I'm realizing there are allot of differences wit this build, just small and detailed.
It's definitely keeping me on my toes  :P

Little more today, will need opinions of others for this if you'd be so kind

Cloak = Which looks better?
I've gone through allot of dyes to get to these choices, I'm not sure I can find the exact one unless someone knows the exact ones.

Back plate: Does this look okay for the raised sections where the harness comes out ?

*****************IMAGES REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN PHOTOBUCKET LINKS*****************

Minor addition, Left gauntlet with leveled sections beside main missile for the secondary missiles to be mounted.
Greeblies (buttons , keypad and dental floss part still to add)

Its hard to tell what the true cape color is supposed to be based on the comic art, but I'd go with that first lighter colored one. Seems closer to the artwork, and I just like the color better lol.

i think the cape colours differ slightly from panel to panel in the comic so both work. personally i prefer the darker one... think it would be more in keeping with the darker flight suit. but still you're far more savvy at this than me. can't wait to see what you decide.

Thanks for the feedback guys, but I'm thinking the lighting has distorted the colours as its looking different to in real life, I'll keep working on it :P

Last little bit for the day, knees with darts

That would be quite cool to put a face to forum name :-)

Had a partial kit up to see if gauntlets were looking right as they were and only needed padding, I'm personally not seeing a problem as they are reasonably close already, but if anyone feels otherwise and willing to show me what I need to get them better I'm totally up for that as I want this kit looking as best as I can :P

Back plate to jet pack curve is pretty good I feel too
