How to make a Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Terminator Suit? Answered

I see on Youtube plenty of Space Marine suits but none of the elite Terminators, if someone could respond with some useful information on making one l would be grateful. Respond with any advice or how to's, please. They look like this:


Not sure if this can help you, there is a program called pepakura, it lets you build 3D models, i have the Grey Knights terminator PDO files, this is Pepakura files, it builds the complete suit out of paper or cardbord, after this you could fibreglass it and spray it, just msg me if you want the files,i have alot of warcraft files and gundam as well

Do you still have the files? I'd like to give them a try. Please email me here or at sthorsson99@yahoo.com.

Terminators are like 10 freaking feet tall. Good luck with this.

Work on it one piece at a time. The shield and hammer are relatively easy. So is the backpack; you could start with a cardboard mockup and then paint and attach things and paper-mache and so on until it looks right. The shoulder pieces, because they're curved, might be more difficult but paper mache would work, or maybe you could cut down a couple of plastic balls. The knee pads are also complicated; I'd try making them out of plastic foam and painting them, I think. Then all you need to do is build the helment, and find black clothing to wear under these pieces (black hides a multitude of errors)...

Well, I forgot to say that the small details like the ornate knee pads and other things aren't important now, neither are the shield or the hammer. But thank you anyway.

Here's a better frontal picture, color scheme not important.

For a brief turn on stage, or maybe to survive a single costume party: Cardboard, paper mache', foam, hot glue, paint....

Anything more durable is going to take more time, money, and skill.
