Sorry for the delay, but now it's time for updates!

Starting with the beautiful parts and accessories I received from OriKad.

My NME jetpack, all finished:





















WESTAR-34s:

















Earcaps and rangefinder stalk:







Ammo belt:











Holsters:











And now, for what I did.

Preliminary suit up with the jetpack and back plate, to test them:









And more rub'n buff!

Cod:









Thigh plates:







Shoulder plates:







Collar plate (which I know might need to be replaced):







Gauntlets:

























Gauntlet parts:







(this one below needs work, I know)











Shin plates:







So, vode, if ANYTHING, and I mean anything, needs work, PLEASE tell me.

And please excuse the large amount of photos. Wanted to make sure all the details were visible, especially for criticism.

That's all, folks. Thank you!   :jango:

I like the progress you've made. Keep it up.

(Sorry I don't have any criticisms or recommendations, I don't have the proper training.)

The rub n' buff looks really evenly done, minus the few parts you've already mentioned. 

Jetpack looks good, just don't forget the four Phillips head style screws in the bottom vent of the pack.

Gotcha. Everything else is good? No need to make any changes aside from weathering the plates?

Aside from seeing how it sits when you wear it, it looks like Jango armor!  :jango:

Yes everything looks awesome! Love the progress. You are planning on putting your harness under your flak vest correct?  And will you be able to use that piece for the cod plate I made for you?

Yes. As I said, that suit up was preliminary; just testing the back plate and jetpack, really. It was simply easier to put the harness on over the vest.

And yes, I'll be using that piece. If you look, you can see the beginnings of the screw holes for where it will go. We simply forgot about that piece in the hustle and bustle of everything.

Thanks, ner vod! Glad to get feedback from another Jango.  :jango:

Finally, some real progress!

If no one has anything to say about them, I think I can safely call these done.

The girth belt needs a new loop since the other one didn't fit, but that's an easy fix. And heads up, it has a bit of give to tuck the cod under; other than that, it fits perfectly.












Flight suit close-ups:

(Indoor artificial light)








(Indoor natural light)










(Outdoor natural light)










(and a few extras taken several weeks ago just in case)



(indoor natural light)



(indoor artificial light & possible camera flash)



(outdoor natural light)

The suit looks a tad more pink in person, but that's also an easy fix if anyone thinks it needs more blue.

Minor progress:









Visor/mandible area on the helmet is pretty much good to go. Gonna fix the seam and add another coat of rub'n buff, and I need to get the cheeks down to a matte texture.



Added the screws to the exhaust port, though a little bit of the surface cracked. Just gonna add some bondo and paint, and the jetpack should, at long last, be done.











Knees are coming along, and finally close to rub'n buffing, BUT, if worst comes to worst, I will resin cast them, or buy a set. Depends on what you experts think.

Shape of the knees looks pretty good, but I'm seeing some pitting at the tops and sides of the knee that needs to be filled and smoothed. 

The rub n' buff looks like it took very nicely to the helmet, but I'm seeing some cracks along the seam line of the dome that will need to be repaired. 

Colors look pretty good too, but the tape lines along the cheeks need some attention as it looks like there was some tape pull.

Not much in the way of progress, and bad quality photos, I know, but I figure it's still worth showing. Finally finished the knees. Now I just need to know if these will pass muster, or if I should buy a set and use these for a different kit. If they're okay, then on to weathering. If you need close-ups or better quality pics, PLEASE tell me, and I'll take more.
