the right shin left shin r the same! same thing w/ the right/left handplate...any suggestions?
same w/ shoulders, thighs and biceps
sekkei (author)  digg44443 years ago
HEY! Sorry for the delay...
Here's a thing! some pieces are the same in the 3D model (left and right),
but if you take a look closely they are not the same, try to print them and you will notice the difference, I really have not idea why the 3D model doesn't change when flip is apply to parts.
Other pieces, like the hand plate, are just the same for both sides.

Hello. How much did it cost you to make the hole project? I have started building it on my own, with cardboard and EVA foam but I think your idea is much much better.

Hey! Um, As you can probably see I'm a girl... And I was wondering if this suit design and stuff would work with my... let's say, female body specifications lol xD I'd really like to make this at some point but I don't want to download the files and everything if it's not going to work!
I was also wondering how long it took you to do this? If you stated it above then I apologise, I must have over looked it but yeah, would I need more than 3/4 weeks? lol thanks in advance!! This is really amazing work lol xD -AP

Raksayarth AniP13 months ago

You would probably use the same method he states in this Instructable, except you will have to find other different Pepakura files than the ones he used, ones specifically designed to accommodate your...ah...female body differences. You will be able to use most of the ones here, probably excepting the torso and possibly the pelvic piece as well. I hope this helps.

love it!!!

I'm in the process of building the Mark IV using your process and I noticed that there is some sort of under armor under the chest and under the back piece. Is this the collar plate? as it looks to be one piece. Or is it something else?

Can you help? Thanks

I would like to use this method on another project, and I am curious, can I use fiberglass resin on poster board foam?

ChrisReezy75 months ago

is the cardstock paper you used white or what color?

It looks like he used white but that isn't a big deal because it will be covered with body filler and paint.

How tall are you? How important would body type customizations be in your opinion? I'm currently about 5'9" or so, would you suggest any major changes for my build?

BuckmasterAR6 months ago

like me get this straight, you are able to fit inside of it right, b/c when I looked inside of the helmet file, it seems to be reinforced across the inside towards the front, is this correct.

Hello. I have a question for the author who made this suit. I have a person claiming these pictures as his own. His name is Brad Evans and he lives in TN. He is wanting to trade for this suit he claims to have made but the images he texted are these above. I am wondering if this is a scam because I always do my homework before hand. Please let me know ASAP!!!! Thank you so much. PS This suit is amazing to whoever did actually make it. Thanks again!

sekkei (author)  zache6 months ago
Hello, sure is scam, as far as I know the new owners of both of my suits they still have them, one suit is in California and the last and second one is in New York, and the name you gave to me doesn't match any of the actual owners.
Beware and thanks!

Also, what do you use for a foundation or support when gluing the pieces together to ensure accuracy?

props to you man! I tried this method, and I only did the helmet. The rest was just too much time, money, and glued and burned fingers! I'm moving to the foam method for the suit now. Congrats bro. That's dedication ;)
