1st Build Halo 3 odst 3d print build.

I'd say go for the tint. If you think it's coming off too much you can always wipe it all away with a damp cloth. I tend to have to re-apply chrome to my visors every once in a while if they get too see-through.

Thanks for the advice!
I think it was your video that gave me the precaution not to just spray it haha! So thank you for that as well!
 
Alright, new update!
Due to how concave it is I believe it won't work with film unfornatuatly. Womp Womp.
Gotta go get me some Chrome spray.
Got any suggestions?
At the moment I'm looking at
Ultimate Mirror Chrome Aerosol Paint 3.5oz Amazon.com
From the online reviews it looks ok but are there any opinions out there?

The SpazStix one from Amazon you have linked there will work, and is many member's go to aerosol/rattle can chrome. I have used it myself. You will not be able to get as smooth as finish or application with it, as you would with an airbrush, but, it will work and give you the desired effect.
 
Yes I would highly suggest using spazstix with an airbrush
Another brand that works great is this one here if you can't get your hands on spazstix
Even a cheap $30 airbrush (if you already have a compressor) will do the job great!
 
Allright after a couple of practice runs with the paint, I changed my hoodie!

How did you go about attaching the elbow piece to the forearm piece? I’m currently building this same set. I just think standard adhesive wouldn’t hold them well from being knocked off.

I used e 6000 for all my joints.
For parts that I was concerned for past that I used a soldering iron with some of the same plastic and welded them together.
If you are using the same set as me the joint where the meet should sort of friction stick to each other when standing upright, sometimes I had to sand one of the sides until it did.

Great idea! Thanks!

So I’ve got another question that might be a little in depth for this build.

I’ve scoured the forums and other places on the internet to no avail in finding one of these builds using these files. You’re the first person I’ve seen doing the Galactic Armory Rookie 3D print build. There is a huge lack of guides on how to attach all of the pieces together with some kind of rigging system.

Have you figured any type of system out on how you would be able to connect things like the chest pieces with the straps, and even the belt/cod piece/side plates on the waist? There seem to be almost no points of rigging for these pieces, without coming up with some way of gluing straps on or something.

Some of these pieces almost make me want to start over with the Aguilar Workshop suit since he has a built in rigging system.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Galactic Armory has some videos showing g how they put their kit together. I’m making their ODST Rookie and will be playing with how to connect everything this weekend. My thoughts are the E6000 like Sharpfang was mentioning, and then some nylon straps and buckles to help secure things into place. It won’t be a perfect recreation of the game, but it’ll be unique to your persona.

I personally have not gotten far enough to experiment with that!
Sorry I cant give any advice in that department, work has had me beyond drained most days and my progress has kind of stalled out.
Wish I could give you some kind of advice with it!
