Starting my first build. Any feedback is appreciated.




I have more done but this is what I have for photos right now. More to come soon (hopefully)



Chest pieces and back pieces attached together and basic paint coat colors put on helmet.

Fair warning I like to take pictures and I've written a novel, so be prepared for both.

You might need to adjust the collar and backplate up a bit, the whole chest and back rig is sitting fairly low.

Thank you Bowfanny, I know you are an expert in this Era having had built a kit yourself.  Looking for all and future feedback for Heath (Beak) here with his kit.

Heath be sure to add the additional photos from the most recent AP on 2/11/23.
