I do love a Fett build :) Great work, all coming together nicely. I don't have that jetpack harness (but I want one) I think that once you have a proper test fit, you should find you won't have an issue.

Same, this shot may help though.

That link is flight suit and harness.
My issue is the material at the bottom of the vest that covers the harness.  It bunches up and might cause me a problem when i go to fit the jetpack on the rail that sticks through the half circle opening at the bottom of the backplate.

Check out the slots cut on the ESB promotional costume's vest

Thank you.  I am still on the fence how to tackle this best.  I will work with one of my local seamstresses and do a fitting and go from there.  In the meantime, i will be starting the weathering of the flightsuit soon.

Here is what i did about the vest and harness


And here is some more fitting tests for plate alignment and velcro attachment before i had the harness openings sewn into the vest.



I still need a little more velcro under the armor and possible some snaps or magnets to ensure proper alignment after washing vest or anytime i need to remove the plates.  Once they are all aligned, I will mount the snaps for the Diamond.

Nice work my man! I hate to say it but the back plate does look a little too wide for you though :/ The shoulder bells could perhaps do with being raised a fraction too, but other than that it's looking good to me :D

Here's to hoping that the backplate will look better once the harness is holding it closer to my body like it should. I'm not even sure how I would trim it down if it's not good enough. Once the flightsuit, jet pack and belts are on I think it should be good.   Good point about the shoulders.

I think the shoulder armor looks like it's in the right spot compared to the shoulder seam of the vest, the shoulders of the vest are just a bit wide.  You could move them up a bit if you like but you won't be able to see very much of the sleeve ribbing.

Looking really nice I agree with BobaFiend about the shoulders.

All right experts,  I know this still has a bit of work to do but i had to do another round up to see where i stand.
 
 
Things i know:
Right gauntlet hose still needs to be connected.  I have a plan.
I still need to attach the diamond once the plate placement is finalized
shin tools are still being finalized
Cape is waiting for collar to be finalized and have the studs attached
wookie braids need to be secured in place
knee launchers need the little bit of paint on them
of course helmet paint and jetpack
still a little bit of weathering to do on gloves and flight suit.
 
 
Other than that please feel free to offer suggestions for improvements.

Bravo good sir! You wear your Fett well :)

Feedback:

-Your flight suit is suspiciously clean.... ;)
-Your gauntlet hose is probably WAY  too long. Mine is about 6 inches.
-I don't know what's going on with your girth belt, but something is up. We should be able to see more of it. The way mine is worn is that I put half of it over the cod, and wear the ammo belt over the other half.

Suggestions:
-Take your time with the painting. I've seen too many Fetts get burnt out from trying to do the damn thing over night. I did mine about 1 panel a night. Same to your jetpack.
-You said you still needed to secure your braids, right? I put thread through them and through my vest, so now the go no where.
-If you decide to upgrade your boots, definitely go with the MOW's 2013. They're wicked nice and highly accurate.

Good stuff though! I can't wait to see it finished :D

Thank you for the comments!!!  The flight suit has a little weathering but will get more.  The hoses are long because I am planning to attempt attaching the buckle to the jp harness. Still working the the details. I want it secure so I don't rip fabric should it catch on something. I will def take my time on the remaining painting.  I will get the braids secured next chance I get to work on the kit.
