Really like those colors!
How are you planning on installing the visor?

Either epoxy or screws. Going to an armor party this Saturday to hopefully get that done so we will see what my Ruus'alor suggests :)

Personally, I'd go for the Chicago screws. Makes changing the visor or cleaning it easier.  Going to switch to that when I can, my visor is currently held in with Velcro.

I'll definitely keep that in mind

Hey, loving the colour choice. I have noticed that you don't have your RF in any of your pictures. What is the plan with this? If you're planning on running without one I believe you will need to cover the top of the right earcap where the stalk should fit in

I have an RF in progress. Haven't installed it yet so my Alor'ad can help me with magnets and also print me a sturdier RF stalk (the one that came in my kit was pretty flimsy).

Another update. A clan mate helped me out with tailoring my flightsuit and my flak vest! The material for the vest gave her some trouble though, so it sits a little odd. It may be remade later. Also made a new collar plate as the first one wasn't long enough. The spacing is much better, but now I see my chest plates are a tad too wide. Should I go ahead and trim them?

Flak vest



Armor taped on so it may be sitting a lil wonky.

Trimmed the chest plates the other day and currently tweaking those for a better fit. In the mean time, I've been painting a few armor pieces that are done and ready to go.

I was working in the studio on Friday and decided to bring what I had of my kit with me for some in progress photos. Everything is taped on currently so excuse some of the wonkiness. I'll be trimming the ab plate a bit to line up with the chest pieces better.



I also photoshopped my colors on the parts I haven't painted yet just for fun

Where are you seeing baggyness? It was brought in so much it's pretty tight, just wrinkly

Gretat paint job on the blasters, tho you might get dinged on the nerf. There is no moding on it, so it still looks like a nerf.

Yeah I'll probably ditch the nerf. I like the DE-10 much more anyway
