Very nice take on a jet pack/jump pack.  But, I think you need to add a bit more to it to hide the sports gear.  That still shows through way too much...  which is a CRL issue.  It has potential though.  You could add some sintra (or other plastic) to it as a back plate and just cover up the main backplate area and maybe a few more greebs.  Hope that helps.    ;D

He carried a BFG and wore heavy armor vest
He liked to make credits, they were the best!
Blasting and hunting were all in good fun,
Especially when the prey did try to run!
Then one day the hutt called him to do a job,
Get a nasty little genosian thief named Bob!
Found and bound fast as a blink that little bug,
He got kriffed on the creds that big fat slug!
So I shot him.  With a proton torpedo." --Bazii

Very nice. I do think I'd cover up the mesh area's on the lower back and the two most outer mesh area on the upper back with greebies though. Do your homework faster and get back to working on this  :P

Have a good one,
Hagen

Wow this is pretty dang cool. The main thing that gets my attention is the stitching to the point I cringe because IMHO no matter how much time you spend, it would still look like a rush job. It's the small attetion to detail that makes a kit great. Keep up the good work

All around the plastic it connects the armor to the padding underneath

I had to do something similar with some shoulder pads I made.  One of the easiest things (and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong) is just uses some bondo to fill in the gap where the stitching is.  A little sanding, back to painting and you are golden!

I love the direction of this as I have been thinking of a jump pack / sleek pack look. This is a nice looking one, but I have to agree, fill in the stitching line with some bondo or something and that will help, along with taking care of some of the mesh parts. Think about what each part would do if it were real...what are those vents supposed to be doing?


The overall look is very cool and gives me ideas.

Keep it up.
