Yeah its so close to being spot on. Honestly it looks good but I dremeled a lot out on the inside but it's still tight. I can bare walk honestly just from my leg flexing inside. I scaled it up slightly bigger just to get it to loosen up a little more. I'm just gonna build another and make it more perfect. HahaThe scale of the thigh is actually pretty spot on. Just comparing with a ref photo the length is just right. You'll just have to adjust it a little so it's not so snug.
Haha thanks man! Chief knows all about the crocs! The first thigh piece was way to tight, couldn't get it on all the way or even walk it was so tight to my quad. Just finished the new slightly scaled up one and its even better seam work and fits perfect!No one going to comment on those tacticool crocs? No one? Bro badass crocs, also the thighs are nice too, maybe some upholstery foam to snug up the thigh, perhaps on the "far" side, like not inner thigh but the outer thigh. Worked for me like (some clever reference someone)
Thanks man!! Yeah these thigh pieces in the last photos are my newest ones and they fit perfectly. It's amazing how scaling up a piece by 1 inch makes such a huge difference to the fitment of a piece. These newest thigh pieces also scale out really close to how master chief looks in the game as far as where they land on the hips and how close they are to the waist piece of the cod. I'm really stoked with how this is coming together. I've actually spent the last few days playing with paint techniques on my spare trashed armor pieces I won't be using so I'm getting a plan going for that and a little practice too. I probably will spend just as much time painting this thing as I have been building it. Haha3/4 of an inch isn't much but if you think they are too tight....you could always splice in a piece on the inner part where no one will see it. Once you post a pic of you wearing it we'll be able to see what you are talking about. But from what I see.....the whole thing looks FANTASTIC!!!!! Cod piece looks ok......don't want to go back to weird.......
Sean Antwalt's tight thighs not withstanding,....... but bringing us right back to weird.
Thanks man! I think the angle of the pics makes the thighs look longer than they actually are. I'm still fitting them with heat and molding around the knee, but i have decent range of motion when bending my knee. I'm using pics of justin branfuhr'so suit as well when scaling and so forth. Playing around when wearing these I have about the same amount of knee showing as his suit does on him. I also talked to him about how he did his paint job so I'm actually going to use a lot of those techniques with the paint too! I'm excited to see it all starting to come together. I really appreciate everyone's feedback!Foam works looking amazing. I think you might run into a small problem with the length of your thighs. You don’t have quite the legs that Chief has length wise. You got the spacing between the cod and thigh looking good. But looks like your going to be bumping into the shins on the other end. This is where video game proportioning and real life human proportions come into play. Hopefully it all works out and I’m wrong. Good luck with the rest of he build. Can’t wait to see the painting stage
Thanks man! Yeah its actually really comfortable. This has seriously been a super fun project. I'll have to find some local 405th friends to do some spartan pics with once it's all doneThat looks really great!! It's probably a lot more comfortable then my fiberglass build from 8 years ago too!! Keep up the good work!! I really want to see what it looks like when you're all done.
