I figured it was time for a thread since I've had the V2.5 legacy configuration for about 8 months now, and just finished my V3 last week. Ill start off with how my kit looked before:

V1- this was in july-ish in 2013



Then I switched to brown as a main color, new chest plates and helmet, late 2013

V2





Come 2014 I switched to legacy chest and some different leg armor:
V2.5



And here is some build Pics:

Cut out of sintra


Starting shaping, velcroed together





Chest shaped, bolted together, collar template cut





Test fit



Thighs shaped



Asymmetrical leg armor painted



Holsters made out of cardboard wrapped in leather for Dh17s






First coat of brown layered on the new chest and thighs, with everything else



Now, on all my previous kits ive had an orange V on my chest, i wanted to stick with that theme so i googled "stylized V" and got this:



I Loved the Brushed look so i figured i'd hand paint it on, here is the results



tweaking the color



Test, with and without pauldron(pauldron was removed from kit)





Weathered and finished product



Custom Dh17 made (top one)



test with duster


Weathered duster to see backplate





Wearing it all at sask expo last year

With Clan mate jinx


With Alor'ad JP (kal runi)


With some guy at con


Another with JP


One of just me


I wore it again the following weekend in Edmonton, only one picture

With a little jango


New shoulders and Sword



Working on visor template









Visor cut and shaped





painted with stripes n triangles





sword finished


Visor bolted on










Extra abb plate added


Kama being sewed



test fit









New weapons, Vibro Axe, Gauntlet sheath n knife, carbine, sniper

Axe




Gauntlet sheath and knife




sniper

finished


Carbine

finished


All weapons laid out, knife has since been repainted and leather wrapped grip



New pauldron-like large shoulder




two small shoulders on other side



Large shoulder painted(sorry for blurry selfie)



test






AND FINALLY, APP STYLE PICS OF V3















Thats it for now. Thoughts? i realize the backplate is askew in the pic, but i hadn't realized till right before i sent in the app yesterday. I'm expecting to get dinged this first time anyways so if anyone has any comments or advice i'm all ears.

Nice work man! I like the visor on the helmet. Also, gotta say the duster went well with your kit.  8)
