Some updates!

Ordered my holsters off Etsy--they are beautiful dark brown leather. I was originally going to try and make them myself, but now that I have the finished product, I'm super pleased with them and glad I didn't try doing it myself.

Got a pair of Imperial code cylinders that I'll dirty up for trophies, as well as a bone/fang type necklace on cord.

Ordered helmet fans and padding for the interior.

Started working on my flak vest. I have a rough version of it--it came out better than I expected, so I'm hopeful that I can use it and not have to remake it. I still have to put in the zipper (and the velcro flap to cover it) and do some darts for fitting around the bust, but I have to wait on that until I have an extra set of hands to help.

I'm getting together with some other friends who are working on kits (one is OM) in a few weeks, and we're all going to work together to get plates done, and anything else we can accomplish!

amazing progress last week. Plates look great, especially the back plate.

Painting and weathering is done!! It's really starting to feel like a kit now! I have to work on mounting, and install my visor, and then it's just a few more things left to wrap up.  :porg2:

Looking great! I'm not OM but the only thing that looks like it might draw attention are the white dots- in the photo they look a little off-kilter/messy. Might just be the way the weathering looks, but I'd check them with a critical eye and see if they need to be made more uniform in appearance.
