I'd tuck the plate under the chest leather.That way, when you bend over, the abs plate slides under the chest plate.Trust me, it's more comfortable that way.
Hahaha, yeah i saw that when I was loading the pictures and wondered if anyone else you catch it. Good eye. I also dripped a spot of stain on my backpack that has to be fixed as well.
It was a joke... I see nothing wrong at all, but damn I'll be staring at them all day now trying to find it
We can't have that! I guess I'll just have to go dust off that old thesaurus!
Seugtai Girl, i'm really looking forward to seeing this finnished .
Brilliant! This build is looking better than I imagined it! I really hope I can see it in person someday
Sorry, another thought that may or may not help. I was noticing the rivet heads are silver and brass, an old trick we used to do in the military was to use a black sharpie, yes, a black permanent ink sharpie and color over the shiny bits that showed from where the paint or such had worn off. The neat thing is, that once it is dry, it weathers naturally from use and will show shiny rub points and such as you go. When, or if it gets to the pure shiny phase again, you just break out the sharpie and do it again. If you don't like it, use alcohol to rub it off. If you intend to leave the rivet heads silver and brass, then never mind. :-) Just a thought and I'm only talking about the rivet heads, not your brass collar piece, that is fantastic in brass.
I would leave the small gap for flexibility sake and what you can do is when you are weathering it up, you can put some dark brown or black rub behind the plate in that space of fabric to darken that space up and it will end up blending into the background. Besides, dirt, water, etc. would naturally end up in cracks and crevices. So when you weather that space, it would be darker anyway. That will reduce the visibility of the space, so I would say don't worry about it. Ultimately, the test wearing will tell you what to do with it anyway. Cai't wait to see test fit pics. Keep up the stellar work. I agree going to have to break out the ol' thesaurus as well... :-)On another note I have ordered the base piece that I am going to use for my chest armor for my late era/KOTOR era mando. I haven't started a WIP yet as I'm still figuring things out and don't want to start a thread until I can make some serious progress on it. Cya.
Is that a gentle prod to get moving and finished already? LOL Me too Remo, me too.
