Here is another try. I went down to the medium template for size to see how it would fit. I think this fits better. I like the coverage that it gives me. The chest plates are a little crooked but when i line them up right they should line up with the belly plate. My belly button is about an inch below the bottom of the belly plate.


Look better or back to the drawing board ?

thanks again.

Make sure the outside chest plates match up to the bottom corners of the collar and always triple check the spacing. To me it appears the diamond is crooked and stomach isn't equally spaced between the two chest plates.

This looks perfect!
Don't worry about crooked pieces at this point... After all they're just held with some masking tape...

I have my 4X8 sheet of Sintra and i'm ready to rock. i was surprised at how cheap it was. It only cost me 55$ and i have enough to do everything and it looks easy to work with too.

Here is an update. I took a pic of me head to toe with most pieces on. I still need to my make bracers, knees and put the shoulder bells on. I need to adjust the spacing but ill do that later.

Spacing needs work, sizing is decent.  Don't forget the knee plates.

ya . it was tough to get the spacing with the tape but it will be fixed when i finish my vest. As for the knees, i'm working on those, the back plate and shoulders next.  thanks for the input.

Man. It's been a while but i've been going crazy to try and get my kit to a point where i could wear it to Ottawa Comicon. There is stuff I need to fix, add and rework. Wearing it for a few days made some things come to light that I need to take care of. I had the chance to pose and interact with other mercs. it was a great weekend. Now time to get back to work. Here is a pic of my kit and me posing with others.

Looking good. I like the paint scheme as well.

Okay, so, a handful of recommendations...

All in all, the sizing is solid.  Your shoulder bells look a little low; you might want to hike them up an inch or two.  You've got some minor floating with your thighs, but that's not an unusual problem to have.  Adjust the strapping/shaping when you get a chance.

The thing that's really grabbing my attention is your weathering.  It's uniform and splotchy; it looks more like an intentional pattern (cheetah spots?) than weathering.  It needs to be more random, more natural-looking, more concentrated in heavy-wear areas and rubbed edges, not to mention blast/ saber/ vibroblade damage points.  I'm not going to tell you you need to repaint your kit to get approved, but I'm definitely going to recommend it.  If it's any consolation, both of my kits had to take a few paint jobs/ repaints to get it right.  It's part of the learning process.

I am not one of much knowledge like most on here, but the thigh plates almost look a tad big. But like Cin said, might just be floating.

Thanks for the input guys. I need to make a new vest so the shoulder bells will be raised and i need to get another strap on my thigh plates. They are both on my to do lists. As for the weathering i never really noticed what i had done with the weathering until i had the whole kit on. I will be making some new parts as I wasn't happy with the shape or i want to re-design them. Ill be adjusting the paint and weathering at some point. I'm still undecided if i want to make my thigh plates smaller. I like the full coverage it gives me. I was able to learn a tone just by wearing my kit 1.0. The fit, mounting the plates, size and all that. I'm starting on making adjustments and will use all the feed back as much as i can.

Hello everyone, i've been a little busy but talking with fellow Ottawa Mercs and others here in the forums i've started working on updating my kit a bit. So I now have some pouches and I have my vest and belt on the way. Trying to track down a tan flight suit, should have it soon.

I decided to repaint my kit to improve on my weathering. Here is a pic of the new test weathering. I think it's way better than what i had before.



what do you think ?
