Flight suit is finished!

First test run:



Cod is on the right place and confortable, tighs are on the other way around, but also confortable with the positioning, knees need to come up from the inside on the legs and shins also seem to be ok, they are just a little big(or I am small like Kal  )

Some more steps in building the backpack:













Also building a new RF, this is a 3D modelled one with more detailling and which I will hollow out to get some electronics inside:

My only comments so far is that your shins look a bit too big. You knees are slightly low, but not unreasonably so. You should have a big enough gap between your shins and knees that they do not touch or overlap. Kal's kit is largely the same as Jango's in terms of fit, so he is a good referance.

Also, I'm sure you already know this, but make extra sure to get rid of those print lines. They're a sure fire way to get your app kicked back

Other then that, you're looking great so far vod.

The RKD shins are a little too big, yes, but they canīt be reduced size wise, Iīm hoping that after I raise the knees the gap will be there ;)

Just gotta find the time to check the current fit as I already revised the thighs and knees!

Backpack wise, I will be very careful with the  print lines just like I was with the blaster, here's some more work done(itīs not much as I am going crazy at work getting ready for a tradeshow in Atlanta - U.S.):

So, just like Ahsoka, Kal lives too.

Here's some pics of what I was waiting for(parts were misprinted before):





But as you can see itīs not done in the same scale(or with the desired quality) so I had to get creative:







Fortunately this is going well:







Plus I started the new RF update:

So, I have been working hard but not doing my rounds in the forums.

Let's see how we go about this...

1. I revised the paintjob in the buy'ce as I realised that it should have 3 scratches and not 4 like it used to have:






2. I added the tubing in the gauntlets(and removed the letterings on the tubes):


3. Took measurements of the backpack to help the comunity get a feel for the size.
Take into consideration iīm short at 1,65cm/5'4:

Thanks bro, cause in the not so many available pictures of members I donīt see either neckseal or armored neck plates. In the official pictures and the toy itīs also not present, ditto in the novels...


Anyway, more pictures:
4. Almost finished the backpack as seen on the previous post:




























5. Finished the backplate too:

Hello guys how are you?

So, I got the vest today!!!!



And I started putting the plates on top to get a feel for the placement with sticky velcro(that will get sewn when finished):






So, let's have it! Opinions and advices please!

Yes  ;D :8):

So, as discussed:

- shoulders plates must move up a bit

And IMO:

- space correctly upper plates vs diamond
- collar up a bit

But lest wait and c if an app team member give u some feedback  ;) ;D
