    Carnage's Mk Iv Build Wip

    I had the same damn problem with my mark iv chest piece. I scaled it according to my height of 70 inches and it came out waaay too small. I have had to start from scratch even though i had the whole thing resined. the belly was too thin and the chest front was too short.

    Eva Visor
