Jacad's Soft equipment WIP
« on: Mar 19, 2012, 03:49 AM »
 Here is where I'll post everything related to soft equipment for my V2 kit.

As I calculated, I'm guessing it'll take more than a year to complete this kit. So this year, I want to tackle all my soft equipment.

It'll also be here where I'll ask questions So I am not making a hundred threads asking questions

My List:

Flightsuit: ???

Flak vest:    ;) Just got my vest from Kr'aam, It's a beaut!

Girth Belt:  ;)

Brown Leather belt: Where can i find some good ones?

Ammo Pouches: I'm currently Eyeing Mosin Nagant Ammo pouches, there maybe other ammo pouches I could find, like Kar98 Ammo pouches.

Carpenter Pouch: I found a nice one, haven't got it yet, just need to cut off the logo, this pouch is for my tools, since I volunteered to be the clan engineer

Ankle Spats: just ordered a pair of Boba styled spats

Cape:  ;) Have one, just need to downsize it and weather the living crap of out it!
 
Gloves:  Thinking about getting some Boba style

Neck Seal:  ;) it's built into the vest, no worries!
 
Boots:  ;) I'm using my first kit's boots, might add toe spikes if I know how

leather holster:

Jetpack Harness

Here is my Flight suit I got.

It's a one piece coverall of the medium size. It's well-fit on my frame. I can do nearly everything with no problem, squatting, jumping. When I raise my arms up though, all sleeves reside.

I'm quite certain It'll not be a problem as I begin this as my kit's foundation.



Being a Color nazi, I am quite happy this is almost the same color as the paint I use for my bucket. It isn't precise but close.



Another thing I'm very happy about is that is has a few pockets, not as many as my air force flight suit.

I got a question that may require some color judgement:

My primary colors of my kit is Black and Dark green. Gray happens to be my accent color. Is it alright to have off white to sort of counter the dark colors?

This is sort of a rough look of what i'm talking about.

The Gray being my flak vest and the off white coming off my girth belt, ankle spats and neck seal?

After hearing some people's feedback around me, I found Navy blue to be a better accent color for my secondary accent color instead of off white. So that means my ankle spats, girth belt and neck seal will be navy blue

Question: What type of gloves should I look for?

I always keep seeing these Utility gloves in hardware stores. I like how fit they are, but I hate that they have their logos plastered all over them. Should I still look at these with interest? IF so, What methods should I use to get their logos off?

I'm using hands guards to cover up the logo on my gloves

Well, I got my hands on some Utility gloves. I Like how these have spandex, allowing my hands to breath. I thought about cutting the tip of the index finger...

What do you guys think?


Oh and I'm definatly putting armor over the top of my hands

As I'm waiting for my Girth belt to arrive. I'm am debating whether I should buy these Ankle spats that TK-409 have for Boba fett or should I make my own Ankle spats?

I have decided I am going to make my own Neck seal, thanks to Sahi's tutorial. Both are gonna be Navy blue.

Why I'm putting Ankle spats in a Jango Style kit is for two reasons:

- My boot plate armor is black and so are my boots. The Ankle spats will dispel the colors a bit.
-As a possible method in helping for boot plate attachment
