I did quick scale check, and Chief without armor is 6'10 (208.28 cm), according to the halo wiki, and 5'8 (172.72 cm). So i turned that into inches, then divided chiefs height by mine and got 1.20. So i then took the carbine length, which is 50 inches (127 cm), and divided that by 1.20, which yielded 41.6 inches (105.6 cm)
So, my question is, would the subtracted 4 (101.6 cm) inches really make a differnece on the other scaled piece?
Yes, 4" in one direction is a big difference. I think you are spot on with your revised scaling method. I myself am 82% the size of MC and therefore scale my pieces accordingly. As for what you printed, it looks fantastic! And it is not too big, it's pretty big though.
I just always preferred using guns like the BR/DMR/Magnum. Even though the carbine is a pretty good gun, it just always felt sort of weak to me.
I think it turned out way too good to hack it up now. I would think, primer it, sand it, paint it, play with it. If you don't like the feel of it after you've walked around with it for awhile then maybe reprint it. I just see hacking it up and trying to make it look good again being a lot more work than reprinting.
*edit: Plus this is your favorite gun! You telling me you are going to like it just as much after you chop up the proportions?
I would honestly keep it as-is. it would add a cool factor if you stowed it on your back, and then printed a DMR to carry around. Kaween has a good DMR model in the FFA series.
I'm the guy who'd be doing that. I essentially only play FFA, and am high Onyx tier, so I've gotten really good with the halo 5 magnum. It's probably my favorite gun in the series, rivaled only by the halo 2 battle rifle.The DMR is definitely my go to out of those three, BUT when im playing swat, I can go all out with the BR. I dont understand sometimes how people can just straight up gun you down with the magnum only, when you have a BR or DMR lol
