Here's the last few days of progress:

DE-10 assembled and base layer applied. Also my new crossdraw holster for it:


Deflated Mando:


Sanding and polishing all metal lower armor to match. Left is before, right is after:


10/26/21 edit: more progress!

First full kit up with the new post imperial plates. Still a lot to tweak, including flight suit bagging, thigh plates slipping (and being upside down  :laugh:), shnees needing to lower, etc. Ignore the painters tape on the gauntlets, I was 80% kitted up and couldn't find my locking pins  :laugh:. They have since been found.






DE-10 is fully finished:


Here's my first potential fix for the thigh plates:


Nov 5th update:
After working on my armor some more, I decided it still looked too much like plastic for my personal preference, so I hit everything with a few clear coats and then applied graphite powder. I'm incredibly happy with the results!



Flight suit is currently at the tailors, and a new cummerbund and leather apron are expected to arrive today. More pictures will be posted of my full kit up once everything has arrived!

Nov 5 test fit update!

Another test fit with all of the new parts! Still have several things to fix: chest plates need slight adjustment so they sit correctly, thighs need to be adjusted up, belt needs to stop slipping down, velcro on the back needs to be adjusted so you can't see it over the backplate.

Looking for anything else to add to my fix list!

More progress on my fix list!

  • Fixed the thighs and trimmed them up so they don't hit the shnees.
  • Applied some weathering to the plates.
  • Repositioned the shoulders for better fit and presentation.
  • Tightened up the bandolier and swapped it so it's right side up.
 






Remaining fix list:
  • Weather cummerbund and leather apron
  • Fix drooping belt
  • Better match lower plate weathering with upper plates

If anyone sees anything else, please let me know!

Also, here is a link to my first WIP that contains all of my previous work:

Got back to it this week and made some more progress!






Thighs are still riding too low, but I have a fix for that I'll be implementing shortly. Bandolier ended up wrapping around be too much in front due to the placement on the new belt, so I'll be fixing that as well.  Completed additional weathering to tie everything together.

Last thing is just standing up straighter so I don't look like I'm leaning  :laugh:.

Anything else catch anyone's eye, please let me know!

Flightsuit bottoms look a bit baggy in the seat as well as upper thigh areas. 
You can use the strapping to your advantage a bit in the knee/thigh area by tucking some(not a ton) of the fabric at the knee on the inside knee just a bit to make the trouser area cleaner and not as baggy. Some additional tailoring in addition to the above advice can get you pretty far.
When I was in bootcamp we used to use our parade belts to tuck our blouses at the back and sides and make a pleat that the belt held in place. Made our uniforms look a lot nicer.
