EDIT:
Progress is ongoing and steady updates. I need advice on how some of these are scaled! offer please.

I did a lowdef helmet cuz my last ODST got smashed in a move so i wanted to get one back quickly, but after inspection i noticed it was missing key details.

So I had an Idea; to splice on the details from another model, this way I get the ones I want without having to commit to a fully high def model :p

I think it went in nicely

Then this was the progress with the torso

And the little detail I was proud of doing XD

This was when the torso didnt have the back finished so dont get excited just yet

And this is it done, now it IS a little big. I lost my master scaling skills in a year :(

So i wanted to cut the sides and bring them in so they dont stick out so much, and trim a little off the shoulders for better mobility. Possible?

well, im not popular :( oh well XD

Redid the torso at scale about 2 inches shorter on the sides, its pepped and getting fiber glassed. I'll put up pics when its done.

I've noticed this as well, there has been a bit of a decline with responses to WIPs. The same thing has happened to my build (granted I haven't had an update for a while) but after over 350 views, there were only 4 responses.

Beyond that, your pepping skills are great. I personally would have started over on the ODST helmet and wasted a ton of time rather than what you did and incorporate HD portions that you need. Good thinking. Can't wait to see more pics.

Your not alone there, I don't receive a large amount of replies like others, and right now my wip is up to three posts in a row >.< The helmet looks really nice, especially with added details.

The only thing is I tried to modify the sides to fit better, But im gonna end up reprinting out those pieces and repep 'em onto the piece.

If anyone wonders why it looks like that. . . I use aqua resin.

I don't like double posting, so im doin this. Chest is all fiberglassed and the resin is sanded down some. I'm goin to wall mart tomorrow for foam, and a couple other things. Expect a bunch of updates SOON!
 
What chest model did you use? Can i get a link to it?
The chest file he used should be in the Halo Reach file thread, along with almost everything else.

Great work though! The chest looks great. Your limited to like an hour a day and doing a lot more work then I am. Although I'm lazy when it comes to chemicals and cutting.

The front of the chest is almost done, only a couple things, but mostly its just fine tuning some sanding to make it extra nice! Its SOO Smooth on the top... XD

IMG01191-20120616-2308

This is the only other part I have to work on. Not sure how I'm gonna get those details in this!

The back i started on a bit ago, just never did too much to.

IMG01188-20120616-2308

Just kinda showing off, I got it a lil heavy. I weighed it in at 10 pounds! (just the back) But im gonna cut that side off and strap it to the back and get some clips for the front. That way I won't have to worry about the two lining up. Also make for easy storage :D

The bicep-ish piece. The other is at that point too, just needs a lil love!

But as you can see, the side was so warped, I just trashed it. It was ok, only about 6 hours of work to finish one. So I edited the unfold a bit and am giving it another go.
