    Satchmo III I am glad to see you back active on the forum and knocking stuff out. As always your stuff is great as is your commitment to contributions on the forum. I can't begin to tell you how many of your files i have used and referenced over the years!

    If you have not already it would be great if you could post these files in the armory discussion threads for each set so we can update the downloads in the future as well.

    SPEIGHTY this is some really good stuff to answer your specific unfolding questions!

    oh and Art Andrews! Look!

    HOUSEKEEPING UPDATE...

    Arsenal images at the beginning of the thread have been updated with more colors and a setting (images copied below). I tinkered with simulating detail on the individual models via smooth-shading and surface-subdivision but axed the detail and kept the hard edges...I've worked hard on all those polygons and I didn't want to obscure them too much.

    Thanks for the response Asgard! Happy to hear I've helped. I'll look into the armory business.

    WIP UPDATE...

    I've been working on a full set of SPI armor on and off for a week or two. I'm not done but I wanted to share some renders of the WIP before I take a break for a bit. Like the helmet I posted a while back the armor set is primarily based on art by Tekka-Croe at deviantart (Semi-Powered Infiltrator). Intent is for pepakura development but once I'm done I may detail it out more. III out.

    WIP UPDATE (SPI armor)...

    Thanks for the feedback mkshane81 and xtrem1275!

    I spent time this weekend reshaping/refining and am happier with most of the parts. There are a few more things I plan on cleaning up before completing/sharing. For the pepakura release I intend on omitting the buckles and straps (except the main shoulder straps) and the ab/groin plates will be one part that is separate from the rest of the torso.

    Below is a turn-table of where the model is as of now. Take care four-oh-five!

    It looks excellent as it is, I asked if you could share it as is and if you can .obj format because I would like to make a papermodel with your model to do it in 1/6 scale thanks for your prompt reply good afternoon

    xtrem1275, the armor parts (and the modeled body) are not one cohesive mesh but you can resize the pepakura files that will be available soon.

    ADD UPDATE (SPI ARMOR PEPAKURA)...

    I'm pleased to say that I've completed the remaining SPI armor parts along with unfolds. I've been wanting to do this since 2012 when I first made a different version of the SPI forearm. Download links are below and at the beginning of the thread. Please remember to check scaling and modify to suit your needs. I hope to see an SPI build someday!

    At the bottom of post I've inserted a rendering emulating a portion of the Ghosts of Onyx book cover with a slightly more detailed version of the armor set.

    ADD UPDATE (LEGENDS HELMET JOHN PEPAKURA)...

    I wanted to have a go at a Master Chief helmet so I dug back into The Package from Halo Legends for reference to make John's Mark-IV bucket. Modifying game assets is cool and all but I like developing models that are not otherwise available. I hope someone out there has been jonesing for this and will attempt assembly...if so good luck!

    Thanks Matt, hope your projects are going well.

    I had been looking to finish the armor and put it into a thread for long time. Dry those tears and continue forging.

    Thanks xtrem1275!

    Glad you're still around sometimes. Have you built anything recently? Take care!

    WIP UPDATE...

    I intended on uploading Fred's Mark-IV helmet tonight but I'm still tweaking a few things and I'm not up to the unfolding process tonight anyway. I'm excited though to complete the surviving Blue Team Mark-IV set...so here's a preview render of Fred alongside his fellow teammates.

    ADD UPDATE (LEGENDS HELMET FRED PEPAKURA)...

    Frederic-104's Mark-IV helmet has been uploaded to the beginning of the thread (and below). This helmet wasn't initially appealing to me but I've come to appreciate its similar but distinct form.

    ADD UPDATE AND COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITY...

    An H5 deadeye helmet model has been uploaded to the beginning of the thread and below. The PDO file (intended for pepakura) hasn't been unfolded yet and I'd like to see if another person wants to work up an unfold for the community. If you'd like to participate please download the file, open it in Pepakura Designer and click the [undo unfold] button to start. Keep in mind that Pepakura Designer only lets you save if you've purchased a key for the full version. When you're done post a link to your unfold in a PM to me or in a post below and I will revise the beginning of the thread with the updated file and credits.

    If you're new to unfolding and would like to give it a go, but don't know where to start...you could check out my unfold tutorial or others on youtube. Mine is pert long but it shows the full process for how I perform unfolds.

    Thanks in advance four-oh-five!

    ADD UPDATE AND UNFOLD REQUEST...

    Since no one has stepped forward yet to unfold the H5 deadeye helmet there is but one course of action...uploaded to the beginning of the thread and below is an H3 recon helmet that needs an unfold. Are you willing to take on this challenge in order to haz recon? If so, please PM me or post a link to your unfold below and I'll upload it to the beginning of the thread (and share it with the armory). Later Nobles!

    Any chances you'd think about providing the more detailed files? I'm looking to build SPI super soon, and your files are by far the most useful resource available, however in my own projects I find the more detailed the base file the better. Files with the straps and extra details would be beyond useful even just as a 3D reference.

    Having just tackled the iconic ODST

    and also just having read Last Light and Retribution, I'm really hyped to make SPI and hoping to make it the most detailed and accurate costume as I can.

    I haven’t seen this build anywhere? Where’d this come from? Last thing I saw you build was the red reach set.
    This is awesome I’d like to see more.

    I've been a bit naughty and not posted anything about the build on here, I did however post a few bits and pieces on facebook and instagram, and you can find me under the same handle on both.I might see about making a retrospective write up however.
