    you would usually build the helmet entire then cut out the back section, this way the two pieces will line up perfectly when worn, use neodymium (rare earth) magnets to attach them together, there are lots of tutorials on youtube

    Thanks. I wish I knew that before I threw the back part out.

    Does anyone know how to get the proportions for someone that is 5'5 for the War Machine MK I me and my friend are supposed to go as Iron Man MK I and War Machine MK I. And if you could also send a tutorial on how to build stuff off Pepakura that'd be great. Thank you.

    You can scale files in 2d menu in pepakura designer 4.Measure each limb/body part separately and scale accordingly.
    For tutorials on how to use pepakura you can either do a search on youtube or on the forum.
    Good luck with your projects and I'm looking forward to your Costume Build Thread

    I've seen a lot of requests for it...

    User ZombieGrimm on deviant art has the Male Nightingale armor, as well as a NUMBER of other skyrim files.

    Edit: Seeing as how deviant art is a p.i.a. to get anything from... Page 36 of the thread titled "Skyrim Pepakura Files" BY Zombie on the 405th forums contains the indvidual file links to 4shared for the male Nightingale armor.

    Hey JFcustom, I have your unfold of Dancin_Fool's Iron Man mk 3 files, but I was wondering if you have a file for the whole suit? I want to build mine as close to 1:1 proportions as I can but it looks like all of the files are different scales (for example, the helmet is scaled at 0.9, the boots are 40 and the torso is 1.65) :unsure:

    Are these scales relative? Would increasing the size of both the helmet and the torso by 10% keep them both relatively scaled? The last thing I want is to spend months building a suit and find out that it has a bobble head, or that the thighs and shins are a different scale and can't be joined at the knees properly.

    Thanks very much for your help. :)

    The14thDr when in doubt,I would personally search for a complete 3d model,chop it up and scale each limb (derived from the same model) individually.

    I would like to thank you for this board and content. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon this thread and desided to try and make a helmet. First one in paper and that turned out fine, so I did one in metal to learn myself the art of welding and metalworking. Very fun project.

    First I was going to sand it smooth and paint, but I like the raw look so I burned it with flames and polished it with copperpaste and burned it again. Now it reminds me of an ancient knight or gladiator helmet. So I'm thinking of doing some armor too. What you guys think would be most nice? Knight or gladiator.

    Thank again for showing this new world to me :)

    Oh. thank you George. That looks amazing.

    I was thinking to do a more traditional medieval armor. At least some parts, like shoulders, gauntlets och shins.
    These foam files here seems to be perfect for metal too. Is there any gauntlet-templates for foam? Maby some lord of the rings Nasgul? Shins and shoulders/lower arm I think i can just wing it.
