Pics update:
I have since adjusted my right thigh plate another 1/2 inch lower after these pics.  I have also better secured my shoulder ammo belt which has been pulling my right chest plate up and back .  I couldn't figure it out as I knew I had my plate spaced right.  Due to a bad back I tend to hole my right shoulder high which doesn't help either.

I'm in total awe at the sheer level of detail from top to bottom. Honestly, the only critiques I can find at all is that the spacing from chest to collar plates seems a bit tight and the right shoulder sits a touch higher than the left, but I think that's just a matter of the posture issue. Fortunately, the App Team is very understanding of such medical problems and I can't imagine your application being denied. I could go on for a while about every little detail I like, but I'll just put in that I like how you have quite a lot going on but managed to keep it from looking too busy. It very much gives the vibe of a hunter that is prepared to stay in the field for extended periods of time but also ready to stay moving. Very well done.

Thank you !  It wouldn't be for all the great comments thus far in my WIP.
Here are a few more close ups of my kit for consideration:
Holster/thigh attachment failed (repaired) during photo shoot.  Good to walk around in the house for a bit to realize you didn't thread lock all your bolts.


Didnt have gauntlet displays on this go around.  Also adjusted my right thigh holster up and away a bit from my right knee armor.

I had come to realize the 3d printed clip on the underside of my carbine for-end just wasn't  as big as the cylinders I purchased and used on my kit for mini grenades.  So I cut it out and mounted one of my extras up inside, letting it protrude.  Drilled a whole through the face of the sling buckle to match the one on my thigh rig.  re blued the edges.  I think it ties the carbine to the kit better.



Gauntlet bottoms off to re sand and repaint ...getting rid of ghost print lines that most probably wouldn't have caught but they really did bug me.  You can see them really well on the right gauntlet


Added the outer bell of a small burned out motor to the front of my macros.  I wanted to be different and have a upgraded custom feel to what others may have on there kit.
 

QUESTION TO ALL:
I'm going back and forth with the idea of painting my knees white or at least adding white faces to the front.  I think the green is looking to dark in the photos and it would connect the look of the legs better.  I'm open to opinions here!!!

That’s some great work right there! Personally, I’d stick with the green knees or it might look a bit trooper-ish. Perhaps add some white detail for the continuity you’re seeking?

Looks good, vod!
And as a fellow Merc with a bad back, I totally get the posture problems.  I'm actually seeing a chiropractor to try to fix it.

As I wait on my app I have finished the repaint of my gauntlet bottoms.


I didn't like the downward angles on the bottom edges of my shin guards so I squared them off.


My gauntlet buttons needed some detail so I added some color and weathered.


My goal is to work toward Brigade once OM.  (Heavy Assault, Demolitions or droid hunter)  I have spent a few nights printing some accessories including modified Mandalorian knife (shortened and blade angled down), magnetic droid restraining bolt, hydrospanner and a few fragmentation grenades to replace the hunk of metal I've had as a grenade on my left side.


I wanted to add one more tool to satisfy some requirements so I searched through my box of parts and roughed in a fusion cutter.  I may mount this and the hydrospanner onto the sides of my leather utility pack on my back.  Looking to have these parts finish painted tomorrow.
