Said the guy who's making metal armour :D YOUR armour looks bad-shebs and I feel it will be a beauty once it's done! Not to mention colour scheme ;)

Cod + butt plate progress:

Sorry for the crappy quality of pictures below. My front camera sucks and it's pretty hard to take good pictures of myself by myself

^Need opinion #1 - does it make my junk look... big? :s

^Need opinion #2 - any ideas if this will pass as an ammo/utility belt? with added molle pouches of course

Unless every inch of strapping is covered, no.  MOLLE is not acceptable.

Well, the main idea is to cover the strapping :) what about the buckle, which is on the back, then - acceptable?

I... don't see a buckle.  Pics?  If it's the standard black parachute clip, it might fly, but...

Heh, I had no idea they're called "parachute clips". here in Poland they're just "clips/buckles"
Anyway, here it is:

I suppose I could do something cheap like this and hide it:

Yeah, those are fine. I believe here in the US, they're labeled "parachute clips" or "quick release clips"

Ever since I built my gauntlets I had no idea how to attach the rocket on the left gauntlet and yet make it detachable... as my gaunts are scratchbuilt and there's a crapload of filler on the left gauntlet, the screws were a "no no" and I didn't want to drill any wide holes for rare earth magnets. But today I made something that I am really proud of and I don't think I saw it done here (granted - I haven't searched through the WHOLE forum). Here it is:

Mini Jack plugs on the rocket

Mini Jack sockets on the gauntlet

Et voilą!


Close up shots, note that they're not fully plugged in, there's still that one last "click". Ignore the gauntlet colour - it's pretty bright outside today.
As always - any comments are welcome

Hah!  Major points for creativity.  Are you going to use adhesive to keep it in there, or are you gonna leave it as is, so it's removable?
