Why thank you kind sir. My only concern that I had was the bottom tang on the abs. It is a bit bigger than it should be, but the point reaches my belly button. If I had added the fourth plate it would have extended way past it... I am happy with it either way.

Yeah, it was meant to be customizable that way (I drew it for a tall fellow)...most folks only use the 3 lames.  :)

It's actually surprising how fast this has gone. Granted I still have to form the knees, get some gaunts, make a cod/kama, soft parts and fix my stalker, but yea moving along.

I think I remember you saying that on another guys post... I'll have to try.i should ask though, the sizing in your opinion, should I add the 4th plate at the bottom?

Make sure you leave room for a girth or ammo belt. :)

Well i have gotten my back plates cut out and i grinded the edges down a bit. maybe a little rough, but after running my fingers down the edges, i am satisfied that i wont get cut or damage my vest.

also had to modify my stalker to fix damages done while stripping the paint and an accidental dropping.......

sooooo i have a bit of a dilemma. i might have gotten a little over zealous while assemmbling my back plates...... see i was using steel i had gotten out of a refridgerator.....and i got this because i wasnt thinking.



now, i have tried to feather it in to have it be smooth.....



not a big deal to me, but i wanted to gather some opinions as to if it is all right the way it is, or if there is a way to fix this without having to start all over.

If you can live with it, I wouldn't sweat it....you'd have to either take a grinding disc to it, or use a thin skim of Bondo or 'glass over it.

I think it adds character, and if you are going to use a cape or backpack/jetpack, it's not going to show that much, anyway.
