Thank youAh yes! Nice to see this thread moving again (Unlike me lol)
As a continuation of my quest for more mobility (and better scaling), the thigh pieces were next. However, with my old thigh pieces, they felt too big (flopped around) and I couldn't sit in them (due to fear or breaking and because when I did, the front portion raised a lot making me look like an idiot because the back portion was pressed against my bottom). I measured them to be 40 cm's heigh.
I'm struggling to choose between reprinting the thigh pieces smaller (a weak prototype is 500 grams of filament and almost 2 days of printing, not something I want to screw up), or using the landfall or reach's ODST thigh armor which is just a plate that attaches to the side of the leg. This way I can sit and it's hopefully more comfortable. I tried searching the 405th for examples of both and experiences with them but nobody mentions sitting in their armor and how well it goes Furthermore, models for landfall ODST thighs are surprisingly lacking, so I'll have to design them on my own. Furthermore, the reach and landfall ODST thigh pieces are radically different from the halo 3 ODST pieces, which is the suit I'm aiming for with accuracy.
Does any of you have experience with this? I'd love some input before I make such a decision.
