The Quest for the Best Suit!

I've had my white and yellow suit for some time now, built it back in 2016, and since I've had it I've gone through 2 helmets, 2 sets of thighs, 3 cod pieces, and various other pieces. Looking at you shin pieces that need fixed every time :mad:. But now after the release of Halo Reach on MCC, and access to better files, I plan to rebuild the suit from the ground up and make it as accurate as possible.
I've already started on a few pieces, including the helmet and the chest piece, and I've gotten some help in 3D printing a visor buck to be formed. Always got to pick the hardest and rarest helmets out there, I don't know why I do this to myself lol.

Visor buck is inserted as well to show what it will eventually look like, plan to have it in gold with the mirror finish.

New upgrades are looking great!

If you're shooting for "game accurate" I notice that there's a couple details that aren't on the new chest piece. The game has 2 shield emitters on the right side of the front panel, as well as a rectangularish thing on the left. There's also an I/O panel on the ribcage, but admittedly I'm missing the dials on mine. Torso's looking great though! Huge upgrade over the other one!

Thanks Ranger, the reason I left those out though is because I'm adding the UA Base Security attachment onto the chest eventually. Effectively the add on will cover up those pieces so I don't think I'll be needing them, thanks for the heads up though. Plus, you gave me these files so feel free to smack me back in line more often if I miss something again lol :p

UPDATE!!
Just finished the biceps and shoulder attachments this past weekend. Rock Lobbster is kindly printing me some more rifle bullets to go on the sniper shoulder. I'm also learning that my chest piece and the Security shoulder do not get along well when worn together lol. May need to figure something out on that one. Up next is the forearms and hand plates, and I'm also working on a new weapon, the M319 Grenade Launcher.

UPDATE!!
The forearms are coming along nicely. They still need a few more 3mm details added, but already a huge step up from the old ones. Everyone told me the arms are the most difficult part, and I can see why, but with one more forearm and the hand plates to make I'm pretty much done with them already. Next after these I want to try and make both the knives from foam. I really don't want printed ones, especially since the weight of the kukri will try and drag the shoulder down fierce.

UPDATE!!
UA Base Security plate added onto the chest piece. Combat Knife also built and added onto the chest piece. Made the Kukri Knife and added it to the Security Shoulder. And lastly made the hand plates, though they may need to be remade they might be too small. Next up is the cod piece, then it's on to the legs.
