Hi you Guys, i always liked the Idea of the FFA and would love to see it go on and spread around.
Somewhat recently i had a chat with mblackwell1002
He encouraged me to contribute to this series, so here we go!
I am also interested in props other than weapons, especially technical gadgets and architectural elements of the halo franchise. I start with one of the greatest Icons - the sacred Icon!
My own recreation of the Delta Halo Index seen in H2 Anniversary.
Feel free to print it for your own private (and only private) use.

It is a small prop, i am not so experienced in 3d modelling, but trevor pointed out to me that encouraging people to try is better than anything. The Beginning is difficult, but tinkering in cad can also be fun! It takes a little
overcoming, just as pepakura does;)

So i have printed this finally.
I downscaled it a little to 20cm (7,87 inches). The original is 1,5 x bigger, but that isn`t handy for me.
Printed on an Ultimaker 3. Have to say i like the quality of it. This machine can do some detailed pieces in a shorter time.
An improvement from my older trys on a DIY-printer(Ultimaker Original).

Have to clean it up (only a light treatment), prime and paint it.
Here some references

Might add some nightglow effect......

Oh snap! That looks fantastic! Can't wait to see the finished result!
Thanks man! I am honestly already finished, but still doing a 2nd paintover. The first time i used masking tape which doesn`t work all that effectively because of the scale and the details of the print. Used old and cheap paint i had and it doesn`t dry in the cold. Colour scheme just a little bit off.

So i had the idea to use my software again to seperate the areas i need and unfold them, use a machine to cut them out and ready are my spray painting templates! Great idea for weapon skins too, because you can make a symmetric logo on an asymmetric surface too!(y)

That is an amazing idea! I don't have the capabilities to pull it off, but I sure do hate how much time is wasted with masking tape.

Nice job on the print too.
