I have plans to do an extensive stryfe modification my plans are to make a shell to make a stryfe go from this Posted Imageto this[.img]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121117115426/halo/images/thumb/7/7d/H4_suppressor_trans.png/250px-H4_suppressor_trans.png[/img]
now what would be the best materials(in your opinions) to make a shell to put on the stryfe. I was thinking a type of foam being the on the bottom and epoxy putty on the top.

I would cover the stryfe in modeling clay and build the shape and details with the clay. Then I would build a mold using the clay model and plaster. Next up would be to cast a fiberglass shell inside the plaster mold and attach it to the stryfe.

Don't make "what is best" or "tell me how to" threads.

Also the suggestion to use clay and fiberglass is a terrible one.

A suggestion to make the process easier than using modeling clay and fibreglass would be to use a foam of some sort and carve out the suppressor with a cavity on the inside to fit your stryfe (don't forget to make a way for changing magazines/clips)

Here's a link to a build of the standalone prop but you could figure a way to integrate the blaster onto the design

If the link doesn't work for some reason just look up "halo 4 prop suppressor"
