The mark 5 has all that.

<blockquote><blockquote>...that is why I was disappointed when there was no good pepakura patterns for the Mark 5. There are pdo's, but all the edges are messed up, which makes assembling them an absolute chore. I've taken the whole halo one player model, re-deleted the under suit, split up and re-imported them into pepakura designer. I am slowly (read SLOWLY) working my way through each part and unfolding the models to make them much easier to put together (symmetrical whenever possible)

I have all the 3Ds files I broke the model up to on rapid share already.

I have just finished re-folding the chest plate and power pack and I will upload those shortly. If you want to jump ahead take those 3ds files and start upwrapping yourself.
I used the scale 25 and it seems to fix me pretty well (I am 6 1) but since I've only assembled the chest plate I am not 100% sure.

THE SUIT IS DONE.

The old one is definitely a pain. Nice to see folks take an interest in the Mk V.

I want to see some more avatars like mine :love:

shameful part about old games is that for the armor pieces show up only as textures and not a different piece of the model

There is a defect in the backpack on page 8, One of the edges of a polygon is off the margin by a cm. It's not a big problem thats why Im telling you here so you can fix it yourself, when they are all finished and I put them into one package I'll fix it.

Making the backpack right now myself.

got back from set, turns out one of the grips (movie lingo for lights and rigging) is a member of the 501st. We talked costumes!

Anyway, I've finished the helmet (out of order) but I'll post that last because I don't 100% think it actually works. (for some reason the MC1 helmet has this weird internal box that if I try and remove it it fucks up the shape of the helmet (the edge around the visor) I maybe will just have to cut it out when done.

DUDE, i was just thinking why isn't there people out there that want elite costumes. I'm mean people love them on XBL. Except for the fact that they suck in multiplayer games

No updates for awhile.

Everyone, all the right side patterns are messed up.

Seems when pepakura "flips" pattern it does a really crappy job of it. So all the right side patterns are overlapping pieces. Sorry about that. Will fix when I reupload them.

The mark 5 has all that.​




You're a mac user aren't you?​
