    I just starting out on a Noble 6 build this summer, I found this site on a link from a SFX site (yes it was the old Indy Mogul) and well here I am. I'm looking at a pic of a noble six as ref.

    Side note: I've never seen the game and with having a XP computer it doesn't look like I'll see it any time soon.

    Dang, nice work. the armor peping looks real clean, the only problem is the camera quality isn't the best :/ keep the good work up and i'll be sure to watch your progress.

    (The pic in the first post is the edited new chest as of now. This build had changed in mid build when I found out what it was supposed to look like. But I had to leave in some of the old post so this thread would make sense to new readers.)

    Personally, I would probably go with the standard Mark V [B] helmet. It's the one that Noble 6 is wearing in the game. Unless you like one of the other helmets, then go with one of those. It really just depends on what helmet you like the most and would enjoy working on the most.

    And I see you live in michigan too. I am wanting to get my build done for the Motor City Comic Con in May. Due to the cold weather, I am going to be doing the foam build instead. Plus all that sanding, fiberglass, resin.............it's too much for me and too much of a pain to do. Especially since I found myself outside at 11pm working on it in my driveway! XD I would rather be indoors where I have more light and can see better. Plus I can sit in my living room and watch tv while I work on my armor. hehe If you don't mind scrapping what you got now, I would recommend trying the foam instead. It's lightweight and seems to have better mobility than the "rock hard" armor. XD But with the foam, you gotta have templates unless you think you can scratch build it. I'm just going to be using the pepakura files and modify them to create some better templates to use and trace onto the foam.

    Good luck with your build though.........however you plan on doing it.

    Thanks HaloGoddess, can you give me the link to that mark V (B). I thought I had them all up to date but it seems as I've either missed it, or placed in the wrong folder. thx. I seen you're name on some unfolds...what all have you done?

    What size is your torso piece, because I tried that one (by L3X) and it came out too large. Also, looking good.

    Thank you very much Rhinoc. It would have taken a few more days to find that one. Pls feel free to add me to you're updated pep file list ( if there is one) thank you again.

    What size is your torso piece, because I tried that one (by L3X) and it came out too large. Also, looking good.
    I'm 5' 9'' 170Lb med build most of the pep file fit me nice. some I need to elongate (once I fig out how) as for this chest Yes I could have cut it down by 10% but being its very hot at most con. I set it up to handle my Coolant sys that I wear under reg armor. Its an extra 8'' around my upper body so thats added into my fig. I just hope the rest of the Halo armor is in pa-portion. but if not I know I will be redoing the forearms and shines later in HD. I just need to finish what I started first.

    (Edit) tried it on today had to rip it, to fit it. But yes it fits with the extra room and I can put my arms down, was worried about that when I found out it was made by a 6'6" person. all is good.

    The latest up date: Tapered lower chest to fit.


    Looks like I have to rescale the shoulders to fit the upper so I'll be doing that this week end.

    NOTE: to all people starting off, if you've notice that I upgraded my chest and had to re-scale most of my upper body parts. I would say to you pick a build and stay with it.
    I have a few months of cold so I have time, but it wasted allot of time and mat.

    the new Shoulders. Added 20% to them to make them fit the scale.
    Working the Biceps now to make fit scale.
