Hey, my name is Damon, and I found this website as a result of seeing Barney's Stormtrooper prop on How I Met Your Mother. I eventually I came across this website, and decided a mk 6 would be much more cool! So my goal is to make a suit by Halloween, or the Halo 4 release, figured it'd be cool to show up in a suit.. and yeah here we go..

Started out with the opening, my first 2 seemed too small, and now I fear I went to big, as you'll see in a later post.

Got the top of the helmet put together.
Got the bottom chunk pretty much done, now just to assemble the top with the bottom!
Got everything done, now I'm just going to put in the temporary visor, and resin the outside.
Okay, the I had resin-ed the outside, and now have put Rondo on the inside to strengthen it. Messy lol.. well for me. Good thing I wore coveralls!!
Ok, After strengthening it, I noticed a few problem areas that I'll need to attempt fixing, Although I'm not to sure I'll do a good job with the warped neck, but we'll see what happens:
Bit of a dent in the neck area:
Here's my big concern, the neck got warped..
And here is where it warped a bit up top:
Here's me cutting out the visor, I really must be using it wrong, I went through like 8 blades.. oh well there was 30 and they hadn't been used up to this point lol
OK here is my big worry.. Did I make this too big?? I started off by making 2 of the neck holes gradually getting bigger because they both were to small to fit over my head, but now that I put this on my head I think it might be too big, even though I had to cut out a bit of the sides of the helm opening to get my head in there. But idk maybe with the foam armor it will bulk my body up a bit to kind of match with the helmet. What do you guys think??

I measure my height and put that in my scaling section in pep designer, you can always use the large helmet to practice body work on so I wouldn't trash it

AHHHH!!! Too...Many...FOLDS!!! I mean ill probably attempt it (and fail) cause I'll have to but, jeeze!
