    Good afternoon all!

    I am building a 'placeholder' Shadow Guard for use at conventions and Halloween until I can get a 501st approved version ready. I'll be using Pepakura for the hard parts, but after my first assembly I realized that not only are the existing parts too small, they are not even in scale with each other! Primarily the Chest/Back are the biggest problems for me so far, and the FISD page didn't seem to have any easily found references for these. What part of me should I measure to get the pep scales correct so that the fit me properly?
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Close. I know how to resize an existing file, I'm trying to find out what parts of 'me' to measure so that I can change the PDOs to fit me without resorting to multiple printings/test fits.
