Nice work, loving that lego tower in the background too!
This looks great! Are you reinforcing your prints with anything? I’ve seen some people use fiberglass resin on the inside. I’m thinking of doing the same for my suit but I know it adds a lot of weight. The color pops! I’ll stay tuned to see if complete::update:: 5/1/23
Small and lengthy update. Lol. Got a lot of little things done. Got the biceps painted and Velcro-ed so that they will attach to my shoulder harness. Which I was given the idea by a fellow 405th member at planet Comic-Con. I apologize for not remembering his name. A lot has happened since then.

Then I got the magnet setup and painting done on my thighs. I can attach the pistol to either thigh with no problem. I’m think about printing grenades to attach to the other hip. Like how they were displayed in halo 3.

And with that the wrists are the next thing in the works. I can’t 100% decide if I want to do the grapple attachment for it or not. I have an idea on how I would get the magnets to work for it, but can’t decide if I want to right now.
More updates to come
I use fiberglass resin to smooth layer lines of smaller prints like the biceps and forearms. But things that could take a beating, like the chest, helmet, and legs, I resin the outside to smooth and resin reinforce with mesh on the inside. So a mix of both on big parts. Also helps keep weight evenly distributed. Thanks man! I’m trying to yo my game with each turn. Seeing other suits in person always gives me more ideas.This looks great!

I think I agree with n8tebb about the short shin, though maybe it makes it more comfortable to move around in? An extra 2 inches at the bottom and moving it up might look better.Hmm if you're looking for honest feedback I think making a taller shin wouldn't hurt. There's quite a bit of space even on the front that you'd want to fill with an under suit. Either way, making an under suit would do you good! I don't have experience with printed under suits so I can't give feedback there. Looks great dude!
