I'm starting to feel pretty good about this kit. Gave it the first run as pictured above at an event.
No part failures during wear of it, had a few putting it together friday night.
While it doesn't have the same identification as the modern era armor, I was pointed out as a Mandalorian a few times. We have a very educated fan base it seems, it was always "Mandalorian, like boba fett" not "there's boba fett".
A change I will make is make the chest latch to the girth belt, and some changes on the suit itself like removing/moving some of the pockets.
I just stopped and looked at the requirements and did a double take. From the looks of it, I need a codpeice or equivalent, boot armor (only due to the laces, unless I go with some without), shoulders and a finished bucket and I cover the requirements for Late Era.
Not that I'm going to do just the bare minimum, I need some shin armor to tighten up the flight suit on the shins anyway, and If I'm doing that and boots, well, doing up some thighs and knees just makes sense.
