Great work! Love to see really good looking, original kits like this. I really like open front leather trench jacket you have. Not often a fan of trench coats, but yours is just too well done for me not to like! Can we see a shot of the back?
I think what Serim is referring to is the large gap between the chest plates and the ab plate that's evident in your second pic.
Thanks for that! Here's the back:
BTW, the trench coat is actually not leather, but vinyl; I hit it with a mist of grey primer here and there and then some good ol' clear coat, with a bit of silver dry brush around the edges to make it look aged.
As for the chest plates, I see what you both mean; the thing is, that was the closest I could get the top of the ab plate to the diamond, and apparently the bottom contours of the chest plates are not entirely parallel to the top contours of the ab plate, as they widen towards the outer edges (hope that makes sense).
Since the plates are snapped on, I don't really have room to move... I was thinking that maybe I could sew some inner darts on the vest around the ab plate, to bring it a bit closer to the chest plates... any ideas?
Thanks for the input!
