I already posted some of my work on this build on the Facebook page but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to share the build here as well.

I’ll be sharing photos of each piece/section as it’s completed or significant progress is made.

I use pep files as a base for most of my templates but for most pieces end up hand editing them on paper to get some of the more unique curves/bevels and other details not present on the lower poly game model.

The first piece built was the Mk 6 GEN 2 Forearms

Next I built the shoes starting with the toe cap, top of the boot and then the heel.

I always use non lace slip on shoes for my boots and glue the pieces directly to the shoe. For the top piece I added a small piece of foam between it and the toe cap to keep everything at the correct angle.

I started the shins last night and was able to get the Shinobi shins started off with a pair of solid knee caps, I’m very happy with how they turned out. I’ll be tackling the piece right below the knee (green arrow) next and then the piece right above the ankle (red arrow).

I was working on them for awhile and am keeping all of the trim pieces, I know some people get rid of those on foam builds

Spidermonkey60, Awesome looking boots man......Nice cut lines and details. Glue point on the heels are showing a bit but those can be cleaned up easily. Great job man.

Thank you! I haven’t done clean up on that piece yet, the heel was the last piece I did for the boots but when I hit it and the shin I’ll go back and touch it up.

Progress was made tonight, not much but the piece below the knee is done and I’ll be doing the piece around the ankle next. It’s already traced so I just need to cut and assemble it.

Also I am going to make my unfolds for the legs available when I am finished, can someone point me in the direction of where to submit those? I actually have a backlog of various armor files that I could upload.

I may be wrong, but if I needed to upload the file to the archive I would message Art Andrews. I haven't uploaded anything in quite a while, not sure if we still can upload directly anymore?

I think it has to be approved as not to double....triple......quad ++++ the amount of files in the armory. So yeah I would send Art a message to check first.
