N7 Backplate: Part 1

Source photo from game

Created a template for the "backpack"
Bought a mobile power pack and LED lights.

Drilling holes in the back plate to make room for the wires and battery

Layered and glued EVA foam, then sanded to shape
Epoxy to make it solid and smooth
"Red Sand" bondo to make it even more perfect

With base layer of black paint


  1. Where did you get the lights and power pack? Was it difficult to hook up?

  2. Yeah, I think so. I feel like it would just be incomplete without the lights. How did you make the gel?
