    I got everything together so that I could suit up, minus jetpack, for the first time. I have some tweaks to do here & there.

    I started my helmet and stopped before the dome stage. The sanding and prep with bondo was way beyond my patience.

    Thanks guys for the kind words.

    Finished up the painting on my jetpack. Did the weathering & added the symbols & striping. Hand painted all of the symbols & tried to make them look as they do on the reference photos. I am finishing up the stabilizer & beacon so that these can get attached & need to add the hooks.

    Touched up the paint along the edge of my back armor where I had to shorten it. I was going to repaint the whole thing but opted to just do some touching up at this time & blend things in.

    Awesome work on your pack, you have some very clean lines. What is the length of the two white "step" things (not sure what else to call them, lol) on your pack? I think that mine are a little short. Your blending on the back armor turned out really nice as well.

    Thanks Lance for the kind words.

    Measured the white area length & they are just a hair over 8 inches. Mine may be a little short as well did some scaling to see how close mine is to actual length & came up with 8.250" long, but found where it was also stated as being around 7.875". Checked the WOF templates & they measure 7.250" if you go by his 1" scale. Your pack looks really good & well proportioned. Hope this helps.

    Finished up the flak vest putting slot in the shoulders & at the bottom of the back for the jetpack harness support. Being a MOW flak vest it opens on the side so had to make a flap at the lower back to be able to slip over the jetpack harness. Used velcro to attach the flap.

    Mounted the Fettronic's display on the left chest plate. Used velcro. I did attach the 2 boards together where the LED's are so that it would stay in alignment. Used a piece of velcro that has "T" hook on it for the lower attachment & put 2 velcro straps on the top to keep it secure. Sewed a button hole in the flak vest to slip the wire through. Going to mount the battery box on my lower left side on the inside of the flak vest, going to make a velcro sling.

    Attached the jetpack hooks that I got from full metal fett. Finished up my scratch made stabilizer & beacon. Got those painted & mounted.

    Great setup, Chris! I really like your solution for the jetpack harness + vest. If my MOW harness isn't as comfortable as I would like (with the weight, etc.) I'll definitely hit up your harness. Also interested to see how you place the battery box inside the vest.

    I like the magnet idea for the gauntlets. How is this holding up? Magnets will probably be easier than a hinge.

    So far they are holding up pretty well. I did put epoxy putty around the magnets to give them some more support. I haven't trooped in then yet so not sure about the long term yet. But these magnets hold very well. If the halves get within 2 inches of each other they are drawn together.

    Tighten the upper jetpack straps to get the collar to come down...the sagging is pushing on the bottom of the backplate making the collar choke you, the knee and thong straps are a bit white...might wanna dirty them up like the rest of the suit? Might be lighting though

    Thanks guys for the kind words, couldn't have done it without all of the knowledgeable people here & TBHG. It is nice to have it to a wearable stage, can't say it is done cause upgrades & improvements will always be happening.

    Thanks for the advice, since the photos I have adjusted the straps on the harness. The jp like you said was hanging way to far out. Was happy with the height just needed to be pulled forward.

    The elastic straps were weathered but didn't photograph well so I have since weathered them some more to make them look more grungy. I wasn't happy with how white they looked.

    I may do some more weathering on the flight suit as well. Just doesn't look as dirty as I would like.

    Hey man,
    Your build is by far one of my favs. I am trying your method for the back armor my trash can one was warped in the shoulders and i was just not happy with it. I bought the 30 ply architecture board and the smooth cast. Should i double up the board or is single ply ok? also how much smooth cast do i use and how did you apply it to the board? Thanks
    Matt
