    I meant the bicep, it clearly touch the low-side of the torso when I'm arms-closed (I don't know if I am clear) but I still have mobility and I checked on the ref pictures and the in-game armor and the bicep touch the torso.

    I just checked pics as well and it seems that almost all the pauldrons touch the torso armor somewhere.

    Very nice job there Cantus117. I think a lot of the eva armor builds need to be done freehand. I used some pepakura files and printed out my parts, then built them out of paper to see how they fit. Then I enlarged or shrank them to fit me better and flattened them out to make cardboard patterns. There was a lot of alterations to get the pattern pieces right. I think it took me a little over a year to get my armor built. But I didn't work on it full time and certainly not every day. Heck I think I went a couple of weeks in between making parts.
    I sure looks like your going to have one very nice build once you are done.
    Awesomeness!!

    In regards to the biceps and the chest, it is normal for them to be touching, they normally sit around the same height. In game it is quite common for the bicep to be almost clipping through the chest under the arms halo-5-guardians-master-chief.jpg

    Thank you for your comments all ! :)
    Dirtdives: Yeah it's almost done but I still have to do again the helmet with the right size, the back plate and the hands but I think those two are gonna be fast to build.... and the weapon (MA5D I guess, it don't looks too hard for a beginner).
    Rorywatts: I've been looking at some refs but you confirm what I was thinking, thank you !

    Oh and here are the boots and the knees (which I'm gonna build it again but better if I have time).

    This is my 2nd try on the helmet; i'm almost done. It just needs craft foam and padding. I'm wondering if it's normal that I almost can't move my head without touching the torso, Fred got a bulky armor...

    Thanks for your comments :) Do you think it's possible to finish the paint on the suit in 1 week "non stop" ?

    Truly it matters on the level of quality you want in the paint. More of a really detailed painting is going to take T I M E, but a simple armor color and weathering will be able to be done in a week easy.
