Thanks. Needs some alterations before I can get OM. Shoulder needs adjustments as shoulder armour cannot be used as bicep armour. On a technicality it is shoulder armour much like Roman Centurions, but that's a debate for once I finish everything else.

Need to make sure my gaters are not flaring out as much, and I want to add boot and toe armour so I can combine that.

Armour spacing and the ab plate needs adjustments.

Weathering on the off shoulder and gaunts.

The armour won't be OM for the upcoming event, but I can still wear it. Then I can finish the first round of upgrades.

I haven't scrolled back far enough to see how armor is attached, but you could benefit from a more precise method. I have Velcro along long edges and snaps on corners. The pic with your helmet off, pressing against the chest plate moves it so much. That shouldn't happen.

The back edges of the collar are "floating" up too. If you had a backplate attached to collar, that would be held down, but with just a cape, the cape needs to attach to the collar, you you need to anchor that back edge to the vest. Floating, unsecured armor just looks sloppy and You'll be adjusting it all the time.

Armour was on hold during a trip, and while waiting on bought pieces from TMA. Received those and now it's assembly time.









Back plate might need some heat forming, gauntlets I am not going to add hinges, just going to glue the outside pieces.

Toppers will be hot glued on, but that is so I can add electronics later.

If anyone can link to awesome display led tutorials that a real noob can follow along feel free to link them or PM me.

Making stuff removable, you may want to drill holes and use screws/t-nuts instead of hot glue. Hot glue may deform parts of vac-form armor if you overdo it. It also may not have enough hold and you don't wanna lose parts while you're wearing something that doesn't allow you to bend over and pick it up (if you even notice it fall off).

Thanks for the tip.

I only want it removable the one time, until I have put the electronics in. Then I will secure it with something much stronger.
