Holy cow!  Glad to see you back at it man!  Your progress looks great.  Congrats on the weigh loss as well, hopefully it doesn't mess up the fit too bad.

Thanks for the compliments! I got just enough progress done that I was able to wear it for free comic book day , though I had to borrow a blaster from my TK/Tusken buddy! I still have a list of things to finish(boot armor, strapping fixes, weathering and paint, utility belt, greeblies, etc....) Here's a few pics. What do you think?

Do your ab plates slide up beneath your chest plates?  If so I would be interested to know your strapping technique.

Thank you kindly! It's slow progress, but progress none the less!

Do your ab plates slide up beneath your chest plates?  If so I would be interested to know your strapping technique.

Yes they do! They all overlap each other. Here's a few pics that might help. I used a 4" wide strap down the middle to keep the lames spaced out right. The 3/4" white straps hold the lames in and up so that they stay lined up in a profile view.

Those pictures were most helpful, but what I was looking to do was having the plates slide beneath each other completely allowing me to bend over.  Yours seem screwed into place, with the middle screw on the wide strap above each plate so it can't sink beneath the one above it.  Either way though, it's a fantastic build you've done, and I look forward to seeing the progress!
