From personal experience, you need to mix all three scaling methods together. When I made my suit earlier this year, I spent most of last year peping files until they fit. My final armour is still too big but it was a good attempt for my first try.I got a few questions. I decided to build this armour and since its my first time building an armour i'm gonna have a hard time for sure. how tall are you? and How did you scale it so it can match your height? Because Because i'm using some scaling tutorials that i found here and I did my arm piece but it does not seem the right size. These are the tutorials i'm using and have used. I've used this one for the helmet but it turned out small so I stopped half way through it. http://www.405th.com/showthread.php?t=31627 and right now im currently using this one for the arm peice which it also came out small. http://www.405th.com/showthread.php?t=25588
Happy 405th Anniversary Commander. Hope all your builds come out the way you would like them to. Cheers.
Happy Anniversary Mara!
Thanks, guys. I'm not sentimental. I thought it was just surprisingly nice to see it that I'm still not done after a year, haha. A coincidence that I spotted it, really.Happy Anniversary Commander!

There is no single method that works for everyone, and no single method that will match all suits, you just have to try all them and find the best for you. HaloGoddess is a the most consistent starting method. If you have access to photoshop I would suggest importing a picture of yourself at 10th scale (1cm = 1mm) and then scale an image of the armour to match you. Your still going to have trial and error peping a lot, but you will learn how to do it best after that. I wish you luck.
This is why I love the Scout helmet so much. It's intimidating... While Helljumper (Buck's) helmet is like the cutest helmet ever that I could hardly take seriously. :3That is one intimidating staredown. Nice work. You'll get it done, and it'll be incredible.
Totally agree. Normal selfies are boring, Spartan selfies are awesome.We prefer Spartan selfies, normal women are so passé
Actually, I finished the last parts for the undersuit just today.Do you have an undersuit ready? I may have missed it in all of the awe-inspiring selfies, but that seems like the one thing you're missing for a perfect sans-helmet Palmer.
Yeah, thanks!You've got this!
The detail on that undersuit is amazing, one of the best I've seen
Question: Have you heard of the new Yaya Han hex pattern material that's selling?
Thank you very much, I'm flattered now!Looks sick! (to the point at which the in game model starts to look like the low detail copy.)
