i am making this thread to ask and answer strictly about individual scaling sizes for individual pieces of armor. I'm making this for the purpose of feasibility of knowing how to scale instead of spending hours on end looking for a individual piece of armor. Enjoy!!! :lol
both u guys dont understand, not everyone is smart enough to understand ur thread. Wheni started, i really didnt understand it, believe it or not, but it was kind of hard to find the proportions. this thread is for SPECIFIC pieces of armor, saving time and effort.
That tutorial covers 4 of the 5 well-known scaling methods. The only remaining scaling method not shown in that thread is Abrant3's scaling method. Its done in a similar way that Methods #3 and #4 are in my tutorial, but his method is purly for scaling Spartan Mark 6 armour.
Generally, they use the author's specific directions for scaling, or measure specific body points on reference pics, then measure their own. Input it into the box, and boom. Plus, there WILL be trial and error. Everythings not perfect the first time... Look at bevbor. He spent a ton of money cutting out metal to make his Br. way too small. A mistake, but next time, he'll make sure it's the right size. If at first you don't succeed...
I'm going to have to agree with The King Cobra and Xtreme TACTICS 101.
"Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime."
I'm all for helping people make armor and having the 405th community grow and thrive, but simply handing out answers is not the way to do it. On top of the great links XT101 just posted, there are dozens of threads concerning scale and how to go about getting something to fit right. It's better to teach people to scale themselves, so they aren't in threads like these asking over and over how to do something.
Your urge to help is appreciated, and encouraged, but we would rather teach than simply walk people through the process.
