Digging it, especially like your carbon scoring
Thanks vod.
Sorry for the long silence. I'm terribile at keeping a wip thread. But long story made short, this is where I'm at.


Still missing one knee (or shnee), the cod plate and 1 and a half gauntlet. Something I need to change/improve? Sorry for the bad picture.

Little update on the back plates


Will need to weather more the front plates I guess.

Guess I'm almost there?



Things to do:
  • cod plate
  • leg armor
  • right gauntlet
  • paint the flares
  • organize better all the waist items
  • soft parts weathering

Any big no go?

Looking pretty good!  :like: It seems like you have most everything covered in your To-do list.

Do your boots have laces? I tried to zoom in, but my work laptop doesn't have the best resolution so I could not tell.

The only other thing that I noticed is that the right (your right) edge of the collar plate seems to be floating. That may just be due to the bandolier. However, your armor will have to fit properly with the bandolier on. So it may be a matter of some increased shaping and/or increased attachment under that side.

Thanks Vod. Yeah, sorry for the bad quality picture  :laugh:
Boots don't have laces, those lines are a detail on the boots.


About the collar, I guess that it's becouse of the raised arm for the photo, but as you sai I can easily reshape or add attachment.

Your list sure seems to cover everything I'm not seeing here. You're in real good shape!

Just a couple notes:

The loose ends of your armor vest straps: can you tuck those in? They look a little sloppy.

If you could lower your shin, I think it would look better. Also may get flagged by the app team. My first kit had shins and they told me that they were too high; which is odd, because I didn't think they were sitting high at all. And your shin definitely seems high to me.

And what's that in your hand? If it isn't a part of the kit, you should leave it out for your app pics.

I'm just being nit-picky, because I think you should be easily approved! Just needs a couple things to tidy up. But otherwise you look awesome! Your kit looks wicked cool! Way to go, dude! Nearly there now!!!!  :porg2:

Thanks vod! Really appreciate your feedback. I'd like to reach the club's level, so every critique and suggestion is really really appreciated! :like:
I can easily move the shin lower and will put a snap to fix the loose vest straps.

The thing in my hand is my phone  :laugh: I used it to control the camera, since I was home alone  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: will find another solution for app pics  :laugh:

Looking great! Also "pee app"  :laugh:
Yeah, auto correct off  :laugh:
