Your bucket is looking great, vod!  Really nice work!  Something you'll need to look at moving forward is your shknees.  Those appear to be Sith Acolyte shnkees, which would absolutely be usable on a Crusader Era kit.  For a Modern Era kit, though, they'll need to be modified enough that they're no longer identifiable as KOTOR/SWTOR Era armor.  I have no doubt you'll be able to make those work, and I look forward to seeing more progress on your kit.

Good thing you mentioned this before I added the straps 😬 I'm sure I can find a way to spice them up a little. Any recommendations?

Trauma plating on the front maybe?

Yep.  I think trauma plating would be the least complicated option.

Alright I redesigned the Shknees with some trauma plating and hole-filling. What do you think? Would this pass?



Let me know!

I think if you extend the trauma plate up to cover that trough on the shin, then it'll be just about perfect.
