Still to do:
- Add a few more straps & velcro
- Replace the ammo belt
- Make holsters
- Add diamond
- Finish helmet
- Make spats
- Make bracers (see below)

Started my bracers.


I also did a test fit.  Ignore the helmet, its only for reference.

I like those shoulders.

Move up the girth a little.  a lot of bigger guys like to overlap their ab plate with the girth belt or sash.

That's a really popular ammo belt these days.  They didn't offer that tan yet when I got mine.

I was talking to a buddy today and he pointed that out too.  I never noticed that is how people wear a girth belt.  In the pic I had in like a regular belt.  Going to try that tonight see how it fits.

Cross referencing with earlier pics of where the thighs are sitting, the cod looks to be way too low. Pull it up and then sit the girth and ammo belt over the top of the cod and ab plates. Should also pull the ab plates into you as they seem to be sticking out a little at the bottom at the moment.

Also, most people are photobombed by cats or dogs not little toy cars :P

I got both, you can see my kitty on the bottom left ;)  Yeah I adjusted the girth belt to put it around the last plate last night.  Looks a lot better.  I have to play with the cod (yes that sounds bad) a bit.  I have it hanging from my belt on my actual pants.  Going to look at other ways to attach it and even make it smaller.

Here is my test fit.  Going to make a couple changes.  I don't like the wraps around my feet, also I need armor, so I'm just going to use the wraps around my shins.  I'm making spats for the boots.  the rest of the changes are just weathering type stuff.

It looks to me like your chest and middle ab plate need to be shaped to be a bit more close to your body.  otherwise it pretty good to me, any other angles?

Looking great! I'm really liking the weathering on these colors.  I concur with Jorad, that middle ab plate is wonky.  I'm pretty sure it's because your lowest ab plate is being held in place by your girth belt and it's bringing that one plate in too tight.  I'd suggest revisiting the shaping of your ab plates and get them to really wrap around you close, that way when your girth belt brings them in, they don't flex out like they did in your pic.  One more thing, make sure you weather your soft goods to match - it'll take your kit to the whole next level.  Great work!

Great lookin kit there Ronan. I am with the above posts, and I think it is being caused by the girthbelt situation.

I'm sure i'll get a chance to see it in person this week, so we'll take another look at it then. But it does look like your chest/ab plates could be formed a little closer to your actual body.

Keep at it ner'vod, you're dang close now
