THANKS!

now if only i could find out #4 before i begin?
Check in the scaling tutorial and see if anyone who has made armor is about 5'5" and put their scale... use that one if they did...

so i should use like 25.04? cause i wanna make the helmet "somewhat" large so it will last.

Well if you want to... It's your decision... I'd say... Go For It... :p

more questions!

i got the bulk of my cutting done (8 pieces left, took me 2 hours)

and want to prep my mind with some questions:

1. about how long does it take to glue and fold everything together?

2. what number should i begin with? (someone said start at the chin for more structure?)

3. any tips or advise when putting it together? (i am using low-temp hot glue)

thanx
