    Speaker in the M,O,M abb plate,

    I was just looking through the gallery to find if there are any pics that you can see how the armor is attached to the vest (if any one has found any please add the to the thread) when I noticed these 2 images were you can clearly see there is a small speaker behind the abb plate, This may be old news but ive not seen it mentioned , it also adds to reason that would have there originally been a mic in the helmet, as if you look in the PP2 pics you can see that there is a wire that runs up in to the helmet, As my intention is to build an as screen accurate as possible PP2 suit id like to find out as much about the workings of all of the components under the armor as much as on top

    Also in this PP2 pic as well as the wire going to the helmet, which does look alot like the kind of wire that used to be attached to those small micraphones that came in those do it your self electronic kits back in the 70s and 80s,
    and you can easily see the wire going under the abb plate up to were the are located on the MOM pics,

    I already noticed the speaker in the abdominal plate (although I'm not the only one) and the best proof of the working speaker is the Supertrooper footage (see more here ==> SuperTrooper Footage - New Link on StarWars.com) as we hear Duwayne Dunham's distorted voice while Ben Burtt points to the abdominal plate as the source of the sound.

    As for the armor attachment to the vest, there are several images that shows grommets on the vest and plastic screws glued on the armor and attached to the vest with plastic nuts:

    See, Raf is the man.
    Raf, if they actually make a fett movie, they should hire you as an advisor. You probably know more about fett than anyone left at lucasfilm.

    Thanks for the kind words, but I don't think I know that much about Fett, because I work with the same material that is available to you. My only guilt is that I spend too much time with the research...

    I wanted to post this info earlier but the net at my work was down. Here are my measurements of the parts used to attach the armor to the vest:

    And these are some pretty close variants of the parts used:

    And a sketch of these parts:
