It looks good. Double posting is against the forum rules though. You need to wait until someone else posts or wait at least a day before making a new post. Next time just modify the post to add your updates.

Hey, wish I had have spotted this sooner. Posting to follow updates.

However, there are a few things I am seeing issue with (I have a Brigade Canon cleared Super Commando so have built one, albeit not from metal). With attempting a canon build they are scrutinized against the source materials, not the normal CRLs.

  • The shins on all of the SC builds I have seen so far have been symmetrical, what source/patterns are you working from showing asymmetry?
  • Are you planning on opening up the visor slot more? I appreciate the helmet is in its early stages but I don't want to see lots of work going in and it not to be correct.
  • Have you had your chest patterns checked for shape and size by anyone? Whilst the angles in between the chest plate and ab plate are nicely squared off the collar plate is incorrect. It does not have the bottom edge curve. It is a flat cut and matches the entire width of the chest plates once they are mounted. The overall width of the collar/chest plates on the Super Commando is also typically wider than a standard Mando build. Its spacing is based upon your vest side so it looks visually correct to the source.
  • Do you have a better photo of your belt and steel plates? What material is the belt made from? The steel plates you have made are meant to mimic "ammo pouches" so are going to have to be completely blackened and checked for damage to ensure the steel surface does not break through. Also it is important to get the "center square cut" pieces on the outer edges of your hips. The dimension and height of all of these pieces needs to be based on your height to give the correct visual reference. The plates are not placed in the center of the belt either btw.
  • Do you have any further pictures of the Jetpack? It looks like the base layer has a semi-circle top design which is incorrect for the SC. They have a triangular top shaped JP. It also looks like pieces are missing in your photo so having a hard time piecing it together in my head

Please don't take this as disheartening, I am trying to get in and help in the early stages before months of work goes into something that is not to spec.

The asset picture you linked in your first post is also not a great reference to work from. In episode images are best as it did change between asset, promotional materials and the animation itself.

Let me know if you want any photo references etc. as within the UK we have both canon brigade cleared Captains and Grunts. I can link to both our source materials and our build threads.
