Looks great brother. But for me the flak vest is a little loose and as such tends to make the armour and in particular the shoulders sag too much. Kitlist please.

Excellent looking suit! Is that one of my babys on your noggin?
Oct 9, 2010, 1:37 PM - Re: My SE Fett so far...
Yeah the Flak Vest is to big, I've got to redo the back to make it tighter which will bring it all in.
I may move the shoulder armour up aswell.
Yes G, it's one of your babies. It's actually the one you done for Dave which is stickied in the Helmet section of the forum.

looks good enough that I didn't even notice the JP missing for awhile.

See what you mean G.
At the mo they are only velcroed and I want to bolt them.
It's never ending mate!

Hey Stu, looking great buddy, real nice. You could do with a nice pack and tools to finish that baby off ;-)
Oct 10, 2010, 2:23 PM - Re: My SE Fett so far...
Rob, I was gonna get in contact with you actually mate...was wondering if you might be able to help me out??
One of your new packs will finish this off nicely.

Very, very, very good job on it. Congrats.
Only things I find is (one of them I have the same issue myself), flak vest just a little loose on the belly area... I need to figure out how, but I have some ideas using some elastic strapping on the not-visible area where the jetpack could hide...
...and I see that the thigh pouches are a tad low in regard of position, perhaps repositioning them according to more better-looking measurements (about 5 cm up and 3 cm outwards, and vertically aligned). Trust me and believe me, I've had the same issue years ago when I did the undersuit myself... I had to redo the thigh pouches location, since they were too low based on ref pics and my own fitting.
Otherwise... outstanding job.

very nice bud, im slowly getting my fett together
Oct 11, 2010, 7:34 AM - Re: My SE Fett so far...
Beyond the saggy vest issue I'm noticing that the neck seal and vest are very different colors. That seems to be standing out to me more than it should.
Other than that, great build!!!

Cheers for the comments guys, really pleased I got the photos up to get some feedback.
I purchased the Flak Vest with armour already connected from a fellow Denter and the vest is to big. I need to pull in the back and fasten it with velcro and poppers, this should bring in the vest to fit me better. I literally weathered the vest the day of these photos, so I need to weather the neck seal aswell as it has no weathering at all. This should tone the colouring down to match the vest.
The actual flightsuit needs pulling up at the waist aswell which will bring the thigh pouches up and allow room for my shin tools.
When I have my next full suit up after the adjustments have been done and the JP is on, I'll post up some more pics.
Really appreciate your comments and feedback guys.
