I agree with Bryn on everything he said.  One thing to look at is the spacing of the back plate to your collar.  The spacing on your left shoulder is much larger as compared to your right.  This could be how the back plate is sitting on you but something to keep in mind.

Thanks for the input guys.

I'm following the neckseal guide here on the mmcc boards to build a full neck seal.

Flank plates are definitely on my list, once I have the chest sizing and positioning completed. if they look good to go then I can get started.

VAMBRACE  AND HELMET UPDATE:

So finally finished (for now) my scratch built Vambraces.




Left hand Vambrace is a slicing/hacking pad with dart launcher. As I think I've mentioned before my eventual goal is the Urban Assault brigade, and one of the reqs for that is one or more entry devices. So I've got some breaching charges, and a door slicing pad as well. (Note: since I took the pics without the flightsuit on, i shoved some padding into the Vambrace so it wouldn't slip around, had a little too much which is why the forearm looks a little snug)


I made a telescoping data jack based on the astromech Jack for slicing terminals and doors for when demo charges are too loud.


The Right hand Vambrace is a dual blaster platform. I opted to go with blasters instead of the flame thrower since my main blaster is a big shotgun and I felt it would be a more rounded addition.



Obviously these Vambraces are rather worn and weathered, so I went back and weathered my previously rather shiny bucket to match




So the lower mandible is actually removable


And is friction fit in.

SHOTGUN COMPLETED:

and to round off this batch of updates, I finished my Mando's primary weapon, the tactical shotgun. Filled in all the screw holes and broke up the profile a bit more as well as dimmed some of the brighter LEDs. The white tactical lights are all button activated and kept at full brightness.

Small update: Belt

Weather has been completely crappy and slowed me down a bit, but I did manage to knock out a new belt for my kit.

The canvas belt I originally had was unmodified and basic and didn't match the kinda look im going for. Several Facebook comments recommended a clone trooper styled belt, so I began researching and building and here is what I came up with.


Front


Left side medical kit and grenade (sheath and knife in progress)


Left side, 2 more grenades (still need to be filled and sanded) and a drop leg belt for an eventual sidearm holster.


Back

Nice! The belt looks great! The sash may need to be shortened a bit, but it all looks fantastic!

Agreed, it's not sewn yet and estimating from the picture it's about 1.5 inches wider than it will be when I actually sew it, I just wanted a better backdrop for pics so I threw the fabric on.
