I just meant the area under the ears (where you have that round vent sitting in your picture)

I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. I will have to play around with the setup to see if I can get it to work well. I really appreciate all of your input Naasad!

Ok, so I have been fiddling with some ideas. I really like the slats that the original vents had, so I started thinking ‘what if I cut them out and still used them?’ I cut up a scrap piece of sintra and inserted the cut slats into it. If I used this idea I would sink the slats down into the bucket and maybe add a little lip of pop up around the inset for interest. It is hard to mock the idea, but I hope you can kinda see what I am seeing in my head.
I like the rectangular shape much better than the circles, and I think making it look inset instead of on top might help it flow better. The final product would be shorter than what the mock up is, and probably thinner too. I just need fresh eyes at this point. I have a tendency to fixate on things I think will work. Here is the bad mock up and a hand drawing



The other option is just slits in the sides. If I were to do that I would want them fairly small to avoid visibility. Somewhere between 3-5 slits up each side like so


If you guys have any other ideas, please shout them out. Definitely could use some input and whatnot here.

Well guys, like usual I let my thread go necro and then bring it back to life. I like to live life on the edge.  :P

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I worked on my shnees a little bit back in July and then got sidetracked by life in August when hubby and I found out we are expecting. We are due in April, so I only have a month or so left to fit into my suit until little one wants more room. I'm not sure I can even fit into it now as my flight suit was tailored fairly tight  :laugh:

I won't be doing any bondo work myself or any huge modifications to my bucket like I hoped I would get to, but I'm still chugging away at it.

Just wanted to give a quick update to those of you following this build wondering what the heck is going on.

So.... I am back! I was itching to kit up again and finally got around to it. Lots of things are going to need fixing though. I wanted to lose the baby weight, but it seems I lost more than I originally had. All of my cloth parts are too loose on me now. I have had material for a new flight suit since before baby came along, so I will get to sew it up soon, but I may have to make a new vest too. I am also going to have to fix armor spacing, so I may end up getting rid of my Chicago screw attachments and just use Velcro or something.

I am playing around with some ideas for my leg armor with some help from my brother. If I'm not careful I may end up redoing my whole armor to be legacy  :laugh:

Obviously spacing looks like bantha poodoo with everything fitting loose, but here are the obligatory pictures of me and my mini rocking our kits


 

I'm stoked to be back vod
