Mark VI gen2 Master Chief / First serious build! (greyboard)

Wow, I took a look to your armor and It is astonishing!! Thanks for the tips for fitting the thigh armor, I may give them a go. Anyway I think that It has a decent looking overall when I´m wearing It. Scaling It down a bit and remaking It´s still an option, despite the work that idea involves. Thanks for the positive comments and likes, they really help me keep me going!
And here is me wearing the armor. Bicep and forearm armor fits pretty good, chest piece doesn´t look that bad at all (I will be wearing a 1/2" undersuit so It may help me look bulkier) however, what I really like about master chief chest armor It´s how It has a really snug fit so, although I like the look of this one I may do It again . The most awkward looking piece is the thigh. That´s my unexperienced opinion so, I´m looking forward to reading from your view!! (Please, dont be gentle with your opinion, I know that perfection doesn´t exist but I want to get as close as I can to It!!)

Pure motivation bud!! Really appreciate It!!
Pd: As a good 117 clon, I won´t identify myself just yet ;)

So far it looks really good! I think the upper body is perfect, I wouldn't change anything about it. As for the thighs I still think it's a little bit large but it could just be the angle of the picture. However IMO it doesn't look bad, my concern is that the shin armor will have to be overall longer than thigh armor so you might have issues fitting all the pieces when you wear everything. But it can fixed, if you're planning to stick to this scale you're just gonna have to wear taller boots that so the leg armor ain't cramped up (I can send pics if u need reference).

Thanks for the opinion!. I will have finished the shin armor in the next couple of A LOT OF HOURS hahaha. This night I will posting a picture with the shin armor aswell and see what I will have to fix.

Aaaand here I´m again!! First thing is first, this will probably be the last armor post because I ran out of hot glue sticks and I cant buy them until the confinement ends ;(. Maybe I will start planning and designing the undersuit and scaling parts that should be scaled. Anyway, this is the progress so far, half and a bit of the suit is done, now It´s time to determine whether I remake pieces or not.

Note that the shin in the full body pictures is a little bit high, It was really hard to keep everything on the right place (I couldn´t wear the belly armor thingy). Taking a look to the pictures, the thing that bothers me the most is the chest, It looks bigger than I want It to look but I still think that is going to be ok once I wear the undersuit, time will tell.
Pd: The piece on the floor is a half of the back armor, It just torn apart :)

The chest looks fine to me. Shin might be a bit short, but that may be due to the height you're wearing it at.

This is my chest, and it looks bulky as well, but it is just right for the suit we're emulating.
I also think your shin armor is a little short, and that thigh armor looks really big.

here’s mine

Yep, both of you are right, I will probably rescale those pieces to get a better looking result. Amazing lookinf armors btw!
