Looks good! You could always just add a little "filler port" greeblie somewhere so that you could claim to hook the pack up to that to replenish.

Awesome Idea!

Interesting idea, I'll certainly consider it.  Slight update on the thruster plates, I got some grey onto both the back plates, and I'm mostly pleased with how it turned out. The tape I used to mark it off did, unfortunately, take some paint with it when I went to remove it, so I have a bit of touching up to do before I can glue the thruster nozzles on.



Not the best shot of it on my back, but it'll do for now. We didn't realize we were holding the thruster plate to high until after the picture was taken, I actually intend for the plates to be closer together.



Another ground shot of them. You can't really see where the paint touch-ups are needed in thee photos, but they'll be easy enough to fix.

The good thing about such minor issues is that you can cover them up with well-placed weathering!
This looks seriously awesome, Sirus! Though I'm disappointed the detailing doesn't resemble dapper facial hair :P

Looking good, throw some weathering on it and scorch that plate up from the jets!

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, ran into pre-con crunch time and haven't really made time for posting until now. That being said, I'm glad this project has been given so much love, and as a reward for waiting patiently, I come bearing gifts:

First off, how it looked while attached to me at Megacon:



Admittedly not the best picture, phone camera quality, but there it is! I had just put my belt back on before this pic was taken, and the photographer neglected to mention my lower plate had caught onto one of my pouches, thus the awkward angle.

Truth be told, my armor was giving me trouble all day, and only an intervention from DGphoto4u in the form of some loctite super glue saved the heavy top piece from crashing to the ground throughout the day. Gonna work on some more solid attachment methods before my OM app, but until then, here's some of what I did earlier today:





Did some minor structural touch-ups since Megacon, and added some scuffing and weathering to it! It still needs a blackwash, but this is what it looks like as of right now.
