Digging this. Very cool parts list, the belt and coldcast jetpack, plus the 'chuck rifle, are gorgeous. Great job on the paintwork on the helmet, as well. very good job of translating the comic look over.

Today I received my first of two flak vests, this one being from Ladyghost. I can't stress how high quality and professional this is, down to the piping and the liner. It's beyond exceptional.

As predicted though, my weight loss shows. The measurements I gave initially for this were much larger, and now, while it "fits" me, it's doesn't have that "snug" look I need. Aside from having the mid-section reduced, the shoulders will need to be cut down as they are covering most of my shoulders, which need to be exposed.

Forgive it's rough appearance so far, but I dressed myself up to this point, so I know for future reference I need someone there to help when I put my belt on and such. The rear is not pulled down tight and it appears un-even and un-centered with the JP harness straps. I'm going to also have to play around with the harness. It's adjustable fortunately but I'll have to make it such that it works well with the vest as to not cause distortions.

So, looking at this, it tells me I need to hold off for awhile before I can really move forward on making the necessary adjustments if I don't want to keep spending money. The belt I can finish up, but I'll have to add more velcro to it as parts of it need to be more stable and overall tightened up, again, due to weight loss.

All in all, I'd rather have this current dillema where I can cut VS being too fat and having to start completely over!

And I didn't have padding in the helmet, so yea, looks weird...

The jetpack is IN! AND IT IS GORGEOUS!!! Pictures absolutely DO NOT do it justice....it has a mirrored shine to it and if you didn't know any better, you'd honestly believe this was actually machined metal!!






It is now starting to take shape...



Stay tuned.....

Fierfek, that thing's gorgeous!  Where'd you get it?  Is it a cold-cast piece?

In the OP, he says it's a cold cast from NME. Dunno if that changed or whatever.

Ah, must've missed that.  I only look at the pitchers, anyhoo. :D

It's a gorgeous piece, certainly.

How much did NME charge for a polishing of it? Was it included?

Maybe he just picked up a new jetpack?  :P  :laugh:

I would hate to see it deshined! It's so pretty.
