Nice progress! Absolutely loving that vest for slightly obvious reasons.

Thanks guys. I'm really fortunate to have Bat Akaan on this with me. We're really rolling on this. Of course we broke a few eggs along the way lol.

Sanded down armor tonight!


A good motivator!

Bat Akaan knocked it out the park with the girth belt!




Hopefully this weekend we can finish vest as well as painting the armor!

I did the final sanding on the armor tonight

Took a bit but finally got all the pieces sanded while Bat worked on my vest

Once I finished sanding, I put the velcro backing in the pieces and then we did a rough fitting of the armor on the vest

We then fit and re-cut the back plate

Bat got all the velcro attached to my vest

Getting closer and closer! I had a mix up with the flight suit and have to get that squared away. Not worried about that though. Having to exercise serious patience!

Shevla, between Fallout 76 BETA sessions I cut a hole in your breast armor. 

Got my flight suit in and removed all visible zipper tonight!
Surprised I didn't poke myself

Bat got the neck pieces finished!



Getting there! Still have quite a bit to do.
