OSIK!! >:( :'( :-\

So... Tried the segmented shoulder "fix", and well...  Need to replace the backplate. Didn't segment the collar, thankfully.

Time to hack-up the coat, hide this piece of osik backplate.

The shoulder tabs would not keep their curve. I've been trying to get them to cooperate for almost a year, and have finally given up on them. Cut them off to make a flat backplate, thought about welding the pieces to the collar tabs.

Scrapped the extended look on the collar, going with a duster.  Just got the sleeves cut off, and did a test fit last night.  Took a rare bathroom "selfie" (hard to do with the gloves I have  :rolleyes: ). Will update this post once I'm at a computer.

Sorry to hear about that. I feel your pain when it comes to back plates.

Thanks.  Slightly modified Nite Owl from Skirata Arms, his last run before his switchover to Head Shot Props.
