Just a small text update.

Fabric for the vest and sash bought.

Also made the boot/lower leg coverings.

Just need to start adding velcro to everything.

That's a great shoulderpiece!

I like the textures of the plate and specially the black/gold version that makes it pop.

Thanks vod.

Hoping to get a full kit up done this weekend (I've just got sewing stuff to do). Then I start pre app and app process.

Interesting concept with the layered shoulder effect :). One concern worth noting that jumped out at me is that some of the lines on your trauma plate edges are a little wobbly. I can see that you're going for some asymmetry in the trauma plate layout, which is totally cool, but final product you'll want to try to straighten out the wavy lines with some sanding. Definitely gonna look like a beefy boi, though, so should be a good fit for heavy assault/heavy weapons in the long run!

Heavy weapons/assault is the goal.

Glued the gauntlets together today and sewed the vest together yesterday.

No pics as they are at my mum's place (needed her sewing machine)

I got nervous when I started scrolling this. When it was unpainted, your chest trauma plates looked a lot like my armor (in my avatar). Ha!

It all came together and looks original. Good job. I'd weather it a little though. You'll find that wearing it, washing soft parts, it'll start looking like some parts age faster than others. A weathered kit makes it all match and feel real, lived in. Everything in Star Wars is dirty.

How much does that shoulder armor restrict movement?
