First off the kit is coming together really nicely, looking forward to seeing it all finished up!

Other than the things you already have listed out, the only thing I noticed is that your cod plate is sitting a touch off center, looks like it needs to come about an inch or two to over. But really it is just my OCD to have the taper line up with the bottom ab plate.

I really love the shoulders....well all of it.

 (I know nothing about neo crusaders) So purely From a visual point of view I think perhaps a little more drape round the front of the cheeks, sides of face. I'd possibly take the point off the hood to nothing to follow the curve of the head.

This is an EC not a Neo, doesn't need to have the same cowl shape, though i think a bit of bulk in the cowl or maybe some kind of over hood would help make your head look a bit bigger since the mask is so form fitting but if you add an over hood-hood you might risk looking too sith acolyte.

See I know nothing.....If you did go for a over hood, perhaps doing it in green (to tie in with the accents) would be less sith? But then it might swamp the mask? otherwise you could try stayflexing the current shape to bulk it more?

I am planning to add a sort of ponytail type thing at some point, it's just on the backburner as something not likely to be ready before CE.

stayflexing? And the shape of which - mask or cowl?

Stayflex is a stiffener for fabric (its like another layer of fabric you use between the fabric and lining or facing) you can get baste on, or iron on I use iron on (im lazy), its used for collars, facings, cuffs...we use it a lot in on the stand cutting as basically it holds the shape. Was just an idea to give volume without the cowl/draping shape.

I know you don't have to go for the cowl, but I think it might look quite nice...just to balance the proportions of the mask where it comes in at your chin...pony tail sounds like a plan.

App pics are in. Would have preferred a bit more feedback but time is running out :( All the basics are done, still got a few more additions to try and finish before Celebration.

This looks really good! I'm glad you got everything reasonably finished in time for Celebration.

I'm not a big fan of the left arm plates, but they certainly work. They just don't seem to fit the aesthetic of the rest of the kit. But maybe that's just me...

Anyway, lovely job!

Not a fan of them at the moment either, but hopefully they'll look better after the cons passed and I can get the rest of the bits I had planned finished.
