Realy nice armor Vod ;) But aren't soft parts a little too shiny? Could be a flash in camera but vest looks like it would be grey/silver?

It is a shiny material.  It is not the same fabric but very close, its just that it has NO weathering on it and you can see so much of it.  Once i get the plates mounted on it and a little weathering it should come together better.  I havent had a chance to do another test fit since then but i am concerned about the diameter of the arm openings, they look a little tight now that i look at the pic.  I'll have to try it on again and take a closer look.
from CRL: Must be light gray in color and weathered.
The actual fabric is on the right.

Here is a very initial test fitting.  Plates will be adjusted, weathering will be added, etc.  I was working on attachment method and really wanted to get a pic with what i had on just to see how it looked.  The black spot over the chest plate is part of the wiring for the display that hasn't been routed yet.

Nice kit!

The shoulder bell looks like it needs to come up a bit. As you mentioned the chest armor is not placed right.

Your thigh pouches look a bit low and the legs are a bit baggy, you could sew the crotch in a bit that will pull the thighs up and tighten up the baggy look.

Good choice on the ROTJ, too many ESB's out there  ;)

The legs have had me pretty upset lately as a matter of fact. I am thinking about folding the suit over itself under the vest to pull the whole lower body up a little bit with snaps.

Jon, I swear to god I'll drop you.  ;D

Looking good! The chest/ab looks like it could come up a hair, as the ab is hanging off the bottom.

That's one way of going about it, but you'd have much better success sewing a panel out of the midsection rather than just bunching it up and adding snaps to keep it up.  That will lead to problems in your midsection with so many other pieces going on.  Many Fetts have issues here anyway getting a cod, girth, ammo belt, divers belt, and vest hem to all sit properly.

Decided to try a new test fit since some flight suit alterations, could use some feedback as i move forward if anything needs to be changed. Bear in mind, weathering will be after i get it all looking right. I was hoping to have the girth belt on but it is too big and will be exchanged for a smaller one this week. Once this much is sorted out, i will add the connection for gauntlet hoses in the flight suit and start getting flak vest and plates aligned.

Looks real nice, I don't see anything wrong with the fit.

Your cod piece seems to be sitting a bit low, it's touching/covering part of your thigh pouch but that's just a matter up pulling it up a 1/2".

I agree, good improvement! And I second the comment on the cod. 

Those hoses look hilarious with nothing to hook into yet  :laugh:

What have other people done between harness and backplate?  I have not tried it all on yet but this is on my duct tape dummy so it should be close. 
Also is a pic of my shin tool progress. I have a feeling I'll have a Patterson chemical stirrer in my stocking from Santa.
