Armor WIP

This is a bit of a weird angle, but here’s what I got so far.




Chest plates at a close view. Right shoulder bell is missing in lieu of a bigger shoulder piece I wear, though I do have a normal one cut as well, if it’s needed.

Do you have a picture of your right shoulder coverage?  You'll need to have some kind of shoulder armor - pauldrons alone don't count for shoulder coverage per the CRLs.

It looks like you are far along in your build.Are those your final boots in the first photo? If so you will want to work on adding some spats or boot armor to cover up your laces too.

Pics of right shoulder with and without the cover. I actually just found a new pair of boots that I like better, so I think I’m gonna use those from now on.



Here’s a bit of a close up of the chest plates

I like this kit!

A couple of things you will want to look into would also be your Ab plate, and flightsuit.

You’re ab plate should come up about 1/2”-1” to match the spacing between the top of your chest plates and bottom of the collar.  You may have to trim the bottom of your chest plates or sides of the Ab to achieve the correct spacing around the Ab plate.

You’re flightsuit also appears a little baggy around your knees and ankles area and should be taken in. You’ll also want to remove the pocket on your flightsuit legs.

Those should all be fairly quick adjustments. I look forward to seeing your progress vod!
