Front:



Back Note the strap for one of her knees on the back view has been addressed and corrected after photographer left:



Left Side:



Right Side:



Helmet Off:



Weapons (side one):



Weapons (side two):



Pre-App Round 1 Notes

*Verbatim list sent directly to you.  Recap below.

1) Picture of plates; collar and shoulders specifically without cape on.  This is to ensure the App Team can see all your plates for judging.

2) Minor floating on the bottom fangs of your chest plates and the outside edges of the ab plate.  Also the diamond needs to be lowered and centered in space between chest plates.  A little heat on the back side of the plates could help form the plates inward without damaging your amazing paint job.

3) Flak vest is bagging in the armpit area, suggested to use a dart to bring those sides in.  This could also help with the plates floating mentioned in #2.

4) Add photos to this WIP of close ups of your soft parts and belt rig; similar to what you showed with weathering to your sash in your last post.  That way when the App Team is reviewing your App photos and WIP they can see it up close here in your WIP.  Also mentioned to add weathering to your spats and a close up of those.

5) Make sure you hide the foam better that you have attached to your knees.  It is visible on the side view.  Tightening the strap to your knees could help straighten the angle of the plate.

** Mentioned outside of the pre-app mandatory fix list was making sure all your straps are tighten and tucked in.  Specifically the straps on the back of your knees and the strap on the bottom side of your spats on your boots.

Changes requested with second round of pre-app:

Chest diamond didnít look centered in the gap.

With all of my pieces being attached with Chicago screws attached to the piece and grommets in the flak vest, that made it hard for tiny adjustments.



So I dug out the exacto and carefully chipped off the adhesive from the back to get the Chicago screws off


I took a small piece of Velcro (the only Velcro in my entire kit) and carefully sewed it on over where the grommet holes were to only the top leather layer




I pulled out the E6000 and some clamps to attach the other Velcro to the chest diamond




And now I have an adjustable chest diamond so that it can be shifted if needed.

What types of guns are those? Existing models or customs?

This will be the last content-related update for this WIP.  I will be adding my application photos here for reference, along with the extra photos that were requested. I will still answer questions about items if they come up, but with this no longer being a WIP, but approved kit, I will start a new thread for any upgrade work. Thank you all for your kind comments and assistance.

App photos






Additional photos

I still use my original WIP thread for any upgrades to my kit.  But your choice, look forward to the many upgrades/weapons added.
