Nice start so far, and I hoped you had a good first outing! Couple things I'm noticing in the photos:
I'd recommend modifying the bicep part on your left arm to better hide the foam padding on the inside.
Looks like the shin armor might need to come up a little, the boot armor will need to be adjusted to sit on the boot better (I realize that might have been because of the con as well).
If you can, after you make your post-con adjustments, share some kit photos! We'd be able to help you more from there. Good work so far!

all grommets reinstalled on the flight suit


pouches tighten up, and plates re attached with secured bolts


doesn't quite hang right on the hanger but a close up of my vest



Knees are primed and after a touch of sanding and re primer, will be ready for first coat of silver


also guess you could call them dart launchers are taking shape.

Nice to see more progress being made vod! I would strongly recommend removing the stone from the chest diamond though. I would recommend finding a way, if possible, to have it be more flush and integrated with the diamond itself.

I had the time and the paracord. So I made my Cabuur Akaata rope today. Added some bear claw beads for embellishments.



Knee plates officially replaced. Now I just need to let the clear coat dry and glue bolts and accessories on

So while waiting for jb weld to cure on some of my repairs I was productive on my new idea on how to see with my bucket off. I need to glue the lense in and glue down the extra fabric and put some foam down to make it comfortable and spacing. And secure the elastic into loops.
