    Very nice! Very detailed explanation on how to use and scale the templates. Can't wait for the rest of the pieces to be released!

    Nice! I get asked for these all the time, but all my templates were hand drawn. I'll be sure to pass along this info to other builders.

    Finally got around to getting the PSDs edited. I'm gonna take them to a print shop and get them printed on one big piece of paper rather than having to slice it up and fit it into normal sheets.

    Definitely the best N7 templates around!

    Curse you for putting these up!

    I have so much to do and so many unfinished projects you have to go ahead and make me want to start yet another one. Why do you do this?

    (seriously thanks for putting these up I love your work)

    The templates are working out great so far... Much easier to scale in photoshop than I feared, since I don't have a lot of photoshop experience. Thanks for the detailed instructions, and looking forward to the rest of the templates.

    I was not prepared for so much positive feedback, thanks guys! I really appreciate it. This certainly makes the time I spend on it.. well.. well spend! I would love to track all the builds that use my templates, so make sure to send me a link of your build once it hits the forums.

    @Dzym
    I giggled a bit of excitement when I saw your pictures. Thanks for sharing! It's great to see that the scaling system works.

    Also, as promised. I have published more templates for you to download. I have added the following templates; Biceps, Thigh, Shin, Boot.

    The only piece missing is the Back Torso. I have run across a minor design flaw in my own build. The collar isn't wide enough, witch stops it from reaching all the way to the neck-guard or front-collar of the front torso. I'm thinking of extending them with a flap on each side. Since most EVA tiles will not be big enough to support the entire piece due to its size.

    As good as the first ones I would say. I have been working on many pieces today... Biceps, Paulders, Gauntles and Thigh and all of them are good. I only found a bit strange the biceps as I am not sure how the upper rectangular pieces works as it has too much height but I guess it was big enough to cut it afterwards isnt it?

    Other than that perfect and straightforward

    Thanks a lot!

    Good news everyone. The Back Torso templates are up, completing the entire set. You can find the templates for the Back Torso here. Enjoy, and as always keep me posted on your builds! I would love to track them.

    @Steampunch; Looking very good! Can't wait to see more

    Thanks Narayas! I will probably give it a try today. Our progress is kind of slow as we are trying to learn how to work with foam but we are on it too

    @Canobi; My pleasure!

    @The Death Angel; I understand your plight, it was quite a search to find a place in the Netherlands that would sell EVA foam. The places with the highest possibility to find EVA foam are:

    - major sports stores (the tiles are often used as floor padding for heavy weight and fitness)
    - baby safety departments/stores (Silly place? Why yes. Another application for the foam is making baby boxes a little bit more bearable if you move around on all fours)
    - Home improvement stores (Home to many types of tiles and foam, and they might just have it in that exact combination)
    - Amazon & Ebay (but you already knew that, shipping cost may be a turn off)

    Are you a Dutchmen? Then have a look over here.
