Read the last few pages on the Pepakura Scaling sticky, my bicep piece is scaled to 20

The place to measure on your upper arm is the circumference around the arm located just above the inside bend of the elbow.

Do you know the formula for figuring out your scale size? If not, add up your hieght in inchest, divide it by 86 and then multiply by the current scale to get what you should be. People might say otherwise, but the biceps and forearms HAVE to be scaled differently because the Master Chief is not a properly proportioned human being (even though he is so cool!)

That's for sure. I scaled my helmet to 23 from I think the default 32 or something huge like that. All the pieces are scaled for a 7 foot tall super soldier that is probably pretty ripped and therefore needs big bicep pieces :D
