Halo 2/ Halo Reach ODST [Pic Heavy]
Whats up 405th? Havn't been making armor for awhile. I got a lot of pictures. Need to upload them 11 pics in all.
Decided to make the Reach over H3 because it uses more basic and foam friendly pieces, I used TD2253's Foam Templates.
I added a flash light and a mount for my mp3 on the helmet.
Red LED lights a on the inside with some headphones.
I also have a problem with attaching the H3 ODST Chest piece to the Marine chest. Have any Ideas?

Have you been able to upload any pictures yet? And I was thinking that maybe you could try magnets to attach it. I'm not too sure how well it would work out, but in theory, it may be able to.
Pics are up. The problem I'm having is that the H3 chest is curved and the Reach Marine chest isn't.

Yeah it makes sense Noskey, I was thinking of a screw or some type of string to attach them the same way. But Buckles could work.
I think buckles might work a little better, that way it's more mobile/temporary, and not so permanent. Although, I'm not too sure. It's your build, and after all, it's just a suggestion.
I attached the shoulders and Chest piece to the Chest piece, used buckles from my H2 ODST armor and some extra Nylon strapping.
Here is the Chest, I cut the "rib" armor to make it easier to put on, the shoulders are attached with buckles too. They are hot glued on.
I wanted a neck guard used in reach or a similar version, But with the H2 ODST helmet with a lower and more protrusive jaw I went with this. It look more like the H3 Marine neck guard.
What I have so far. I have a knife I made just to have one, I was thinking of attaching it to one of the thigh plates.
Nice progress, its all coming together nicely
Great foam work!
Thanks Cereal Killl3r. Need to buy more straps and buckles for the Belt and thighs plate. Just cause the 405th is awesome, I showed a couple friends armor that was made by fellow 405thers... they are now thinking of making some armor
