This has been a long time in the works but with this lovely Kung Flu pandemic going around I have finally been able to start making tremendous progress on my kit.

Jumping directly into things I have chosen not to go with traditional plates, nothing against them I just wanted to branch out.
Overall I have confidence the spacing may need some adjustments but everything else should be good.

Here it is before collar armor mods.





This is after adding additional collar armor.


After some suggestions to raise the flak vest higher.

Continuing with updates !!

After speaking with a local Ruus'alor, and a short video conference with some plate adjustments, I was given the green light to begin cutting out my armor!
  :porg2:

However before diving further into that allow me to show you the direction of this kit. Please excuse the less than stellar example.



Now going into the actual construction and cutting of the Sintra.

With my overall kit having less armor I chose to go with 6mm sintra to give it that sturdy feeling. Below are a few of the images I remembered to take during the process.


Kind of a bad picture but I had already cut out the chest armor here.


Here was an interesting few hours. Originally my diamond had a raised and somewhat intricate section raised upon it. Being a slight perfectionist I drew out a rather complex design and erased a few lines here and there until finally arriving at the desired shape as seen below. This entire process took roughly 8 hours but I was also watching Disney+ while working so that may have something to do with it.


Overall I couldn't be happier with what will turn out to be my first kit. All thats left now is to clean up the edges, sand, more sanding, forming, painting, attaching... okay so there may be a lot left to do.  ;D

I dig your design. I'm thinking of something similar, so it's nice to know I'm not too "out there".  ;D

I appreciate that, word of advice though, keep your Ruusalor involved prevents a lot of hardships from happening later on down the road. 🙂
