This is PART 3 of a 5 part series on a full ODST Armor you can wear.
The project is so large that I decided to break it down into five(5) Instructables:
To help unify all the instructables I also published a Table Of Contents (TOC) instructable for the Halo ODST Armor Build.
The Arm armor consist of two parts, the piece covering the shoulder and upper arm and the piece covering the forearm (aka, the gauntlet).
I will be deviating from the WETA model and will be using the arm models from the video game.

Step 1: Software and Model
the software is here: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/
There are many variants of the ODST armor. Which one you build depends on your taste.
Start with the files here:
For the upper arms I am deviating away from the Weta model and using the arm armor from the video game. I am doing this because I like the look better and it covers more of the shoulder. Build will be trickier as the part is hinged.
