Helmet is looking good.
Noble 6 W.I.P. build ---> http://www.405th.com/showthread.php/...-Spartan-build
Spartans aren't born, they're built, thru blood, sweat, and tears. And maybe a little Fiberglass.
I used a kids Baseball hat they use--- its got nice padding... and I simply hot glued it-- Hard to get out, but not hard enough incase you need to remove it later..
Keep up the build and you will surely finish =D

Re: padding - I don't know if you have Play It Again Sports where you are, but a used sporting goods store has all kinds of padding, as well as guards and other equipment that you can rip the padding out of. I've had tremendous luck finding exactly what I needed for costuming projects at that kind of store. Good for things to rip apart for hardware, too. Best of all - CHEAP. Good luck!
Thanks for comments
Been working 7 day weeks so not too much going on but wanted the front armour atleast coated on the outside with resin by today as going to Greece - Kos tomorrow afternoon for 10 days

I would like to know what you think of my finished costom Halo MK VI build
or you can read my Spartan's story \l/ here
good job so far. are you going with the standard armor or are you going to do some add ons, like the halo 3 custom pieces?
everyone dies, but not everyone lives

I looked at the first pic of the chest piece and I thought that was potpourri under it. Then I thought that was a genius idea for keeping the resin and bondo smell down, hahaha.
It's looking great! I'm afraid of scaling the chest wrong and having to redo it lol.
looking good dude! scaling looks spot on too!
for helmet padding, i would suggest buying a cheap motorcycle helmet and gutting it! i did and it feels so good! as far as scaling, pieces like the arms and legas are easy enough, for my chest tho, i measured from the center of my sternum, to the center of my shoulder joint, then doubled the measurement. and my chest came out perfectly sized! i would also like to bring up scaling the boots. just make it to your shoe size! that way, when you wear it, you can wear comfortable shoes and look proper in them too!
also, and this is just my opinion, you might want to think about adding the ab piece to the armor and hardening it with it, so you get the proper curve and look to the entire piece. thats just my opinion, i did it and it looks great. just some food for thought!
also also, if you are going to use magnets, put some padding between them so they dont chip and break, i use velcro to pad it and to give it that extra hold just to be safe.
keep it up man! the project looks fantastic!
The contemplation of my mind is an enigma...
