For weathering/ chipping purposes. what would be the recommended undercoat colour? Should I stay in the "sandy/fall" colour range or should I have a darker contrast colour?

looking at these right now...




any input?

How does one go about making the chest plates? Short of actually making my flak that is the only other hold up right now on my build.

On the bright side, I got gloves.  Looking at making them fingerless, just have to figure out where to cut them. Also debating them to dye them more brownish in color to offset armour color/match spats I have to make.

Long Delay, found material to start working on a Girth belt. Its about 4" in width. Need to figure out what color to dye it so it doesn't blend in with kit or clash to bad. Maybe a red or burgundy ?

Found where I hid my sintra,  nice day outside so decided to crack down on what I can work on until my flak comes in...

Finished belt, need to work on fastening it though, looking at having it close in the back so it should be something easy for me to do by myself. Debating between parachute clips or leather extension and Velco.



Also working with forming the hand plates



not liking how either style is turning out so far. Might end up ditching the idea and come back to it another time.

Gotta say I love the belt you have. I'm currently waffling on what I'm going to do with mine. If I interpreted the rules correctly though, "two waist items" means two separate items. I don't think two belts made into one item counts.

Just a hint, there is a soft parts specific section where you may have better luck getting answers that aren't armor related.

Great job so far, you have some good momentum going!

I do have two separate waist items. I have a girth belt that is going under this belt. I accidentally deleted the images off of imgur and haven't gone back to reload the pictures as I am currently transitioning out of the military and been busy. But thank you. The second belt is going to be holding my holsters once my blasters come in and can mold the leather.
