Well this really sucks. I started my helm - Which is a "COMMANDO" helm that someone modelled, because I like the look of it better than master cheifs, but anyway, I got 1/2 way done, before realizing that the scale is too small.
So now I have to re-size it, and start over. A nice waste of 7 pages...
It almost looks like a TRON helmet from the side.
Even if you made the helmet "slightly" too big,you can add foam padding. And if, for instance, you plan on adding lights, speakers, other electronics, that will still take space. Wires, lights and what not do take up space. :lol
A little extra space ain't a bad thing here.
Very true....you may want to include an exhaust fan or two as well for cooling and such. A little extra room is a good thing...but waaaaaaay too much makes the helm useless. My first helm was scaled for John-117 himself...and despite the fact I am six feet tall that freaking thing was HUGE!!! I probably could have fit a pieced-out laptop in there as well as everything else you need for a helm.
Believe it or not, Pep work has been more difficult for me than the metal armour I used to make!
"Rifle" is a vague reference, hence the reason you get back So Many results. "Halo Rifle" doesnt bring up much, if anything.
Hence the reason you didnt post any links in your reply.
