I just keep coming back and looking at this WIP!  A few questions, since I'm hoping to start a similar build in the near future.

How much does the jetpack weigh and how is it attached to the backplate?  And, secondly, how do you you keep the weight from shifting backwards and causing your chest piece to ride up (thus choking you)? Does attaching it directly to the belt in the front help that much?

The jetpack weights about 4,5 pounds, so it's pretty light. There's a harness underneath the torso armour, which connects to the grey and blue soft section, which in turn connects to the belt. There are also two additional straps which attach the jetpack to the rear of the belt, which can be used to pull it tight. It all stays pretty well in place.

Anyhoo, picture time!

Finished the gaunts some time ago as well, so might as well show them off.



One side has a piano hinge, the other side is magnetized. I just put enough in there till it wouldn't open up after shaking it around a bit.



And painted

Well.....this is just about the coolest thing I've ever seen.  Simply stellar work sir.  I foresee this being a benchmark WIP for Late Crusader builds for many years.   :8):

As I've seen this in RL already, It looks stunning. :o
The level of skills that crawled out and "energized" this build is beyond compare.
Love to seeing you wear it in the upcoming cons.
