    Looks great man! What is that armor made out of? Aluminum? The jumpsuit is a bit dark, but its looking great other than that. Also is that a Rubies? Nice rework if it is that! Keep it up! It'll look a lot more complete with the center diamond also btw (or tractor beam as it apparently is).

    Your ammo pouches seem a little large, but they look very well-made. Where did ya get those?

    thnks guys..i still think mine looks a bit off...maybe its those pouches..

    I got them made locall (singapore) and i paid alot for those (abt USD140)...and its real good quality....but now it seems too big..any suggestions??

    The armor are just aluminium....not those thick one, just the 5mm thick sheets so i could handle with my sheares...but would probably upgrae them in the near future...

    I also think the jump suits a big too baggy at the legs...

    i need more comments and some ways to fix any flaws u guys think u can find..

    thnks!

    a good start, armor seems a bit big...in pulling this off correctly i think porportion is the way go....

    i see these big guys and think to my self???? why not make the armor to fit them rather than a big guy in a little suit type scenario!

    it should hug your body! you notice what we see, the suit and flak is a bit baggy. etc...

    porportion is the key to any good suit...screen accurate or not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    overall a good start

    Re: almost there.....

    Looks good but as FOIOOO said "proportion" is the way to go.
    The thigh pieces seem a bit oversised to me but that could just be because you do not have the holsters on.
    I think the best way to tell is get kitted out fully (gauntlets/holsters etc) then see what needs to be adjusted.

    Re: almost there.....

    Well said, FOIOOO. Proportion makes all the difference, which is why it's almost pointless (in my opinion) to rely on armor templates and mass-produced armor when building your suit. Of course, it's usually easier and cheaper that way, but proportion is key if you want it to look right.

    Bleahhh... good start with the trimming. As for the bagginess in your suit, it will probably look better when it's covered with armor, gauntlets, leather belts, etc.
