Lookin' pretty spiffy, vod.  The flight suit arms and legs look kind of baggy, you'll want to take those in some.  You're definitely off to a great start, though.

Nice to see some paint on your bucket.   And those boots should work just fine.

Pretty slick build,  so far, vod!
Really like the lighter colored plates, and that helmet is sweet.

I really Like this design, maybe the cape should put more detail of fights, such as holes or burns..
Anyway you armor looks terrific

Nice to see you making progress, vod.  One concern, though; it appears that your pants and long-sleeved shirt are made of different materials.  Do you have a black short sleeve shirt made of the same material as your pants to wear over the long sleeves and under your flak vest?

I think it's the lighting and they way the boots and karma cover the pants because they are exactly the same colour and material
