    I re-dirtied it up a few weeks back but just got around to posting these pics. Does my vest/jumpsuit look dirty enough now?

    Jumpsuit looks great!

    May want to move the chest armor a little closer together in the middle and it'll be spot-on

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I will look into the repositioning of the chest.

    Ben, did you ever find any replacement armor?

    Looks good bro. The camera always washes the dirt from your soft parts. When I weathered mine, I almost thought I did too much, but in the pics I think it looks just right. I like how you did extra dirt in the areas that would get dirty natuarally over time, like the edges of the sleeves, top of the pouches, around the ankles. The same way I did mine. Well done

    looks great to me! i'm a big supporter of the idea of weathering a little, checking, then a little more, then checking.

    Fantastic. Looks even better in person.
    You're an expert weatherer (<-- is that even a real word?!) so I might ask you to help me weather some of my stuff, once I get it all in.

    Great weathering man, the fact you can tell it is weathered on camera lets us know in person it looks stellar. Great work!

    I can't believe I didn't notice it when I met you and when I saw it up close in person, but are the mandibles on your helmet uneven? (I know this thread is about the weathering of the soft parts, sorry)
    Did that happen between then and now? Is it just the result of maybe a weird angle in the pic, or is it a because your visor is not being stuck to the inside around all it's edges?
