Hey bros and broettes
I have a new project, full scale colonial marine armour, problem is the files have fallen off the face of the earth, I've been looking for 3 hours, the original posters (405th) website has been down for ages. I found 1 file which got my hopes up, but it was gone.
I've done resin armour before, I tried to make a spartan suit, but only got as far as the helmet. Thankfully this whole set of armour will be about as labor intensive as that one helmet.
If anyone has the files squirreled away on some corner of the internet, I would be thankful. I need to start this pretty soon for comicon.

what kind of materials/printers do you guys usually use for your papercrafting?
I recently bought a Cannon MG4620 inkjet printer for my papercrafting, and have been trialing different paper thicknesses [I've started with 100gsm and 120gsm papers so far, and have some 160 and 200gsm paper to trial too [i've found 120gsm to be way to thin for anything that i plan to fibreglass later on [i.e. an iron man helmet i'm trying to make], but I've started making howl's moving castle using 120gsm and i get the feeling that thicker papers might be too tricky to work with.]]. I'm using Elmer's 'washable clear school glue' since I couldn't find any alternatives that were easily available at the time.
Also, I have some obj files that i want to send into the wild, since it'll be ages before i do anything with them, and it would make me happy to know that someone else would enjoy having the model files on hand to pump out some awesome papercraft at some point. What would be the best way to go about uploading them?
