You dont haft to do it again (if they arent superbig holes)..

And it may look huge cause you scaled it wrong or didnt..

Ok well if you didn't scale anything don't bother fixing the holes cause you will need to do it again. An unaltered scale (like what you did and I did the first time) is for someone who is 7 feet tall. My helm was also huge and I had to redo it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. But at least you caught it early and you didnt finish any other parts.

I agree. Those files are set up for a titanic sized human. Scale that thing down or else you will finish the suit and wonder why the top of the shins are brushing the inside of your thighs...and for that matter why the helmet makes you look like one of those mushroom dudes in Mario.

Check out the scaling thread...

http://405th.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1804

I know how you feel, I screwed up the size twice. I made three helmets, the first two took me a week each to make. The last one only took a few days because I knew what I was doing. I use these steps to make all my pepakura pieces.

Cut out all pieces
Pre-fold all pieces
Layout and match all numbers
Assemble

You will waste a lot of time stopping to perfect folds and finding the right pieces.
