She has a collar, I think? In the last few pics it's hard to see because of the way it seems to sit at an angle and the shoulder tabs of it appear to have been painted black so it blends with the vest.

Ah.  I must not have scrolled down far enough the first time through, or my browser was acting up.  The last picture I saw was below the "Toys on Parade" pictures, the bathroom selfie with no collar. I can see it now though.

So never mind about my no collar comments above.  My apologies.  I'd like to see the collar actually on you, though.  hehe

Again, great work, vod.

One thing I noted, though, is that you'll need to have a collar plate in order to become an Official Member.

Take a closer look - there is a full collar in there :P Angle of the pic and the colour is blending it into the vest really well, lol.

All looking good to me - may need a little trim on the bottom of the chest plates to bring the ab up, the spacing on the early pictures between chest/ab and girth is looking a little tight - but you look to have done a ton of work since then so I'll wait till you've done a full kit up to double check that.

Thank you, all!
Here's a pic from the pre-approval with the collar, but the pics from the parade did not have a collar.

I knew there wasn't a collar.  In the parade pics, sure.   :laugh:

Your kit is looking very, very nice.  The only thing I see that the App Team will be concerned with is that it appears that your shin plates are being held on with black straps.  Which, on a white flight suit, won't work.  Beyond that, your kit looks great!

Thank you, Havelock! I will create some slip covers for those elastic straps.

Damn that is a lot of progress :) You should make yourself a WIP in the Armor construction board and post some of this up :) (People don't tend to go to outside link for picture galleries, more responses will be from embedding the pictures. Here is the guide for how)

As Havelock has pointed out a collar will be required for approval. It does seem from the very bottom photos this may have now been constructed though?

Your best bet is to take some Application style photos (front, back and both sides) with you in kit and speak to your clans Ruus'alor about placing them in "Pre-App". This is where you will get the best feedback on any final changes required before being ready to submit for Official approval.

I look forward to seeing you getting your stripes being so close already

Just a little long on the torso, matter of an inch or so, just to lift the ab out from being stuck under the belts. Trousers may need a little tailoring. Otherwise, very, very nice, beautiful shaping on the torso plating.

Thank you for the feedback!  Do you mean the girth belt is too long?  It is the same color as my vest, so that may be what you are referring to.  I can trim the girth belt, or wear it higher under the vest.

For my pants, I am prior military, so I can refrain from blousing them at the top of my boots.  Or it could be the position I am standing?

Thank you again for your help!

I believe Kris is referring to the Ab plate itself. It is normally sized such that it doesn't go under the soft parts. So it may just need the bottom edge trimming to bring it up.

In regards to the trousers I believe it's the bagginess around the knee plates/top of the boots
