    Nice one John, looks good - a nice fit.

    Who is the maker of the vest and armour? I ask because I have the FP3 armour and it seems to cover all of my upper body!

    Nice paint job too buddy.

    thanx Rob,

    The armour is Bobamaker and is fantastic. The flak vest I bought from Mandalore697 (aka Dan) but yet again its Bobamaker.

    to be honest, I think i will end up with most of my costume being from Bobamaker, its really that good

    All i need now is a neck

    I will be needing to mount my armour soon(ish). Any tips?

    I am thinking about marking the position of the armour on the vest, make the holes and then use the quick setting epoxy putty and fix the armour to the holes? Make sense?

    I would use this tutorial, its how i go everytime. This time around i had to adjust the bolts to suit the eyelets and it was a nightmare (do not do it this way around).
