Alright, so I'm upgrading my kit completely yet again.

Here is what I had for my first kit:


Here's Ver. 2.0:


And now we have Ver. 3.0:


The colors are going to be Krylon spray paint. Tan = Krylon Fusion Satin Khaki. Green = Krylon Satin Italian Olive. With my battle damage I plan on having it silver of course but it's gonna be outlined in black also.

Here is an example of the colors on my M-DSB Assassin:

Those are still interesting colors.  Looking forward to seeing what it looks like for real. 
Going with your assassin or merc on this one?

I'll probably have both of them done up so I can choose which one I want during the events.

So in the last two nights I've sanded down my bucket and my thigh plates. As per the above picture my right thigh will have a holster built on it for a blaster pistol. I was thinking that it's probably gonna make my right side look heavy so I've decided to have a drop leg pouch on my left side. Here are the 3 I've found at work:

1:

2:

3:

I'm heavily leaning toward #1. What do you all think? Of course it will be reworked to look more star-wars-ish.

What if I use a pouch that doesn't have a M.O.L.L.E. system on the front of it? I planned on putting a armor plate on the top of it to cover up the system though, not just leave it out in the open.

How far does it stick off your leg? It looks rather large.

Alright, here is the pic of me facing the camera. The pouch is only about 4" wide.



I'm gonna have to form it more to my leg but you get the picture.

Yeah, that doesn't look bad. I was thinking that it might stick off your leg much more than that.

I'm not wholly against tac gear, like some folk on here, but my suggestion to people that want to use them is to do something to mando 'em up a bit. Add armor plates to the surfaces; if possible replace all buckles and fasteners with the quick-release, parachute buckle type, as they're shown all over SW; have trophies (teeth, claws, small braids, etcetera) hanging all over them. Stuff like that, so it doesn't look like you just sort of walked into a Mil surplus store and tacked it onto the kit.

That's exactly what I planned on doing down to a "t". I planned on putting armor on top of it, a few weapons (knives) on it, making the straps/buckles look more SW, and add a trophy or two to it. Are you picking my brain Slade??? >.< NOOOOO!!!!!

I also plan on doing light sprays of the tan spray paint on it too since it's a darker tan then the rest of my kit. I'm hoping it'll tie in together better.

Alright. Update 1.

I've gotten my helmet sanded down.







I also decided to cut off the ear cap I had on the right side, so the helmet is now symmetrical. Unfortunately with this helmet, I forgot that the ear cap was a little indented out. So I cleaned it up, and cut out a little piece of sintra. I hot glued it in and here is how it turned out. I'm gonna bondo it, and smooth it over.



While I was sanding down it, I had a little "accident". The white there is a chip, I've decided instead of filling it in, it will be a blaster shot. Hopefully it turns out the way I'm seeing it in my head. The white will be silver, light grey will be a mix of silver and black, the grey will be black, and then the rest will be tan.
