my first try making the armor i don't know if I have to fix something so for now I attached the parts with Velcro
so if there's something to change I can replace them and I Left the right chest plate empty so if it were approved for I will draw in it  the clan logo

Nothing wrong with Velcro, its how all my plates are attached on my kits.

Is it possible to get a picture that is more square on to the front of you? Your collar and diamond gaps look good but may be closing up around the Ab plate. Just want to make sure if its the angle the photo is taken :)
