Hey guys. I decided that I was going to take a break on my Mark VI upgrades and make a Halo Reach foam suit. I'm picking up a foam roll tonight and WILL have some pieces done by tomorrow. I've worked with foam before and I'm prepared to take on the challenge again! Here is the foam roll I will be using... http://www.sears.com/rollup-mat-shock-athletic/p-00614724000P?prdNo=15&blockNo=15&blockType=G15

It's thinner than the anti-fatigue foam interlocking mats and is way easier to work with. It also holds up super well (I know beacuse I used it on a majority of my Mark VI suit and it held up all day at the con with only one little tear). I will be using L3X's files for this build ( found here http://www.405th.com/showthread.php/33480-L3X-s-File-Database ). Here is the spartan that I will be making

Got the biceps templates cut out last night. I'll probably get one or both of them done by tonight, so there will most likely be an update tonight. Stay tuned and also, I LIKE CRITICISM, keeps me motivated. :)

Those hand plates look good. This is definitely one of the bulkier versions of the Reach armor. You are going to look like a frakking tank, brother.

I know right! I love the "tank-ish" look, makes me look taller than I am! XD ( I'm like 5"3 LOL)

Got one bicep done, but I don't know does it look to big, or can I still use it?

Yeah, what I'm going to do is the make the chest piece first, and then resize the bicep if needed.
