Good progress! Vest needs some tailoring around the arm holes, back plate needs some more shaping to fix the gaps between it and your vest.  May need to remove some material to make that happen.  One piee backs are a challenge, good luck vod!

You and I are on the same page.  Every time I examine the pics im seeing similar issues and already plan on tackling them!!!  But luckily easy fixes.  The back piece isnt painted specifically because I was certain it could use more shaping and yeah those arm holes are wierd :D  Thanks!

Do I have to have the flak vest for the shoulder bells or can the shoulder armor mount directly to the flight suit?

You don't have to have the shoulder tabs. The flight suit may let them sag and move around too much though.

^^^ This.

If you affix them to the vest, they're more likely to stay in place in relation to the chest armor.

I didnt like the vest I made and it was a pain to alter the gap in the shoulder area.  Soo I stole my wifes sewing machine and went to work.  Still doing some tweaking but I was wondering if this was appropriate for connecting the sides before I start considering other methods.   It is velcro and hopefully the pic shows enough detail.  Im assuming that the answer is no due to the fact that it looks too close to a possible armor attachment location.  Worst case Ill trim the velcro away from the area between the side and the back plate... Or maybe throw a cape on.  Any who, looking for that great advice as usual.  Thanks

As long as you don't end up with any exposed velcro when the kit is finished, it's fine. Those are engineering challenges you'll have to solve as you build though :)

OK!  I did some alterations during my lunch and here we go!  Im looking for the boba fett style vest that sits above the belts.  Im still shaping the back piece so thats why its not show as of now.  I tried canvas on this vest with the sides as Velcro so I can place it on without help.  If this gets green lit im going to weather it and finally move on to finishing the back piece.  Thanks!

After printing a set of hers myself (couldn't pass up the deal on her etsy page  ;D ), I'm considering ordering a set direct from her. 

Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing you get your killstripes! :like:

Update here.  I have been way to busy.  I wanted to get a pic from the waist up with pretty much everything attached other than the back plate and possible cape.

Looks really good, so far!  :like:  Spacing between the collar and chest might be a bit close, but I would wait for an App Team member to chime in on that.

But, looks REALLY good!
