    Dec 10, 2014, 4:27 PM - Halo Reach: Carter Foam Build #1

    Hey Everyone! quick thanks for stopping by

    Im building my own Carter A259 armor for DragonCon next year! I wanted to wait until i had a few pieces made to start posting stuff so here it goes..give me some feedback, im open to constructive criticism. Certain part im going to do a little different, but ill be sure to go through the process on here as I get to those pieces. Also I'd like to thank Justinian117 and mwmanus for the tips and tricks and all of the help to get this thing started!

    **side note, the bicep is a tad unfinished and will need to be redone and im going to do it possibly a little differently, as far as the template goes, and its also my first build, sooo please be gentle haha

    it got kind of hairy towards the wrist, but i think it turned out pretty good!
    I also need to figure out how to open the back towards my forearm a little more, any ideas anyone? or should I just redo the whole thing?

    ALSO note that this is the left wrist where the tac-pad/my iPhone will be so i dont care to cut out the top part, it wont be seen anyways

    That's a solid start there mate. Keep it up! Always great to see a reach build. Even better to see a Noble Team build. Send me a PM if you want to pick my brains. Happy to help.

    Since this thread has more views, I'm going to dump here and the other thread. A lot has been made, and I still have a few things to finish..last update before dragoncon and when I head out, I'll do a final update then. Everything has turned out well so far, I'm pretty happy with it for a first build. ill post pictures when I get home. For some reason I can't do it on my phone. Stay tuned!!!


    some quick pics/ test fit

    He used my foam files, which I believe the thighs were actually just a modified version of L3X's thigh file, which you can find on his file database
