    Hey DB... I've printed out one of the lids and started building this morning... unfortunately it wouldn't even fit my 4yr old daughter!

    Qn - What paper/card size are you using? A3? (I used A4) and if printing from the Papakura Viewer, where would you find the correct scaling factors?

    Cheers in advance.

    I don't have acess to my computer today, but I will write a short tutorial on resizing based on your height as soon as I can. It involves math, so get out yer calculators.

    Basically, in the 2d pattern window button on the toolbar, there is an option to scale up by 10%, an option to scale down by 10%, and an option to scale by other. Click the last one.

    Some of you can figure it out from here, (I couldn't) but the rest of you will need help.

    I will post the tut in this thread as soon as I can get back to my computer.

    UPDATE!

    My computer has been a bit dodgy lately, so I haven't been able to work on the armor much, but here is my full size helmet. I have primed it to see the details of what I need to smooth and shape. I have also started to add details. I have not fiberglassed yet because it is too cold and humid here. That may have to wait for spring, but I will get it done as soon as possible.

    On to the pics...












    My son's helmet is 90% done. All it needs is lights and padding. I will post pics when he brings it back from his grandparents house. (He had to show it to his uncle...big Halo gamer.)

    I have started on the chest and backplates, but I will wait to show pics when it is ready for fiberglassing.

    I forgot to mention that it will be black with a silver chrome visor with white led's in the cheek pieces and white el lights on the side vents. It will also have the somewhat grainy texture that the in-game armor has.
