Plastic weld 2 part epoxy and CA glue (zap-a-gap) have both worked well for me.  Not together - but at different occasions.  I used plastic weld to attach my magnets and CA for sintra to sintra - stuff ain't going nowhere!

Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely keep those in mind. I use magnets for closing my gauntlets, and I have those glued on and surrounded by epoxy to make sure they stay in place, I figured I'd do something similar for putting the magnets on my plates.

Magnets are definitely the way to go, vod. Easy, simple to re-position and do no damage to the vest. I've been meaning to take photos of my own magnet attachments, but I've been bogged down with exams lately D: How were the plates attached at Megacon?

The day started with them attached purely by velcro, though that didn't last long. By the end of the day they were primarily being held on by super glue and dreams.  :P

Quick update: Got my thruster plate and lower back plate weathered up and blackwashed last night:

Thanks vod! I was actually really concerned that I was going to mess it up before I started, but I got the hang of it as I played with it.

Well I'm happy for you that it worked nicely on the first try.  I'd say, even if you had to repaint a few times to get it right, ultimately it would be worth it to have that satisfaction of getting it right.  I often discover new ways and techniques while experimenting and I think that's most of the fun :)

once again, two thumbs way up!

While I do love a good learning experience, I'm very happy that I didn't have to do any major repainting!

This.  Is awesome.

I really like seeing it go from an idea, to exactly what it is supposed to be.

Thanks so much!

There was certainly a large transition of design from sketch to prototype to finished product, but it worked out great in the end!

I may have to use this idea for my daughter's kit.  it'd be much easier for a 5 year old to wear than a big jet pack.

Be my guest, my only request is that you link the build thread back to me so I can take a look at it!  ;D
