    Halo: Reach Recon Build

    My head is about 26cm tall (Chin to top of head) so i made the helmet 1 inch taller (about 28cm) and the helmet fit snugly but nowhere near tight. When i put the helmet on it touchs the top of my ears but thats because of the bigger hole i made.

    Halo: Reach Recon Build

    Thats a good question :) Personaly i found doing the chest easier. The chest has loads of big pieces and is open (holes for the arms, neck and waist). The helmet can be tricky to do at some points because theres 1, 2 if you dont pep with the visor, openings (the neck). Hope that answers it :D
