if you look in my thread "Tavic Legacy Assassin" I think i got pics of my armor fitted already. I used glue and webbing. lots of webbing. you'll want all the flexibilty you can get in this thing, trust me.

As per the approval team, the lower plates do have to overlap. We just had two different mercs in krayt get denied due to not having them overlap.

Keep it up Vod, you're off to a great start

Have they giving them and written guidelines?  I've been poking around everywhere and haven't found them.
I made the bottom plates overlap and the top plates are butted based on some others I've seen. 
I've started painting The red is a lot more bright, just crappy lighting


For colors I'm thinking Red with some type of white stripe and black flight suit.

This is what gave me the idea.  It's by oneone1111 over on the dented helmet

It may not be specified to the letter, but when it says to look at references for guidance, no reference has the plates abutted. (With the exception of the two breast plates) everything is layered.

I concur. Red and khaki will give you a more unique look.

Sorry haven't updated this as much as a should.  been updating a thread on my clan's forum.

This is the chest piece assembled


Here are the legs & forearms


Shoulders Salvaged these from some old SCA armor I had, so they are actually metal.
 [imghttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7401478/Mando%20Links/2014-06-17%2000.10.14.jpg]http://[/img]

Added velcro to my flack vest and tried on my armor.  Also added snaps for the shoulders.  Flight suit hopefully will be here before the weekend.

Awesome kit brother, I love legacy kits when they really just WORK.

You don't really want velcro on your vest with Legacy, as Echo (Cin, now, i think?) was trying to say.  Maybe on the top of the shoulders, and at the lowest segment, just to hold everything in a constant place.  If you use the strapping method, too much velcro will cancel out the awesome "bendiness".  Are your shoulders riding under the collar?  You'll want to address that.

This is a great kit, and neither of what I pointed out are in the least bit serious.  Looking forward to more!

Thanks for the advise.  I was actually debating having the shoulders above or below.  I think Im going to trim the collar  a bit and have them sit even to each other.  The velcro is only on the top pieces and the very bottom one.  So it still have a hanging feel to it, but also stays mostly in place.

I did the thighs, shins & forearms.  Some things I still want to change.
- Adjust placement of shins & thighs (possibly ditch the straps and use snaps/velcro)
- Move the shoulder pieces down a couple inches.
- Trim armor piece around neck
- Trim & hem flack vest
- Maybe make full bracers or do something different


Still to do
- Finish helmet (just doing a basic scratch built Fett)
- Cape & loincloth
- Boot covering
- Finish weapons & make holsters
- Finish paint job & weathering

Ordered parts
- Gloves & Ammo belt should be here this week

lookin good man.  Maybe those shoulders just look a bit small on you.  I know they work fine, but I think they would look really awesome if you beefed 'em up a bit.

I didn't see a girth belt on your 'to-do' list.  Make sure you add one, in addition to the ammo belt.  They really help to fill the dead space, especially useful for bigger dudes like us.

Yeah, I might mess with the shoulders.  I'm not 100% happy with them.  Depends on how much else I get done.  I might add that to my upgrade list after I get this approved.  We have a con next month, so trying to get enough done to get approved by then. 

I will think about that girth belt too.  Didn't think about having that and a ammo belt, but might be easy to make and look better.  Here is the ammo belt I ordered.
