Ruug’la, I love the build and all the attention to detail. Amazing job! I am also glad to see that the microbino model is still being used. I am thinking about updating the model and possibly making a monocular similar to the bino’s. Keep up the great work and I look forward o seeing your kit in Brigades.

Looks great! The loin cloth is a bit wide as is. Some suggestions I would recommend would be to either narrow the width to where it's about as wide as your loin trauma plates or you could narrow and shape the loin to follow the shape of said trauma plates.

This next one isn't a CRL violation, more a suggestion. I would recommend shortening the loin to come above your knees as well. Best of luck with the rest of your build!  :mcq1:

95% of this kit is out of this world. My one piece I would wish to see improved is the loincloth/armored cod. I think it looks odd that the plates do not extend the length of the fabric or that the fabric isn't as narrow as the plates. (the latter makes more sense to me). The detail on the plates is wonderful.  :cookie: Also that material for the cape i've seen used only once before and it looks great in this application too.

Really appreciate all the little details you've put into this kit. I have to agree with Bryn though, there's something about the loin cloth and that may fix it. Other than that, get the new fabrics dirtied up and you're about done.

On a practical note, you may want to consider attaching your ammo belt to your girth somehow in the future. That would keep them aligned and looking good through a whole day of trooping without having to worry about it. ;)

The kit is looking amazing, I'm loving the detail! It does appear that the torso plates will need some trimming for spacing overall. The chest plates and diamond appear a bit crowded, but it looks like they might need a bit of a trim all around.

Getting close vod!  :mcq1:

Got an update addressing issues that have been dealt with...

Loin cloth redone, looks much more like a finished piece now. I do agree that the narrowing of it was needed.

I now have velcro on the inside of my ammo belt that holds onto my girth belt to address movement.

Trimmed and permanently set snaps for proper spacing of plates.

Hope I have corrected concerns. Thanks for the constructive feedbacks Vods.

So much difference such a small change can make. I cannot wait to see this kit come through OM.
