Finished the sash (soft upholstery leather) with two attached belts. This is actually one item so I'm making another belt.  It attaches to the flak with velcro (glued and riveted) in the front/back. The belt then attaches to itself in the back with velcro (glued/riveted).  The leather belts attached to the sash are riveted and washers provide support on the back.






Cut up a hard hat to extract the harness/connectors and installed it, and the visor, in the bucket.




Got initial fitting with the help of the local Ruus'alores Bryn Cin'Prudii Gr'c Me'suum'ika.

2nd set of pre-app photos taken.  Buckles taken in on flak to cinch up more. Painted the buckles and highlighted.  Dart on the flak jacket. Visible weathering on the pants, flak, and shirt.  A sliver taken off the top of the left chest piece for more even spacing.  Pant legs and shirt sleeves taken way in as well.

Vod, this is a solid build! Pat yourself on the back my man! Couple things I'm noticing:
The chest plate to collar spacing on the top left of the chest plate is looking a bit tight. Sometimes this can be fixed by angling the chestplates a litter further inward.
The shoulder and collar plates appear to be touching, the shoulder plates may need to be adjusted or trimmed to avoid contact.
I'm not sure if the loin cloth is a separate belt than the one I'm seeing with the horizontal pattern, but if they are all one belt, you will need an additional belt.

Good luck!

Thanks for the input Kol Varek!  The spacing has been addressed.  The sash is chrome-tan leather and has two overlapping leather belts that are attached to it and can hold items.

Great job so far, can't wait to troop beside you when we start getting events again.

The few things I have noticed right off the bat. The loin cloth and sash doesn't appear weathered enough to match the rest of the kit. The app team might call it as inconsistent weathering.

The 2 overlapping belts since they are attached to the sash, should technically only count as 1 waist item. In this case a sash, you will need 2 of the 3 waist items, sash/girth-belt , gun belt, or ammo belt. If you don't want to run another belt, I would suggest loading up on a couple of more pouches to the existing "belt" and hang a piece of fabric out from the bottom of one side in the front. This will give the appearance that you have a fabric sash under the leather belt. A friend of mine did it with a leather waist item that he was trying to get approved.
You have some visible bagginess/bunching in the vest and right sleeve, the app team usually calls those items out. This could just be a kit up issue so pay a little attention when you kit up to those areas. But the other issues will most likely get dinged.
