Okay... bit of a delay in getting my ComMando, and it has me thinking, what should I do for the visor?  I'm debating a couple of variants, but was also thinking of just going with the standard "T".  Also looking into a mirrored tinted, maybe a green.

As long as the velcro is completely concealed by the flap it's fine... if you want some reference take a look at the mow studios replica boba fett vest as it uses this very method of closure. ;)

I don't have a T-Visor branded visor, just a regular green welding sheet I cut a visor out of. You may be able to gently heat the visor with a heat gun and shape it that way. Have you contacted them to see if they have any ideas?

Cheers Tek Sa'an,
I have sent off a message to the company asking for their advice, I hadn't thought of that so thanks.
 I saw your post about the welding shield, but because of the glue I used to keep the halves together the helmet was a bit flimsy, and  I was wanting to use a stronger visor to compensate for that.

After I get this visor in place all that I should need to do is a neck seal and then it will be done.

Soft Parts / Question: Vest closure
« Last post by FabledFalcon412 on Today at 07:59 PM »
Alright, I decided to make my own vest. My first sewing endeavor, thankfully my wife has sewn before.

My question on the vest is for the closure. I was thinking of doing an overlapping flap on the side (one or both not sure yet) of the vest that closed with Velcro my thinking is that way I can get it pretty snug without having to be super exact on the measurements and it is less sewing as well.

Is this a permissible way of doing a vest? My question is that it would leave an open flap/seam of sorts where the flap ends toward the back of the vest is that ok or do I need to think of something else?

The width of your collar and chest plates looks pretty good.  The collar needs to be formed a bit more, but the sizing looks good.  Your shoulders seem fine, too.  Looks good, vod.

Thanks Jennari! I'm pretty pleased with it myself!

Thanks Kol, though those aren't decals they were painted on freehand with a pinstriping brush  ;)

Looking good so far! The only thing really sticking out to me is that the ab plate is a bit wide and will need to be trimmed. Other than that, can't wait to see more!
